Westport Yacht Club:
Exclusive Lake Champlain Dining with Panoramic Views
This is an unprecedented opportunity to own the historic Westport Yacht Club and restaurant. Located in charming Westport, New York, overlooking the Green Mountains and the Adirondacks, this lakeside landmark was operated for a quarter century as Le Bistro du Lac by Chef Bernard Perillat and his wife Rosemarie. Devoted patrons arrived by water, air, and land season-after-season from New York, Vermont, Canada, and beyond to savor authentic French cuisine in the most breathtaking waterfront dining atmosphere on Lake Champlain.
Every vantage is stunning and every sense is spoiled. Sailboats drift at anchor, backlit with alpenglow. Technicolor sunsets silhouette the Adirondacks’ picturesque High Peaks. Great Blue Herons glide gracefully onto the sandy beach. Independence Day fireworks paint the dome above. Jazz wafts warm-winded from Ballard Park, and loons’ laughter mingles with the chime of halyards and the lap of waves.
The Westport Yacht Club building of 5170 square feet, on 1.25 acres, offers two stories of professionally designed, fully finished, commercial space. The entrance level is comprised of a nautically inspired bar and dining room with hardwood floor and fireplace, full commercial kitchen, restrooms, and service area. The second story includes a carpeted banquet room with cathedral ceiling, wall-to-wall lakeside windows, fireplace, hardwood dance floor, bar, restrooms, secondary commercial kitchen, large auxiliary/storage room, wine closet, and office. The exterior offers generous patios and decking for open air and covered dining. Additional amenities include exterior walk-in refrigeration, 240 feet of waterfront, extensive concrete docking, a private sandy beach, and a large parking lot. In addition to dockside mooring, a deep-water anchorage accommodates sailboats and powerboats of all sizes, and the beach comfortably accommodates up to three sea planes.
The Westport Yacht Club location boasts convenient access to a neighboring championship 18-hole golf course; a full-service marina; a public boat launch; and a public park and waterfront with gardens, greens, bandstand for theatrical and musical performances (home of world-class jazz series, Soundwaves). Additional highlights nearby include AEA professional Depot Theatre; dozens of celebrated organic farms; the Adirondack Northway; the Westport Amtrak station; Camp Dudley, the oldest continually running boys camp in the United States; the Meadowmount School of Music, and the Basin Harbor Club, a short boat ride away in Vergennes, Vermont.
The restaurant is near the Essex Ferry and Crown Point Bridge to VT, is 32 miles west of the Burlington International Airport, 41 miles south the city of Plattsburgh, 103 miles south of Montreal, 127 miles north of Albany, 222 miles from Boston, and 276 miles north of New York City.
Come see why tourists and residents have been drawn to this historic community since the early 19th century, when the legendary mountain spring water was bottled and exported, when the town pier was a popular passenger steamboat destination, and when waterfront inns and resorts, and healing springs, were coveted getaways for well healed urbanites. Discover why the iconic Adirondack Chair, invented in Westport in 1903, could only have been imagined into existence in this idyllic oasis where the Adirondacks meet Lake Champlain.
This mortgage calculator can be used to figure out monthly payments of a home mortgage loan, based on the home's sale price, the term of the loan desired, buyer's down payment percentage, and the loan's interest rate. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.
