Heritage Stone home built in 1834 on a 100 acre horse farm with hiking/horse/ATV trails. The Elgin Farmhouse is located on the Canada/USA boarder near Chateaugay/Malone NY, is only 1 hour from Montreal and 10 minutes from Huntingdon, QC.
Enjoy the 70 acres of forest with endless trails and explore the horse barns and riding ring - or bring your horse!
The house has comfortable beds with charming rooms that have kept the character of the 1800's. The 2 main bathrooms are older but clean and have a certain charm to them. Although this is an older house, the kitchen has been tastefully upgraded while maintaining some characteristics of a period long-forgotten. The stone part of the house still has the original pine floors and mouldings and even the new kitchen floor, cupboards and mouldings come from the wood that was cut from this property.
Although you may be after a quiet getaway, the house has free WiFi, Netflix, Apple TV, DVD etc.........
There is a washer/dryer, dishwasher, BBQ and everything that you would expect in a home for an extended stay. The in-ground pool can be heated between May 20th and October 1st and there is a fence for the safety of all children. There is a massive sandbox with toys for the children as well as a closet full of toys, games and books.
