    AuSable River The East Branch of the AuSable River borders the property for 1/4 mile. A New York State Scenic River Corridor, the river flats, the trees along the river bank and the Jay Wilderness Range of mountains in the distance combine to make an inspiring backdrop.
    THE RIVER is a fine spot for picnics, walks and wading or floating down to the covered bridge (shallow rubber craft for most seasons). In the spring when there's lots of water serious kayakers make the run from Keene.
    AuSable River Walk. 1/4 mile. Meadows, river shoals, valley views. Find "Trailhead" at corner of Stonehouse Road and Route 9N. Cross Route 9N and walk South along Route 9N 600ft. to highway drainage ditch that cuts across the river flats. Turn into field and walk down 100ft. to end of ditch. Views of river shoals, plus ice jams, wild flowers, ducks and blue heron ( season dependent). Follow along river bank North to "Country Wedding Corner" and follow lot line back to starting point.

    Wainwright Mountain THE PINE FOREST on the hill behind the house makes for cool walks in Summer. Find the remains of three spring houses that served years ago the old schoolhouse on Stonehouse Road and the Stone House itself. Nice views of farm from open portions of the field up above the old apple tree in the midle of the field. Picnic spot.
    Stone House Big Rock Walk. 1/4 mile. Views of the AuSable Valley. Find Trailhead at old woods road in field 500ft. South of Old Barn (clearly visible from Stone House). Trail blazed white. Walk South 200ft. and turn right (following blazes) uphill West 600ft. and turn left (following blazes) 100ft. to Stone House "Big Rock," a large granite outcropping, several acres in size that marks the corner of the 42-acre Stone House Farm property. Scramble up ledge or walk downhill 50ft. for easier climb up. Views East of the AuSable River Valley. Return the same way or find property line (blazed red) at top of Big Rock (or near end of blazed trail) and walk North 800ft. along property line to site of old schoolhouse and brook at Stonehouse Road.
    Vegetable Garden A vegetable garden with mountain views.
    BIRDS of all kinds abound. Chickadees winter over by the lilac bush at the back door. Blue heron and ducks in the river Spring and Summer. Barn swallows nest under the back porch. Woodchucks are friendly pests.

    Property Setting:River, Fields, Jay Mountain Range MOUNTAIN AND MEADOWS VIEWS. Basset and Wainwright Mountains Closeup right at the back door. Jay Mountain and the extensive Jay Wilderness in the distance with river meadows on the property. A beaver swamp and Cottonwood grove on the property of the neighboring Stone House (1830).
