A Fantastic end to our summer!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures don't do this wonderful property and cottage justice. The gardens and property were immaculate, and the inside was equally well maintained and clean. The original wood and fireplace were amazing. The linens were great, the kitchen was equipped with top of the line appliances and was perfectly stocked. The herb garden was an added bonus! The owners were so helpful in getting us settled both on and off the island. The kids loved ringing the dinner bell for each meal. We would start with breakfast in sun filled breakfast room and end our day with a spectacular sunset on the porch. Jumping off the huge dock and watching the freighters go by was another highlight. I could go on and on - Schooner Island is how summers should be spent! Thank you for a wonderful stay. We will be back!

We Couldn't Have Been Happier

We Couldn't Have Been Happier

Schooner Island is everything listed and more! Just a 2 minute ride from Wagoners Marina and you feel like your entering an era gone by. The home is incredibly maintained with everything you need. The friendly Wagoners Marina folk were like family by the end of the week.

The owners have done an amazing job refurbishing the 1922 home to it's original splendor whilst providing all the modern conveniences. With six bedrooms, and three full Jack and Jill baths, the house lends itself well to multiple families. The area is filled with great historical treats like Boldt Castle and Singer Island. And of course there was the everyday fun of watching the cargo ships and mega yachts travel the channel.

As for the property owners, they were extremely accommodating even bringing us a dozen corn on the cob one day!

We highly recommend this home for a river vacation.....after numerous sight-seeing expeditions, it was still our favorite.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
Too good to be true! When we found the listing on-line we didn't believe it. After searching every inch of the website and then talking to the owners everything looked amazing. Then we pulled up to the island....

We vacation a lot but this was a first for our family. The grounds are very well kept, docks, decks, porches all spotless. Then we walked inside. Words can not describe the main house. Kitchen has EVERYTHING you need and more. Bedroom setup is perfect for the 3 families we had. Main living room is HUGE. Weather was so nice I never sat inside. Distance from boat launch is a 2 minute ride. Distance from launch to town (for anything you run out of) 3 minute car ride.

The sights and sounds of the 1000 islands are right in front of you. The kids each kept busy with fishing on the dock, hiking the island and using the canoes. The adults spent every evening hanging on the porch.

We were told "you only need clothes and food". Of course we didn't believe them! They couldn't have everything! They did and more. This is a ONE of a kind place and we most certainly will be coming back.

Owners are great people! Helped us load and unload and offered assistance with everything. You have to see it to believe it, kind of place.

Extraordinary setting!

  • 5 of 5
We did a double take when we pulled up to Schooner Island on our pontoon -- this GIANT house on a private island was where we were staying! We were even more excited once we saw the beautiful, rustic interior, gleaming chef's kitchen, lovely bedrooms and clean bathrooms. Sarah provided everything we could have possibly needed, including helping us with directions to the marina when we got a little lost. The towels, sheets and beach towels are pristine and clean. The kitchen was loaded. High end washer and dryer, two refrigerators/freezers. We had 6 children and 4 adults staying with us, ranging from 1-15 -- all had a blast! There were board games, cards, a toy chest filled with toys, not to mention an island to explore. My son loves pirates and thought the ship's wheel decoration outside that you could actually steer was so cool. For the adults, there is a charming porch to have coffee and watch the sunrise, and a gorgeous wraparound porch with lawn chairs set up to have a glass of wine and watch the sunset over the river.

The hardest part for us was boating to he island and back to shore with all the kids, but it is literally less than a 2-minute boat ride from Wagoner's marina, a small price to pay to have use of an actual private island. We will definitely consider going back next year!
