About Beth Japchen
My parents originally bought Shetland Island sight unseen in 1964. At the time the island did not have a dock or a house on it. They built a dock first and rented a houseboat during the summer. In 1967 they saved enough money to build the cottage that stands today. In 1999 my husband and I took ownership of the island. We have made many renovations and upgrades, but have kept the feel of the original house.
Beth Japchen purchased this Cottage in 1999
Why Beth Japchen chose Gananoque
This island is the best place to be on the river! It is located in the highly sought after lake fleet group of islands. The island is not too big, but not too small either! We are not close to main waterways and therefore it is very peaceful and safe. There is deep water on all sides of the island and the concrete docks and wood walkways that make it very easy to navigate the island. From the inside out, the island and cottage are meticulously maintained.
What makes this Cottage unique
It's your own piece of heaven!!! The island comes fully equipped. Vacation starts the minute you step onto Shetland Island!
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Shetland Island is the ideal 1000 Island vacation spot. It is ideally located within a stone's throw of the best the region has to offer. The cottage was impeccable and supplied with everything you could possibly need for a stay of any length. The kitchen and BBQ would leave any cook wanting for nothing. We especially loved and often spoke of the fact that the numerous sitting areas provided for great views in every direction. Morning coffee on the dock, lunch and dinner on the deck and stars on the front porch before bed. Thanks to Beth and her family for giving us the opportunity.

Relaxing island in great location
Our family of 5 stayed at Shetland Island for 5 relaxing days. The Island is in a very quiet convenient location and is very well maintained. Communication with the owner was great. The home was very comfortable and had every amenity you would need. We would recommend staying here and would love to return in the future. Thank you for sharing your peaceful island with us.
Great house, great view
Rented the house for a fishing trip with Friends. House was super clean. Worth every dollar. Would rent again
We stayed here for four wonderful, relaxing days on a beautiful island with a gorgious house. What else can you say than just: We'd love to come back.
Everything you need is available and well kept.
Communication with the owners was always quick, helpful and friendly.
Thanks for wonderful and sunny days!
We are located about 3 miles from the border of Gananoque, Ontario, Canada and about 8 miles from the border of Clayton, NY. The Island is located in the Lake Fleet Group of islands on the Canadian side of the Saint Lawrence River.
