Wellesley Island cabin description

Honey Bee Island has been Featured in Cottage Life, Island Reflections, Island Life and Thousand Islands Life Magazines.

Imagine having your very own private island… now unleash your inner ‘Robinson Crusoe’ and live the dream. Wake up to the bird song, grab a coffee and walk down to your own dock to sit and sip while watching the herons lift off the lily pads, see our mink swim by on her morning rounds. Breathe in the pine scented air…your holiday has started.

At Honey Bee Island, you will be saturated with full river views from each window, live in an authentic hand adzed Adirondack styled log cabin provided with every luxury. Dive off the dock, canoe around the islands, cast your line or bask in the sun and work on your tan. At the “Bee” in the very heart of the Thousand Islands, you can enjoy this unique private experience yet still be within minutes of castles in the center of a celebrated boater’s paradise. See many more pics and info at www.honeybeeisland.com


Honey Bee is a beautiful, historic, private island rental nestled in the very heart of the 1000 Islands (1865 enchanting islands to be precise) which dot the shores of St. Lawrence River. It is reachable by boat in 10 minutes from Boldt Castle and eight minutes from the quaint town of Ivy Lea, Ontario. Boat rentals are available locally at a reasonable cost.

Set in a tranquil bay, bordered by a National Park, the newly restored 134-year-old hand adzed log cabin enjoys spectacular sunsets and views in all directions. The property is very upscale. The cabin has all the comfort and amenities of a luxury home, yet on your own private island. It provides a unique holiday off the beaten track in a charming part of the world, an experience of complete relaxation where you are the master of your own time and space. It is the perfect remedy for anyone seeking adventure and escape with utter privacy yet without isolation.

The river is lovely for fishing and swimming, with summer water temperatures usually in the mid 70s as there are several natural underwater warm water ‘springs’ near the dock. At Honey Bee, you enjoy water so clear you think that you are swimming in an aquarium. If you are looking to rough it, this is the wrong place.

Numerous water toys such as swim floats, water tube floats and an assortment of life jackets are provided at your holiday cottage. Boats, Jet Ski’s, kayaks and canoes are available for rent nearby for our guests' enjoyment. Paddle your own canoe or kayak through wilderness routes in the nearby wildlife refuge or fish in a world-class angler's paradise on this huge body of water.

The Cabin is tucked away under pine and oak trees. Waken to the songbirds and watch the sunrise over Hill Island while sipping your morning coffee out on the deck. Hearing the water lapping on the rocks through the open screened windows at night, makes for a restful sleep. Relaxing on your own private Island, it's just ..ahhhhhhhh! Yet, all conveniences are just minutes away. Supermarkets, restaurants, liquor stores, post office, churches, pharmacy, just everything including a hospital is available within minutes in Alexandria Bay directly by boat to their respective docks or by car to Gananoque.
