Wellesley Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 13)

This gorgeous six bedroom cottage is in Westminster Park on Wellesley Island in the Thousand Islands. As one of the larger islands, Wellesley Island is accessible by car.

The house is on one acre, has six bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two large living rooms and an enormous (about 50 feet long) beautiful screened-in porch, which also wraps around the side of the house. The house overlooks the water and is across from Boldt Castle (see photo). There is a small beach in front of the house, a boat house, and dock. The property is in a bay and therefore is great for swimming, fishing, and boating. Alexandria Bay is on the other side of Boldt Castle and an easy trip (five to ten minutes by boat or 15-20 minutes by car).

The kitchen and one bathroom have been significantly upgraded recently. The entire house has also been rewired for safety and convenience.

The house has six bedrooms: One bedroom has a queen, one has a full, one has a king (which could be divided into two singles), two bedrooms each have two single beds in them; and one bedroom has three single beds. Around the corner on the 50-foot long porch is another full sized bed.

The house is also about one mile from the TI Country Club, a beautiful club with 36 holes of great golf, a restaurant, a pool, tennis courts and a reputation for 1000 Islands hospitality that goes back over a hundred years.

PLEASE NOTE THAT I HAVE NEVER AND WILL NEVER RENT THIS HOUSE THROUGH CRAIGSLIST. DON'T BE SCAMMED!

Wonderful Waterfront Cottage with old school feel!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this cottage over a long weekend in October. It was perfect. This cottage is a step back in time to what a cottage should be. We knew we were not in a city house. The large wrap around porch with the swinging seat was perfect to enjoy the view of the boats going by and even the sunrise. We enjoyed the roaring fire in the big stone fireplace and kids enjoyed fishing for weeds off the dock! The road in was rich in the colors of fall and often shared with deer or rafters of wild turkeys. The fall nights were cool... but there are a few heaters in the cottage ! It just added to the experience. Kitchen is nicely modernized. Remember this is off season so restaurants on the island were closed !

Cant wait to go back! Randy was great to deal with and very responsive.

Lovely charming home

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a wonderful long weekend with my parents and some extended family and I must say, even though this home is not as modern as a lot of vacation rentals, it was perfect! Completely complimented the charm and feeling of the surrounding area and castle just across the river. A true like home away from home experience. We can't wait to go back! Just a little side note, the water in the downstairs bathroom is touchy and gets very hot.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family has rented this house for multiple years. It's perfect! The view is beautiful and this rustic house has all the charm imaginable.

In response to one review, the entire electrical system in the house was replaced and upgraded. The kitchen and one bathroom have been gutted and redone (although I thought the old kitchen was quite charming, the newer one does have all of the modern day conveniences and is beautiful).

This place is simply perfect for our family!

Lovely View But Old-fashioned Home

  • 3 of 5

We agree there is a stellar view of the water to be enjoyed from this vintage home's wraparound porch. But to earn a five star rating, it's our renters' opinion that more up-to-date conveniences should be offered in a vacation house at this price level: a modernized kitchen with improved electrical capacity; new standard fixtures (toilets and showers) in both bathrooms; more comfortable indoor furniture; a brighter decor; and improved lighting throughout. The responsive owner/manager has indicated that major improvements and new furniture purchases are on the horizon, so we recommend you confirm the status these plans prior to booking, if any of these issues are of concern to you.
