Enjoy beautiful sunsets and observe ocean-going freighters while relaxing off of the front deck of this beautiful, quiet, bungalow-style, 1,300 sq ft, two story cottage. Low level light pollution provides for great star-gazing, as the sound of loons and the St. Lawrence lapping on the shore put you gently to sleep each night.

With plenty of room to move around, there's no need to feel cramped or stressed indoors or out. Take long walks. Rent or dock your boat at Cedar Point State Park for the best rates, only one half a mile away by foot or one and a half miles by car.

Visit antique stores, book stores, or great restaurants in nearby downtown Clayton, Cape Vincent, Sackett's Harbor, or Alexandria Bay with boat tours, fishing, go-kart tracks, golfing... you name it.

AND for all of this there are no additional or hidden fees. Everything is there at your disposal when you arrive. No need to check out what you need (e.g. paper products, etc.) and then go to the store to buy it.

We have direct access steps to the St. Lawrence River. There is no dock. Closest public dock at Cedar Point State Park; 0.5 miles by foot or 1.5 miles by car, cost at their day rate. Flat rock beach. Water shoes should be worn.

Additional Property Information

This home was located right on the St. Lawrence River and was roomy enough to have guests over. The three larger bedrooms weren't cramped as we experienced others' cottages to be and has plenty of closet space. It was also fully and tastefully furnished, but the quiet and beautiful sunsets and a sky full of stars. It was so restful that we just couldn't pass it up. We've owned it for twelve years now and have absolutely no regrets!! Every time we go to the place we can hardly wait until we are there, and after we leave, we can't wait to get back!

There is plenty of room with no need to feel cramped...even on those rainy days.

Sunsets are 'to die for' is what we continually hear from our guests.

Neighbors are friendly and helpful and are not 'nosy.'

About the Owner

The owners are four individuals who regularly use the cottage for themselves, as well as use it for rental income. Therefore, we feel that what makes us comfortable and wanting to come back over and over again, are the same things that our guests will also value. We make annual updates to the cottage and property, so those of our guests who have continually rented, experience desired improvements each time they return.

We want all our guests to feel as if they have received a good value after having stayed with us.

Swimming right out the back door

This is the second time we have stayed here. House is well apportioned and is very clean. Great spot for ship watching, beautiful sunsets and swimming right out the back door.

Cozy home with amazing views!

From begining to end communication with Andy was wonderful! He was always great with answering questions, and throughout our stay ensured all was well without overdoing it! The home was comfortable and very clean!! Immediately i felt at home, and the views from the river were gorgeous! Central location, but tucked away from all the noise and traffic! Well stocked to the point that all i needed was clothes and a toothbrush. Can’t say enough about this place, thank you for a wonderful stay!

Absolutely Wonderful!!!

This was our ninth time at this cottage and it will not be our last. It gets better and better every year. All your, at home, problems seem to melt away when you get to "THE RIVER"

An awesome cottage to enjoy a hidden paradise!

There is no better place for a getaway than the Thousand Islands. The point in the river that the cottage is located on is near perfect. The ease to get to Clayton is ideal. The owners have made the place cozy and quite organized to simplify a short visit. Enjoy!

The cottage was definitely a home away from home

We had everything we needed and more. Andy was a wonderful person to rent from answering any questions we had and even gave us fishing charter information. We can wait to to go back. You will definitely want to rent the awesome cottage more than once. We sure do!

This was a great location. Andy's personal touch was just amazing. He call or texted us throughout our stay just to check on us and see if we needed anything. The information they left for us was very helpful!
