RENT AN AWESOME COTTAGE DIRECTLY ON THE ST. LAWRENCE RIVER

Clayton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy beautiful sunsets and observe ocean-going freighters while relaxing off of the front deck of this beautiful, quiet, bungalow-style, 1,300 sq ft, two story cottage. Low level light pollution provides for great star-gazing, as the sound of loons and the St. Lawrence lapping on the shore put you gently to sleep each night.

With plenty of room to move around, there's no need to feel cramped or stressed in doors or out. Take long walks. Rent or dock your boat at Cedar Point State Park for the best rates, only one half a mile away by foot or one and a half miles by car.

Visit antique stores, book stores, or great restaurants in nearby downtown Clayton, Cape Vincent, Sackett's Harbor, or Alexandria Bay with boat tours, fishing, go-kart tracks, golfing... you name it.

The owners are four individuals who regularly use the cottage for themselves, as well as use it for rental income. Therefore, we feel that what makes us comfortable and wanting to come back over and over again, are the same things that our guests will also value. We make annual updates to the cottage and property, so those of our guests who have continually rented experience desired improvements each time they return.

We want all our guests to feel as if they have received a good value after having stayed with us.

Andy Hays purchased this cottage in 2008

This home was located right on the St. Lawrence River and was roomy enough to have guests over. The three larger bedrooms weren't cramped as we experienced others' cottages to be and has plenty of closet space. It was also fully and tastefully furnished, but the quiet...so quiet and beautiful sunsets and a sky full of stars. It was so restful that we just couldn't pass it up. We've owned it for six years now and have absolutely no regrets!! Every time we go to the place we can hardly wait until we are there, and after we leave, we can't wait to get back!

There is plenty of room with no need to feel cramped...even on those rainy days.

Sunsets are 'to die for' is what we continually hear from our guests.

Neighbors are friendly and helpful and are not 'nosy.'

Lovely House

  • 5 of 5
Four of us stayed at this house in August. The house is in very good condition and was very clean when we arrived. It is comfortable and had everything we needed. The owners were easy to reach if we had any questions, and even offered suggestions when they knew of events taking place during the time of our visit. The house is in a great location - just far enough away from town to be quiet and not too far as to be inconvenient. The only thing that was missing was an internet connection, but, hey, we were on vacation and it was not needed. We highly recommend staying at the cottage.

Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week in the Thousand Islands. The location of this house is perfect for doing all the area attractions. We went to Canada several times; I highly recommend the Thousand Islands Tower; pick a clear day, there are wonderful views. There is lots to do in Kingston. If you are a gambler, there is a small casino in Gananoque. One trip back we took a ferry which was very fun and I would suggest it. A large ferry (for free!!) goes from Kingston, Ontario, Canada to Wolfe Island. There is a small ferry (about 9 cars!!!) that goes from Wolfe Island to Cape Vincent ($15-$20, depending on the number of people), a short drive from the house. Downtown Clayton had nice little shops (go to River Rat Cheese for sure!!) and there was also shopping in Alexandria Bay; not much really in Cape Vincent. I enjoyed several wineries (Thousand Islands Winery also had beer tasting! :)). I would also recommend the Uncle Sam Boat Tour out of Alexandria Bay; we did the 2-nation tour. It was just the right mix of doing things and relaxing.

The house is exactly has shown in the photos and the sunsets are gorgeous. Everything was clean and very well maintained. The water was crystal clear (and a bit cool :)). I would definitely stay there again.

Superb Cottage and Great Visit

  • 5 of 5
We had a relaxing and most enjoyable stay at Awesome Cottage during August 2012. The place was as represented in every way and is well maintained, tastefully decorated and nicely furnished with plenty of amenities. It is evident that the owners utilize the cottage and recognize and provide those things most of us need or find useful. I was impressed with the sturdy handrail and wide steps leading to and from the water. Views of sunsets are spectulator and watching the shipping go by was relaxing and interesting. Ferry trip to Canada via Cape Vincent and Wolfe Island was easy and fun. Managers were well organized and accessible with the property clean and as advertised. I plan to schedule it on my next trip to the north country and recommend it strongly. Thanks Awesome Cottage LLC!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our third year at this cottage and we have already reserved it for next year. The spacious two story cottage is so comfortable and sparkling clean ! Views of the river and sunsets can't be beat. Our young grandkids were able to wade right into the water. It's quiet and private but just a short drive into Clayton for shopping, restaurants, miniature golf and a big wooden playground. We love it !

An Awesome Week

  • 5 of 5
This was our third time staying at the cottage and had another great week. Property has always been clean and well maintained. Improvements at the cottage, such as the sidewalk, new shower on first floor, and steps/railing to the river, were great. Enjoyed kayaking, fishing, and watching the sunsets. We always hate to leave.
