Watch the big ships float by so close you can almost touch them. The home is just a few miles to Alexandria Bay and about a mile from the Thousand Islands Bridge and US 81 and 12 miles from downtown Clayton, NY.

The property has three docks with deep, clear and weed-free water. Hardwood flooring throughout the main level. The home is equipped with flat screen LED TVs in 3 bedrooms and the family room. Phone, HD cable TV and wireless internet (WiFi) throughout. There is plenty of parking.

Why Todd and Debbie Martin chose Alexandria Bay

This is an amazing property with outstanding views of the main channel and the Thousand Islands Bridge from the docks. The home is very clean and has been updated so that our guests are comfortable during their stay. Just bring your toothbrush and enjoy. Quality linens and bath towels are provided. We love this area of the St. Lawrence because it's close to Alexandria Bay and Clayton with easy access to Route 81. There are many restaurants nearby and a large grocery store open 24 hours a day only a mile away. This property is in a spectacular location for watching the big boats. It has two boat slips that are about 30 feet long.

What makes this house unique

The property is located in the American Narrows portion of the main channel. The narrowing of the channel allow you to see the giant freighters and boat traffic up close. The property has a large dock with crystal clear, deep blue-green water. Guest can enjoy a camp fires on the lower terrace at the water's edge while watching the sun set.

Super 1000 island place.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the place. We look forward to a future stay. From a boating point of view, you are right in the middle of everything. Launch your boat from the state park and tie up at the dock for the week. Close to both Clayton and Alex Bay, and the super market is just down the road. You are not going to find a better place. Thanks.

Simply spectacular & relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you stand on the deck and absorb the view you become so relaxed and The River is more than spectacular. The house is clean, neat and the perfect size for 10-12 people. No issues at all. Close to A-Bay, Clayton and Canada. Highly recommend and will stay again, and the owners are perfect hosts.

Memorable Vacation at Picture Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

July 2018

Our family enjoyed a wonderful week at this idyllic spot on the St. Lawrence. The house is spotless with an open and airy feel, making it easy for everybody to spread out. The large deck provided us a perfect place for outdoor dining, ship watching, and napping on a comfortable chaise. An added bonus was that part of the dock is shaded, so we were able to get out of the sun while still enjoying the view. Todd, the owner of the house, was great at responding to questions or comments in a timely manner.

We will definitely be back!!

House was exactly as it was presented on the website.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of nine enjoyed our week stay early in July. Everything was provided as described in this beautiful house. Loft bedroom overlooking the dining room was open to downstairs area due to shutters - pretty but not sound proof. Fun to watch ships pass at close range but mosquitoes made evenings around the fire pit difficult. House is close to both Clayton and Alex Bay and bridge to Canada. Would recommend this rental for family groups.

We will ship some Citronella candles up to the home. Thank you again for your feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Todd & Debbie

Thanks for the memories.

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic week with three generations at this great location. Todd was helpful and easy to communicate with during our stay. Highlights of our trip included enjoying water activities, watching the ships in the main channel, gathering around the campfire, golf, visiting the nearby wineries and even a trip to Canada to the casino. We plan on returning next year to enjoy this beautiful home.
