FULL FOR THE 2016 SEASON --- NOW BOOKING FOR FALL 2016 & SUMMER 2017

Welcome to my spacious 3+ bedroom Victorian home in the heart of Alexandria Bay. My home is pet friendly, is around 110 years old and still retains some of its 'vintage' charm. It is available during the summer months. My home is in a very convenient location. It is easy to enjoy all of the village amenities from the privacy of my centrally located property. Enjoy people watching on the enclosed front porch, or if you prefer, relax in the spacious and private fenced in backyard.

On the first floor, there is a kitchen with all appliances and kitchen necessities. All you need is your food. Additionally, the first floor has ac adjusted to your liking and includes a dining room, living room, lounge, full bathroom and laundry room. TV is available in the kitchen and living room. A DVD player and wireless internet are also available to you for added convenience.

On the second floor, there is another full bath with a claw tub/shower. 3 bedrooms are available including 1 queen and 2 full beds. Individual air conditioners are in each bedroom for your comfort. Bed linens, pillows, blankets, and towels are provided.

My home has a large enough driveway to accommodate a number of vehicles including motorcycles, your boat, or your jet ski. The public boat launch is around the corner and EVERYTHING is within easy walking distance. In minutes you can walk to the River, the village beach, Uncle Sam Boat Tours, restaurants, bars, shops and marinas.

This is a great opportunity to 'Getaway' and enjoy the Thousand Islands and all it offers whether you're a family or you combine resources and are 2-3 couples, or a group of friends wanting to share the space vacationing together. This is also home to two goldendoodles, named Ruby and Doogan. They won't be here when you visit, but would welcome any canine friends to hold down the fort for them while they are away. My home is pet friendly. Please let me know if you intend to bring your dog(s) upon your visit.

About Heather Lavarnway

I am a teacher in the area and live in this house when it is not being rented. This big house is home to me and my two 'Doods', Ruby and Doogan. I used my home as a vacation rental during tourist season for the first time in 2013. It was a great experience so I decided to continue. It has allowed me to make major renovations and improvements to the house.

Heather Lavarnway purchased this house in 2003

What makes this house unique

For people who are looking for a vacation rental vs a hotel, my home is a great bang for your buck especially if you are traveling with others who help split the cost. The River and the Bay scene are a quick walk. ---very convenient. My home is cozy and welcoming and has plenty of room to relax in. It is also a great option for you if you like to travel with your dog(s).

Repeat Visitors

Our second time staying here and it's so convenient to town. Short walk but far enough to avoid the evening noise from Pirate's weekend. Great place to stay and the owner is very accommodating. Hope to be back next year!

Alexandria Bay

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of 5.

Heather was great. She helped us plan our trip.

We could walk to everything.

1000 Islands are stunning.

People of Alexandria Bay were very friendly and welcoming.

Can't wait to return.

Convenient location and great space!

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfectly located for exploring all that Alex Bay has to offer. You can easily walk to the main drag or to a convenience store to pick up some provisions. The house itself is a tastefully decorated Victorian style with ample sitting, relaxing and dining space. The homeowner has thought of everything in terms of amenities and necessities. The real jewel is the fenced in back yard! Complete privacy and very helpful if you intend to bring a dog as we did. The patio area is comfortable with plenty of lounge chairs and a table and a large grill that looks brand new. The yard is good sized and beautiful flowers really make you feel like you are on vacation.

Notes:
This house is not situated on the water. However, the River is very close by and the beautiful views are just short walk. It is very convenient to be able to enjoy the scene and night life without having to worry about parking or driving as the walk is short and sweet. The boat ramp is literally around the corner at the end of the block and if you plan on boating, dockage is available in town for a small fee.
