Located in the quaint town of Willsboro on the New York shore of Lake Champlain, the Willsboro Inn is nestled directly on the calm waters of Willsboro Bay, and is perfect for family or friend reunions or business retreats. Our location in the 4-mile long bay means calm waters, virtually no speedboat traffic, amazing sailing, and plentiful fishing. Evenings in the bay feature the sun setting behind the high peaks, and the picturesque beauty of dozens of sailboats anchored in the rippling bay waters.
Within 5-10 minutes from the inn are amazing trails and scenic mountain hikes, a golf course, a beautiful sandbar beach, plenty of farm stands, and antique shops for those who love to explore local history.
The inn is directly across the lake from Burlington Vermont, which is a scenic ferry ride away via the Essex or Port Kent Ferries. You have the option to park your car and walk onto the ferry, or ferry your car over and explore Vermont. Burlington has many unique shopping, dining, and experiences, such as the Echo Aquarium and brewery tours at The Alchemist, Switchback, and Magic Hat.
