Perfect Spot in the Thousand Islands!

  • 5 of 5

As a first time visitor to the Thousand Islands, I really lucked out finding this gem of a house! It is pristine clean and beautiful. The house has so much space and is very comfortable. Everything you need is there...towels, bedding, kitchen and cooking tools plus a washer and drier. They even have puzzles, books and games to use! We loved the view off the back deck and the screened in porch. This house is a great place to stay and close to Clayton and all the attractions. I only wished we had more time there. Will definitely be back. The home owners are super responsive and so accommodating. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. WE LOVED IT!

The Jewel of the Bay!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying I am loathe to write a great review because then everyone will want to stay here and it will be too booked for me to come back! But gosh, I cannot stop thinking about my vacation here. This place looks inviting online, but surpasses that in person. I opened the front door and actually said out loud, "Oh. My. Gosh." It was THAT impressive. What a lovely home with inviting views and an even more inviting place to retreat. The main room and master bedroom are jaw-droppingly beautiful; very well appointed. Fayanne has certainly done her homework with this place and I can honestly say that this was one of, if not the nicest places I've ever stayed at! I would give it more way stars if I had the option and I will most definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Wow, that is such a great review- thanks so much- We will always try to make time for you to enjoy the cottage- September is a gorgeous time up there- wish the kids didn't have school :) Have a wonderful winter and hope to hear from you again! Fayanne

Stunning and truly serene!

  • 5 of 5

The name of Fayanne and John's place really does say it all! The home is just perfection in every way. We arrived in late July for a family reunion of sorts and we weren't disappointed. The screened porch and dock were our favorite spots on this lovely property. You won't want to miss one sunset or sunrise fishing on the water. The Hoonings have thought of everything when it comes to being gracious hosts. We enjoyed terrific days on the water and quality family time in the large great room area.

We have been coming to the River for many years and look forward to enjoying more family time at Serenity Now; we are counting the days until summer 2017!!!

We highly recommend this well-appointed, serene spot on the River. I can't say enough positive things about it, particularly the professional communication and rapport we had with Fayanne. Thanks so much for ensuring we all had a picture-perfect summer vacation.

On Golden River

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our week in 1,000 Islands. The home was spacious, very well maintained, immaculate and charming. With stunning views of the sunset on the St. Lawrence River, it conjured images of On Golden Pond. As an active family with teen age boys we loved the hiking, biking, fishing and exploring. The NY State parks are great resources in the area and we recommend Wellesley Island State Park. We rented a pontoon boat to experience the river and tour the local attractions like Boldt Castle. Serenity Now is a gem that's enhanced by the wonderful interactions with Fayanne who was always warm, helpful and professional!

Perfectly Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed every aspect of this beautiful lake front getaway! From the first morning coffee on the porch, to relaxing family dinners, swimming and fishing, and watching the ships...everyone loved it! The owners were helpful, attentive, and welcoming. We can't wait for our next visit to Serenity Now!
