Cape Vincent estate description

Maple Grove is a majestic Greek Revival home located on 7 acres of beautifully landscaped property with 700 feet of waterfront on the St. Lawrence River.The home is located in the Broadway Historic District which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It is in the village of Cape Vincent, gateway to the Thousand Islands area of upstate New York. Built in 1838 by Theophilus Peugnet, a distinguished officer in Napoleon's Army, this spacious home (over 4000 square feet) will accommodate a maximum of 14 guests, including children, in 6 bedrooms. (Please see separate carriage house also available on property, No. 3480374) The expansive lawn area on the grounds can be tented for large functions such as weddings, receptions, musical concerts, and parties. Maple Grove is the ideal location for exploring both the Canadian and U.S. sides of the famous Thousand Islands Region. Guests may enjoy swimming, sailing, boating, kayaking, bicycling, snorkeling, scuba diving, strolling in our beautiful gardens, walking to nearby Tibbitts Light House, or sitting on the front porch watching the ocean going ships as they pass to and from the Great Lakes.
No-cost 48 hour boat tie up may be available at the village dock and the dock at the State Department of Environmental Conservation Research Station. There is a public boat launch ramp in the village. For those who like to explore, the vehicle ferry to Kingston, Ontario leaves from Cape Vincent. Boat tours of the islands and castles are available from nearby Clayton, Alexandria Bay, and Gananoque, Ontario. Maple Grove is the home of the Chopin International Piano Competition for Young People the second weekend in September.
Maple Grove is located on the mainland. It is not on an island. You will not need a boat as you would for almost all of the islands. You will not have to deal with the weather and logistics problems of being on an island.
