24 East Main


Time Flies…

It’s hard to believe that 24 East Main opened eight years ago (August 2008). A home renovation that took four years to complete has now hosted thousands of guests and seen Juniors in high school choose one of the four local colleges, and then graduate! We have been thrilled to be the subject of local news on a few occasions, first when we opened in an article in the Watertown Daily Times, and some fun history on 24 East Main from when we hosted the EJ Noble Guild’s House Tour in 2010. That article isĀ here.

Winter in the North Country

Living in the North Country requires you to embrace winter – it’s a long season! There is nothing quite like the sun shining on a field of snow, the twinkle of the ice coated branches or the feeling you get on a perfect flurry day that makes you feel like you are living in a snow globe! We are also very fortunate to have extensive winter adventure, literally outside the back door. The St. Lawrence University golf course is a great spot for cross-country skiing (Charles went over 100 times in 2014-2015), with groomed tracks on occasion. Not far away there are snowshoe adventures to waterfalls, and ice skating at the local pavilion.

A Love for Cooking

One of the best parts about running a B&B is the cooking and baking! It’s so much fun to get creative in the kitchen. Some think that breakfast is a limited culinary opportunity, however, we indulge in the opportunity to prepare and serve all home cooked, fresh from recipe specialties; A multi-step pancake recipe, an over-night waffle batter, coffee cakes with local fruit, and fresh farm eggs in many styles all make what we do enjoyable – and a real treat for our guests. Charles and Brooke were both raised in families with professional (and self-proclaimed) chefs, which certainly had an influence on their handy work in the kitchen at 24 East Main.
