We purchased our family dream and possibly retirement home in January of 2011. Although we would like to stay there 24/7, our careers only permit part-time enjoyment. We are certain that if you spend time here you will share our love of The River as well.
Gary purchased this House in 2011
Why Gary chose Hammond
We have been vacationing in the Thousand Islands region for nearly 30 years. Have enjoyed wonderful family memories of togetherness, fishing, boating, hiking, snorkling, and just plain old relaxing. We love Clayton for its unique restaurants and shops annual boat show and Museum, Alexandria Bay for its shops and restaurants and Pirate's Weekend in August without dealing with major crowds and expense. Wellesley Island across the Thousand Island Bridge is superb for biking, hiking, golfing etc.. We love this location for the sunsets, walks, fishing, swimming safely in 'our' cove, quiet but friendly neighborhood and quiet away from the 'bustle' of Alexandria Bay and Clayton.
What makes this House unique
Beautiful St. Lawrence river views inside (sunroom or living room) or on the wrap-around-deck where we can enjoy morning coffee, sunsets, views of ocean going vessels and wildlife, safe neighborhood for families and children, small protected marina a 5 minute walk away where we can dock our boat, a small cove with swimming and wonderful Chippewa Bay around the corner for excellent fishing, kayaking, paddleboarding etc..

Beautiful river views from spacious and homey house.
We really enjoyed our stay in this well equipped roomy house. The river views and gorgeous sunsets really set this property apart from many other places we have stayed. The location, about 20 minutes north of Alexandria Bay, is very convenient to many state parks and other attractions in the area. We would definitely recommend this property to other couples or families that love the outdoors.
Roomy, clean home with beautiful views of the river
A huge Thank you to Gary. He was accommodating from the very beginning of our first inquiry right up to the end of our visit. The house is very clean and well equipped. We loved spending time on the deck swimming, fishing, and making use of the kayaks. We had a great time and planning to rent again!
The property and location are wonderful!
Clean cottage that overlooks St. Lawrence River. 2017 was the best ever for ships going by. The weather, completely out of everyone's control, kept us inside much of the time, and for the first time in years, I was unable to kayak and enjoy the river on the river. Better luck next year! Patty and Gary are great landlords!
Wonderful Get Away!
The cottage is right on the St. Lawrence River on a quiet alcove in Blind Bay. Watching ships from around the world go by, enjoying wild life in the area, kayaking... what could be better? It is close to Alexandria Bay and Ogdensburg (NY) or Brockville (CA) for restaurants or if you need to shop for food or supplies. About an hour and a half to Ottawa for a great day trip.
Gary and Patty hire someone to clean the cottage between visitors, which I so appreciate. Nothing worse than entering a place for vacation and having to spend hours cleaning up from the last occupants, or ending vacation by having to clean.
Thanks again for a great week - location, view, clean, kayaks!
Thank you for taking time for your kind and thoughtful review. We love sharing our little slice of heaven and every year we strive to improve your experience through upgrades. So happy you had a great vacation.
The views are perfect. Great sunsets & love watching the ships pass by. Fishing was great right in front of cottage as well.
Another great week!
This is our fourth year staying at this cottage in Blind Bay; we go for one week. We like the cottage (it is bright, airy, clean - emphasis on clean!), the kitchen has most anything you need. Linens are provided, the owner has kayaks and a canoe available (along with paddles and life vests). There is plenty of outside seating, and lots of ships going by on the St. Lawrence Seaway. Close to Alexandria Bay, Canada, fishing, boating, swimming. Just love it there! We have already booked our vacation week for next year!
Boat tours departing from Alexandria Bay for tours of Boldt Castle, Millionaires row and many unique island homes.
Singer Castle Tours available from Schemmerhorns marina at nearby Chippewa Bay.
Fishing charters available from Our dock, Blind Bay Marina, Alexandria Bay and nearby Black Lake.
