About Victoria Beach

My husband and I purchased this home a couple of years ago and have enjoyed renting it out. We have met some wonderful families. The cottage is located on Lake of the Isles. You have a partial view of the water from the house, but have access to swimming, fishing and boating from a dock located just down the road from the house.

Victoria Beach purchased this house in 2014

Why Victoria Beach chose Wellesley Island

We have always lived on Wellesley Island year round and feel blessed to live in this beautiful area. We've always said the 1000 Islands region should be one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It is a place like no other, and we hope all of our guests already love this area as much as we do, or if it is their first visit to the area, they will fall in love with it.

Great place to unwind, yet close to everything

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! This is a clean, spacious, comfortable house on

Wellesley Island, with a partial view of of Lake of the Isles, which is not really a lake, but a beautiful large, peaceful cove off of the St Lawrence River. The owners have their own private dock about 75 yards from the house. We rented 3 kayaks for the week, and were able to safely leave them on the dock, ready for use anytime we wanted to just paddle around the scenic body of water, or go fishing ( plenty of largemouth bass and northern pike if you know what you're doing). The house was conveniently located no more than 20 - 30 minutes from everything from hiking trails, zip lining, white water rafting, boat cruises and even mini golf, as well as restaurants/shops/activities in the towns of Alexandria Bay and Clayton. It's also just a few minutes from the Canadian border as well (Charleston Lake Provincial Park is beautiful).

We had one minor issue with the air conditioner, but that was quickly resolved by the owners. Victoria was very helpful and responsive to texts and calls whenever we had a question. She made sure we had everything we needed. The only thing we didn't have was a washing machine ( but we knew that in advance), and would have loved to have had use of the fireplace and/or fire pit. That being said, we loved everything about our stay. Just wish it could've been for more than a week!

Relaxing in the Thousand Islands!

  • 4 of 5

This was our second visit to this house, and we have had a great experience both times. We bring our own boat and kayaks, and we like being in Lake of the Isles where there is less traffic and calmer water. It's a short boat ride to Boldt Castle and the International Rift. We caught bass right off of the dock as well as from our boat. We caught enough for a fish dinner after a few days of not-very-serious fishing. We found lots of other things to do, too, such as hiking at the nearby nature parks, day trips into Canada for shopping and sight-seeing, and visiting local restaurants between Alexandria Bay and Clayton. Thousand Island Park is a quaint little community that is like stepping back in time, only 4 miles from the house. There is a fine-dining restaurant there as well as a sandwich shop with great ice cream, definitely worth a trip or two! It was handy having a supermarket just across the bridge, which we visited daily! We were very happy that our dog was allowed to join us. The only areas that were less than perfect were the weak water pressure, not being able to drink the tap water, and no washer and drier available. But we were able to manage those situations. The owners live just across the street and were able to answer any questions we had or help us in whatever way was needed. We are looking forward to returning again soon!

Lovely vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for 5 nights to attend our daughter's wedding in the area. We couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations. The owners went out of their way to make us comfortable, and were gracious and welcoming. The open floor plan of the home is great for family get-togethers, and there was plenty of room for our group of 5 adults and a child. With lots of last-minute wedding preparations and extra out-of-town wedding guests stopping by, we had ample parking and seating space, and really appreciated the well laid out and fully equipped kitchen. We would highly recommend this rental, and hope to visit again to sit on the deck and enjoy the beautiful view.
