About Edwina Kinchington
I am an Educator in secondary education in the City of Pittsburgh. I did cancer research for almost 18 years before becoming a teacher. I love the water - it is in my blood. I was a competitive swimmer in my youth and competed in the 1984 and 1988 US Olympic trials. I love swimming in the St. Lawrence. My husband is also in education as professor at the University of Pittsburgh.
Edwina Kinchington purchased this Cottage in 1959
Why Edwina Kinchington chose Town of Alexandria
Campbell's Linden Cove property was purchased by my Mother and her Father in 1959 as a summer vacation spot. My Mother's family were from Alexandria Bay with the Campbell's (my Mother's maiden name) being doctors in the area. My parents were married in Alexandria Bay and they vacationed here in the late 1950's and 1960's. There had been a large victorian home on the property which became too much to maintain. My parents build the present cottage in 1967 shortly after my sister and I were born. My mother loved this property and we vacationed here more in my older life. My own family (husband, 2 children and dogs) have grown to love the river and the property. Unfortunately, my mother died in 2011. We have made many renovations to the cottage with a brand new kitchen, all new windows, patio enclosure room, 60 ft main channel dock and 30 foot boating dock. We want to keep the property in our family but in order to do that we need to help support the upkeep and taxes which is why we are renting. We hope that you grow to love the property as much as we do.
What makes this Cottage unique
We love dogs and our dogs love the river. We want to allow renters to bring their pets so they can all enjoy it. There are 2 large and secure dog runs on the property if needed. The location of this property is prime waterfront on the Saint Lawrence River. You can safely swim, kayak, boat, fish while watching the lakers go by. We are 1 mile up river from Alexandria Bay, 3 miles from the Bridge. You can sit on the dock and watch the spectacular fireworks at Boldt Castle. There is almost 1 acre of land surrounded by a post and rail fence. The water line is truly amazing with a small island with a bridge. This is one of the most beautiful places in the world and my family has a great deal of heritage here.

They loved it!!
Booked this for my father & his girlfriend as Xmas gift. In mean time they got married & it turned out to be a little honeymoon for them. They absolutely loved it! The view & the ships going right by was their favorite part. They raved about how nice the owner was & thought her communication was great. They are already talking to her about booking for a week in the summer. Definitely will go back!!!
Glad it worked out despite late in season. Pleasure working with you. No matter what the season, the River is always beautiful. Thank you.
1st VRBO vacation
Our vacation here was wonderful. Our first time in a cottage on the river.We were able to bring our Lab. She loved it there. The cottage was very clean and cozy, I liked having an open kitchen with a view of the river from the floor to ceiling sun room. It is stocked with everything you could need . The views were incredible. We saw ships day and night. Edwina always replied to all of my questions. We can't wait to return next year if we can.
American narrows, enough said
If you are into the river this is your best bet
