About the Property
Small Island with 2 Living Spaces. Sleeps 8. Views.!! Available July - Aug.
Tremolo is a perfect place for family and/or groups.
You will need a boat....obviously. If you already have one, the best thing to do is put in at Sand Lake Marine, run by the Glover family. They are super friendly and will let you park one car for free, the other car, $30.00 a week. They have petrol, oil and they run a small shop for incidentals.
If you need to rent a boat, here are a couple of Boat Rental Establishments to call: Westport Village Rental, Big Rideau Lake Boat Rentals, Scotty's and Coolbreeze in Westport. Scotty's will deliver boats to the location you are putting in. There is also a campground on Sand Lake called Battam's. They have small outboard motor boats for rent. They aren't powerful boats but they do the job of getting around. You can also call one of the Boat Rental establishments and ask about seasonal rates and special deals. The longer you rent, the better the deal. Once you have set up the rental and can tell us where you will be putting in, we will provide a map for getting to the island. It is VERY easy. The Glover's can also provide directions to the island. Lots of folks that live up there year round are friendly and always willing to help.
Please contact us for payment options.
Before making a payment, always call the owner at the number listed on our website to make sure your payment instructions are accurate.

Tremolo Island is situated in the beautiful Rideau Lakes Region of Ontario, a vacation destination for travelers from all over the world. You can get to Ottawa, the stunning capital of Ontario, by boat. The Rideau is a series of locks that connect lakes, each one unique with its own 'personality'. Sand Lake is one of the smallest of the lakes with lovely soft water and a primarily sandy bottom. Great for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and exploring.
Year Purchased: 1970
About the owner: I am Carol, the oldest of 6 six sisters, one of the owners of Tremolo Island. When our mother passed away in 2008, we inherited Tremolo Island. It was previously called Meow Island.....our mother loved cats. My sisters and I have been going up to the island since we were kids, nigh on 30 years now. I live in New Hampshire so I am the closest to the island and can get there more often than my sisters so I share the property management with my sister, Katie. We rendezvous on Tremolo every chance we get. Since I am a Special Educator, I have particular times when I can make the relatively short trip up. Tremolo Island is a magical place, one that lets all cares and worries slip away for a time. We feel extremely lucky to be able to offer it to others. It isn't very far from New York City (we grew up in Fort Lee, New Jersey by the way) or Boston. Once you are on the island, a cold glass of wine in your hand, the water and the loons singing to you, believe me, you will know what true peace and tranquility feel like.
Why the Owner Chose Elgin, ON, Canada:
Our parents found Tremolo Island on a trip to the Thousand Island region. At first we all slept in tents or on the small houseboat our parents owned. Over time, they decided to move to Canada permanently and to build a home. Our mother designed the house and local tradesmen built it. My sisters and I have been going up to the island since we were young, very young. The memories live on and so does our absolute love of Tremolo.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Tremolo Island is an island.....for a week or two or more, it can be YOUR island. Whether you are there by yourself (which I was last year for over a month! Heaven!) or you are there with your family, (including your dogs) being on an island is unique. It is peaceful and exciting at the same time. Your experience of time will alter. You will be on Tremolo time. Everything slows down; sitting and watching the lake as it shifts from morning to afternoon to evening will become a full-time activity. You will want and need nothing more.
