Best Vacation Rental in the Thousand Islands!

  • 5 of 5

I have traveled all over the United States and Canada and this is hands down the best rental I have ever stayed in. Not only were the owners and their staff friendly, hospitable and generous, but the accommodations themselves are better than ANY you will find in the area. This particular rental boasts a full kitchen (with utensils), a dishwasher, washer/dry, two full bathrooms and more than enough room to sleep 4 comfortably. This rental is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts, with easy access to world renowned fishing locations, snowmobile trails and hunting opportunities. However, for those who prefer not to venture into the wilderness, the cottage comes with free cable and WiFi, and is just steps away from the largest and one of the most acclaimed wineries in NNY, where cottage guests are eligible to receive an ample discount on purchases. Myself and those in my party (2 of whom traveled from out of state) have agreed that this will be a yearly tradition for all of us, as the quality, hospitality, and sporting opportunities of this rental are beyond reproach. Give it a shot any time of the year and you will not be disappointed!

We enjoyed our stay.

  • 4 of 5

We would love to stay at the house again. The house was very nice and had so much to offer. We will absolutely recommend this home to everyone we know looking for a place to stay in the Thousand Islands. We also would like to say that everyone at the winery is great! The only concern we had was the large gap between the door and the frame, in the bathroom off the kitchen. You can see right into the bathroom thru the crack.

Relaxing and enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

A very nice, enjoying and relaxing stay. The place was a home away from home. Being on a small vacation but had the everyday feel of being home. Very clean and well maintained. Excellent customer service. I have already recommended this place to family and friends.

Very impressed and highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

This place is really wonderful. It's clean, quiet, spacious, comfortable with great views outside. We can easily reach for many scenic and beautiful parks. Very nice tasting at the winery just near the house, with the 20% discount for buying the wine. Owner Stephen was very nice and friendly, and prepared for almost everything we need. We were very impressed with this house, and definitely stay here again.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We used the cottage for our stay during our wedding. We were overwhelmed by all the little extras we found in the house to make our stay more comfortable. We lived staying there, it felt more like home rather than just a place to stay. It was a perfect location for us with our wedding at the winery and ceremony in A-bay. I would recommend use of this property to anyone and we look forward to staying there again.
