Colton house description

Memories in the making! Welcome to the 'Best Kept Secret' in Northern NY where you are a short distance from the spectacular Adirondacks, the fascinating Thousand Islands and above all in the quiet serene beauty of life in the slow lane.

This beautiful yet quaint home has all of the amenities of your everyday life in a setting which takes you back to an easy, carefree way. Begin your day kayaking/boating on the lake, prepare a delicious meal in the accommodating kitchen, drop a rod off the dock and watch the fish come, take a short drive to play 9 holes and then end your day relaxing in the hot tub enjoying the stunning sunset followed by a marshmallow roast in the firepit at the river's edge. To do all of the above, you need only bring your personal items!

The 'North Country' as the locals call it is unique for all that it has to offer. With 4 major colleges within 20 miles, it offers an experience which includes the arts, college sports (think hockey,) diverse cuisine and ample shopping opportunities, yet much of the area remains unchanged. A short drive offers views of century old farms, enormous maple trees, an occasional horse and buggy and picturesque scenery in all 4 seasons.

Our home is situated on a portion of the Raquette River that is known as the 'Norwood Lake' and is a short drive to Colton and the foothills of the Adirondacks. The Norwood Lake is quiet, yet known for watersports, fishing and swimming (there is a beautiful, sandy public beach just across the lake) as well as your own beach out back. The Norwood Lake also hosts area rowing teams and an annual snowmobile race in the water (you have to see to believe) in the summer months. There in winter? Try ice fishing, or enjoying your own Winter Wonderland out back allowing the ample lights from the deck to light up your playing field! The mighty St. Lawrence River is also a short drive. Catch a huge one for dinner, and then watch an oceanliner go through the renowned St. Lawrence Seaway.

The lovely home features comfortable, relaxing decor and furniture. Every possible item you could need for eating/sleeping/relaxing is included. Do you love flowers/landscaping? Enjoy the many perennials situated on the property or if you are there in the right season, pick some apples, a fresh bouquet of lilacs or wild blackberries.

Whether you choose to enjoy all that the area has to offer or to simply stay at the home throughout your vacation relaxing, you may find yourself wanting to enjoy the 'best kept secret' year after year! Welcome to the 'North Country!'

                              I am a native 'North Country' girl. Although my life has taken me elsewhere, I cannot nor do I ever want to forget how beautiful and comforting life can be truly be when you step back. This home allows me to do just that...enjoy things that really are important. I am excited to share that with travelers from all over.
