About the Property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

“The Chalet” on Wellesley Island is situated in the center where X marks the spot of Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence Seaway of New York.

'The Chalet' is specifically located on Millionaire's Row halfway between Boldt Castle and The Thousand Island Club. This Historic Austrian Swiss Style Chalet was built by George Boldt in 1910. During the Guilded Era Boldt used “The Chalet” as a guest house to for his most notable guests and visitors.

Bell, Florence, St. Elmo and Nobby Islands protect the Main dock from the St. Lawrence Chop and larger boat traffic while still preserving the major view of the shipping channel from the property. At the Main dock watch ships and yachts from around the world travel the St. Lawrence right in your front yard. Closer to shore you can hear the tour boats pass by describing the history of the Chalet to their passengers. Closer yet the classic 'Woodies' come idling by - among them the 'Zipper' from the Antique Boat Museum and the 'Monitor' from Castle Rest.

Swimming at the Main dock is second to none. The crystal clear water is more than 10' deep. After basking in the sun all day there is nothing like a swim in this refreshing water off the dock.

Rental boats can be arranged, but if you have your own bring it! Our 30' finger dock is equiped with power.You will find it very easy to get into due to the prevailing winds. You will find the finger dock literally beside the main dock in position number one. Sitting at the dock on your boat brings the world of the Seaway even closer.

Castles, museums, golf, river cruises, fishing and dive charters and Kingston Ontario, are here at your finger tips in the heart of the Islands.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: I’m a Contractor who specializes in the Masonry Restoration of Historic Structures. You can see one of our recent projects at ' Hopewell Hall”. We reconstructed all of the stone walls, stairs and balconies at this property and you'll see it from the River..

Why the Owner Chose Wellesley Island, NY, USA:
It was easy. I knew the area well and my friends who own Pullman Island AKA 'Castle Rest' also owned the Unit A and still own the Boat House off the to the side of our front door and deck at Unit A. It was a great buy, though it was a gutted shell. It was also the last unit to be sold in the building during the conversion to Condos. It was a perfect do it you self project for a contractor and over the years I've managed to turn it into the classic 'Captain's Quarters' style of living space. Much of the interior is original, the doors, windows and trim. All the natural wood are added features. All the corners of the wood built fixture have eased corner and with the wainscoting one gets the feeling of being on a ship.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The most unique thing about the Chalet is that you can drive to it and when you're standing dockside you know you are in the heart of the 1000 Islands. Our unit is ground level so loading and unloading is a breeze. The 400 square foot deck allows for great outdoor entertaining and enjoyment. The ground level access makes especially appealing for those who might need easier accessibility. You're within walking distance to The Old 1000 Islands Club, Hackers Grill at the 1000 Islands Golf Club and The Boldt Castle Yacht House. There are 3 Golf courses on the Island. Your just a short 7 mile drive down route 100 to the finest dinning at the Wellesley Hotel and all that Thousand Island Park Community has to offer. Walking distance to the Thousand Island Club and fine dinning and entertainment. All three bedromms have a River view.
