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!
