HISTORIC WATERFRONT MANSION

Cape Vincent Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate, 6 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps up to 14)

Maple Grove is a majestic Greek Revival home located on 7 acres of beautifully landscaped property with 700 feet of waterfront on the St. Lawrence River.The home is located in the Broadway Historic District which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It is in the village of Cape Vincent, gateway to the Thousand Islands area of upstate New York. Built in 1838 by Theophilus Peugnet, a distinguished officer in Napoleon's Army, this spacious home (over 4000 square feet) will accommodate a maximum of 14 guests, including children, in 6 bedrooms. (Please see separate apartment also available on property, No. 3480374) The expansive lawn area on the grounds can be tented for large functions such as weddings, receptions, musical concerts, and parties. Maple Grove is the ideal location for exploring both the Canadian and U.S. sides of the famous Thousand Islands Region. Guests may enjoy swimming, sailing, boating, kayaking, bicycling, snorkeling, scuba diving, strolling in our beautiful gardens, walking to nearby Tibbitts Light House, or sitting on the front porch watching the ocean going ships as they pass to and from the Great Lakes.

No-cost 48 hour boat tie up may be available at the village dock and the dock at the State Department of Environmental Conservation Research Station. There is a public boat launch ramp in the village. For those who like to explore, the vehicle ferry to Kingston, Ontario leaves from Cape Vincent. Boat tours of the islands and castles are available from nearby Clayton, Alexandria Bay, and Gananoque, Ontario. Maple Grove is the home of the Chopin International Piano Competition for Young People the second weekend in September.

Maple Grove is located on the mainland. It is not on an island. You will not need a boat as you would for almost all of the islands. You will not have to deal with the weather and logistics problems of being on an island.

WARM AND GRACIOUS HOSPITALITY

  • 5 of 5
We were fortunate to be able to stay a week at Maple Grove. What a beautiful historic house. The history alone is a reason to visit this majestic home built in 1838.

The photos don’t do it justice. The setting for this regal home on the banks of the St. Laurence is so peaceful, the gardens so beautiful.

There are many places to sit and relax either inside the house, outside in various areas of the lawn, a bench on the river bank, or our favorite the front porch with its rocking chairs. Its a perfect place to just sit and watch the ships and boats glide by.

The hosts Bruce and Lynn Taylor are gracious and welcoming. Breakfast included lively conversation about the area and its history, the sights that are a must see, which restaurants to try and where to shop.

We ate breakfast in the large and elegant dining room in the main house. The house is very spacious with various places to sit and relax, the living room, the family room, the screened in porch on the side, or the small deck off the family room

We were able to see all the bedrooms of the main house as well. Each has its special charm. Do not miss the opportunity to visit this scenic spot in Cape Vincent and enjoy the 1000 Islands area.
