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 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, paddle board, 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.
