About Judy Nguon

I grew up vacationing with my family in 1000 Islands ever since I was a little girl. Looking back it's been at least 25 years! We vacationed on this particular Island frequently and I have many fond memories. One of my memories as a little girl was going to "The Candy Lady's" house. I'd look forward to walking around the Island and going to the little library and passing by The Candy Lady's house on the way. Every time we passed by, she'd be near her door and she'd come out and give us cute, little pieces of candy. Those hard strawberry candies with the filling...I remember those. It was just a nice gesture and a warm feeling. I loved it along with many other things. Fishing with my family and cousins, having BBQ's, looking at the stars in that amazing sky and just hearing the sound of the calm water.

It has only led me here...The Candy Lady's house fell into my lap where I was able to purchase it and I am so grateful to have a piece of my childhood with me for a long time now. I hope you make memories with your family on these trips and take the time to enjoy the beauty of this world! Enjoy your stay!

Car: not necessary

Grenell Island is a very small, quaint, cozy island. A very nice getaway if you literally want to get away from all the hustle and bustle of life! There are no roads on the island. You WILL NEED a boat to get to and from. Closest island with restaurants, shops and grocery store is in Clayton which is about 15-20 mins away by boat. Beautiful riverfront views of the St. Lawrence River with great night life at Alexandria Bay!

Local Marina's to look into are:

Clayton Marina- (315) 686-3378 Clayton, NY
