About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This is a custom cottage built entirely of redwood (he was in the lumber business) by my grandfather in 1926 and has been in our family for four generations. It sits on two+ acre lot right on the water and has been entirely modernized with all the amenities of a year-round home. Brand new kitchen remodel - new cabinets, granite countertops, lighting, etc. Appliances, beds and much of the furniture has all been replaced and upgraded in the last two years. Newly renovated bathrooms. New carpeting and windows throughout the house. Beautiful porch with wicker furniture and Adirondack chairs overlooking the bay. New gas fireplace insert in large stone fireplace for chilly mornings. Great flat rock shore for swimming - especially for younger swimmers.

Wonderful biking, running, walking, swimming, and communing with nature in rural setting.

About Andrew Hamlin

Our family welcomes you to our home... When my parents passed away, I purchased the cottage from my siblings and have vacationed here with our family ever since. This is not a real estate investment, it's our family home. We rent to friends and those we are certain will treat it with respect - and leave it in the same condition as they found it.

Andrew Hamlin purchased this cottage in 1926

Why Andrew Hamlin chose Thousand Islands

My grandfather built this cottage in 1926 and it has been in my family ever since. Located on 2 acres right on the water, beautiful private shoreline perfect for swimming (for young children as well), 25 acres of fields in back of the house to explore, great area for fishing, sailing, bike riding, walking, bird watching, exploring and just relaxing.

What makes this cottage unique

Best sunsets ever.

Beautiful lakefront property, big enough to accommodate family gatherings!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this property several times over the years and are always so happy! Andrew is a very attentive and gracious host, and it’s clear that this property is important to him and his family. It’s immaculate. Plenty of kitchen space and equipment for me to entertain family. Amazing and shallow shoreline that allowed me to relax with my babies and still provides entertainment now that my children are 10 and 8. Stunning sunsets, great walks, great swimming and shoreline sunning, as well as fishing and kayaking. Truly a slice of heaven!

Beautiful Waterfront Cottage

  • 5 of 5

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

Andy's place is great. We had a wonderful stay, even with a fair amount of rain. The kitchen was well equipped, the house is well maintained and spacious. We made strawberry jam, plenty of room in the kitchen for four of us! We entertained on many nights with plenty of seating and dining space. The flat rock bottom lake front was perfect for our 4 year old and 6 year old children. The sunsets were spectacular. Thank you for a very relaxing two weeks.
