Beautiful location on the river! Dodge Bay is perfect for wading and swimming. Was relaxing to sit on the deck, look out at the water and watch boats go by. We made a few excursions close by including the Antique Boat museum, winery and distillery. But the comfort of the cottage and waterfront was more than enough to enjoy our vacation. Highly recommended 😊

Great place with a problem which could easily be fixed.

  • 3 of 5

The location of the property is ideal. Close to Cape Vincent proper and not too far away from Clayton. For children who would like to swim, I would think this would be perfect. It has a small screened in porch that overlooks the water in which we spent a great deal of time, again ideal. The beds were comfortable and overall a quiet location. There has been some great upgrades to the cottage. However, the place could have used a good cleaning. Both the bathroom and the kitchen needed a scrubbing which was our first order of business and of course contributed to the three stars instead of five.

Owner's Response: I did scrub very hard the bathroom sink with Clorox. I thought something was wrong with it. I am having Ralph look at it. As far as the kitchen I don’t what they are talking about It was thoroughly scrubbed.

charming river cottage

The cottage was everything the ad said it was. very clean, wonderful view, and very relaxing. The kitchen was well equipped and the counter tops were gorgeous. Had a great time, would recommend renting. Easy access to water for swimming. Also, was nice having the ladder off the dock. Great property !

Comfortable Cottage

Cute & cozy cottage with a fantastic view and great swimming area. The sandy bottom bay in front of the cottage was a nice feature. My family and I had a wonderful time and look forward to going back again.
