The Cabin Minouche is a rustic cabin perched high on a rock cliff overlooking Willsboro Bay. Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains of Vermont. l.

The space
The Minouche is located a few hundred feet from our home. It was carefully situated to provide the most privacy for our home as well as the cabin. We live on 108 acres of mountain land high above Lake Champlain.

Summer and Fall Fun on the Adirondack Coast and Beyond

Our home is located on the outskirts of Keeseville, NY, 13 miles south of Plattsburgh. Keeseville sits along the banks of the Ausable River, just west of Lake Champlain and within the Adirondack Park.

Rich with history
Established around 1812, the 19th-century industrial community of Keeseville is a national register district with 147 historic buildings and bridges. In addition, Keeseville is the birthplace of William Henry Jackson, an American painter, Civil War veteran, and explorer who achieved international fame for his photographs of the American frontier.

Explore chasms & railroads
Ausable Chasm, located just outside of Keeseville, is one of the oldest attractions in North America. Discover the Chasm through adventure courses and nature trails with scenic vistas and waterfalls and enjoy an easy two-mile “float through nature” on a 12-person river raft or an inner tube. The Chasm also offers many other year-round Adirondack Coast activities, including camping, biking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing.

While at Ausable Chasm, be sure to visit the nearby North Star Underground Railroad Museum, which reveals the hidden history of the Champlain Line of the Underground Railroad with poignant exhibits and compelling stories of fugitive slaves who passed through northeastern NY on their way to freedom in Canada.

Recreation of many kinds, in beautiful surroundings
Experience Keeseville’s unique shops and restaurants, as well as enjoy relaxing strolls along the village’s quaint and scenic roads with their striking views of the Ausable River and the Adirondack Mountains.

Ausable River, which runs through Keeseville and flows into Lake Champlain, offers great opportunities for Adirondack Coast fishing. Boaters and sailors can also take advantage of the Port Douglas Boat Launch, located on Route 16 in Keeseville.

Play a round of golf and dine at Harmony Golf Club & Community, located just 5 miles east of Keeseville. The club’s plush, green fairways are perched high on cliffs that overlook beautiful Lake Champlain.

For more outdoor, Adirondack Coast adventure, visit Wickham Marsh and Ausable Point State Park, located just east of Ausable Chasm. There, you can explore the extraordinary marsh habitat by foot or canoe, experience some of the finest bird watching in New York State and view a rare cedar plantation and an old homestead site.


The Adirondack region is famous for its mountains. There's a hike for everyone's tastes, be it an easy afternoon hike up Rattlesnake Mountain or a more challenging trek up one of the High Peaks.

The Adirondack Coast offers some of the finest dining experiences. There are many nearby restaurants that specialize in local foods, wines and craft beers. Many are tucked away on the shoreline of Lake Champlain offering spectacular views.
