This family cottage was built in the late 1800's with lots of historic charm but has many upgrades such as a new roof, fresh paint, new carpeting, modern appliances and the most beautiful 40-foot screened in porch overlooking the St. Lawrence River and Boldt Castle. One end of the porch is off the kitchen and can seat up to 12 people, the other end of the porch has a nice sitting area for reading or enjoying the views. We also have a daybed on the porch for sleeping. We have an inside dining room with table to accommodate 8 people with views of the water. The lot is very private and is surrounded by mature trees. Down at the water there is a boathouse with docks on both sides. There is a covered sitting area on top of the boathouse for those who wish to enjoy the views while having your morning coffee or evening cocktails.
The house is also about 1 mile from the Thousand Island Country Club, a beautiful club with 36 holes of golf, a restaurant, a pool, tennis courts and a reputation for 1,000 Islands hospitality that goes back over 100 years. The club can be reached by either car or boat. The club has both dining and golf on the water.
At the other end of Wellesley Island, approx. 7 miles, there is a quaint community called T.I Park. The community has a large playground, library, ice cream parlor, outdoor movie theatre, shopping and restaurant.
