Champlain Valley

New York's Champlain Valley features quaint waterfront towns and pastoral inland communities, each offering something for locals and tourists alike.

Nestled between the Adirondacks and the shores of Lake Champlain, the city of Plattsburgh has a beautiful downtown area with restaurants and shops, a burgeoning arts scene, fishing areas, beaches, boat launches, recreational trails, an international airport, and so much more. The atmosphere in Plattsburgh is contagious, and the local residents are very friendly and active in their community.

Plattsburgh gained prominence as a major US hub for the fur trade with Montreal, located just over an hour to the north. While the fur trade is no longer prevalent, beautiful historic buildings remain from that time period. Brinkerhoff Street is particularly popular featuring unique architecture from the late 19th and early 20th century. Another popular area of Plattsburgh is Riverwalk Park and the Heritage Trail which follows through the city along the Saranac River passing by museums, art galleries, and local boutiques.

Surrounding the "lake city" are rural communities, each with their own distinct personality. While Plattsburgh is the business hub of the region, the surrounding communities are well known for their farms and pastoral landscapes, each with amazing views of the mountains, valleys and bodies of water nearby.

The people who live here describe the area as being close to everything: just 5 hours from New York City, an hour from Montreal to the north, Burlington, Vermont to the east and Lake Placid to the west, and just over 2 hours to the state capital of Albany, you are just short drive for a weekend getaway.

The city of Plattsburgh and surrounding areas offer a wide range of real estate for people of all ages and price ranges.
