Why Brian and Vicki chose Thousand Islands

We have always loved the 1000 islands and all that it has to offer and we very much enjoy the peace and quiet of the outdoors and getting away from it all. This property offered is one of the few that offers both. It is right on the water yet extremely private.

average rating of 4.75 based on 4 reviews

We loved the property and everything it had to offer.

  • 4 of 5

We had a total of 15 people there throughout the week with ages ranging from 2 1/2 up to 68. Everyone enjoyed their time. The owners were very easy to work with and were very helpful. We would go back again. As our family gets bigger and older space would be limited. The property was well maintained, amenities worked, we loved Clayton and Cape Vincent!

The property and cottages are wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fabulous time! The property is beautiful with plenty of open space flanked by trees. It felt very private. We had campfires every night on the stone beach. The long dock was great for swimming and tying up our boats. The cottages are nicely appointed and accommodated our family easily. We loved the trails on the island. We would go back in a heartbeat.

Peacful Relaxing Vacation in Paradaise

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week at this cottage and I am so happy that this was the cottage we selected. The owners were amazing from the time of booking to our departure. Upon arrival at our choice the owners showed us to the cottage, helped us to transport our luggage and food to the island and then quickly left so we could enjoy our week of peace in complete privacy. This house has it all from the amazing waterfront location, complete privacy, amazing sunsets, close up view of the shipping channel, great swimming off the dock or on the amazing flat rock. The minute we arrived we felt at home and relaxed. I wish we never had to leave. The house and guest house are both perfect. We recently asked our children where they would like to vacation this summer and the only response we received was at this same location. We offered the ocean, Disney and many other locations and our children said no please this same location. We will return year after year to this amazing gem.
