RIVER WATER FRONT COTTAGE WITH DOCK OVER LOOKING BOLDT CASTLE

Alexandria Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Private 5 Acre Residence with Panoramic View of the River

This site was originally the location of a Million dollar residence that burned in 1996. The lot was vacant for two years before the owner decided to build a small summer cottage. It has a spacious over-sized deck with a panoramic view over looking Boldt Castle. The deck has several commercial lounge chairs with small tables to host afternoon cocktails or casual gatherings for sunbathing. A propane bbq grill sits at the river entrance to the screened-in porch adjacent to a few round outdoor dining tables that sit 6 people each. The screened-in porch has several pieces of wicker furniture facing the riverfront with a TV and area to dine if not using the deck. Leaving the porch to the cottage through a set of sliding glass door is a kitchen with a full size refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and a full selection of cooking and tableware. The kitchen is open to the adjoining living-room that is sundrenched on three sides with multiple sliding glass doors and the view mimics that from the deck. It includes a tv, two sofas (one sleeper sofa) sitting chairs and coffee tables. The cottage sits on a ledge 30 feet above the St. Lawrence River directly above a private dock that has deep water access. The east end of the dock features a ramp that can be used for kayak's, canoes, and multiple types of personal watercraft. Access to the dock is rugged via a walking path through the natural vegetation and caution is advised to the elderly. More information is available by contacting the owners directly.

  • non smoking only

Outstanding Location!

  • 5 of 5
We greatly enjoyed our stay at the cottage Sept. 5-13. The cottage was clean and comfortable. We especially loved the private location. The views of the river and castle were beautiful. Rick was there when we arrived and made sure that we had his phone number to call anytime, 24/7. We did have to call him a couple of times and his response both times was quick and the issues resolved. We would definitely stay at the cottage again on our next visit to Alexandria Bay.

A wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed from August 16 to 23, 2014. This cottage sits on a small, beautiful, quite private peninsula just minutes from Alexandria Bay and is exactly as described by the owner. The cottage is beautiful, nicely decorated, spacious, with full kitchen and a laundry center that make our daily life easy and comfortable during the stay. The deck is huge with spectacular view of St Lawrence River and the Boldt Castle. You can even see a small Canadian town called Rockport from the deck. The private dock was perfect for our boat and made all our boating activities so easy and enjoyable--- by the way, we even drove our boat to Rockport, Canada and getting there was easy too: there was no custom to go through, all you need is to make a free phone call at the phone booth to the custom and tell them how many people you have and your names and birthdays and you are good to go!

Melissa and Rick are super nice people. Rick greeted us when we arrived and took us to the cottage. The bumpers I had for my boat were a little too small for docking. Rick brought me two large bumpers to make sure our boat was protected. Rick also provides useful info I needed to navigate the boat on the river. They were always there when we needed help.

I highly recommend this cottage if you are planning a vacation in the thousand islands area.

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had an awesome experience staying at the River Water Front Cottage. The view was spetacular for viewing the passing of huge cargo boats and the scenery as well. The property was well maintained and spacious. The cottage was really nice especially on the hotter days because of the central air conditioning. We ate on the huge deck with the provided grille and plenty of seating.
Thank you so much Richard & Melissa for letting us enjoy your Water Front Cottage for a week. Richard was such a pleasure to speak with and comforted us that if we needed anything to not hesitate to get ahold of him.
We will definitley in the future would love to stay again.

Thanks again,
The Gee Family

Weekend get away - Alexandria Bay NY

  • 5 of 5
OMG ... what an awesome place. Ten of us arrived on Aug 3, 2013 and stayed until Tuesday Aug 3, 2013 as part of an extended weekend get away. We loved this cottage. It has a huge deck and you would not believe the excellent view of Boldt Castle (especially when it is lit up at night). Rick & Melissa were so helpful when making all the arrangements for this rental and even supplied me with information so that I could reserve some local activities before we arrived. Pictures are all accurate and the condition of the property was excellent. View of the water was excellent and condition of the dock was also excellent.

Other things to note ... this cottage comes equipped with a washer, dryer, and dish washer.

All ten people in my group plan to rent this cottage again next year ... but for a longer period next time.

Alexandria Bay is a very friendly town who cater to tourists... with lots of entertainment, shopping, and restaurants to choose from.

1000 Island vacation with no view - very unhappy

  • 1 of 5
no view of the water because of the dead trees,other trees& over growth of shrubs. Shrubs around deck and house overgrowen. No swimming at the house.To get to the dock was steep,but was the only clear view of the river.Would not recommend this propery to stay at because there is no view of the river with all of the trees in the way. Photos were accurate in apperance. Not well maintained.Did not see the owners.Picked up keys at there store and the girl there did not know about me picking up the keys.

Owner's Response: I was completely caught off guard by this response. When I called and spoke to my tenant she replied that "everything is ok and she did not need anything". What is most important is that we had some unhappy guests and that is a shame. We are extremely sorry for any inconvenience and will make every effort to correct any deficiencies in the near future.
Upon inspection I could see that some trees needed trimming and one taken down. The cottage was in good to excellent order and is well maintained. We take our guests comments serious and use them as our guide to giving our guests the very best experience possible.

Boldt Castle is a historic castle built at the start of the 19th century. This is a must see structure that is available to preview at the end of each Uncle Sam Boat Tours daily tours. The history of the islands is overwhelming with stories of rich and famous to love and tragedy. Visit the Alexandria Bay Chamber of Commerce for details.

Deep water is located off our dock for a variety of different types of boats. Upstream is Boldt Castle and Alex. Bay while downstream is Goose Bay & Chippewa Bay with historic Jorstadt Castle, 8 miles. Jorstadt Castle is a 28 room, 4 story, 19th century stone castle built by the Bourne Family as a hunting lodge. The castle is now open to the public.

Carnegie Bay sits directly behind the cottage is a medium size inlet that offers warm shallow waters and is extremely protected from the prevailing winds. Carnegie Bay is great for snorkeling, Kayaking and mooring for low draft vessels.
