The Thousand Islands Region: The Thousand Islands region is a scenic part of New York State’s Seaway Trail. Come experience some of the Empire State’s natural, recreational, historic, and cultural resources. Nearby Alexandria Bay offers restaurants, gift & antique shops, island tours, Boldt Castle & Singer Castle trips, boat & skidoo rental, musical & cultural events, dinner cruises, airplane, hot air balloon & helicopter rides over the Islands, horseback riding, go-carts, golf, miniature golf, a marine museum, a physical fitness center, a hospital, tennis courts, duty-free shops at the Canadian border. From Alexandria Bay you can cross a bridge to Canada. Sailing lessons on nearby Wellesley Island. Enjoy a visit to the Frederic Remington Art Museum in nearby Ogdensburg. Morristown, known as the “Gateway to the Thousand Islands,” is a picturesque historical village with seven buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Sites, a windmill & an original 1824 stone school. Visit our many local state parks!

Peace and Serenity in Nature: Our fully furnished log home is nestled on one-half-plus wooded acre on the shores of the majestic St. Lawrence river overlooking Chippewa Bay, the islands and Little Chippewa Point. The surrounding woodlands include mature oaks, pines and dogwoods. This location is ideal for families, small retreat groups, family reunions, and writers or artists who need a quiet getaway. Our private access road has almost no car traffic. Nature enthusiasts will enjoy the peaceful, quiet, private location. You can park your boat, fish or just relax on our 8 x 36' dock and our 150' shoreline. You can enjoy boating, swimming, fishing, sailing, nature photography, biking, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, or just relaxing in the peace and quiet of our wooded peninsula. Tranquil Chippewa Bay is famous for its fishing, esp. for walleye, northern pike, perch, largemouth and smallmouth bass, muskie, crappie, bluegill, channel cats, bullhead, and carp.

This is a quiet, peaceful location. We cannot have large, loud parties at this location because of our neighborhood. The neighbors expect a quiet, tranquil environment on this peninsula.
