Luxurious & rustic, romantic getaway with cathedral ceilings, directly lakefront
Ambitious and accomplished, we are an industrious duo that function as a well-oiled machine. As high school sweethearts, we grew together on the shores of Lake Champlain, then journeyed to Washington D.C. for a fresh start. We have lived the urbanite dream for nearly two decades and raised a handful of ankle-biters (yes, five!). We are able escape to our special home often, but also would like to share it with others. When we receive great reviews about our "little slice of heaven", it truly warms our heart! We feel so delighted to share our special place with the world.
Jennifer purchased this Cabin in 2005
Why Jennifer chose Plattsburgh
Fifeteen years ago we decided to purchase a cabin on beautiful Lake Champlain in order to be closer to family. Our family has spent every summer thru the years enjoying the ups and downs of transforming this once dilapidated cabin into a rustic retreat. Post-purchase, it quickly became clear that our hopes for spending time at a relaxing getaway were a bit misguided. This project-after-project lifestyle offered us the inspiration we needed to name our cozy lakefront cabin: an ironic, ‘Serenity Now’. Her name, derived from the comedic sitcom, Seinfeld, which once featured an overworked man exclaiming ‘serenity now’ amidst a variety of stressful circumstances. Our family, especially our five kiddos, found themselves affectionately adopting this phrase. With herculean effort, we have transformed this challenging fixer-upper into a modern Adirondack-style escape. Every summer a major new project is adopted which has been a delightful surprise for our returning guests. We are exuberantly proud to share her with all of you.
What makes this Cabin unique
Serenity Now is directly lakefront opposed to many other local properties which often come with a road barrier to Lake Champlain. You will find the lake by opening french doors and following a beautiful slate walkway down to a second deck overlooking the lake. We have tried hard to preserve the authentic nature of our Adirondack cabin. Guests truly feel transformed to someplace magical and serene. At Serenity Now, you are surrounded by all things beautiful and rustic. Our home is clean, comfortable and modern. There really is no "roughing it" despite the rustic surroundings and so we appeal to even the most discerning of vacationers.

It is Serenity Now!!
Jennifer has a lovely cabin on the lake. It is clean, cozy, with a fabulous view. It is 10 minutes from main street. It is perfect for a small family. Any youngster would love the private children's beds. My family had a very peaceful stay watching the ferries come and go. We would definitely recommend this cabin. Thank you Jennifer for sharing your home.

Beautiful Cabin and Location
We enjoyed our stay immensely at Serenity Now. The cabin was beautiful with many creative touches. Our daughter loved the reading nooks and spent time in them daily. The property and view was incredibly scenic and peaceful. We thank Jennifer and her family for sharing their property. Everything we needed was on hand and she did a great job af providing information on local establishments as well as interesting day trips. Thank you!! Julie,Donny and Kayla.
5 stars all around!
Spotlessly clean, great communication with the owner, gorgeous location, and thoughtful touches all around. We loved this place and can't wait to come back in the summer. The kids are already planning on how to turn their closets into sleeping nooks - thanks for the amazing idea!
