Year Purchased: 1987
About the owner: The Mulder family has a long history with the Thousand Islands. Cindy Mulder was related to the owners of the Hutchinson Boat Works in Alexandria Bay. Hutchinson Boats are beautiful examples of Antique Wooden Boats from the heyday of wood boat building. Mart and Cindy honeymooned in the 1000 Islands and they purchased the cottage because of their love of the river in 1987. When they viewed the cottage for the first time Martien stopped at the top of the stairs from the dock. He looked out over amazing river view and said 'I don't care what the cottage looks like, this is the place!' Fortunately the cottage was lovely also and it is the favorite family vacation spot. Martien loves all things related to boats and takes great pride in the condition of the waterfront. After becoming a widower Martien remarried Susan in 2009. Together they made a wooden double kayak which you can see on the dock. We hope your family loves our 'Little Slice of Heaven' as much as we do.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Once you park your car and take your boat to the island, you realize that you have left the hustle and bustle of your everyday life on shore. The river is a place to relax and recharge yourself. Your day can flow with the pace of the sun and the water. River time is depicted as a clock with no hands! The breezes from Lake Ontario will cool even the hottest summer day. Play on the water during the day and then enjoy a good book in the evening. There is plenty to do nearby, but the lure of the island is strong also.
