Inviting Lake Champlain, one of the largest lakes is right at your footsteps.

Motor Boats, Kayaks, Canoes

Many guests bring their motor boats, kayaks, canoes and bikes. You are welcome to leave your boats on the dock during the day but they must be moored at night. Your kayaks can be left down by the water.

Hero’s Welcome rents kayaks and canoes. There are a few places to rent sail and motor boats:

One of our most frequent questions is “Do you have a pool?” We have the sixth largest outdoor fresh water swimming pool in the United States. Great Lake Champlain (at least for 2 weeks it was) is one hundred and twenty miles long, up to fourteen miles wide and at the deepest point it is four hundred feet. Over 70 islands may be found in its clear waters. The lake forms a border with New York and Vermont on its eastern side. To the west it borders New York and the Adirondack Mountains. There are over 30 major tributaries that drain into Lake Champlain. The outflow for Lake Champlain is the Richelieu River where it flows into the St. Lawrence River. Shore Acres has one half mile of lakeshore with a 180 foot private dock and floating swim raft. Our beach is not a sandy beach but a beautiful shale and slate beach. We recommend wearing water shoes. Our water is clean and crisp with temperatures sometimes reaching into the upper 70s.
