THE LODGES AT OAK POINT, ON THE BEAUTIFUL ST. LAWRENCE RIVER!

Hammond Lodge Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, large sleeping loft, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 6 to 8 comfortably

Brand new lodge in the heart of Oak Point, felt by many to be the most family friendly and enjoyable community in the Thousands Islands! Relax on the screened porch while playing a game of Monopoly or enjoying a sunset dinner overlooking the bay. Inside the lodge, enjoy the open living/dining area. Kitchen has full sized appliances and bathroom has full tub/shower. View the majestic St. Lawrence all the way to the lighthouse on Crossover Island from the large 2nd floor sleeping loft. The expanded dock area has plenty of room to sit and enjoy the view, jump in the water, dock your boat, fish, sip your coffee in the morning or a cocktail at happy hour. Take a day trip to many US & Canadian attractions in Alexandria Bay, Clayton, Kingston or Brockville. Museums, historic castles & forts, island parks, great restaurants. Perfect for families, couples, fishermen, hunters, golfers, cyclists. Dock space and canoe rental are available. We look forward to your stay with us!

The Oak Point Community: Oak Point truly is a one of a kind community. As 4th generation Oak Pointers, we can tell you that once you visit, you will return again and again. Kids love all the activities - swimming in the bay, fishing off the dock, visits to the Acorn Community Center for candy & game nights, the 4th of July parade, land & water games and ice cream social. Adults love it for the same reasons! Take a walk around the circle and visit the historic cemetery, swing on the swings at the Acorn, bike through the farm country, buy local produce and baked goods at an Amish farm. Free town boat launch just steps away from the lodges.

On the Water: The earliest Native Americans called this region Manitowana - the Garden of the Great Spirit, and it is a vacationers' dream! Nature and water activities abound - cruise the 1000 islands, kayak in the early morning or evening to get close to nature, sail or windsurf through the whitecaps, go water-skiing or tubing along the coast, jet ski through the seaway channel, watch the Poker Run speedboat races between Kingston and Brockville, start a list of all the international ships plying the channel (they are especially beautiful at night with their deck lights glowing). The Thousands Islands is the world's finest fresh water diving destination - dive the many wrecks in water so clear you can see up to 100'. Or just sit on the dock and dangle your feet in the water!

Special Interests: Fishing - Pike season starts the 1st Sat. in April; Bass & Muskie seasons start the 3rd Sat. in June. Muskie fishing is best in late fall, and ice fishing is great in mid winter! Kids love catching perch, sunfish & rock bass off the docks.

Golfing - nearest course is Langbrook Meadows in Brier Hill; nearby are 3 on Wellesley Island, 3 in Clayton, 2 in Governeur, New York State Park Course in Ogdensburg, Alexandria Bay Municipal Course in Alex Bay.

Hunting - we are open for duck & deer hunting seasons in the Spring/Fall.

Cycling - there is a great off-road, rails-to-trails system along the river, with difficulty levels ranging from simple to challenging.

Diving - there are many dive outfitters in the region who can take you to the numerous popular and interesting wreck sites all up and down the river.

A GREAT SUMMER RETREAT FOR US.

  • 5 of 5
We spent the months of July and August in Pike Cottage at Oak Point Lodges. We were attempting to escape the heat of our out of state year round home and enjoy the River. We had a great view of the little bay and the river traffic. There was nearly always a breeze from the bay. The screened in porch provided a great place to watch the river activities protected from the insects. And it was very relaxing. The sandy beach and easy access to our boat at the dock made the river experience nearly perfect. Our cottage was newly built and designed to take advantage of the breezes and was very convenient. The kitchen was well stocked with microwave, dishwasher, and lots of pots and pans. It was very clean and well maintained. The community at Oak Point was friendly and we made lots of friends in the area. The owners Lisa and Stephen went out of their way to address any needs that we had. We needed to have the internet working reliably and they worked with us immediately upon our arrival to make sure that it worked for us. It bears emphasis that the Lisa and Stephen were there, locally, and went out of their way to make the cottage work for us. The proximity to the town dock was also a plus for us. We could hear the happy sounds of children playing in the water and that is a great summer sound. The cottage was convenient for our family visitors and our granddaughter found ready playmates for her two weeks there. As seasonal renters we enjoyed meeting lots of different people who rented from the other cottages at the Lodges. Lisa made sure that we were aware of the local events and we could participate as much or as little as we wanted. It was nice to be part of a community with such a sense of history. It was everything we wanted it to be. There are lots of activities nearby so if you wanted more to do than use the river for boating, fishing and swimming, you could go golfing, horse back riding, visit the castles nearby on the islands, and attend lots of arts and craft events. All in all it was a wonderful place to spend the summer and we would stay there again. We would encourage vacationers who are looking for a month or a whole summer to give The Lodges a good close look. We highly recommend it.

GREAT SPOT ON THE ST. LAWRENCE

  • 5 of 5
For the last 50 years, we have been staying in the 100-year-old cottages that were the original Oak Point Trading Post. The new owners, Lisa and Steve, have replaced those with new and very upscale ‘lodges’. The kitchens are modern and well stocked, it is all wood inside with cathedral ceilings, great beds, optional linens and they have screened porches!!. It is almost impossible to find new or high-end cottages on the river. So this is a treat.

We had a family reunion (26 of us) there this summer and it was the perfect facility for us. All the cabins open out to a common lawn for all the festivities. Oak Point bay is the only place I know of on the river that has a sandy bottom for swimming. And it is only a couple feet deep off the docks.

Fishing is good all year and boat rentals are available nearby. Mink run along the shores looking for fish, beavers swim in the bay, great-horned owls and osprey nest nearby, turtles sun on rocks everywhere, birding is exceptional – pretty much a natural paradise. Ocean liners travel the river, sunsets are like Key West and Alexandria Bay is a famous place for summer activities including an island castle tour.

The lodges at Oak Point are awesome. I give it 5 stars plus. We will be back.

Owner's Response: Wow - you should be a writer for the Thousand Islands Sun - such a great description of our beloved river and Oak Point! I don't know who had more fun, the adults who kept coming up with fun ideas for family activities, or the kids who were the beneficiaries of that creativity! A nice combination, and a great recipe for wonderful family memories. Thanks for being our guests. Who would have imagined this when we were little kids ourselves, playing together during the summers at Oak Point?!

IT DOESN'T GET BETTER THAN THIS...

It doesn't get better than this...
  • 5 of 5
We loved this place so much last year that we brought several other families with us this year and rented 4 cabins. The kids were in heaven, swimming every day in the crystal clear water with a beautiful sandy bottom. They loved going to Penny Candy night at the store and used the rock garden as a stage for their talent show performances. With fishing charters, castle tours, kayaking and swimming there was plenty to keep us busy. Lisa, the host, knows the area and made some great recommendations. She is nearby and is extremely attentive and accommodating.
Great time was had by all!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Georgia! We loved having your family and friends stay at Oak Point. You were so smart to bring the dress up box - what a creative group of children! And congrats to the gentlemen who did some fantastic fishing with fishing guide Dave Gascon in Alex Bay! Your family are real ambassadors for the Thousand Islands, and it is heartwarming to see you share the River with your friends.

GREAT TIME HAD BY ALL!

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in the Heron Cabin. Friends and family had rented the surrounding cabins. All the families had a blast. The kids (ranging from age of 3-13) loved the dock and swimming in the river. Touring the Thousand Islands by boat was also a favorite. We travelled from Arizona and definitely thought it was worth the trip.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Aline! Your stay really covered the full gamut of weather and activities - I think you were the first to arrive and the last to leave! We so enjoyed seeing all the kids making memories together. The week just seemed to fly by. You are a delightful group of family and friends. It's not always easy to make the time to get away as a group, and I congratulate you on your good judgment and perseverance in making it happen!

WONDERFUL WEEK!

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from a wonderful week at Oak Point! We (self, husband, two 14 yr old boys) stayed in Muskie Lodge and it was spacious, comfortable, clean, and well maintained, just as advertised. This was my first time renting a home off the internet and I found the process to be easy and safe. I had been worried about mosquitoes but there was usually a breeze off the water that kept them away. Lisa (owner) was available nearby if needed. We brought our canoe (they have one, too) and paddled around the little bay and we also rented a power boat for two days of getting further out in the river and fishing. We're not fishermen, but after some tips from our new neighbors, we caught enough bass for two dinners. We also took Uncle Sam boat tour around the islands and visited Boldt castle, well worth the price. We made a fire in the fire pit and roasted marshmallows most nights, and went to a drive-in movie one night. Also spent lazy times reading on the porch, splashing in the water, and watching the wildlife. A great combination of relaxing for the adults and fun for the teens.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us - taking a chance with Internet vacation listings - and thank you for your generosity in writing this review! It was great to see your family really jump in and take advantage of all the Thousand Islands has to offer. I think it would be safe to say no moss grows under the two 14 year old' feet - they were in perpetual motion, having a great time. Our best wishes to you all!

LOON LODGE ON THE ST. LAWRENCE RIVER

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful experience! Lisa, the owner, is most accommodating and the facilities at Loon Lodge are as advertised: new, clean, and comfortable! The location of Loon catches a nice steady breeze from the river. Outside grilles are available (you bring the charcoal).

There is a dock right in front of Loon to dock your boat and swimming with a soft, sandy bottom that goes several hundred feet out making it appropriate for supervised children. We found the community of Oak Point to be very friendly and a great place to relax for newcomers like us. About 15 miles South is Alexandria Bay with lots of shops, places to eat and tours (Uncle Sam's Boat Tours) that take you throughout the scenic1000 Islands. Also, world renowned artist Michael Ringer's gallery is in the town of Alex Bay.

North about 11 miles in Ogdensburg< NY where you can cross into Canada (bring your passport) as well as good grocery shopping, restaurants and (home town hero) the Frederic Remington Museum with many original paintings, bronzes and a complete history of where he grew up.

We have and will continue to recommend the Lodges at Oak Point to our family and friends. Again, if you want a relaxing and enjoyable time give the Lodges at Oak Point strong consideration. PS: Finally, if you MUST be connected electronically...the Lodges at Oak Point provide WI-Fi if needed. If you don’t need the internet connection guess what...you'll relax even more! Enjoy!

We very much appreciate your recommendations to friends and family.

The Lodges at Oak Point are located right on the St. Lawrence River, on Schermerhorn Bay. We are halfway between the towns of Alexandria Bay and Ogdensburg, NY. Alexandria Bay has lots of tourist attractions including wonderful boat tours through Millionaire's Row, under the Thousand Islands Bridge, & to the amazing Boldt Castle on Heart Island. Bill Johnston's Pirate Days are August 10 - 19 this year in Alex Bay - always lots of fun. The Remington Museum is in Ogdensburg and offers many activities for children in addition to their exhibits. In Clayton is the Antique Boat Museum - their world renowned Antique Boat Show is August 1 - 3, 2014. Singer Castle on Dark Island is right outside of Chippewa Bay and can be reached by your boat and shuttle or tour boats - you will love the secret passages built into it!
