WATERFRONT GEM! MODERN,PRIVATE,FAMILY-FRIENDLY HOME WITH BREATHTAKING VIEWS

Alexandria Bay House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms

Breathtaking panoramic views (including Boldt Castle)! Glorious sunrises and sunsets! Exclusive and historic upscale private community of Westminster Park on Wellesley Island, New York, accessible by boat or car. Quiet and serene, yet only 5 minutes to the excitement of Alexandria Bay.

Immaculate, almost-new, spacious modern home. Open concept upscale gourmet kitchen opens onto dining and living rooms with spectacular views of the mighty St. Lawrence River. Huuuuuge bedrooms (with brand new top of the line Simmons Beautyrest mattresses)! Lots of windows and sliding glass doors offer unlimited opportunities to enjoy the magnificent views from indoors or out. Large, full-length upstairs balcony overlooking the river, and large deck in private fenced yard. Private dock space available, upon arrangement. Our very own long, private paved road and acres of green space offer much-valued privacy.

Area attractions and activities include wonderful sightseeing opportunities, including two castles, lighthouses, tours by boat or helicopter or hot air balloon, live theater and music, artists' colony, fine and casual dining, spas (or relax with a private massage, outdoors, on your beautiful property), nightlife, antique shops, charming boutiques, winery tours at your choice of many local wineries, horseback riding, hunting, swimming, scuba diving and snorkeling in crystal clear water (the area is said to offer the finest freshwater scuba diving in the world!), several zoos, fairy-tale playground, whitewater river rafting, go-karts, bumper cars, arcade, manicured golf courses, scenic miniature golf, giant (almost life-size) chess game, boating, jet-skiing, beaches, Nature Center (ranked in the top 5 in the U.S.), hiking trails, world-class fishing (among the top 10 in the US), and more!

Only 30 minutes from Watertown Airport, with service to cities and countries throughout the world.

Another country is practically at your doorstep, only 15 minutes away! (Passport or enhanced driver's license required to enter Canada.) Casino approximately 20 minutes away. Only one of a handful of places on earth with 2 UNESCO designations: World Biosphere Reserve and World Heritage Site, only minutes away.

Or, just relax in your lawnchair, at the river's edge, and gaze upon majestic Boldt Castle. Enjoy world-class fishing (among the top 10 in the US!), right from your own dock! Even the new, well-stocked supermarket, only minutes away from this private enclave, will increase your relaxation time, as your own personal shopper fills your shopping order for you, and delivers it to your car or boat. Truly a throwback to a kinder, gentler time.

We have been vacationing in the incomparable Thousand Islands for many years. The private community of Westminster Park, on Wellesley Island, includes a wonderful group of good, kind, caring neighbors, just like an old-time village! This imparts a wonderful feeling of peace and security. This secluded waterfront property has been on our wish list for years. When this desirable property came up for sale, with scenic River views, lots of green space, an almost-new, modern home, with all the amenities, and an extra-long paved private road, conferring all-too-rare privacy, far, far from the main road, we immediately grabbed it!

Although we have the advantage of being on an island, offering incredible water views all around, it is accessible by bridge, so we can go anywhere by either car or boat. We have the privacy offered by our secluded location, while being just a few minutes away from golf, shopping, restaurants, Nature Center, spas, attractions, etc.

Westminster Park is an exclusive, historic private community, where many families have lived for generations. With our new home, we love the fact that we can have it all: the old-fashioned benefits and feeling of security of a stable, long-established, family-friendly community, with a modern, almost-new, well-equipped home in a scenic setting,.....not to mention the privacy offered by the fenced-in backyard, and the huge area of green space surrounding the home!

And the River, the glorious River.....peaceful and serene, seemingly without end. Ships from all over the world, on their way between The Atlantic Ocean and the Great Lakes. Sitting on the balcony, with your morning coffee, gazing out at this wondrous scene, your eyes transfixed on majestic Boldt Castle. Or being dazzled by the rising and setting of the sun in a glorious blaze of color.

We feel truly blessed to have been given the opportunity to enjoy the unique benefits of this special home.

Great place for the 4th of July!

  • 5 of 5
Owner was exceptional when it came to accommodating us. Whether it be making sure the lawn guy wasn't going to disrupt us or if the place needed another air conditioner, she was there to help. Very helpful and knowledgeable of the area, very detailed emails with places to shop, golf, and things to do. Spent the 4th of July amongst the very friendly neighbors, watching the fireworks over the castle. Would be an awesome place to bring jet skis or boat.

FANTASTIC FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed for a week this summer and loved it. It is quiet and peaceful but close enough to both Alexandria Bay and Clayton that you don’t feel isolated. We fished off the dock all week and at night relaxed on the deck or in the house. There is a nice winery not too far away. There is a great yard with enough room that our children were able to run around and play a few good games of football. The house is clean and very comfortable. There is everything you need to cook a great meal. The views from the living room are breathtaking. Sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine watching the sunset over the castle is the perfect way to end a great day on the water. We are looking forward to our trip in August this year. Great for families!

Owner's Response: I'm glad this family loved our place as much as we loved them! The large rooms and multi-acre property - far from the road, with lots of room to run and play - gave everyone their space, with that extra feeling of safety and security. The perfect, private location for family bonding! I am thrilled they will be coming back this summer for another fabulous holiday!
