Property description

This gorgeous six bedroom cottage is in Westminster Park on Wellesley Island in the Thousand Islands. As one of the larger islands, Wellesley Island is accessible by car.

The house is on one acre, has six bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two large living rooms and an enormous (about 50 feet long) beautiful screened-in porch, which also wraps around the side of the house. The house overlooks the water and is across from Boldt Castle (see photo). There is a small beach in front of the house, a boat house, and dock. The property is in a bay and therefore is great for swimming, fishing, and boating. Alexandria Bay is on the other side of Boldt Castle and an easy trip (five to ten minutes by boat or 15-20 minutes by car).

The kitchen and one bathroom have been significantly upgraded recently. The entire house has also been rewired for safety and convenience.

The house has six bedrooms: two of the bedrooms have queen beds (both also have very small daybeds in them that could accommodate a child); three bedrooms have two single beds in them; and one bedroom has three single beds. Around the corner on the 50-foot long porch is another double bed. All beds are new and very comfortable.

The house is also about one mile from the TI Country Club, a beautiful club with 36 holes of great golf, a restaurant, a pool, tennis courts and a reputation for 1000 Islands hospitality that goes back over a hundred years.
