Colton house description

Ultimate privacy in this new, luxurious 2,800 sq' log home on 16 acres of wilderness waterfront on a section of Raquette River which has been dammed to create a pristine lake excellent for swimming or fishing for pike, bass, walleye. Includes pontoon boat w/ Mercury motor, free boat gas, canoe, 2 kayaks, dock, 8-person, jetted, lit hot tub at the water's edge. Regulation-size, lit sand volleyball court, private pond, bon-fire pit, Adirondack chairs and lounge chairs. Snowshoes provided in winter, snowmobile trails nearby. Fully equipped kitchen w/ new (2010) refrig and new ceramic top stove , dining room, living room w/ 2-story cathedral ceiling, leather furniture, stone fireplace (wood provided). Upstairs den/TV room. Just added--a 2 car garage has just been renovated, pine-paneled, and made into a game building with bar size pool table, shuffleboard table, ping pong table, electronic soft tip dart game--a great addition to an already fabulous recreational paradise! Sleeps 17, 1 king, 3 queens, 3 doubles, 1 single, 1 futon, 2 full baths, washer/dryer; 4 mi. to Higley Flow State Park; 25 min. to SLU & Clarkson U; 1 hour to ski mountains.


Two story grand room with a cathedral ceiling, leather sofas, an oriental rug, and a stone fireplace, satellite TV and DVD. The dining room has a solid cherry hand-made table which seats 12. The fully-equipped kitchen includes modern appliances, a Kitchen-Aide mixer, and ample place settings for large groups. Telephone w/ free unlimited local and long-distance service.
Two downstairs bedrooms share a bathroom with a washer and dryer. The 2nd floor has a second bath, shared by one bedroom that has 1 queen and another bedroom that has a queen and a single bed. The 3rd floor has a loft with 3 double beds, skylights. Also there is an attached porch with waterfront and sunset views. There is a large fire pit surrounded by new Adirondack chairs and lounge chairs. It's just four miles to Higley Flow State Park -- with its acres of woods, trails, and swimming at a sandy beach. It's 25 minutes to St. Lawrence University, Clarkson College, Sunny Canton, and Sunny Potsdam; and, as such, the Raquette River Lodge would be an excellent place for visiting families or college conferences.

It's just one hour to Lake Placid, site of two winter Olympics, and home of Whiteface Mountain ski slopes. And it's just 1.5 hours to Ottawa, Canada's capital -- where one can skate on the canals or visit Parliament buildings, museums, and cultural events.

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About: Donna and John Clark began their lodging business in 1994 with one room in their home which they converted into a bed and breakfast room. Now, almost 20 years later, along with some of their grown 7 children and 16 grandchildren, they own and manage 12 bed and breakfast rooms and 4 waterfront vacation rental homes. It is a family business that has brought joy to their family as well as to the hundreds of vacationers who have stayed with them.

              Why Colton:
              The privacy of this property is unmatched with its surrounding 16 acres of waterfront grounds; large groups are free to enjoy their vacation without fear of disturbing neighbors. It is a recreational paradise with pontoon boat, unlimited boat gas, kayaks, waterfront hot tub, lit volleyball court, adjacent game building with pool, ping pong, shuffleboard, etc. NEW: we have ordered for the living room a new leather sleeper sofa which opens up into an additional queen bed—to be delivered in January, 2015. With the sleeper sofa the home will sleep 19.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Built and equipped for large groups. Ultimate privacy. Many facets of recreation on grounds and nearby. Close proximity (1/2 hour or less) to St. Lawrence University, Clarkson University, and 2 SUNY schools make it a resource for conferences, visiting sports teams parents, etc.
