In the country, yet close to Canton and Potsdam
Moore’s Hill is midway between Potsdam and Canton, six miles from each village. We are on a county road two miles north of Route 11, easy to access yet in the country.
So much more than just a room
The farm atop Moore’s Hill was established in 1832. In the most recent expansion and renovation, we have taken the front part of the house and established it as a separate area for you to enjoy as our guests. While you are here, you will be our only guests. Not only the sleeping area you choose, but the parlor, dining room, and a sweeping forty-foot wraparound porch, will be yours to enjoy with privacy.
Sunrise and sunset views abound, from the bedrooms, from the parlor and dining area, and from the porches. You will find a chart of sunrise and sunset times in your room, as many of our guests want to catch the moment of the day’s start and end.
A hearty breakfast
A typical breakfast menu includes eggs (choice of scrambled, fried, or omelet), ham, applesauce, toast served with Moore’s Hill raspberry jam, coffee, tea, or cocoa, and juice. Hot or cold cereal and yogurt are also offered.
Enjoy the views, or stretch the legs
You can take a walk down the country road or hike on our 55 acres with mowed paths through the fields and into the woods. When the snow has settled in, you can give snowshoeing a try. For bird lovers, bobolinks and meadowlarks nest in the meadow, swallows swoop over the fields, and bluebirds have settled into a house you can watch from the porch.
To meet your needs
Amenities include satellite HDTV, high-speed WiFi, private bath with large shower, ample parking, air-conditioning, and a mini-fridge.
