Overview

Alexandria Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

We invite you to come stay at our classic St.Lawrence River cottage. This private property includes a main cottage that sleeps 4 comfortably and a boathouse (11'x30') with swim dock. The main cottage has a large screened-in porch where you and your family can see Boldt Castle and watch the ships slide by. The cottage is a 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath and includes a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, living room with a flat screen TV, DVD player, and Wifi internet access. Our guesthouse (sleeps 2) and boathouse are available if needed (for additional fees) and our swim dock is a great place to enjoy the refreshing river waters. Make sure to take advantage of the great freshwater fishing in the area! We have caught multiple 14+ inch Bass right from our boathouse dock! Additionally, we are only approx 2 miles from downtown Alexandria Bay. This resort river village has restaurants, shops, bars, and scenic boat tour opportunities. The grocery store, drug store and gas stations are only 2 miles from the house as well. If you want to venture off of the property for the day we are only a few miles from the 1000 Islands Bridge that goes over to Canada (bring your passports for easy entry). You can also take a scenic boat tour of the Thousand Islands and visit Boldt Castle or Singer Castle to get a sense of the beautiful natural surroundings and rich history that exists in this part of the country. Golf and tennis are nearby and jet skis and kayaks are available in town to rent as well.

One thing is for sure, if you choose to stay at our cottage, you will create summer memories that will last forever. We know that you will love it as much as we do!!!

What makes this cottage unique

The beauty and value of this property lies in it's natural surroundings. This cottage sits on the outstanding St Lawrence and has some of the best views on the river. The sunsets from the porch are spectacular almost every evening. The swimming and fishing from the dock are always a favorite on a summer's day.

The property has been in our family since the 1940s and is a classic river cottage (quirks and all)! Whether sitting outside in the sun or shade taking in the views, swimming and fishing from the dock, escaping to the porch for an afternoon nap or sipping a cocktail and watching the sunset, you can't miss with this spot for your vacation on one of the country's most beautiful rivers. Great opportunity to slow down and enjoy the beautiful surroundings!!

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property for 4th of July week, 2014. It was perfect because I was able to put my 82 year old father on the screen porch to watch the ships go by - he enjoyed that. The rest of us spent most of our time down at the boathouse, swimming off the dock.There was space to park our motor boat inside, and we also had 2 kayaks and 1 canoe.

You cannot see the boathouse or dock from the main house, so if you have kids, you'll have to make sure an adult is down there supervising the water sports. But putting the boathouse on the side meant that you get a clear, unobstructed view of the river from the porch.

The guest house is really quite nice - dated, a bit like the 60's, but it's got a full kitchen with a small table, a couch, and then a small bathroom and a small bedroom with 2 single beds.

We were there to watch the 4th of july fireworks over Boldt castle-- which you can see from the porch or the dock. It was a perfect evening!

We were there with my parents, and 2 teenagers, and we had a 6 and 9 year old come to visit - all age groups had a great time. We never saw Walter the fish, but we saw loons, and a little mink that lives in the rocks near the boathouse. Also, on one of the islands is a Great blue heron Rookery - we motored over there and counted over 12 nests!
