Relaxation on the River

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year staying in this beautiful home for our 1,000 Islands stay and we couldn't be happier. Every year when we open the door, we sigh "ahhh- we're home". This house makes you FEEL like it is your own. It's not stuffy, it's cheerful, and it comes with all the comforts you could want....from towels and bedding, down to measuring spoons and beach towels. You don't have to worry about a thing. I love how close it is to A-Bay (within 10 mins) and Clayton (within 30 mins) - so restaurants, activities and tours are just a short drive, or boat ride away. This year we had an equal share of sunny days mixed with cloudy rainy days, which allowed us to go enjoy the river on a pontoon boat (rented from Aqua Mainia and docked right at the house) a few days and the rest of the time, enjoy the benefits of house. Things like the beautiful screened in porch, dock for fishing, 6 person dining table for family meals and games & huge living room for enjoying one another's company. We have already planned our stay for next year- and hope to keep this tradition up for as long as Fayanne will have us! :)

Stay here- you won't be disappointed!

Beautiful Home on an incredible spot on the river

  • 5 of 5

I have vacationed in the 1000 Island area on and off since 1983. This year I had a larger than normal group coming up with me so we decided to upgrade our accommodations. I think I was at the Serenity Now house for 1 hour before I texted the owner and told her that I would take the same week next year. Highlights of the house are the huge living room, and the fantastic screened in porch where you can easily watch the river or the kids swimming off the dock. The neighborhood itself is straight out of the 1800's. Small winding roads and old, well cared for vacation homes. All neighbors we met were very friendly and welcoming. We rented a pontoon boat that we easily tied up to the large dock area. The dock is great for sitting and enjoying the sunset and we were constantly fishing off of it. The owner checked in from time to time just to make sure everything was going fine, she really cares and wants you to enjoy her lovely home. The 1000 Islands is a boaters paradise and we went on long cruises everyday. We had a group of 8 and we fit in the large house with plenty of room to spare. I am counting the days when my family and I return in the summer of 2018.

Owner's Response: Thank you- we loved having your family share in the magic of the river- I am so lucky to have so many repeat renters that my reviews have been slowing as I don't want to keep asking the same families. Next year will be here before you know it- Best of health to your family- Fayanne

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.

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.
