Like many of our neighbours, we have travelled all over the world, but, after discovering the incomparable Thousand islands, and vacationing in the area for many years, we chose this unique spectacular island as our little piece of paradise.
A visitor said it best; she described the area as 'serene, exciting, peaceful, glorious, breathtaking', and said, 'Boating on this river gives you the ultimate sense of freedom - there is no end in sight, no limitations!'
Friendly Island is, at once, romantic, secluded, and private (with breathtaking views!), offering everything you could want, right on the island, but close enough to access all the worldly sights and activities, restaurants, sports facilities, etc., only a few minutes away.
We have front-row seats, right on our own front deck or dock, to see ocean-going ships, or the fireworks over Boldt Castle, or the pirate invasion during Pirate's Days, or high-powered speedboats during the Poker Run.
Perfect for a romantic getaway, or a fun vacation for several friends, or a wonderful opportunity for family bonding!
Only a couple of minutes from the wonderful offerings on the mainland, yet, we can have our own little world to enjoy - truly, the BEST of all worlds....exclusivity with accessibility!
The air is pure (you will actually notice the difference!), the water crystal clear. Our island offers deep water dockage - no rocks to destroy your boat or propellor.
Feel like royalty, as you survey you own private domain. The sheer beauty defies description. Swim in your own private heated pool (or in the private, protected River swimming area), relax in the hot tub or sauna, de-stress with a wonderful outdoor massage.
The home theater system offers an unbelievable assortment of channels (including recent movies), and the surround-sound makes you feel as if you're right there! Cozy sofas and cushy chairs have been professionally positioned for your comfort and viewing pleasure.
Truly, a refuge from the stresses and strains of everyday life. Return from your island holiday feeling refreshed and alive. (However, should you require a brief, temporary return to reality, to deal with a pressing business matter, or other time-sensitive issue, you can feel secure in the knowledge that our dedicated business center, right in the Main House, provides for all your needs: high speed internet, WiFi, fax machine, photocopier, and printer.)
