MAJESTIC RIVERLEE ESTATE

Cornwall House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

A charming tree-lined entrance greets you as you enter the Adams Manor from County Road #2. The Adams family owned the residence for over 100 years. The majestic five-bedroom stone home was built in the early 1800's. It is situated on three acres of land and has a beautiful panoramic waterfront view. From the home you can observe the big ships just south of the off-shore island and from the shoreline you have a terrific view of the Ogdensburg/Prescott International bridge to the west.

The stately residence has a lovely eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, huge living room and two updated full bathrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs. The home is in good condition. Your guests will be impressed with the calibre of the accommodation and of course, the view.

Hardwood/softwood floors are throughout most of the home, except of course the bathrooms and kitchen! Like the four-bedroom home, a washing machine and dryer is also available on site. One canoe, a paddleboat and kayak are included in the rental fee. A second canoe and access to the double garage is available upon request.

In among the shoreline there is a smooth rock surface allowing you to get in and swim or boat. There is also a sand box area for children to play. The gentle current to the west and slightly greater current to the east keeps the shoreline free of weeds. Lots of great places allow the river's edge or islands off shore to visit and view wildlife. You will feel like you are a pioneer back in the 1700's! FYI: Years ago, the Adams family used to bring their cows to the closest large island each spring by swimming them across the shallow channel behind a small power boat. Therefore the nickname of the main island, Cow Island!

The Old Stone Home is located in a picturesque shallow bay, with very little boat traffic as the bay ends several hundred yards past the home. The shipping channel is two miles/three kilometres away from both homes, so there is no chance of someone being swamped in a canoe by the waves of a 1000 foot freighter. Bring your fishing rod, the fishing ranges from good to great!

A FUN FAMILY GATHERING

  • 4 of 5
We chose Riverlee to hold a family-only birthday celebration for my mother-in-law this May and a great time was had by all. All generations showed up for a really enjoyable day of spending time together, a dinner feast with dancing, then a big sleep-over. The kids had a blast because of the proximity to the river, small playground, trampoline (that the owners generously allowed them to use), big outdoor patio and grass field big enough for frisbee or soccer. Adults enjoyed the views, kayaking on the river, and lounging on the patio. The bright and roomy kitchen with ample casserole dishes and pots allowed us each to make our 'best dish' contributions, while other family members sat at the big kitchen table to chat (or use their digital devices...wifi is available). The gas BBQ was appreciated by the 'I only do meat over fire' crowd. We were able to accommodate all 18 in the spacious dining room. The living room was converted into a dance-floor after dinner (with the help of our computer speakers). After the party, 12 of us stayed comfortably overnight... The owners of the property were gracious hosts, checking to make sure we had all we needed. They also recommended a visit to the nearby fort (Wellington) which we did on the way out of town. Another highlight of the trip! The house is very spacious and bright, a great place for a weekend away, especially if you want to bring a crowd!

LOVELY HOME, WONDERFUL HOSTS.

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home for a week the summer of 2010 and had a wonderful time. The hosts were helpful and very welcoming. The house is very clean, well cared for and comfortable. The kitchen was large, well-equipped and tended to be the hang-out spot. The side porch was a fantastic place to read my book in the morning with some coffee. The kids enjoyed playing in the water and paddling in the kayaks. It was in good proximity for visits to Ottawa and sights closer to the area. I would have no reservations recommending this place to families looking to visit the area.
