Charming with conditions
This was a delightful apartment in a lovely area. The rooms were beautifully decorated and immaculate. We rented at the last minute and the owners were prompt with responses even though there were some communication problems which were entirely our fault. My only complaint is the rental agreement we were required to sign. It was full of what we thought were petty conditions such as not placing glasses on furniture without coasters, no drinking red wine, no wet towels on the furniture or floors, closing windows if it rains, locking the door when you leave, strict stipulations on where to park, and not placing anything heavier than 20 pounds on parts of the counter. We were almost afraid to sit down. I understand that the home has been lovingly decorated and furnished and the owners want to keep it in top condition. However, we felt we were treated like second graders with a list of rules from the teacher.
Most of our house rules are as a result of surprising and disappointing experiences we have had with a few other renters. Examples include: damage to antique furniture from moist glasses when coasters weren’t used; red wine spilled on an expensive light colored upholstered couch ruining it; windows left open in the rain with resulting damage to wood floors; wet towels left on antique wood furniture damaging the finish. Unfortunately, not every guest is as knowledgeable and considerate as the rating guests were, so we have house rules to hopefully prevent damage to our property and provide parking guidance to our guests when the main house is rented.

My husband and I have stayed at the Maple Grove Carriage House more than once now. You just couldn't ask for better accommodations! Spacious, open layout, custom kitchen with high end finishes. 1 bedroom and a full, updated bath (even has a washer and dryer!). There is also a sleeper sofa in the living room. We enjoyed sitting on the private and peaceful back deck with a glass of wine. Beautiful views of the St. Lawrence River as well. Given the hazy, hot and humid weather, we REALLY appreciated the central air! Everything was fresh and clean. A big thank you to the owners for providing us with an exceptional getaway!
Relaxing getaway weekend
My husband and I enjoyed a relaxing getaway weekend while staying at the Maple Grove carriage house. Beautifully furnished apartment with modern appliances. Even though the carriage house shares the property with the main house, it was very private and peaceful. Easy access to the waterfront. It is a drive to the attractions of the Thousand Islands but that can be considered a plus, if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of tourist attractions. As it was our first time in the Thousand Islands, the owners were very helpful with suggesting things to do while visiting.
