Great location - Relaxing, quiet area of Chippewa Bay
This was our first trip to the Thousand Islands area. We planned outings every day to different towns/sights in the area - Kingston Ontario, Wellesley Island, The Eisenhower Lock, Cape Vincent, Clayton, Alex Bay, several boat tours, and a fishing charter - The Big Dipper served as the ideal 'home base' to visit all this area has to offer.
Though we were gone most of the day, we did enjoy kayaking in the early morning and in the evening - two kayaks are included with the rental. The dock is a great spot to relax and enjoy the evening and even cast a fishing line. It was nice to be surrounded by nature instead of other people!! Being from a bright, suburban area, it was amazing to see the star-filled sky at night - and of course the big dipper!
The house is as advertised with very comfortable furniture and a well-stocked kitchen. Wifi came in handy when we wanted to book boat tours, purchase Canadian fishing licenses, etc.
We love the house and the views of all the boats and animals in the bay/river. The weather was beautiful this year which made our stay very comfortable. Thanks for the wi-fi this year as we both need to work during time off. (just a little) Hopefully, we can return again next year. Thanks Steve
The cottage was comfortable. The wooded grounds offer privacy. Large dock. We enjoyed taking the 2 kayaks out.
Great location on a small inlet/cove just a little east of Alexandria Bay. Property is just as described in the listing. Open floor plan, plenty of space, great views, huge porch/deck overlooking the cove and St Lawrence Seaway. All the necessities and then some. Plenty of cookware, dishes, toiletries, etc. They even had wood to use in the fire pit and lifejackets to use with the provided kayaks. Stephen was responsive to all questions. Highly recommended property.
Great location on the river!
We enjoyed our stay at the Big Dipper cottage. The camp was very clean and well stocked with kitchen essentials. The open concept great room and kitchen felt roomy and had beautiful views of the water. We enjoyed fishing from the dock, campfires at night and visiting nearby Alexandria Bay. We will definitely stay here again!
Another Wonderful Stay!
Thank you again for another wonderful stay at your cottage....it was very relaxing and the fishing was great.....we can't wait to come back again next year.
