What makes this Estate unique
This exquisitely beautiful property is unique in the Thousand Islands. Maple Grove is located on the mainland. It is not on an island. You will not need a boat as you would for almost all of the islands. You will not have to deal with the weather and logistics problems of being on an island.

My family truly enjoyed vacationing at Maple Grove. We had plenty of room for our 11 family members. The location and views were wonderful.
The property is beautiful along with the views. Watching the sunset over the water was breathtaking.
Absolutely Perfect! Cozy and elegant. Will definitely rent again. Thank you!
Thank you so much! We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and that you took the time to share your thoughts with us. Lynn and Bruce
Beautiful Historic home in a perfect vacation setting!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Maple Grove this summer. Chose this location so our entire family could gather to celebrate our son's wedding and to enjoy the area. The historic house is such a gracious, historic, comfortable place. Whether it was for hosting the groom and his groomsmen for breakfast or the family for dinner, enjoying quiet moments reading in the living room or relaxing on the porch (wonderful views of the beautiful blue St Lawrence River), gathering in the family room for conversation and viewing photos, or as a home base to see the many things in the area, it was just perfect. Photos of the garden do not do it justice. Kitchen may be small, but it is very well equipped and you will find everything you need to make meals for a large group. Double washers and dryers and 3 ½ baths were an added plus for our large group. As for sightseeing, you could go to Alexandria Bay to see Boldt Castle or take a cruise of the 1000 Islands, or go to Clayton and visit the charming shops (be sure to include the River Rat Cheese Store) and restaurants, but you could also take a ferry (May to October) directly from Cape Vincent to Canada's Wolfe Island (remember your passports!) and from there (at no extra charge) to Kingston, Ontario, very easily and what a pleasant ride! You can walk on the ferry, bicycle on, or drive your car. Another local attraction is Tibbett's Point Lighthouse and there are a few restaurants, a park, and a very nice grocery store right in Cape Vincent. If we did have concerns about the house or area, the caretakers were readily available and answered our questions. We enjoyed every day of our stay and would highly recommend both Maple Grove and Cape Vincent as a vacation destination.
perfect summer wedding venue
We had a fantastic week at Maple Grove. The property is gorgeous and provides the perfect amount of space to spread out and relax. We hosted a 50 person wedding on Labor Day weekend and utilized the incredible garden for the ceremony, side lawn for our catered BBQ dinner and a tent for live music and dancing. The private access waterfront allowed ample opportunity to enjoy the picturesque St. Lawrence River and its many big ships. We could not have asked for a better venue. The town of Cape Vincent welcomed us warmly and our guests enjoyed the local restaurants, bars, and charming shops. Truly fantastic.
