Where's Rosslyn, you ask? Are you averse to a verse?
Up in the Adirondacks at the foot of the foothills, where Champlain's sweet waters refresh, render respite, and sooth worldweary souls, a sanctuary sings welcoming melodies.
Still uncertain where’s Rosslyn? This 2-century old homestead is perched on the Adirondack shore of Lake Champlain in Essex, New York. Unlike the Adirondack High Peaks region, the Adirondack Coast (which comprises much of Champlain’s western shoreline) exhibits picturesque colonial architecture unlike the more recent Adirondack rustic camps located further inland. Historic Essex boasts one of the most intact, best preserved collections of early 19th century United States architectural heritage. Serving as a gateway community since the late 1700s, Essex remains an important crossroads today. The Essex-Charlotte ferry connects New York State with Vermont, while nearby NYS Route 87 and Amtrack trains connect Montreal, Albany and New York City. Want to discover more about where’s Rosslyn?
