About the Property
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)
The cottage is set on the main street of Marysville, Wolfe Island, the first and biggest of the Thousand Islands. The cottage sits just steps from the summer Ferry dock in the village and enjoys the summer buzz of the seasonal cottagers, ferry traffic, and local restaurants and entertainment. Srping, fall and winter, the village is quieter with the 'islander' traffic, and occasional community event or festival.
The quaint Victorian cottage look and wrap around porch is maintained on the outside, while the inside is finished in white-washed wood for an east coast cottage feel. The front porch is south facing, perfect for people-watching from one of the wicker rockers. Or you can take your place on the upper balcony off the master bedroom and keep an eye on the ferry line up and the lakeside activity at the same time. The waterside deck off the dining room overlooks the large yard and dock with great sunset views and the twinkling lights of Kingston at night. Those are the same great views you get from almost everywhere inside the house.
Downstairs, the kitchen, dining and living room co-exist in one open space. The living room includes a sofa that converts to a double bed. The kitchen is fully equipped including full sized fridge, range, microwave, coffee maker, kettle and toaster as well as all necessary cooking and serving dishes. The upper floor includes a master bedroom with a queen sized bed and attached balcony. The other bedroom has two twin beds, ideally suited to children. In both rooms the beds are set up to make the most of the lake views. The bathroom upstairs has a corner tub, perfect for a relaxing soak or kids' splash.
The city of Kingston and all it has to offer is just a 20 minute ferry ride away. On the island, there are two 9-hole golf courses, biking routes, and a superb and secluded sandy beach. Less than a five minute walk from the cottage are three restaurants, the bakery, general store, liquor store, library, post office, bike rental and the ferry to the mainland.
Property rental includes use of a kayak, canoe or rowboat.

Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: With a passion for boats and swimming, our vacations all tend to lead to the water. When we renovated, we aimed for the feel of a cottage on the coast of Maine, overlooking the boats in the harbour.
Why the Owner Chose Frontenac Islands, ON, Canada:
We bought the home in run-down condition because of the fabulous location and boat access to the lake. Although the home is a mere 3 minute walk from our permanent residence, we use the cottage as a peaceful getaway and waterfront playground.
