What a lovely B&B! We discovered this wonderful little gem on a mid-week visit to St. Lawrence University. Arriving rather late, Charles greeted us with a smile and showed us to our room. Spacious, clean, quite comfortable and very quiet. We woke up the next morning to the smell of bacon (gotta love it) and a fully home-cooked breakfast to order. Coffee was great, too. We will absolutely be back to 24 East Main St B&B on our next trip to Canton. Highest marks!!
This is a wonderful old home that has been restored to its natural beauty. You can tell that this was a project of love for Charles Rouse and his wife. Each room is beautifully decorated. I stayed in the Rouse Room and have booked the Fleur De Lis for my next visit.
Our family enjoyed the cool ambiance of living under the sloped ceilings of our little hideaway at the top of the stairs. Our first look at the bathroom revealed the oversized Jacuzzi tub but we decided to skip the jets when we found the shower...INSIDE THE SAUNA. Locating the shower inside a sauna room was definitely a first for us but so so nice. Our teenage Harry Potter fan also loved her private bedroom and the view of the passing trains tucked away under a gabled dormer. We highly recommend 24 East Main if you are in town to visit Saint Lawrence University. The entire campus is an easy walk from the house. You'll enjoy your stay and if Charles is cooking breakfast make sure you go with the omelette.
This was my first time staying at 24 East Main although I know the area well as a SLU alum. I plan to be back EVERY time I'm in the North Country! I stayed in the "Studio Suite," which is actually on the other side of the driveway in a different building. It was fantastic...super clean, comfortable bedding (hadn't slept that well in weeks), and a super-quiet room. There are train tracks nearby and I didn't hear them once I was inside the room. Brooke, Charles, their young kids (and dog) make for a tremendous visit experience! Their staff also cooked a delicious breakfast! If it's available, I highly recommend staying here over any of the hotels in the area. I can't recommend 24 East Main Street enough!
I have heard good an bad about B&B's in general and wanted to try one for myself. This was a wonderful experience.Our room was as described, clean and comfortable. It is right by the train tracks but I did not hear any trains at night and the building did not shake. I did enjoy watching a very long train one morning though but I am one who likes trains, riding on them and watching them go by. The breakfast was delicious. It changes from day to day and we enjoyed it all 3 days of our stay.
