Clayton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 7. Master Bedroom 12X14'

Escape to a secluded 900 sq foot waterfront cottage nestled in the 19th century Forsyth Granite Quarry on the North side of Grindstone Island. Located on a 2 acre parcel adjacent to a 15 acre preserve, expect privacy & beautiful wildlife. Grindstone Island is 3 X 7 miles, mixed farm/forest, dozens of miles unpaved roads. There is no bridge access to the Island. Access is by boat or barge.

Deep water 30' dock, 10' diving board, Swim deck, canoe, kayak, New Braunfels smoker/grill, propane grill, bicycles, fire pit. firewood, propane & charcoal included. 12' long new park style picnic table, cedar adirondack chairs, benches, etc.

Large master bedroom (14X12) w/ queen & bunks, small bunk room (8X12), full size pull-out couch. Bedrooms renovated this Winter with knotty pine similar to rest of cottage, we have not had opportunity to add pictures. Fireplace, full bath, fridge, dishwasher, electric range, microwave. After frost dates, there is an outdoor composting toilet (fancy outhouse NOT used in Summer). Full size washer/ dryer. Bathroom in house recently redone, tile, sink, flush toilet, oversize shower.

Walking distance to Dodge Hall Community Center/dance hall, Thurso Methodist Church, and 3/4 mile walk to Potter's Beach. 1/2 mile from 40 acre shoal Muskie fishing grounds. More than 1000 feet of waterfront, impressive views of river & quarry red granite cliffs. We are about 6 miles boat ride from Clayton and 2 miles to Gananoque, Canada.

Expect to see deer, owls, free range cattle, bald eagles, etc. Mink & otter have been seen nearby. Fishing for pike, perch, walleye, and muskie within site of the cottage. Guided fishing excursions can be arranged in advance. Guided hunting services (as well as Island Tours) for deer, turkey, waterfowl can also be arranged (in the appropriate season). We have even had local folk singers entertain at the fire pit - availability variable & must be arrayed in advance. . . Many options to make this your most memorable vacation ever!

Grindstone Island is rustic, free from convenience stores and asphalt. To insure a stress free visit, contact host about stocking food & beverages prior to your arrival. The Island is accessible only by boat, rentals are available at Clayton Marina. GPS & River Charts suggested.

A Captain/Guide is often available & suggested to escort you and/ or your boat to Thurso Bay- Contact host about this service. If you do not have a boat we can likely get you to & from the island as an added service!

For the truly adventurous, we can even arrange to barge your SUV/Jeep or other suitable vehicle to the island!

This particular property is close to most everything 'happening' on Grindstone Island, yet the surrounding woods and quarry provide a buffer against much of the Summer Island bustle. While the beach and the dance hall are a short walk, there is just enough geography that it's generally quiet when you settle in for the night.

About Owner

Our first experience in the Thousand Island was our honeymoon, September 2001. We mutually fell in love with the River; this led to local employment, children, and Grindstone Island.

Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Owner chose Clayton

This particular property is close to most everything 'happening' on Grindstone Island, yet the surrounding woods and quarry provide a buffer against much of the Summer Island bustle. While the beach and the dance hall are a short walk, there is just enough geography that it's generally quiet when you settle in for the night.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage is equipped with a wood stove insert, as when as an out house/ composting toilet that is used during winter months (traditional bathroom during Spring, Summer, Fall). This makes spending a few days on the Island over the Winter an enjoyable adventure!
