Thousand Island Park cottage description

Fishtales cottage is situated on Wellesley Island in Thousand Island Park, 400 yards from the majestic Saint Lawrence River.

We have outfitted our cottage to host as your own personal Bed and Breakfast. Freshly baked cookies from the Wellesley Island Hotel, feather beds with down filled duvets, white terry cloth robes, and bikes await your arrival. Linens and towels are provided. The cottage has 5 separate bedrooms, each with its own closet and dresser, and two full bathrooms. There is baseboard heat on the lower level and ceiling fans in every room. The spacious cottage boasts a front and back screened porch as well as an outdoor entertaining area with a picnic table for ten and a commercial grill. Wireless internet connection and cable television are provided. Parking is directly in front of the cottage (unusual in TIP). Sat-Sat rental.

Located in the center of the park on St. Lawrence Avenue, Fishtales is just a skip to the playground, the Guzzle for ice cream, or a refreshing dip in the river off the main dock or the kid-friendly “Cove.” Fishtales is also walking distance to fine dining and shopping experiences and even an English-style pub. The park’s other amenities include a nearby grocery store, church services, and outdoor movies.

“And we have just begun watching the river run.
Listening and learning and yearning.
Run, river, run.” - Loggins and Messina
