About the Property
House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3 full Baths, (Sleeps max 12)
All the rooms offer a spectacular view of Lake Ontario and/or Basin Harbor. The house sits on approximately 700 acres of private preserve, on a 1200 acre island great for exclusive nature adventures. The house itself is on seven acres of lawn.
The house has the charm of an old stone house with the comforts and conveniences of a new home. There is a large master bedroom with a private balcony and ensuite tossed marble bathroom, a bedroom with a queen bed and another with a pair of twin beds and lounge area(including pull out sofa), as well as a bunk room with a loft that sleeps four.
The separate stone cottage contains a full size bed. The two other bathrooms(all bathrooms have at least a shower) are relatively new and tiled in marble as well. The full kitchen has almost every convenience; including a kitchen aide, ice cream maker, warming drawer, and waffle iron.
In September/October, there is still plenty to do, from apple picking(numerous apple trees on property, hiking, bon fires by newly renovated fire pit, or just reading by the two fireplaces.
If you choose to leave this bit of paradise, then you can go ashore where you can find tennis, golf, shopping, movies, museums, bars, restaurants, etc., or head over to Kingston, Canada which is about 40 minutes away by boat. (It's a bit longer if you take the Ferry from Cape Vincent), or go to Cape Vincent by 15 minute boat ride, to visit one of its stores or restaurants
USE OF BOAT REQUIRED to get to and from the island(5 to ten minute boat ride). Boat rental possible with owner. Caretaker will meet you at marina when you first arrive and follow you out in your boat and show you around. Alternatively, if you don't want stress of renting and operating a boat, or don't plan on much boating, arrangements can be made for caretaker to transport guests back and forth.
Options: 2 ATVs($775/wk plus security deposit), New for 2016: 4 seater Polaris, with 4 person trailer($775/wk plus security deposit)(discount if combined) and boat rental($950/wk plus security deposit) also possible. Foregoing will be pro rated if less than a week. Cleaning is deducted from deposit
Keywords: House on Thousand islands, with all amenities, including Internet, landline, sat tv, on 1000 acres. Pet friendly

Island great for mountain biking hiking bird watching exploring. Water is good for fishing water skiing sailing etc. Beach at head of island
Year Purchased: 1990
About the owner: My wife and I have four children (ages 23-29) and currently just one yellow lab We all love the thrill of a new adventure, and this island really helps bring the whole family together. We all become kids again
Why the Owner Chose Cape Vincent, NY, USA:
My family is originally from the area, and the Island has been in the family for over seventy years . My four kids still love the island; so much that they have cross country skied across the lake to get out there in the dead of winter. There is so much that you can do out there, you will never have enough time to fit it all in... I am still trying.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I have just taken up mountain biking on the island, so if you don't want to rent the ATVs, bring your bikes....or just walk/hike. There is a LOT of history to the island
