ONLY A FEW FALL WEEKENDS IN SEPT/OCT LEFT!

Alexandria Bay House Rental Photos and Description

Welcome to my spacious 3+ bedroom Victorian home in the heart of Alexandria Bay. My home is pet friendly, is around 109 years old and still retains some of its 'vintage' charm. It is available from May through mid October. My home is in a very convenient location. It is easy to enjoy all of the village amenities from the privacy of my centrally located property. Enjoy people watching on the enclosed front porch, or if you prefer, relax in the spacious and private fenced in backyard.

On the first floor, there is a kitchen with all appliances and kitchen necessities. All you need is your food. Additionally, the first floor has ac adjusted to your liking and includes a dining room, living room, lounge, full bathroom and laundry room. Direct TV is available in the kitchen and living room as well as 2 of the bedrooms upstairs. A DVD player and wireless internet are also available to you for added convenience. The sofa in the livingroom also pulls out in to a queen bed if you need additional sleeping arrangements.

On the second floor, there is another full bath with a claw tub/shower. 3 bedrooms are available including 1 queen and 2 full beds. Individual air conditioners are in each bedroom for your comfort. Bed linens,pillows, blankets, and towels are provided.

My home has a large enough driveway to accommodate a number of vehicles including motorcycles, your boat, or your jet ski. The public boat launch is around the corner and EVERYTHING is within easy walking distance. In minutes you can walk to the River, the village beach, Uncle Sam Boat Tours, restaurants, bars, shops and marinas.

This is a great opportunity to 'Getaway' and enjoy the Thousand Islands and all it offers whether you're a family or you combine resources and are 2-3 couples, or a group of friends wanting to share the space vacationing together. This is also home to two goldendoodles, named Ruby and Doogan. They won't be here when you visit, but would welcome any canine friends to hold down the fort for them while they are away. My home is pet friendly. Please let me know if you intend to bring your dog(s) upon your visit.

I am a teacher in the area and live in this house when it is not being rented. This big house is home to me and my two 'Doods', Ruby and Doogan. I used my home as a vacation rental during tourist season for the first time in 2013. It was a great experience so I decided to continue this year.

Heather Lavarnway purchased this house in 2003

For people who are looking for a vacation rental vs a hotel, my home is a great bang for your buck especially if you are traveling with others who help split the cost. The River and the Bay scene are a quick walk. ---very convenient. My home is cozy and welcoming and has plenty of room to relax in. It is also a great option for you if you like to travel with your dog(s).

VACATION ON THE BAY

  • 5 of 5
A perfect vacation, just what my family and I were looking for!. Our accommodations were lovely, it truly felt like "home away from home". Heather was very kind and went well above making our stay enjoyable. How nice to walk into a home with fresh cut flowers, a bottle of wine and bowl of chocolates on the kitchen table. What a grand entrance!!! Our dog enjoyed herself as well. Heather keeps her home very nice, clean, fresh and very welcoming. It's in a prime location. Once you park your car, you really don't need to take it out of the driveway at all. However, if you want to go to a nice place for dinner, it's about a ten minute drive to Clayton, I highly recommend The Clipper. Delicious and GREAT desserts!!! It's worth taking your car out of the driveway. There's lots to do or nothing to do at all if you prefer to have it that way. I would go back in a minute if only I didn't have to report back to work on Monday morning!!! Highly recommend.

MOTHER-DAUGHTER WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
This spot is such a charming, comfortable home and we enjoyed having the opportunity to stay here. We loved being able to walk everywhere and spent most of our time at the house either on the front porch or in the backyard. The owner did everything possible to make our visit pleasant and I'm keeping this place in mind for future trips!

GREAT STAY.

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this property. When we arrived there was a bottle of wine and pretzels with a local dip. Both were delicious. The house was very clean and absolutely charming. She had checked in with us a couple of times before we got there and she had mentioned she had a dog. That was okay with us as our party has 6 dogs between us. The bay and downtown were a 2 minute walk away and the town is very nice. We give this property 5 stars and highly recommend it. Max and Sally B.

EVERYTHING WE NEEDED

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this property. When we arrived the house was very clean. Waiting for us were a bottle of wine and a bag of pretzels with a delicious local dip. As stated, everything was in walking distance. It is a wonderful little town. We had zero problems with the property and Heather had checked in with us a couple times before arriving. She mentioned it was a pet house which didn't bother us as our group has 6 dogs between us. Her puppy could have stayed with us for that matter. We give this property 5 stars and recommend it to anybody.

STAT AT THE BAY

The house was perfect for our needs. you can walk to anything in town. The owner could not have been more accommodating. I felt like we were renting from a friend.

I would highly recommend staying at this home.

Notes:
This house is not situated on the water. However, the River is very close by and the beautiful views are just short walk. It is very convenient to be able to enjoy the scene and night life without having to worry about parking or driving as the walk is short and sweet. The boat ramp is literally around the corner at the end of the block and if you plan on boating, dockage is available in town for a small fee.
