Guided Fishing & Cottage package : Your day begins at 8:00 AM as you are picked up in a 26 foot Cris Craft. Your Captain has all the bait and tackle you will need for a productive day of fishing. At lunchtime you can either bring along a lunch or you can plan for a shore dinner. You may take your lunch ashore or eat right on the boat.

For the shore dinner, you will be taken to a private island where you can relax, play some horseshoes, swim, or fish off the dock, while your dinner is being prepared. A wood fire is started and then your fish will be cleaned. You will enjoy bacon to start you off, and then fresh tossed salad with creamy Thousand Island dressing, salt potatoes, and the tastiest fried fish you'll ever have.

About Paul Smith

My wife and I have been vacationing in the 1000 Islands for years and decided to purchase a Island home. We both in enjoy projects so we took this one on.

Paul Smith purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Paul Smith chose Thousand Islands

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 Vacation

  • 5 of 5

There isn't enough time to accurately reflect how happy we were with our stay.

First, the communication between us and Paul was amazing; it was so great to have questions answered in a timely manner and work out any details during our stay. I had also forgotten 2 chargers and not only did Paul mail back one, he replaced the other they could not locate. How is that for customer service.

The home is beautiful, so beautiful I could stay forever. From the hardwood floors to the classy yet cozy decorating it was amazing. There was everything you could think of that was provided and other than food and clothing, there wasn't much else you needed. The outside was just as amazing with a nice fire pit and plenty of chairs and a small side yard (next time we will bring our corn hole boards) with a horseshoe pit - if you count the back porch, lower deck, sun/screen room and the front deck there are so many areas to relax and enjoy the shade or sun that even with a large group, you aren't on top of one another. The bedrooms are adorable! It is great that there are air conditioners in each bedroom, but I would say, we were there during a hot week and one day was extremely humid - no breeze and the downstairs was unbearably hot - an air conditioner downstairs would be nice for 'emergencies'......but still, no complaints - the rest totally made up for that hot evening! The property was well-maintained and clean. The description is exactly if not more than described! There is no shortage of things to do, from games and movies, satellite to the sirius (we enjoyed this while preparing meals), binoculars to watch for ships, a basket of things to do. No matter what the weather, you cannot be bored at this place.

The bay is beautiful and I totally enjoyed the kayaking and canoeing while the guys fished or cooked. Early morning, early evening, always great.

We brought our own boat and enjoyed many trips up and down the river sightseeing - what beautiful homes and properties. We went to Boldt Castle (a must see) and rode into Alex Bay and Clayton for shopping and lunch. We also hit the Boat Museum.

We didn't see all that we wanted to like the Singer Castle and a few lighthouses, so we hope to return.

We would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives and we would love to come back again! Paul and his wife are gracious enough to share their piece of paradise, and they do everything to ensure you have a wonderful stay.

the perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Smith Cottage was incredible. The cottage itself is beautiful & Has everything you could ever need. We went with four other amazing couples & it was so great. The cottage had all the luxuries of home & the view of a lifetime. Traveling around the river on their houseboat was an added bonus. I would reccomend this beautiful cottage to anyone. Can't wait to return.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This place was so perfect that we didn't want to leave. My husband loves to swim, my son loves to fish, and I love to sit on the deck and read. All of our needs were met in this up today very clean home. We grilled most of the nights that we stayed at Pine Cove cottage and found the kitchen to be very well-stocked. The bedrooms were also clean and comfortable and the air-conditioning came in handy because the week we chose to stay here was very hot. The views of Caprice Island just across the way were absolutely stunning and I couldn't stop taking pictures. We will definitely be returning next year as Pinecove cottage could not have been more perfect.

Awesome week in the 1000 Islands

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week with our family and 2 grandsons at the Smith's beautiful home on the 1000 islands. Everything was perfect and everyone had a great time. Great fishing, tubing, kayaking and just hanging out on the deck or by the fire pit . Thanks Paul for making sure everything went smooth. We'll be back for Sure. Tim Gardner

A piece of paradise!

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is amazing! It felt like we landed in paradise - really!

The cottage itself feels like home away from home, everything is organized and almost everything you think of is there for you, from a popcorn machine to a sewing kit in the bathroom drawer.

We were positively surprised to find the house meticulously maintained and in mint conditions. It is obvious somebody cares about the cottage and its guests. It also encouraged us to treat the cottage in the same manner and take good care of it, as if it was actually ours.

We came with another couple, close friends of ours that came from Israel to celebrate with us our 29th anniversary. We enjoyed our stay tremendously. We have amazing memories from the stay indoors, and especially from the boat rides touring the islands.

Even though we did not meet him in person, we had a great experience with the owner Mr. Smith. We found him to be most flexible and kind, very trustworthy and honest.

We would defiantly like to return once again.

Couldn't be better!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week-long family reunion with our adult children. Everyone loved this house! We have stayed in many vacation rental properties over the years, and have never seen one so well equipped and beautifully maintained! Really amazing. Everything in the house and surrounding property is of the highest quality. Fit for royalty.

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.
