About Susan Andersen
We are John and Susan Andersen. We are both "northerners" but live in Virginia. We have 3 adult children and one grandchild, a wonderful Golden Retriever, and a couple of cats.
Susan Andersen purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Susan Andersen chose Thousand Island Park
Our hearts are in this property. John's family has been in T.I.Park since 1931. His dad lives in a cottage on Union St. Our house was lovingly maintained by the Shiro family for about 30 years before we purchased it.
What makes this Cottage unique
We love imagining the history of the house. Most of the windows and doors are original, as are the wide-plank floors. This is one of the few houses in the community that has year-round living, with its own artesian well, insulation, and kerosene heater. During the summer season, the house is connected to county water and sewer.

Great space for our family reunion! Spacious screened porch and dining rooms.
We enjoyed having access to bicycles, board games and croquet. (Haven’t played since I was a child!). Within walking distance of the playground, library tennis courts and pier. Perfect sleeping accommodations for our family. Memorable reunion.
Truly a Peaceful Escape
I don't count any more how many years we've been renting a cottage in TIP. What I can report is that we've rented True North for the past 2 years and don't even think twice about renting a different cottage. The best part about this cottage is the room to spread out, all the little niches which are perfect for each family member and the first floor bedroom and bath for Grandma. The wrap-around porch is our favorite area of this cottage and where we spend the majority of our time. The cottage is located in a peaceful, spacious area but so close for my boys to hop on their bikes and go to the Guzzle, playground, library and dock. True North is truly a welcoming escape. We look forward to our visit each year.
very good fit for our family
We like especially the roomy porch area and the large dining room and table that makes it nice for our family to gather for a meal. Bedrooms are large and comfortable. Location in the Park is handy. All in all, a very nice week in the 1000 Islands.
Charming, comfortable and welcoming!
This is a lovely cottage with so much charm and a wonderful, huge screened-in porch where you can enjoy your days and evenings. It is loaded with TLC. The kitchen is full of anything you could need and the dining room table is ready for a very large group to enjoy. Lots of games are available for everyone and a large grassy yard was great for our grandchildren. Several sleeping porches are available for warm nights. We enjoyed this home in July, 2018 and would love to stay there again if we travel back to TI Park. I can't say enough about how gracious and helpful the owners were. They made sure we were comfortable and gave us many helpful tips for our first visit. Many thanks to the owners for sharing their wonderful home.
It was our pleasure having you as guests. You are the epitome of delightful renters!
True North is a gem
As a family, we've rented at TI Park for 10 years. We've been in 4 different cottages. We have nice memories and things to say about all of them, but our experience at True North this week was exceptional. The cottage is so well cared for. The lay out of big porch, large dining room and table, comfortable living room with well-functioning tv's, big bedrooms and great location suited us to a tee. We very much would like to return next year and do it all over again.
Perfect cottage for the extended family
My extended family and I have been vacationing in TIP for the last 5 years. This is the first time that we rented a cottage that was big enough to accommodate us and all the activities we enjoyed doing. Not only was the cottage big enough but was clean, well equipped and in the perfect location. We are already looking to next summer vacation and getting ready to book this cottage again. The owners are very prompt with any questions you may have.
