Property description

Enjoy our unique property with two cottages(one two bedroom cottage - Holly Ship, and a one bedroom cottage - Bunko). It is perfect for family getaways, couples retreats or any other type of vacation to enjoy the three bedrooms (total between the two cottages) and the spectacular location!

Enjoy both the outstanding view of the spectacular ships of the St. Lawrence River (don't worry, they are quiet!) as well as the plentitude of activities in the Thousand Island Region.

This property is situated on the 'St. Lawrence Narrows' so you can share the water with the great freighters! Off to the left of the cottages is a great swimming area protected by small islands and with a beautiful babbling brook.

In just 5 minutes (by boat or car) you can enjoy Alexandria Bay and one of the many events (1000 Islands Poker Run, Kidrific Weekend, Pirate Weekend, Concerts in the Park...) or take in the scenery of Wellesley Island known for its magnificent nature trails and historic Thousand Island Park.

Bring your boat, dockage on site! It does not get easier than this!

There are 3 immaculate Golf Courses very near this property, one of which is the Thousand Islands Golf Club.

Wake up to a beautiful view of the sun rising over the St. Lawrence and make sure you bring your camera because you will not believe the proximity of the shipping channel. You are sure to be impressed! A perfect vacation destination for you, your family & your friends.

Recent Renovation- new double bed and pine flooring in Bunko, bedroom renovation and new flooring in Holly Ship Cottage.

Ample outdoor space with new 20'x20' Deck giving the compound three different deck spaces to enjoy the view of the incredible waterway.

Crystal Clear water, two dock spaces to accommodate you boat. Great kayaking, fishing!

Car: Recommended

Boat Everywhere. Two dock spaces provide easy docking at Holy Ship. Once on site, your car will no longer be necessary.... Boat to the Price Chopper, ABay, Clayton, potters Beach, Gannanoque, Kingston, Brockville, Rockport....

You can even take your boat to the Thousand Island Country club! Whether just boating out to Devils oven for some cliff jumping, or to Brockville Canada for fish and chips, the point is you can do it all by boat while taking in the incredible beauty of the famous Thousand Island water ways. Docking is free everywhere, and restaurants and souvenirs are very reasonably priced. Come and enjoy the laid back attitude and easy living of the St. Lawrence River.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We hope you enjoy our cottage as much as we do! We love getting way from it all and using only our boat for the time that we spend at Holy Ship. It never gets old to cross over that bridge in anticipation of spending more memorable moments with our kids, and family friends. We love that the water is always refreshing and clear, and that there are no black flies and very few bugs in general on the river due to the flowing water. A true hidden gem, we feel incredibly fortunate to spend time with great family, friends, and neighbors when we are at the cottages!

Why the Owner Chose Wellesley Island:
We love the peacefulness of the water and the privacy of our location with the benefit of great destinations (Clayton or Alex Bay) by boat! The two cottages are also great to spread out a bit on your vacation. The location is perfect, and the view of the shipping channel is priceless.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Enjoy fishing off the dock, watching the Herons fly by, kayak in the peaceful creek or just sit on the dock and enjoy the sun (and when the sun goes down, fire up the wood burning hot tub!)
