The Elliott House was built in 1864 and sits on 5 acres of well-manicured lawn, flower beds and towering maple trees, yet only minutes away from the local universities. The house is surrounded by beautiful meadows and is only 4 miles away from the beautiful St. Lawrence River, that borders the U.S and Canada. All bedrooms are generously equipped with luxurious bedding with access to wireless high-speed internet and they all come standard with a healthy dose of historical charm, not to mention the ample views of wildlife in the fields.
Although the Elliott House is 154 years old, it has been greatly updated to maximize your comfort while at the same time preserving a lot of the history and charms that will make you want to return again and again, like many of our past guests. It has been said to me that our pictures posted don't do us justice. The house has central air that cools the entire house..The Elliott House has a whole home filtration system so you can drink the water from the well and wash your clothes without worrying of staining them from mineral content found in some country homes. We also have bottled water delivered for your comfort.
The Elliott House is our vacation home and you will be the only people occupying it.
There may be things in the cupboards and fridge, for experienced renters, might find odd, such as brownie mix etc, but feel free to use what is there. The Elliott House is great for families that like to make meals and spend time with their family
When you open the door and see the 8 ft ceilings and beautiful hardwood floors that sweep pass the 7 ft double doors into the living room you know you are going to have a nice stay. The living room has plenty of sitting area where you can congregate and watch TV or take in family time. The kitchen has all the utensils to cook a family dinner and a large dining room table where a good dinner and family can visit in comfort.The patio at the rear of the house is a great place to start and end your day while at the same time view the deer and turkeys that WILL show up during your stay. I love the mature Maples and the shade they make.
Plan your perfect day trip to Lake Placid, Ottawa, or Montreal is only a short drive away. The Universities, Clarkson, St.Lawrence, SUNY Canton and SUNY Potsdam are only a stones throw away from the Elliott House.
One thing my wife and I like to do is take a 30 mile drive to Heuvelton, which is an Amish community and enjoy the day shopping their roadside stands. You will find eggs, jams, vegetables, soaps, bread of all kinds, as well as various crafts. If you are looking for something custom made such as cabinets and furniture, they will take your order. We love Heuvelton and am sure you will too.
We truly want you to enjoy your stay and have a great experience visiting northern N.Y. We love our home and are sure you will too.
The home was once owned by Jim and Jesse Elliott and I was raised on the Farm across the road. Jim was a surveyor for the Gas company and Jesse was a housewife raising two girls. I always remembered how Jesse labored over her flower beds and had one of the best manicured yards in the North Country. No matter the season, you could always find a flower bed in full bloom...I always enjoyed the Lilac bushes.Get the full listing »
