George, the owner, is the most valuable asset of this location. He is always helpful, calm and ressourceful. He doesn't count his time or his efforts to help in the best way he can. I know my boat is safe there, either at the mooring or in the yard. Over that, we love the small village with everything you need at hand. And, for sure, we love the price, too! It is hard to find such a combination on the lake.

Super service for Travelers lifts need to unload boat from trailer to trailer quick response 5 start

Marina Response:
Our 60 ton Marine Travelift was easily able to lift your 33' flybridge boat from dropdeck trailer and safely block in boatyard until Canadian shipper arrived. We shared photos of M/V Janelle as she was being loaded onto hydraulic trailer and prepped for her short trip across the U.S.- Canada border. Glad we were able to take away your concerns and were able to facilitate transport from NYC to Montreal. Look forward to welcoming you back to Lighthouse Marina and sharing what the Rouses Point waterfront has to offer!

Love this marina! Great location, cute little village. The owner, George, is reliable, fair, good vibes, provides excellent splash/haul-out services and is always making improvements on the property. Moorings are very secure – the lake didn't get a ton of big breezes this year but it's good peace of mind for when they do. Prices are GREAT. Having that new dog park just across the road at the community center & fields is super helpful. Can't wait for the BYOR (bring your own rum) tiki bar to open next year! :D

Marina Response:
Thrilled hearing that the upgraded amenities at Lighthouse Marina are being used and appreciated. Totally agree that the Village of Rouses Point is a truly special place and that the new and improved Village recreation facilities (dog park, pickleball courts. tennis courts, etc.) located across the street are the finest on Lake Champlain!

Lighthouse Point Marina rocks on Lake Champlain! George, the owner, is a total gem—always positive and super helpful. This summer, I had a boat hiccup, and George saved the day with a warm welcome and top-notch equipment for easy launches. The lake views are simply stunning. George's friendly vibes and great facilities made my stay unforgettable. I highly recommend this spot for a fantastic lakeside experience. Excited for my next visit! -Lorianne

Marina Response:
Lorianne- The crew appreciates the 5-star review for taking care of your precious "donuts" cargo. It was a challenge unloading your three boats from a trailer, that itself was loaded on a tractor trailer, but the LMLC crew rose to the occasion. Pleased that we were able to repair your trailer and safely load/strap your boats on their trip to Montreal. We look forward to seeing your "donuts" on Lake Champlain.

Capt. George was great! The docks are real close to a dog park and awesome exercise walk area. Great place for a layover just before entering Canada!

Marina Response:
Always great to meet up with kind and thoughtful boaters pursuing their dream of accomplishing the "Great Loop"! Glad that we were able to help solve all of your problems before you headed North of the Border to continue your amazing voyage. Hope to see you back on Lake Champlain or the shores of Georgia... safe travels!

Professionnal and friendly service. A rare combination these days. We had a late launch this year after doing some DIY repairs on the boat. Georges was very helpful and patient with us. Tks again for everything.

Je suis bien content d’avoir retrouver mon bateau intact après deux ans de pandémie ! J’ai bien hâte de revoir mon bateau enfin flotter au bout d’un mooring a toute épreuve L’été prochain ! Tranquilitée d’esprit assuré !

Marina Response:
Merci beaucoup! Very much appreciate your kind words and being entrusted with your treasured sailing machine on the dock and safely storing in our yard. Hoping your family remains safe and look forward to a wonderful sailing season next summer!

I started keeping my boat here this year – I'm so glad I stumbled upon this marina! The owner, George, is extremely knowledgeable, proactive, thorough, and welcoming, and the location is fantastic – just around the corner from the main drag, so it's quiet but not isolated and an easy 5-min walk along the shoreline to get a coffee, sandwich, or swing by the hardware store. The marina is getting rebuilt after a massive storm a few years back, and from the looks of it when the new docks are in and restaurant are done next year, this already-great spot is going to be 🔥

Marina Response:
Appreciate your kind words and pleased to hear that you are enjoying your new berth at Lighthouse Marina... a nice little marina, in a nice little port on gorgeous Lake Champlain.

It’s an amazing experience! I have been with the Lighthouse marina since September 2019. The marina is located 500 m from the customs (Lacolle). Easy to access and has all the necessary services. Always very good service. The owner is very polite. Very open for any personal inconvenience, especially during COVID time and border closures. Even though the price is already the cheapest on the lake, it suited me even more because of the pandemic. For two years that we couldn't see our boat, George took care of it. Thank you very much for being you!

Marina Response:
Oleg, pleased to hear that our efforts to safeguard your sailboat during the 2 year border lockdown exceeded your expectations. It's been a challenging two years running Lighthouse Marina with all the boats in storage, docks empty and the lake eerily quiet. We look forward to welcoming you, and all our Canadian boaters, back to Lake Champlain this spring!

I have been a year-long customer at this marina since 2016. I have a tricky full keel boat that is not easy to haul out and that will scare away many travel lift operators. George, the owner of the marina, is a very meticulous man and to my knowledge hauls every single vessel at Lighthouse. He will take the time and attention your boat needs and I take comfort knowing he is handling and caring for my sailboat. The installations at the marina are basic but are ideal for diy'ers and I will take friendly and helpful owner over pristine docks all day any day.

Marina Response:
It was great to see you in the Lighthouse boatyard last week and even more exciting to have you report that all is well with S/V Puffer (after two years in storage). Looking forward to welcoming your family back on the dock during the summer of 2022!

Just paid for my dry dock but I have nothing bad to say about this place. My boat has been there since 2012 and the owner, George, is very nice and knowledgeable. He will go out of his way to help his customers and others.

Marina Response:
Appreciate your continued support of our family operated marina. We look forward to seeing you back at work restoring your classic wooden Chris-Craft. Perhaps 2022 will be the year that she gets back in the water?

We are from Canada and bought a boat that was stored at lighthouse marina.. George made it possible for us to get our boat back to Canada. Would highly recommend this Marina for anyone looking for the extra care.. Thank you again!!!

Marina Response:
Dear Eric, thanks for leaving us such a wonderful review. We are thrilled that you loved your experience having the marina prepare your sailboat for transportation to Quebec. We put customer experience and satisfaction as our priority, and your review reaffirms the hard work we put in every day.
