                      The 1000 islands (there are actually 1,793) stretch for 70 miles from Kingston to Cardinal. The famous cruises leave Rockport , a scenic 35 minute drive southwest of Cardinal on the St. Lawrence River.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: Married 41 years, five children, twelve grandchildren. My wife and I own a Contract Research Organization which manages clinical trials for the biotechnology industry.

                      Why the Owner Chose Cardinal:
                      We inherited the cottage. It is a fabulous location but quite far from where we live in California. However, we use it two weeks every summer.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      There are lots of birds - geese, ducks, cranes, kingfishers as well as many different types of small birds, due to a large wetland located nearby.
