Thousand Island Park cottage description

2015 IN-SEASON WEEKS: $1,800/WEEK; LABOR DAY WEEK offers 10 days at the 7 day rate; OFF-SEASON WEEKS IN JUNE and SEPT. ARE $1,200 PER WEEK.CALL 202-360-2257 FOR MORE INFORMATION.

Enjoy this four bedroom, two bath cottage with two fabulous porches (upper and wrap-around), large dining and living rooms, modern kitchen, and large yard for children to play.

Then step back in time and enjoy a summer vacation in Thousand Island Park, an old Victorian community where children roam free, parents stroll to the old-fashioned ice cream parlor for an after-dinner treat, and aging boomers relax and rock on porches.

Located at the western end of Wellesley Island where the 1000 Islands International Bridge connects the United States with Canada, Thousand Islands Park is a short drive from the bustling modern cities of Kingston or Ottawa, Canada, or the nightclubs and tourist attractions of Alexandria Bay and Clayton, New York.

This charming Victorian, close to the Tabernacle, Ice Cream Parlor, Hotel, Playground, and Tennis and Basketball Courts, features four large bedrooms (a double bed with full bath on lst floor; a double bed between two doors to upper porch on 2nd floor; a double bed and twin bed bunk in huge bedroom 2nd floor; and lovely room with one single bed on 2nd floor) two full baths, one on first floor; one on second. Eat around a large dining room table, park kids at an old-fashioned table in the kitchen, or enjoy the large side yard with grill and picnic table.

          Thousand Island Park is the gateway to Canada. Ottawa and its historic buildings and famous art museum is only 1.5 hours away; Toronto about 3 hours, and Montreal about 2.5 hours. Fabulous Canadian recreation areas just a short drive.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1994

          About the owner: Al and Margaret Crenshaw vacationing in hot Florence and eager to return to their wonderful house on the cool, St. Lawrence River.

          Why the Owner Chose Thousand Island Park:
          We live in Washington, DC, where it gets VERY hot in the summer. We wanted a vacation home where the summers are cool, but still warm enough for swimming and boating. Al doesn't like the beach with all the sand and crowds, so finding The River seemed like a miracle. Thousand Island Park is a community where we've made great friends and have enjoyed all the Park's activities. Friends ask, 'Why do you drive so far and what do you do up there?' We answer, 'It's paradise.'

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          Sitting on the upper porch and reading is Al's favorite place in the world. Margaret's is rocking on the front porch with neighbors and friends, just sharing, chatting, and enjoying life. Gentle rain on warm evenings with all the doors open and the breeze blowing through the cottage is the best way to fall asleep, anywhere.
