Hammond lodge description
Beautiful & spacious 1600 sq. ft. lodge in the heart of Oak Point, felt by many to be the most family friendly and enjoyable community in the Thousands Islands! Muskie Lodge is one of five waterfront lodges on our property.
Inside the lodge, enjoy the open living/dining area, the kitchen with full sized appliances and bathroom with full tub/shower. Relax on the wrap-around deck while playing a game of Monopoly or enjoying a sunset dinner overlooking the bay. The expanded dock area has plenty of room to sit and enjoy the view, jump in the water, dock your boat, fish, sip your coffee in the morning or a cocktail at happy hour. View the majestic St. Lawrence all the way to the lighthouse on Crossover Island from the deck. Take a day trip to many US & Canadian attractions in Alexandria Bay, Clayton, Kingston or Brockville. Museums, historic castles & forts, island parks, great restaurants. Perfect for families, couples, fishermen, hunters, golfers, cyclists. Dock space and canoe rental are available.
There are two large bedrooms on the main floor, one with a king bed and the other with two twins (platform beds which could be pushed together to form another king). Upstairs is a large bedroom with bunkbeds and a great sitting area complete with futon couch and chairs (kids' retreat!).
Muskie Lodge is part of The Lodges at Oak Point, and is located right on the St. Lawrence River, on Schermerhorn Bay. We are halfway between the towns of Alexandria Bay and Ogdensburg, NY. Alexandria Bay has lots of tourist attractions including wonderful boat tours through Millionaire's Row, under the Thousand Islands Bridge, & to the amazing Boldt Castle on Heart Island. Bill Johnston's Pirate Days are August 10 - 19 this year in Alex Bay - always lots of fun. The Remington Museum is in Ogdensburg and offers many activities for children in addition to their exhibits. In Clayton is the Antique Boat Museum - their world remowned Antique Boat Show is August 3 - 5. Singer Castle on Dark Island is right outside of Chippewa Bay (very short boat ride away) and can be reached by your boat and shuttle or tour boats - you will love the secret passages built into it!

Great 4th of July Week
Great 4th of July Week
We stayed at the Muskie Lodge and had a great week! The lodge has a beautiful wrap around porch and a great view of the St. Lawrence River. The lodge was super clean and very spacious. Lisa (the owner) was very helpful and took care of all of our needs. We have already booked for 4th of July 2014.

Owner response: Thanks, Bill! I can see that deck from where I am sitting now and am remembering how much fun Oak Pointers have over the July 4th week. It's great to see the youngest members of your family start to take part in the traditional activities of that week. My, how our families continue to grow! We will be very happy to welcome you back next year.
We have been vacationing at Oak Point for 60+ years and chose The Lodges at Oak Point to house our entire family this year. We acutally rented 4 of the Lodges and found them all to be spotlessly clean, well-equipped, and very comfortable. The owners were delightful to work with and our vacation was just perfect. Our group included ages 9 months to 62 years with 9 children total, and we found something fun for everyone at Oak Point. Very safe for children, excellent fishing, sandy-bottom swimming, clear water, cool nights, sunny days and a week spent with loved-ones. A vacation that memories are made of!!!

Owner response: What a fun week that was - you all are so creative with your family Olympics. It's so beautiful to see the love of Oak Point and the River being passed down to the next generation. Thank you so much for staying at the Lodges and showing us what family really means!
Wonderful family vacation
Wonderful family vacation
Just got back from a wonderful week at Oak Point! We (self, husband, two 14 yr old boys) stayed in Muskie Lodge and it was spacious, comfortable, clean, and well maintained, just as advertised. This was my first time renting a home off the internet and I found the process to be easy and safe. I had been worried about mosquitoes but there was usually a breeze off the water that kept them away. Lisa (owner) was available nearby if needed. We brought our canoe (they have one, too) and paddled around the little bay and we also rented a power boat for two days of getting further out in the river and fishing. We're not fishermen, but after some tips from our new neighbors, we caught enough bass for two dinners. We also took Uncle Sam boat tour around the islands and visited Boldt castle, well worth the price. We made a fire in the fire pit and roasted marshmallows most nights, and went to a drive-in movie one night. Also spent lazy times reading on the porch, splashing in the water, and watching the wildlife. A great combination of relaxing for the adults and fun for the teens.

Owner response: Thank you for staying with us - taking a chance with Internet vacation listings - and thank you for your generosity in writing this review! It was great to see your family really jump in and take advantage of all the Thousand Islands has to offer. I think it would be safe to say no moss grows under the two 14 year old' feet - they were in perpetual motion, having a great time. Our best wishes to you all!
Great place to stay.
Great place to stay.
I'm not sure where to start. The owners were absolutely wonderful, very nice. The house was as stated on the web site. It is a beautiful place. It is a family oriented community and everyone was very nice. I am so happy that I found the Muskie Lodge online, the next time we head up to the 1000 islands we will definatly stay there. Wonderful wonderful place.

About the owner: Lisa & Bill are brother and sister 4th generation Oak Pointers. They grew up coming to this special Thousand islands community, and love nothing better than spending time there with family & friends. Lisa and her husband, Stephen, own a year round home at Oak Point where they will be retiring, and Bill and his wife, Alicia, share ownership of a beautiful family home at the mouth of the bay. Stephen is seriously into antique wood Lyman boats, while Bill has been seen jetskiing along the shore with their poodle, Henri, along for the ride! They have managed to indoctrinate their children, who are now old enough to return on their own - the 5th generation!
Why the Owner Chose Hammond:
When we were growing up, the current Muskie Lodge was a much smaller building called the Oak Point Trading Post, where you could get everything from popsicles to worms to gas for your boat. The original building burned down in 1995, and a beautiful home was built in its place. We love that we now own such a great locally historic landmark and can carry on the hospitality and fun we so enjoyed there! Oak Point is in a quieter section of the Thousands Islands - less constant boat traffic than some of the more tourist oriented towns. Plenty of room to enjoy boating, fishing, swimming, waterskiing, island picnicing, as well as wonderful attractions nearby, from island castles, to Fort Henry in Kingston, Ont. to Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg, Ont.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Oak Point truly is a one of a kind community. Kids love all the activities - swimming in the bay, fishing off the dock, visits to the Acorn Community Center for candy & game nights, the 4th of July parade, land & water games and ice cream social. Adults love it for the same reasons! Take a walk around the circle and visit the historic cemetery, swing on the swings at the Acorn, bike through the farm country, buy local produce and baked goods at an Amish farm. Free town boat launch just steps away from the lodges. The earliest Native Americans called this region Manitowana - the Garden of the Great Spirit, and it is a vacationers' dream! Nature and water activities abound - cruise the 1000 islands, kayak in the early morning or evening to get close to nature, sail or windsurf through the whitecaps, go water-skiing or tubing along the coast, jet ski through the seaway channel, watch the Poker Run speedboat races between Kingston and Brockville, start a list of all the international ships plying the channel (they are especially beautiful at night with their deck lights glowing). The Thousands Islands is the world's finest fresh water diving destination - dive the many wrecks in water so clear you can see up to 100'. Or just sit on the dock and dangle your feet in the water! Fishing - Pike season starts the 1st Sat. in April; Bass & Muskie seasons start the 3rd Sat. in June. Muskie fishing is best in late fall, and ice fishing is great in mid winter! Kids love catching perch, sunfish & rock bass off the docks. Golfing - nearest course is Langbrook Meadows in Brier Hill; nearby are 3 on Wellesley Island, 3 in Clayton, 2 in Governeur, New York State Park Course in Ogdensburg, Alexandria Bay Municipal Course in Alex Bay. Hunting - we are open for duck & deer hunting seasons in the Spring/Fall. Cycling - there is a great off-road, rails-to-trails system along the river, with difficulty levels ranging from simple to challenging.
