Cape Vincent house description

This is a gorgeous four bedroom cottage, (an additional stone cottage houses the 5th bedroom) with a barn(with 'game room' on second, unfinished, floor with ping pong, foos ball, weights) and dock(holds four boats) at the foot of Grenadier Island, which is at the mouth of the St. Lawrence Seaway and is a part of the Thousand Islands.

All the rooms offer a spectacular view of Lake Ontario and/or Basin Harbor. The house sits on over one thousand acres of private property, on a 1200 acre island great for exclusive adventures. The house itself is on seven acres of lawn.

The house has the charm of an old stone house with the comforts and conveniences of a new home. There is a large master bedroom with a private balcony and ensuite tossed marble bathroom, a bedroom with a queen bed and another with a pair of twin beds and lounge area(including pull out sofa), as well as a bunk room with a loft that sleeps four.

The recently renovated separate stone cottage contains a full size bed. The two other bathrooms are relatively new and tiled in marble as well. The full kitchen has almost every convenience; including a kitchen aide, ice cream maker, warming drawer, and waffle iron.

Grenadier Island is nicknamed 'The Paradise of Kings'. On the island you can hike, swim (use of a private beach at the head of the island as well as, flat stone beach by the house), boat, bird watch, mountain bike, fish, water ski, tube, and more! (provided with rental are: canoe, 2 kayaks, and sunfish (small sailboat))

In September/October, there is still plenty to do, from apple picking(numerous apple trees on property, hiking, bon fires by newly renovated fire pit, or just reading by the two fireplaces.

If you choose to leave this bit of paradise, then you can go ashore where you can find tennis, golf, shopping, movies, museums, bars, restaurants, etc., or head over to Kingston, Canada which is about 40 minutes away by boat. (It's a bit longer if you take the Ferry from Cape Vincent), or go to Cape Vincent by 15 minute boat ride, to visit one of its stores or restaurants

Use of a boat is required to get to and from the island. Boat rental possible with local marina or owner. Caretaker will meet you at marina when you first arrive and follow you out in your boat and show you around.

ATV($750/wk) and boat rentals(900/wk) also possible.

              Location

              Island great for mountain biking hiking bird watching exploring. Waters good for fishing water skiing sailing etc. Beach at head of island

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1990

              About the owner: My wife and I have four children (ages 20-26) and two Labradors. We all love the thrill of a new adventure, and this island really helps bring the whole family together. We all become kids again

              Why the Owner Chose Cape Vincent:
              My family is originally from the area, and the Island has been in the family for over sixty five years now. My four kids still love the island; so much that they have cross country skied across the lake to get out there in the dead of winter. There is so much that you can do out there, you will never have enough time to fit it all in... I have tried.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              I have just taken up mountain biking on the island, so if you don't want to rent the ATVs, bring your bikes....or just walk/hike. There is a LOT of history to the island
