About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

We invite you to come stay at our classic St.Lawrence River cottage. This private property includes a main cottage that sleeps 4 comfortably and a boathouse (11'x30') with swim dock. The main cottage has a large screened-in porch where you and your family can see Boldt Castle and watch the ships slide by. The cottage is a 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath and includes a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, living room with a flat screen TV, DVD player, and Wifi internet access. Our guesthouse (sleeps 2) and boathouse are available if needed (for additional fees) and our swim dock is a great place to enjoy the refreshing river waters. Make sure to take advantage of the great freshwater fishing in the area! We have caught multiple 14+ inch Bass right from our boathouse dock! Additionally, we are only approx 2 miles from downtown Alexandria Bay. This resort river village has restaurants, shops, bars, and scenic boat tour opportunities. The grocery store, drug store and gas stations are only 2 miles from the house as well. If you want to venture off of the property for the day we are only a few miles from the 1000 Islands Bridge that goes over to Canada (bring your passports for easy entry). You can also take a scenic boat tour of the Thousand Islands and visit Boldt Castle or Singer Castle to get a sense of the beautiful natural surroundings and rich history that exists in this part of the country. Golf and tennis are nearby and jet skis and kayaks are available in town to rent as well.
One thing is for sure, if you choose to stay at our cottage, you will create summer memories that will last forever. We know that you will love it as much as we do!!!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The beauty and value of this property lies in it's natural surroundings. This cottage sits on the outstanding St Lawrence and has some of the best views on the river. The sunsets from the porch are spectacular almost every evening. The swimming and fishing from the dock are always a favorite on a summer's day. The property has been in our family since the 1940s and is a classic river cottage (quirks and all)! Whether sitting outside in the sun or shade taking in the views, swimming and fishing from the dock, escaping to the porch for an afternoon nap or sipping a cocktail and watching the sunset, you can't miss with this spot for your vacation on one of the country's most beautiful rivers. Great opportunity to slow down and enjoy the beautiful surroundings!!
