Property description

Beautiful & spacious 1600 sq. ft. lodge in the heart of Oak Point, felt by many to be the most family friendly and enjoyable community in the Thousands Islands! Muskie Lodge is one of five waterfront lodges on our property.

Inside the lodge, enjoy the open living/dining area, the kitchen with full sized appliances and bathroom with full tub/shower. Relax on the wrap-around deck while playing a game of Monopoly or enjoying a sunset dinner overlooking the bay. The expanded dock area has plenty of room to sit and enjoy the view, jump in the water, dock your boat, fish, sip your coffee in the morning or a cocktail at happy hour. View the majestic St. Lawrence all the way to the lighthouse on Crossover Island from the deck. Take a day trip to many US & Canadian attractions in Alexandria Bay, Clayton, Kingston or Brockville. Museums, historic castles & forts, island parks, great restaurants. Perfect for families, couples, fishermen, hunters, golfers, cyclists. Dock space and canoe rental are available.

There are two large bedrooms on the main floor, one with a king bed and the other with three twins (two are platform beds which could be pushed together to form another king). Upstairs is a large bedroom with bunkbeds and a great sitting area complete with futon couch and chairs (kids' retreat!).

Muskie Lodge is part of The Lodges at Oak Point, and is located right on the St. Lawrence River, on Schermerhorn Bay. We are halfway between the towns of Alexandria Bay and Ogdensburg, NY. Alexandria Bay has lots of tourist attractions including wonderful boat tours through Millionaire's Row, under the Thousand Islands Bridge, & to the amazing Boldt Castle on Heart Island. The Remington Museum is in Ogdensburg and offers many activities for children in addition to their exhibits. In Clayton is the Antique Boat Museum - their world remowned Antique Boat Show is always the first weekend in August. Singer Castle on Dark Island is right outside of Chippewa Bay (very short boat ride away) and can be reached by your boat and shuttle or tour boats - you will love the secret passages built into it!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Lisa & Bill are brother and sister 4th generation Oak Pointers. They grew up coming to this special Thousand islands community, and love nothing better than spending time there with family & friends. Lisa and her husband, Stephen, own a year round home at Oak Point where they will be retiring, and Bill and his wife, Alicia, share ownership of a beautiful family home at the mouth of the bay. Stephen is seriously into antique wood Lyman boats, while Bill has been seen jetskiing along the shore with their poodle, Henri, along for the ride! They have managed to indoctrinate their children, who are now old enough to return on their own - the 5th generation!

Why the Owner Chose Hammond, NY, USA:
When we were growing up, the current Muskie Lodge was a much smaller building called the Oak Point Trading Post, where you could get everything from popsicles to worms to gas for your boat. The original building burned down in 1995, and a beautiful home was built in its place. We love that we now own such a great locally historic landmark and can carry on the hospitality and fun we so enjoyed there! Oak Point is in a quieter section of the Thousands Islands - less constant boat traffic than some of the more tourist oriented towns. Plenty of room to enjoy boating, fishing, swimming, waterskiing, island picnicing, as well as wonderful attractions nearby, from island castles, to Fort Henry in Kingston, Ont. to Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg, Ont.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Oak Point truly is a one of a kind community. Kids love all the activities - swimming in the bay, fishing off the dock, visits to the Acorn Community Center for candy & game nights, the 4th of July parade, land & water games and ice cream social. Adults love it for the same reasons! Take a walk around the circle and visit the historic cemetery, swing on the swings at the Acorn, bike through the farm country, buy local produce and baked goods at an Amish farm. Free town boat launch just steps away from the lodges. The earliest Native Americans called this region Manitowana - the Garden of the Great Spirit, and it is a vacationers' dream! Nature and water activities abound - cruise the 1000 islands, kayak in the early morning or evening to get close to nature, sail or windsurf through the whitecaps, go water-skiing or tubing along the coast, jet ski through the seaway channel, watch the Poker Run speedboat races between Kingston and Brockville, start a list of all the international ships plying the channel (they are especially beautiful at night with their deck lights glowing). The Thousands Islands is the world's finest fresh water diving destination - dive the many wrecks in water so clear you can see up to 100'. Or just sit on the dock and dangle your feet in the water! Fishing - Pike season starts the 1st Sat. in April; Bass & Muskie seasons start the 3rd Sat. in June. Muskie fishing is best in late fall, and ice fishing is great in mid winter! Kids love catching perch, sunfish & rock bass off the docks. Golfing - nearest course is Langbrook Meadows in Brier Hill; nearby are 3 on Wellesley Island, 3 in Clayton, 2 in Governeur, New York State Park Course in Ogdensburg, Alexandria Bay Municipal Course in Alex Bay. Hunting - we are open for duck & deer hunting seasons in the Spring/Fall. Cycling - there is a great off-road, rails-to-trails system along the river, with difficulty levels ranging from simple to challenging.
