1850s Farmhouse on 72 acres. Relax on the back porch and soak in the view of the wetlands and Adirondack peaks beyond. A pair of Northern harriers (hawks) nest on our land as do many other birds.
Two bedrooms upstairs with living room, dining room, kitchen, and bathroom downstairs. Bathroom has clawfoot tub/shower and living room has wood burning stove. House is 5 minutes from downtown Essex with ferry to Vermont, restaurants, shops, and park with boat slip and small beach.
There are only two beds in the house but you are welcome to bring an air mattress. You can put an air mattress in either of the bedrooms upstairs or in the dining room downstairs.
Feel free to explore the property, though all auxiliary buildings, especially barns are off limits. In addition please be aware if walking the property that there is a natural very small pond just past one of the barns. We have a Keep Out sign in front to warn you of its existence. The property goes straight back to the railroad and to the north and south there are hedgerows to distinguish the end of our property-72 acres.
Interaction with guests
I'll be accessible by email or phone. I also have someone local, who can assist you, if needed.
Other things to note
Lots of great hiking nearby. Look up Champlain Area Trails for a comprehensive trail map of the immediate area. Coon Mountain is great with kids and you get a view overlooking the lake at the top.
