  • What a great spot!

    "We spent a week at this wonderful home away from home, and it was delightful! The rooftop porch on the boathouse was our favorite spot to watch traffic on the River, and it was great that it was under a roof itself, so that those of us who are sun-sensitive could get out of the sun. The view of Boldt Castle was fun, and the River was calm enough that the kids used kayaks to get around. One afternoon a neighbor even took my daughter sailing! The house is comfortable and roomy. We loved the fact that it had lots of spaces where one could go to get away from it all for a while, but the living room and the WONDERFUL PORCH were terrific places for all of us to congregate. The separate "apartment" was perfect for the grandparents to get a little peace and quiet occasionally. The kitchen was well equipped and easy to work in. The neighborhood was quiet, and there was plenty of good walking and good biking in the area. But the best by far was the porch of the house and the porch on the boathouse. Those alone made it worthwhile! One suggestion we would make would be a couple of reading lamps for evenings. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely property with us!"

  • Great vacation spot with amazing views!!

    "We have stayed here for many summers and it just gets better each year. The two cottages make it great for families to stay as the kids can have their own space. The new deck has added more seating to enjoy the amazing views of the River!! The owners are great to deal with and it is part of reason why we come back each year. Although, the hot tub is really the number one reason. It is great to sit in and watch the ships. We will be back next year!!"

  • amazing get-away

    "My fiancé and I wanted to spend some time together, so we chose to go to the 1000 Islands. We wanted to be close to the tourist stuff, but far enough so we could enjoy some peace. After looking through some properties, the Chalet caught our eye. We were excited to talk with Howard and Tracy about staying in their unit, as were they. Howard was very helpful and answered any questions we had promptly. When we arrived to the Chalet, we were in awe. The pictures definitely do not do it justice! The view is amazing, and being able to see the shipping line allowed us to see several ships go by both day and night. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting to get away for a bit. It's great for small families, or couples who just want some time for themselves. Although some of the other unit owners were there while we were, we felt our privacy was respected. The unit has its own entrance, as well as the unit next to this one; so it was nice to not have people walking by. Everyone there is so nice and super helpful! One regret we have is that neither of us have a boat, so we felt restricted in what we could do. Alex Bay is literally right across the water, but is a 20 minute drive. On the upside, it's a pretty drive. All in all, this place was great! Pleasant owners, helpful neighbors, and an amazing view - we couldn't have asked for more!"

  • Great place! Highly recommend!

    "We just got back from renting Dan's place for the week and had an excellent time. Beautiful house, amazing view, and the Lake of the Isles was nice and calm even though we had some windy weather last week. Our two year old son had a blast catching sunfish off the dock. I'd definitely give it a 10 out of 10."
