Amazing Cottage- Historic Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation we have had in years! Great views, amazing architecture, fabulous location! The cottage may have been built in the 1800s but it has all the modern amenities. We had a dishwasher, washer and dryer and coffee maker. The whole area is historic and there is so much to do. We went swimming, fishing, took a river cruise and visited the towns of Clayton and Alexandria Bay. Top notch vacation destination!!! Home owner is very attentive to renters needs. I highly suggest renting the golf cart for added convenience!!

Wonderful Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks. The cottage is lovely. Very informal and comfortable. It's placed in a cove which the wind comes off the river keeping the cottage cool in the hot afternoons. Thousand Island Park is a place out of time with vintage Victorian cottages, wide open green spaces and an atmosphere of friends and family...almost like a Norman Rockwell portrait. TIP is well located where you can cross over to to Canada or take a drive through the Adirondacks. We had a great time. Mary the owner is very helpful. Will absolutely go back.
