THINGS TO DO IN THE AREA:
The closest most popular activities are the fishing and water sports attractions due to the Salmon River, the Reservoir, and the Falls. State Park beaches on Lake Ontario are nearby, and there are golf courses over there too. A little further away to the northeast, in our Tug Hill region, there is a popular wine tasting vineyard location in Lowville. Henderson Harbor and Sackets Harbor to the northwest on Lake Ontario are nice villages to visit. Watertown has a shopping mall, and whitewater rafting on the Black River. The Thousand Islands region has a great boat tour on the St. Lawrence River that departs from Alexandria Bay. If you are interested in a quick trip to Canada, Kingston, Ontario, is only a 1.75 hour drive away. About 50 minutes to the south of us, in Syracuse, is Destiny USA, a large shopping and entertainment complex on the shore of Onondaga Lake.
Our own local country roads are great for biking/running/walking and there are miles of woods trails on our property for motorized toys or just your power. We have a 4-acre pond stocked for catch-and-release fishing. There are lively large-mouth bass near the top and sleepy channel catfish near the bottom. We have a swimming/canoeing/kayaking dock too.
