"We rented the Muskie Lodge along with the other 4 lodges on the property at the Lodges at Oak Point for a family reunion. The ages ranged from 3 to 87 and everyone had a fantastic time. Although we did some touring, the trip highlights were the times we spend enjoying the waterfront. The river was perfect for swimming and we rented boats to fish, tube, and just cruise around exploring. The Muskie Lodge is spacious and allowed us to congregate inside for games and meal preparation. We gathered at the picnic tables on the lawn in the evening for dinner and several nights made s 'mores in the fire pit by the river. We've been holding these reunions every other year since the early 70's and we really appreciated the well-stocked and organized accommodations and the kindness of one of the owners, Lisa, who was always responsive and patiently answered a lot of questions. It was a FANTASTIC week! I would highly recommend the Lodges at Oak Point!"

"Step outside your car onto some of the most beautiful property/scenery around. The house is lovely to walk into as well. You are greeted with a nice fresh smell of a clean, well cared for home. The amenities provided help make your stay even better. Whether you like to watch the freighters (we saw 27 in a week) or like to wake up to the sound of the waves, this is the place to be. Not only do you get to enjoy all of the above, but Andy Hays and his team are impeccable folks to deal with. Follow through and communication were excellent and they were a pleasure to work with. A beautiful week with beautiful memories of a beautiful place."

"The cottage has the most beautiful views of the river! It is very well stacked with everything you might need. It is very private and serene, although we were there during the Memorial Day weekend and neighbors had parties with a bunch of little kids, we were only able to see and hear them when cruised by them to and from the dock on the boat. The dock by the way is pretty big.
We travel to the 1000 Islands a few times a summer and have stayed at many properties in the past 10 years, Big Dipper Cottage is deffinately the cleanest we've stayed at!
Thank you, Steve for the wonderful getaway! We look forward to staying at Big Dipper again in the future!"

"My family got together for the first time in years at this cottage. All 11 people were comfortable and had plenty of space to get together and also to find places for smaller groups. The kitchen was great for preparing meals for a large group. We ate meals both inside and outside on the covered deck. Two kayaks added to the fun for kids and adults even though we brought our own boats. We enjoyed the dock and fire pit. All in all, a great place to stay."
