Things to do

New York State

We have accommodation on Lake Champlain in Plattsburgh in the Adirondack Mountains and in Dunkirk on the south-eastern shore of Lake Erie.


Plattsburgh offers a delightful blend of history, adventure and relaxation. Enjoy outdoor thrills, cultural experience or simply treat yourself to a tranquil getaway. The downtown district is charming and there are several ski resorts within a short drive. Throughout the year, Plattsburgh hosts an exciting schedule of events that celebrate the city’s vibrant culture. From the Mayor’s Cup Regatta, a thrilling boat race on Lake Champlain (one of the most stunning bodies of water in the region), to the Champlain Valley Fair, a week-long extravaganza featuring live music, rides, and delicious fair food. There’s always something happening in Plattsburgh to entertain and inspire.

Downtown on Margaret Street there are also a couple of antique stores (my husband calls them junk stores).

Here’s some more things to do during your vacation in Plattsburgh:
