Scenic Cruises with Lake Champlain Ferries – VT

White Ferry Boat with 2 American Flags flying from top deck, cars and people onboard.
There is something kind of serene and relaxing about being out on the open water and when you combine that with an efficient way of getting from one place to another you have it made! This is exactly what you will find on a trip with Lake Champlain Ferries.
For our guests who would like an easy, efficient, and relaxing way to travel from Vermont to New York, the Lake Champlain Ferries are the way to go. There are two pick up points very close to our inn—first in Charlotte which is a half hour away and second in Burlington which is just under an hour away. The Burlington ferry takes you across the lake to Port Kent, NY. While you enjoy beautiful views of the lake and mountains you can enjoy snacks and cold drinks. The trip lasts approximately an hour. If you have
some time to spare before you leave, there is great food at the Breakwater Cafe and Grill on the Burlington Ferry Dock. If you leave from Charlotte, the ferry will take you past spectacular views of the Adirondack and Green Mountains over to Essex, NY. This trip only lasts approximately 25 minutes. The image you see in this blog is of the M/V Adirondack, a Burlington/Port Kent crossing boat that is over 100 years old!
Another option for guests looking for something special to do is to board the Northern Lights cruise ship that offers daily lunch cruises, narrated afternoon trips, weekend brunch cruises and dinner cruises complete with great entertainment. Spend an afternoon cruising into Shelburne Bay, go past the shipyard, and around North Beach before heading back to the Burlington dock. This daily scenic cruise shares a lot of the interesting historic moments on Lake Champlain. Visit the ferry website for pricing and scheduling information.
We have some wonderful summer packages at the inn including our Fly Fishing Package, the Summer Getaway Package and the New Filmmaker’s Festival Package.
Don’t let summer pass you by without a trip to Vermont!
