About Ian Coristine and Lyne Roberge
Now a passionate Islander, I discovered the Thousand Islands on a random flight in my floatplane in 1992. That flight changed my life. Trying to convey the beauty of the place to friends in Montreal, I began taking aerial pictures and they evolved into a new career, five printed books and one interactive eBook. Under Albums, Jones Creek area shows the immediate vicinity of the cottage.
Ian Coristine and Lyne Roberge purchased this Cottage in 2003
Why Ian Coristine and Lyne Roberge chose Front of Yonge
I purchased it to provide an access point to the island as well as winter accommodation.

A Most Relaxing Vacation
We spent a week at Ian and Lyne's cottage at the end of August and had a great time. The cottage was perfectly situated, waterfront with beautiful views yet close to the road to major towns close by. It was very quiet and relaxing. The area is among the best vacation spots we have been to, with a lot of attractions and excitement yet not crowded at all. Ian and Lyne were both very gracious and welcoming hosts and we had everything we needed at the cottage. We were very happy to have chosen their cottage for our vacation.
Thank you for visiting us this summer. We enjoyed meeting you all.

Thousand islands getaway
This property is ideally located to explore all the treasures that the 1000 islands and Kingston area have to offer.
Ian and Lyne are exceptional hosts and their property offers relaxation and exploration all wrapped into one. It felt like home.
Thank you so much for your review. It was a pleasure to have you at our cottage.
Front of Yonge Review
The property was just as described. Clean and comfortable for our family of 5 with all the amenities we were looking for. Great views, water access, and conveniently located to attractions/conveniences. Peaceful setting with lots of wildlife to observe. Ian and Lyn were terrific hosts. They provided great suggestions of things to do in the surrounding area and were readily accessible via email for questions. Would recommend this property to family/friends wanting to visit the 1000 Islands.
Thank you Rachel. It was nice to have you at our cottage.
Location and views cannot be beat. House was very comfortable for the two of us. Very clean and Lyne and Ian were great to work with. Access to a canoe was a big plus, we saw so much wildlife during our stay, it was incredible. We do plan to come back.
Thank you so much Carol and Ken for visiting us! You are welcome back anytime!
We had a wonderful time!
Gorgeous views from the kitchen and living room. The cottage is well equipped. Beds are comfortable. We had a cold start to our week and the fireplace worked well to warm us up.The last few days were very hot. We stayed cool with the fans and the cottage was comfortable inside. Beautiful pictures of Ian's photography cover the walls and we enjoyed reading his books! There is plenty of privacy as the neighbors are quite a distance from the cottage. Lyne and Ian the owners are very helpful and friendly! We visited Brockville,Perth and Gananoquey which were lovely towns. We found some great restaurants to have dinner and lunch at. We also watched movies in the evening on the 55 inch TV! We highly recommend this beautiful cottage to rent!
Thank you so much for your visit and taking excellent care of our little cottage. We were great guests!
