Hammond house description
Welcome to The Oswegatchie River Cliff House, our latest and finest lodge. Our 1850s historic barn /converted lodge is designed for discriminating travelers who are looking for exceptionally unique and elegant vacation lodging, away from the crowds, and in a world class setting of natural beauty and solitude. We will be providing both here.
The 2200 sq. ft. lodge has been fashioned from an antique timber frame barn that was dismantled in Canada and transported to our 85-acre non-working farm here in St. Lawrence County. It has been rebuilt on the cliffs overlooking a remote section of the Oswegatchie River, one of the most pristine and clean rivers in upstate NY and the 1000 Islands region. Our firm, Antique Woods and Colonial Restorations, has been restoring historic barns and houses all over America for over 35 years now.
This is a really special place. Please check out our main web site for more information.
We have tried to incorporate all the best design features and wonderful aged woods into our lodge that we have encountered in our past years doing this kind of work. If you are a historic barn lover or fan of old timber frame construction you will find our new lodge to an absolute gem in a absolutely stunning private and natural setting. The antique floors and chestnut kitchen are being fabricated and installed as spring arrives in preparation for our upcoming opening.
The Barn/Lodge exposes all the original timber frame and rafters and has cathedral ceilings in the kitchen, dining and great room and two upstairs bedrooms. All these antique woods have been gleaned from other historic structures. The entire custom kitchen was designed and built by our craftsmen and made of aged wormy chestnut and finished with tongue oil.
The kitchen, dining room and great room are connected, and there is a loft and open stairs that all face a large wall of glass that overlooks the Oswegatchie River through the pine trees. This wonderfully beautiful and private area where the lodge is located is back off a small country road about ¼ mile in the forest and sits in a grove of tall pine, oak and ash trees.
The master bedroom and master bath are downstairs and two other bedrooms are upstairs with a second bath between them. The loft has a queen sofa sleeper. The spacious master bath has Jacuzzi tub/shower, chestnut vanity and sink, and washer and dryer. Other amenities include cable TV and wireless internet. We provide food for your first morning’s breakfast. The lodge is furnished with all antiques and some hand crafted reproductions made from our reclaimed barn woods. The kitchen is very large and equipped with all new appliances and quality pots and pans of all sorts.
From the Great Room, three sliding glass doors lead to a large 50-foot deck which provides a wonderful place to eat and relax under the tall pine trees. From here you have a spectacular elevated view of the Oswegathcie River as it meanders down through this remote and practically inaccessible section of the river. You will not see any other houses here. There is a series of stairs to multi-leveled decks that lead down to the river and the swimming, fishing and kayaking area. The waters here are very clear, the bottom is very sandy, and the river is loaded with small mouth bass, pike and other assorted fish. We provide kayaks and life vests and fishing rods. We have an outside gas grill and patio furniture on both decks and a picnic table, lawn chairs and a floating dock to swim or fish from down at the river.
