About Edwina Kinchington
I am an Educator in secondary education in the City of Pittsburgh. I did cancer research for almost 18 years before becoming a teacher. I love the water - it is in my blood. I was a competitive swimmer in my youth and competed in the 1984 and 1988 US Olympic trials. I love swimming in the St. Lawrence. My husband is also in education as professor at the University of Pittsburgh.
Edwina Kinchington purchased this Cottage in 1959
Why Edwina Kinchington chose Alexandria Bay
Campbell's Linden Cove property was purchased by my Mother and her Father in 1959 as a summer vacation spot. My Mother's family were from Alexandria Bay with the Campbell's (my Mother's maiden name) being doctors in the area. My parents were married in Alexandria Bay and they vacationed here in the late 1950's and 1960's. There had been a large victorian home on the property which became too much to maintain. My parents build the present cottage in 1967 shortly after my sister and I were born. My mother loved this property and we vacationed here more in my older life. My own family (husband, 2 children and dogs) have grown to love the river and the property. Unfortunately, my mother died in 2011. We have made many renovations to the cottage with a brand new kitchen, all new windows, patio enclosure room, 60 ft main channel dock and 30 foot boating dock. We want to keep the property in our family but in order to do that we need to help support the upkeep and taxes which is why we are renting. We hope that you grow to love the property as much as we do.
What makes this Cottage unique
We love dogs and our dogs love the river. We want to allow renters to bring their pets so they can all enjoy it. There are 2 large and secure dog runs on the property if needed. The location of this property is prime waterfront on the Saint Lawrence River. You can safely swim, kayak, boat, fish while watching the lakers go by. We are 1 mile up river from Alexandria Bay, 3 miles from the Bridge. You can sit on the dock and watch the spectacular fireworks at Boldt Castle. There is almost 1 acre of land surrounded by a post and rail fence. The water line is truly amazing with a small island with a bridge. This is one of the most beautiful places in the world and my family has a great deal of heritage here.

Beautiful location right on the channel
Very nice cottage on a beautiful property. Good for pet lovers but be aware if anyone in your party is allergic to animals. We had a cold week in october and the single heater in the living room could not warm the cottage. We had to buy a couple of space heaters then it was fine. The septic tank backed up causing bathroom problems but the owner is going to redo the septic system. Beautiful place for a warm summer week.
Again thank you for your stay. Weather can be hit or miss late in the season. Another heater/ac unit is important in the bedroom area and we are sorry if you were cold. There was a small space heater in the linen closet. I’ll be sure to bring it out. Regarding allergies, was this a problem? I do pay my cleaner top dollar especially if there has been a pet stay (the pet fee goes to pay for more rigorous cleaning). I appreciate your feedback and would like to know what you noticed so I can address it in the future. Thank you. Edwina
"Magical" is the word that came up over and over again during our recent stay at this wonderful spot. The outdoor space that surrounds this cottage far exceeds what almost any other rental on the River can provide. As great as the pictures on this listing look, the grounds are even more amazing in person. The owner is extremely easy to work with and clearly takes pride in her home and outdoor amenities and wants to ensure her guests have a great experience during their stay. The cottage is very clean and tidy, with a well stocked kitchen of pots/pans/utensils and panoramic views of the water. My family and I have rented this home for one week for the last 3 years and I hope to return for many more. If I could give this owner and rental 10 stars I would!
Best summer vacation spot EVER!
This gem of a cottage in Alexandria Bay is the ideal spot for a family summer vacation. It is by far the most well-equipped rental property we have ever stayed in. The owners thought of every little detail that would make our stay wonderful and hassle-free. We enjoyed kayaking, fishing, swimming from the dock and just observing the passing boat traffic on the St. Lawrence Seaway. Although surrounded by neighbors, the setting was extremely private.
The owner is extremely attentive and responsive and was in touch with us several times both before and during our stay.
We loved our vacation and look forward to returning.
We have stayed many places on the river but this was our favorite. The camp has everything you need.
It has the best view of the river. Edwinia is very helpful and makes sure you have a great time. My family can’t wait to go back next year. The Reed’s
