Alexandria Bay cottage description

This site was originally the location of a Million dollar residence that burned in 1996. The lot was vacant for two years before the owner decided to build a small summer cottage. It has a spacious over-sized deck with a panoramic view over looking Boldt Castle. The deck has several commercial lounge chairs with small tables to host afternoon cocktails or casual gatherings for sunbathing. A propane bbq grill sits at the river entrance to the screened-in porch adjacent to a few round outdoor dining tables that sit 6 people each. The screened-in porch has several pieces of wicker furniture facing the riverfront with a TV and area to dine if not using the deck. Leaving the porch to the cottage through a set of sliding glass door is a kitchen with a full size refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and a full selection of cooking and tableware. The kitchen is open to the adjoining living-room that is sundrenched on three sides with multiple sliding glass doors and the view mimics that from the deck. It includes a tv, two sofas (one sleeper sofa) sitting chairs and coffee tables. The cottage sits on a ledge 30 feet above the St. Lawrence River directly above a private dock that has deep water access. The east end of the dock features a ramp that can be used for kayak's, canoes, and multiple types of personal watercraft. Access to the dock is rugged via a walking path through the natural vegetation and caution is advised to the elderly. More information is available by contacting the owners directly.

This is a must see structure that is available to preview at the end of each Uncle Sam Boat Tours daily tours. The history of the islands is overwhelming with stories of rich and famous to love and tragedy. Visit the Alexandria Bay Chamber of Commerce for details.

                  Deep water is located off our dock for a variety of different types of boats. Upstream is Boldt Castle and Alex. Bay while downstream is Goose Bay & Chippewa Bay with historic Jorstadt Castle, 8 miles. Jorstadt Castle is a 28 room, 4 story, 19th century stone castle built by the Bourne Family as a hunting lodge. The castle is now open to the public.

                  Carnegie Bay sits directly behind the cottage is a medium size inlet that offers warm shallow waters and is extremely protected from the prevailing winds. Carnegie Bay is great for snorkeling, Kayaking and mooring for low draft vessels.
