Superhosts are experienced, highly rated hosts who are committed to providing great stays for guests.
You are invited to visit our hobby farm and stay in an open, airy brand-new one-bedroom apartment inside an Amish-built barn. In our rural area, the call of songbirds or lowing of cows is the loudest thing you will hear. Our property is fully solar-powered, with our own array of 42 solar panels on the roof of the barn. We provide a fully stocked kitchen for your breakfast, including fresh eggs from our own chickens. We can also cook amazing dinners for your group- check out our food pics!

The space
Our brand-new apartment is located on the second floor of our Amish-built barn. The front door and wood porch lead into a large foyer where you can leave your shoes and coats. Walk upstairs and you've got an open floor plan with amazing views of the countryside from decks on both the front and rear of the barn. The very large barn-width rear deck is the place to be to watch the sunset on warm evenings, while you scan the meadow for white-tailed deer, turkeys, and coyote, while listening to the meadowlarks and savannah sparrows.
Inside the space, we offer one bedroom with a brand new Tuft and Needle queen-size bed, plus two more sleeping areas in shared space. The very large three-piece couch easily sleeps two adults, and the smaller futon can sleep a small adult or child. Our kitchen has a two-burner electric cooktop, toaster oven, microwave oven, coffee maker, and small fridge/ freezer for your pleasure, plus a small kitchen table as well as 4-person bar seating. We love the locally-cut white pine butcher block counter top! The open floor plan with exposed beams is pleasing to the eye, and our ceramic tile shower stall will make you linger. Most of the decorations in the apartment come from our travels in South and Central America, East Africa, and Indonesia.

Guest access
The upstairs guest space and foyer are entirely private. We are happy to give you a tour of our farm and animal areas. In the summer and fall, please feel free to wander through the large vegetable garden and enjoy the raspberries. We reserve use of the bottom floor of the Guest House for personal use, as this is where Fernando has his artisanal soap-making shop.

Other things to note
Our home is close to wonderful sites for adventure, in every season. In the winter, use your cross-country skis on the St. Lawrence University golf course right in the village of Canton, or go into the Adirondacks for a skiing or snowshoeing adventure. In the summer, there are miles of rivers and lakes to explore by canoe and kayak.
Please note there are animals on site, and you may hear chickens, goats, and cows during your stay, but never a train.

Location

Canton, New York, United States

We are located 4.8 miles south of the village of Canton, where St. Lawrence University and SUNY-Canton are located. The north boundary (the "blue line") of the Adirondack Park is 10 minutes south of our house in Colton, and opens to beautiful ice-age lakes, the Raquette, Grasse and Oswegatchie Rivers, and tourist destinations like Saranac Lake, Lake Placid, Tupper Lake's Wild Center, and Whiteface Mountain. The town of Potsdam, where Clarkson University and SUNY Potsdam are located, is a 15-minute drive to the east. Grab a coffee and pastry at the St. Lawrence University Brewer Bookstore cafe, and don't miss the Canton farmer's market on Tuesdays and Fridays in the village park in summer and fall.

I am a bird biologist and professor at St. Lawrence University. My husband Fernando and I own and live here with our seven-year old daughter Gigi. Fernando has been involved in all aspects of the construction on the new apartment you will stay in- he is a salsa music DJ, professional chef, artisanal soap maker, and handyman in his spare time. We have both spent lots of time outside of the US, as Fernando is originally from Ecuador, and I have worked in Latin America as a biologist and teacher for over two decades. We are multicultural and bilingual, and welcome people from everywhere, as we encourage human diversity here in the North Country. We welcome all religions, nationalities, genders, LGBTQ, and skin colors here!
