About Linda Inserra
This is our second Harbor Villa property since we love it so much! We spend much of our time at our home in Colorado and enjoy the Spring and Fall in Upstate New York to visit family and friends who we grew up with. We love the boating and fishing, and the beauty of the Thousand Islands and the surrounding areas.
Linda Inserra purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Linda Inserra chose Alexandria Bay
We couldn't resist the convenience of being directly on a waterway with the boathouse under our home. We bought into the Harbor Villa property when it was still being developed in 2008. We've seen huge improvements in the surrounding properties in the past few years and expect the draw to the River to increase over the next few years as well.
What makes this Villa unique
We hope you'll let us know what draws you to the River and what activities you like to enjoy when you visit the Alexandria Bay area.

Everything you need in a home away from home!
My family and I had a wonderful stay in this home. There was adequate space for us and the 4 kids! They had a blast fishing in the boat garage! It’s clean, nice and has whatever you need for the stay. Close to the grocery and other stores. Can walk or drive to the Bay shops and restaurants. (Korner’s had the best pizza that we found!) Linda was quick to answer any questions we had and was very easy to deal with. I’d definitely stay here again in the future!
Awesome! So glad you enjoyed our Town Home and boat house. I'd be glad to have you and your family return for another visit! Thanks, Linda
Great choice for a family of 5.
Great time. Location was close to town, plenty of space for us. As a family of 5, finding a hotel to accommodate us all is nearly impossible. This fit the bill. Everyone got to sleep in their own bed, no sleeper sofa. We were able to play cards in the living room. We brought our breakfast sandwich maker and Keurig. So after a little shopping at the Big M, we had breakfast covered. The kitchen and pantry storage had us covered. We like taking boat rides, but we prefer to let others do the driving while we relax (Unlce Sam's Tours did a great job), so we did not take advantage of the boat garage, but we saw that others did. We visited Boldt Castle, Singer Castle, Zip Lined in Canada, Took in the view of the Thousand Islands Tower, did a wine tour, met an old school barber (who gave my son a superior hair cut), Walked in the parks, Checked out the Tourist Shops, Visited Sacket's Harbor, all in all, very relaxing. Our goal was for relaxation and the Thousand Islands provided that. This location made it easy to get to everything and to get away from everything. If you are looking for a great view, this is not it, but if you are looking for a place that will give you some elbow room to wind down from your adventures and can keep in mind that this isn't a 5 star resort with a large staff to handle every issue, I would highly recommend it.
WOW! Your really spent your time well and got to take in so much that Alexandria Bay has to offer! Hopefully you will return next year and see the Marina View take shape. It's a slow process but will be worth it when all the boats will be on display while enjoying coffee on the balcony!
This house is perfect for a small family getsway. Clean & well equipped! Owner is so nice
Great location for boaters and walks to Alex bay. Well equipped and clean. Sleeps 6 easily. Only drawback is seating to eat. Tough for little ones to eat at island but you can make do! Visited twice and will be back!
Thanks so much for the feedback! I'm always looking for ways to make my guests' stay more comfortable, and I love the idea of seating that can accommodate young ones!
Hope to hear from you for your next River vacation. Have a great year,
Great Vacation Home
The kitchen was beautiful and well stocked with everything we needed. The layout was convenient and we appreciated the closets and pantry for clothes and food storage. The boat garage was fantastic!! Really convenient!!! So nice to not have to drag everything to a boat dock.
As with any waterfront home, spiders and spiderwebs were the only real issue.
We would recommend this property.
Thanks Mandi, I appreciate the feedback. Looks like a power wash is needed twice a year! We are very lucky to have a property that offers a boat house that can accommodate high water as easily as low water! So glad you had a great time
The boating is amazing! The islands offer views of Castles, mansions and ,historical monuments. The St Lawrence river is alive with international cargo ships, cruise ships, Yachts, and boats of all sizes and types. The variety of birds range from eagles,herons, egrets, to humming birds. The deer run wild on Welsely Island in the Thousand Island Park and on the mainland of Canada and the US. Marinas and Resorts line the waterway with access to restaurants or hotels by boat with ample dockage.
Bolt Castle is only a few minutes boat ride with self guided tours and opportunity to "Wedding Watch" every weekend. Not far away by boat is Singer Castle with guided tours of the historical residence with secret passageways, hidden doors and Peek-a-boo viewing locations that were used to spy on guests.
The weekends are busy with pirate events, classic cars, motorcycle tours, farmers markets, craft fairs and the like. The beauty of our location is that it is a quiet retreat just outside of the village activities, yet only a short walk away from all the activity.
The absolute best amenity is that you have your own boathouse located directly under the town home where you can store your boat or water vehicles in the 16'x40' enclosure. There is even a sitting area where the men (or women) can relax and enjoy a cigar or fish directly off the indoor dock.
It's spectacular!! We hope you take advantage of our unique property.
