McGregor Bay house description

A stay at our home, we call 'One In a Thousand' will undoubtably be a unique and memorable vacation. Accessible only by boat our home is positioned on ten acres of Carleton Island in the St. Lawrence river, 1 1/2 Miles from the mainland Cape Vincent, NY. One in a Thousand boasts breathtaking views of both Canada and The United States. Large glass doors throughout the home allow you to enjoy panoramic views from nearly every room. No cars or roads exist on the island which has been left in its natural state, making it a great place to unplug and enjoy life. A three mile path around the circumference of the island offers a great way to explore on foot or bike. Carleton is bustling with history and wildlife to discover including nesting bald eagles, great blue heron, deer, fox, mink and much more. Some of the areas best fishing can also be found right off the end of the dock! The solid wooden dock provides a safe and protected place to park your boat or swim in the clear water. If you don't have a boat we can also help arrange a water taxi through a local marina. There's no more relaxing way to end a day than watching a ship pass by while gazing out at the stunning river sunset.
