About The Owner

We are a family of four from Rochester, NY

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2002

Why The Owner chose Thousand Islands

As a child, my family vacationed in the 1000 Islands region. When I was about 13 or 14, my parents bought a cottage in Thousand Island Park. My siblings and I LOVED it. My wife and I decided that we wanted our kids to be able to enjoy this place as much as I we purchased this cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

My family enjoys the water. Not only do we enjoy being in it and on it, but we love to look at it. This cottage affords you the ability to do all of them. We spend most of our days boating, fishing, and swimming. If the kids aren't doing that, they are up at the playground with all of the other kids from the Park. At night, we often enjoy the outdoor movie theater. The kids get a charge out of that

Wonderful, relaxing experience!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the "Two Doors Down" cottage immensely. Our 11-year old daughter was able to go unescorted to the playground, library, and, of course, The Guzzle (Ice Cream, candy, arcade, etc.) and was able to have a friend stay for a few days. The home furnishings were comfortable and the kitchen was our "gathering place" with the island/counter and high stools. Our only regret was that our week ended too quickly!!

Lovely Island Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay at this cottage. We were amazed at the activities for children. The playground was a 2 minute walk from the door to the left. The St. Lawrence River a 2 minute walk to the right. The family enjoyed jumping into the river from the dock at the Pavilion and also the small beach at the cove. Multiple activities are available a short drive away in Clayton or Alex Bay. The cottage was roomy, beds were comfortable and very clean. A delightful area and we loved the Victorian homes and small streets.

Family wedding at the Park

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property so we could attend a family wedding at the gazebo on the green. The cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and the location was ideal! The two bathrooms were well equipped as was the kitchen. The flow of the house was perfect for gatherings and for the bridesmaids preparations. The cottage interior will be remembered forever in all the wedding photos! My favorite spaces were the upper and lower front porches...great spots to view the river and have a quiet early morning cup of coffee. Looking forward to our next trip to TIP!

Pleasantly surprised

  • 5 of 5

I have rented many cottages in TI park over the years and this one was the best. Very Clean with new appliances AND AIR CONDITIONING which came in real handy for the heat wave of 2013. I think that it is located in the best part of the park. You can see the river from the front porch and is well situated between the main dock and our other favorite swimming hole. There were six of us and all were able to sleep comfortably upstairs. Early risers can get up and start their day without tripping over or waking others. This was better than expected and even prettier than the picture shown above. When we come back, we will try and get this one again. Dogs had a great time as well.

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first visit to Thousand Island Park and we loved it. The owners we quick to respond with any questions. This cottage was clean, charming and within walking/biking distance to everything. We love to cook and the kitchen came fully equipped with everything we needed. our grandson loved being so close to the playground and quickly made friends with neighborhood children. We came for my nephew's wedding but would come back In an instant. Thousand Island Park is like stepping back in time to a simpler less complicated time! We loved it.
