"We enjoyed a very relaxing stay at a beautiful well appointed Cape Vincent cottage. The cottage had everything as described and was a wonderful home away from home while we were on vacation. The owners were very helpful with boat launch information as well. We hope to return again next year!"

"Great views !! Awesome surroundings. Fishing, boating and swimming in crystal clear water
right off your own dock!! This house has it all. House was in great condition. Views of Boldt Castle, Alex Bay and the St Lawrence from your private dock. Owner easy to deal with. Would highly recommend. See you next year !!

A 2 book week or sportsman's paradise. And anything in between!
"Enjoy a sweeping, sunny view of the water framed by shade trees from the lawn, deck or house. Fish from the dock, or launch your boat or kayak. A rowboat is available but rowing it a mile to the sand bar (and back after a day in the sun and water) is no easy task so use discretion. It was nice to just lazily bob around the water in it.
We chose not to swim off the dock - it was just a bit too 'pondy' for us, however you may very well enjoy it!
The house is clean and comfortable, but since its beautifully shaded, it's also a bit dark inside. I understand its to lessen the attraction of bugs to the screens/windows (which are in in excellent shape) at night, but for us the indoor lighting was inadequate.
The owners do list the kitchen as stocked with 'basics' and this is spot on. Pots, pans, dishes and flatware. I don't go on vacation to cook but do enjoy it to a minimum; no chef's knife, cutting board, dish drainer, colander... you get the picture.
Renee and Russ greeted us warmly and gifted us with freshly baked cake and fresh fruit. They're was a bouquet of wildflowers on the window sill which a great touch. They did call before they were on their way back up (they have a 2nd house on the property) to ask if we needed anything, but I didn't want to go into a list of kitchen ware. The kitchen situation and lighting certainly did not ruin our vacation but they were noticed.
Explore the area - marshes, dunes, harbors, small towns, country roads, creeks and gorges. Go to a local fish fry on Friday night. If you road cycle bring your bike. Look up Ride Oswego County bike; they club welcomed me on two of their rides. It was a bit of a drive to get there, but well worth the camaraderie. There are also route maps to be found online.
We found a spot to bring our dog to the beach - go to Southwick State Park and access the beach from the RV end (parking in the lot, then walking.) Off the guarded area furry friends abound and all were well behaved and watched over. You can also access the beach via a 15 minute hike/walk off Pierrepont Place. Bring bug spray and closed shoes as it can get spongy. It is a beautiful lowland area.
It was a lovely vacation in a cozy cottage on the water, and highly recommended. Enjoy!"

"This cottage has extraordinary water views, and a front porch with comfortable furniture for enjoying those views. The area has lots to see and do, including its proximity to the Thousand Islands. Good restaurants within a reasonable distance. Ft. Drum is not far away if one is visiting family posted there. Inside the cottage, it is quaint and spacious. The fireplace with its gas insert was cozy and warm on cool September evenings. The place is well appointed in the kitchen, although we didn't do much cooking! The weather was wonderful. We had a very nice week"
