About Paul Bernard Smith II 315 600 8725
I grew up in Baldwinsville NY and graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology in Electrical Engineering. Over the past 25 years, I have enjoyed supporting clients in providing technical hardware and software solution to assist my customers to design products in the Computer, Medical, Miltary and many other industries. My experience and passion to solve technical issues while exceeding my customer expectations provided me the ability to upgrade, repair and manage Pine Cove Cottage and Bald Eagle Cottage over the past 10 years. My wife and I decided to purchase a second home in the 1000 Islands as another project since we close to putting the finishing touches on Pine Cove Cottage.
Paul Bernard Smith II 315 600 8725 purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Paul Bernard Smith II 315 600 8725 chose Town of Alexandria
My Wife and I have been looking for a vacation home for 20 years in the Islands. We found this old fishing cottage that had lots of potential with a great location with excellent views in 2008. The cottage has been a huge project but the end result has been well worth the effort.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage has excellent views of the surrounding Islands, sunrise, sunsets & shipping channel. The location provides private setting that is very close to the town of Alexandria Bay, NY. The private cove offers protection from rough water for our large dock and great swimming.

Amazing views and very comfortable accommodations!
Your house was so amazing! Had everything we could have ever needed! We all slept so very comfortable in the beds! We were able to fish all day and all 6 of us were able to come home and take hot showers! Our son loved watching his dad fish on the boat out front in the evening with your binoculars you are so generous to offer your guests to use! You have every kitchen utensil possible available even down to an egg slicer lol! Masons favorite chair to watch his cartoons was over by the tv in that corner! He loved seeing the geese on the rocks out that window! We all loved seeing the endless amount of ships go slowly by our front! Your dining room table sat us all comfortably for us all to sit and eat dinner together with our friends! We were very grateful for your welcome gift of tasty popcorn samples and samples from the local distillery in Clayton! We had an amazing time and we were very happy to share it with or friends and our son in your Beautifully kept Pine Cove Cottage! We hope to come back soon and do it all over again! We had a very great time!
We really enjoyed our stay. The house is very nice and the location is phenomenal. Paul and Melody were excellent to deal with and addressed any question or concern that we had quickly. Fishing was great and there were so many good locations to fish very close to the house, including right off the docks. Everyone in our group is interested in returning for another week. Thanks for the memories.
Best vacation ever
Pine Cove Cottage is the perfect 1000 Island getaway. Everything in the house is first class, well equipped and clean. Combine the views of THE RIVER with the excellent weather we
experienced, and our stay was perfect in every respect. The owner was professional and easy to deal with. We rented the pontoon boat and the small fishing boat and both made our stay more fun for everybody.
We would come back in a nanosecond!
Cottage was well furnished with quality furniture and lacked nothing
This was probably the nicest rental we have ever had. It lived up to our expectations then some. Gorgeous views of the river yet in a private setting. Property manager (Melody) was very attentive and fun to be around. Owner is obviously very particular and the property shows it. Would return in a heart beat.

This island cottage was the perfect place to host our vacation for our blended family of 8. The fishing, swimming and boating were great!! Plenty of room for all to spread out and yet come together for meals prepared in the well equipped kitchen and spacious dining room table. Enough hot water for our whole crew and the outdoor hot and cold running water shower was amazing! Bird watchers spotted osprey, cormorants, loons and wrens and the sightings of the Big Ships were always a real crowd pleaser. Owner Paul and caretaker Melody answered all our questions and needs. If you are looking for an island getaway with plenty of privacy, great views and comfortable accommodations, Pine Cove is for you.
Fantastic property--even better than the photos
Two families spent one week in Pine Cove Cottage in July. The property was excellent. It is even better than the photos would make you believe. The cottage is very large, has several excellent outdoor sitting and relaxing locations. The dockage is protected and plentiful. We were able to easily dock our boat and three jet skis. The kitchen is modern and very large. There are wall mounted air conditioners in the bedrooms to cool the sleeping areas on the warmer nights.
Paul's follow up was excellent. He accompanied us to the property and showed us around and was available via phone with any questions. He promptly returned our security deposit.
The views of the channel are great. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the freighters. Sunset views were beautiful. We parked and launched our toys from Goose Bay and this worked out very well. Going to the dump was a bit of a hassle but we understand that the island is carry in and carry out.
The only negative would be the lack of drinking water in the home. The water supply is the river/bay and the water is not potable. We did not know this until a couple of weeks before our arrival. Paul left us with a case of bottled water to start us off. We brought additional water as well as a camping-style water filter that made the river water safe. It wasn't a big deal, but was not anticipated when we reserved. We were also asked to do only one load of laundry during our week there. This was a bit of a reach with eight people in the four bedroom home.
The few minor negatives did not detract from my giving this five stars. The home was comfortable, very nice and easily accessed. It is a great home base to visit the 1000 Island region. The waters around the home are filled with fish. Our children literally caught fish on 75% of their casts. Very nice and very relaxing week. We highly recommend Pine Cove Cottage.
Relax in comfort and style with a first floor that includes an open great room that overlooks the St. Lawrence River. After a day on the water, prepare your catch of the day in a beautifully appointed kitchen that includes hickory cabinets and all the modern kitchen appliances you’ll need to prepare a memorable meal. A full dinning room with views of Goose Bay is the perfect spot to enjoy dinner with family and friends. Afterwards, plan the next days’ adventure on one of the two patios or in the comfort of the living room. A half bath rounds out the first floor amenities. When it’s time to call it a night, there’s plenty of space for rest and privacy. The second floor of the cottage has 4 bedrooms and two full baths. The master bedroom has a spectacular view of Goose Bay, the main shipping channel, and the very private cove. But don’t worry if you didn’t get the master bedroom, all bedrooms have a view of the water.
