Lake Champlain Pools, Spas & Stoves is celebrating 50 years in business

Lake Champlain Pools, Spas & Stoves is proud to announce 2024 marks the start of its 50th year as a locally owned family business.

“In 1976. I was looking for a business opportunity in Plattsburgh. I had some experience in pool installation. having built pools in New Jersey and Nevada.” said George Hubbell, President, “An opportunity came along to buy a local pool company, I took the plunge, no pun intended, and never looked back.”

Lake Champlain Pools was created in 1974 by Herb Carpenter, then Chief of Police for the City of Plattsburgh.  Paul Green, of Don G Orchards in Peru, NY and his brother-in-law purchased it in 1975 and in 1976 it was sold to George Hubbell. 

According to Kay Hubbell, Vice President, “It didn’t take long to realize that we had multiple additional product lines to explore. We started selling spas in 1981, wood stoves in 2009 and saunas in 2000.”

Kay continued “In 2017, our daughters, Erinn and Christine joined our business, and we couldn’t be happier to keep the company in the family and help a new generation of happy pool, stove, hot tubs and sauna customers find the right product or offer the best service for their pursuit of wellness.”

“It has been a learning experience, and a bit of a rollercoaster ride, but it has also been a lot of fun.” said Erinn Hubbell, “It’s a great feeling when someone who purchased a pool or spa comes back to buy a wood stove, sauna or swim spa. We are proud to call the North Country home”.

Christine Hubbell said, “One of the keys to our success over the years, besides of course our wonderful customers is our staff. We have seven people who have been with us for over twenty years, three for over ten. We wouldn’t be where we are without them.”

Throughout 2024 Lake Champlain Pools, Spas & Stoves will be holding a wide variety of monthly discounts, promotions, and giveaways.
