Recent Thousand Islands reviews

  • Perfect!

    "This was our first time booking a vacation rental online. We were skeptical to trust the reviews as we know that not everything you read online is accurate. Once we began communicating with Greg, the owner, and then arrived at the the cabin and looked around, we knew right away that the reviews and comments we very accurate! We are familiar with the Pulaski area as we have camped in a nearby site for many years. With a growing family that now includes three children between the ages of four months and five years of age, we were looking to find something that felt more like home yet was far away from the regular routines of being at home. This cabin did that and more! It had all the necessities that a family with (or without) children would need and added luxuries to make it feel like we were on a vacation. It was beautifully secluded, kid-friendly, and close enough to local attractions that we could enjoy a different activity (fishing, Salmon River Falls, museums and historical attractions, etc.) each day. During our first night at the cabin, we were already thinking about friends and family that we could invite for future family vacations. More importantly, we were already considering a romantic getaway. (No kids allowed!) This cabin has all the bases covered in terms of who would enjoy a stay. From a guys hunting trip, ladies getaway (wine and relax), a couple's romantic retreat, to families with children of all ages, this cabin can meet all of your needs. To make the entire experience even better, Greg was wonderful to work with. He was flexible, easy to communicate with and trustworthy. As I mentioned, this was our first time planning a vacation using an online source. We had many questions and he was patient and willing to answer them. This proved to be a situation where the reviews were accurate and insightful. We trusted others reviews and our gut instincts. In the end, it was a great vacation and one that we won't forget!"

  • 3 years running...

    "We had the pleasure of being one of the first "guests" when this marvelous cottage became available 3 years ago. We have come back each year because of all it has to offer and the outstanding setting. I know there are many properties from which to choose along the lake, but we have never been tempted to look anywhere else. Lake Ontario showed many of its moods this year, but allowed for several days of kayaking and fishing. Charters are also available for deeper water fishing. I used John Miller and had a very good time, even if the fish were "resting". Grocery and many other stores are less than 2-4 miles from the property. You can get anything you might need or want, or even go shopping for the fall. Downtown also has many shops for a day of exploration or check out the museums on the rainy day(s). The sunsets here are almost always amazing. It all adds up for making a most relaxing and refreshing stay! The cottage itself offers great flexibility. You can use all of it or just parts, depending on how many folks are there. As it is all on one level, with only one step in a place or two, it is easy to navigate for those with some limitation. Everything you need is there. You really don't have to bring anything except your personal items. There are even two kayaks and a number of fishing poles for those who wish to give it a go. (Larger folks, like me, may wish to bring their own kayak, however, as the two that are there are more suited for average to smaller sized persons.) As you read these reviews, you will see how much we have all enjoyed being able to stay here. It should continue to be noted that direct access to the lake in front of the cottage is limited to the more fit. There is, however, a path off the property, through the adjacent park, that will get you to the water about a 100 yards down. When the water is rough, much of the stone covered beach can be inaccessible due to the wash of the waves. (It makes for wonderful photography, however!) We have no doubt you will be happy with a stay here. It truly is a wonderful place in every way with something for everyone. Thanks to all who make this cottage a welcoming place!!"

  • A Wonderful Week on the St. Lawrence River

    "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!"

  • Great Place!

    "We loved our stay at this wonderful cottage in T.I. Park. We have a 3 and 2 year old, so we appreciated the ideal location to the playground and the Guzzle. The screened in front porch is fantastic and well equipped with rocking chairs, a table and even a swinging bench. This cottage is well stocked and perfectly laid-out. We would definitely stay again."

Thousand Islands Travel Tips

A Thousand Memories on the Thousand Islands

The Thousand Islands region is a popular vacation destination that spans between upstate New York and southeastern Ontario, Canada. However, the name Thousand Islands really is not accurate at all. There are closer to 2,000 small and large islands comprising the region. The region is incredibly picturesque and memorable. The region attracts international tourism and encompasses communities along the St. Lawrence River as well as the eastern shores of Lake Ontario. The region’s name hales from the islands that dot the river and lake. When you consider Thousand Islands as your destination, make sure you book your travel for the region’s dry season, from March through August.

Places to Explore in the Thousand Islands

When planning your stay in Thousand Islands cabins, you are going to need to think about where you would like to explore. The name says it all. With a thousand possibilities, how can you possibly narrow it down? Each island really does have its own style, character, and charm. You could visit all of them and get a different experience each time. Alexandria Bay, Clayton, Massena, Ogdensburg, and Sackets Harbor are just some of the places you can spend the days.

Alexandria Bay lodging is in the heart of the region and perfect for your initial taste of the Thousand Islands. Be sure to visit Boldt Castle, located on Heart Island, as well as Wellesley Island which is particularly beautiful. Clayton was once a ship-building port and a great draw for people who love to fish and visit museums. Massena and Ogdensburg will give you a sense of the region’s history with some of the oldest buildings in the area. Sackets Harbor is a quaint little village that boasts historic buildings and plenty of outdoor fun.

Popular Activities in the Region

It does not matter which Thousand Islands vacation rentals you have chosen when it comes to having tons of family fun. There is so much to do, ranging from boating and fishing in the warmer months to cross country skiing and hiking in the cooler months. Ironically, the Thousand Islands do not have too many beach locations for vacationers but there are a few. Potter’s Beach on American Grindstone Island is a cute, sandy beach ideal for boaters. The Lake of the Isles is a great location for anchoring and swimming when the weather is warm enough. It is just cut off from the St. Lawrence River and has limited access. Though one of the most fun things to do is to take your time to really look at some of the tiny islands in the region. Perhaps you will come across “Just Big Enough Island” which only has room for a single house.

Transportation in and Around Thousand Islands

If you plan to fly into the Thousand Islands region, your best bet is probably Syracuse, New York. If you fly in, you will definitely need to rent a car, as the region is about 1.5 hours north, right off Interstate 81. If you have a boat, you can sail to the islands and dock at designated locations.

During your stay in Thousand Islands resorts, it is helpful to know that there is very little public transportation offered. There are small ferryboats that will take you back and forth from Cape Vincent, New York to Wolf Island, Ontario but you will ultimately need a car. Many of the attractions, including Boldt Castle and Singer Castle, require that you have access to your own private boat or a tour shuttle boat.

The Natural Side of Thousand Islands

With more than 144 species of fish, 17 species of coastal birds, and various other creatures, the Thousand Islands are an idyllic marine nature conservation area. The wealth of creatures that inhabit the area make it ideal for anyone wanting to get a closer look. Diving, snorkeling, and fishing are great ways to spend your days. If you prefer to stay on land, bird-watching and hiking are the ways to go. Of course, if you choose to come in the winter, many of the animals will be hard to detect but that will not eliminate the beauty of the area. The winter is also a beautiful time to visit.
