Heron Lodge is in the heart of Oak Point, felt by many to be the most family friendly and enjoyable community in the Thousand Islands! Relax on the screened porch while playing a game of Monopoly or enjoying a sunset dinner overlooking the bay.
Inside the lodge, enjoy the large first floor area with open living/dining space, kitchen with full sized appliances, bathroom with full tub/shower, and two bedrooms. View the majestic St. Lawrence all the way to the lighthouse on Crossover Island from the large 2nd floor sleeping loft.
The expanded dock area has plenty of room to sit and enjoy the view, jump in the water, dock your boat, fish, sip your coffee in the morning or a cocktail at happy hour. Take a day trip to many US & Canadian attractions in Alexandria Bay, Clayton, Kingston or Brockville. Museums, historic castles & forts, island parks, great restaurants. Perfect for families, couples, fishermen, hunters, golfers, cyclists. Dock space and canoe use available. We look forward to your stay with us!
The Oak Point Community: Oak Point truly is one of a kind community. As 4th generation Oak Pointers, we can tell you that once you visit, you will return again and again. Kids love all the activities - swimming in the bay, fishing off the dock, visits to the Acorn Community Center for candy & game nights, the 4th of July parade, land & water games and ice cream social. Adults love it for the same reasons! Take a walk around the circle and visit the historic cemetery, swing on the swings at the Acorn, bike through the farm country, buy local produce and baked goods at an Amish farm. Free town boat launch just steps away from the lodges.
On the Water: The earliest Native Americans called this region Manitowana - the Garden of the Great Spirit, and it is a vacationers' dream! Nature and water activities abound - cruise the 1000 islands, kayak in the early morning or evening to get close to nature, sail or windsurf through the whitecaps, go water-skiing or tubing along the coast, jet ski through the seaway channel, watch the Poker Run speedboat races between Kingston and Brockville, start a list of all the international ships plying the channel (they are especially beautiful at night with their deck lights glowing). The Thousands Islands is the world's finest fresh water diving destination - dive the many wrecks in water so clear you can see up to 100'. Or just sit on the dock and dangle your feet in the water!
Fishing - Pike season starts the 1st Sat. in April; Bass & Muskie seasons start the 3rd Sat. in June. Muskie fishing is best in late fall, and ice fishing is great in mid-winter! Kids love catching perch, sunfish & rock bass off the docks.
Golfing - the nearest course is Langbrook Meadows in Brier Hill; nearby are 3 on Wellesley Island, 3 in Clayton, 2 in Governeur, New York State Park Course in Ogdensburg, Alexandria Bay Municipal Course in Alex Bay.
Hunting - we are open for duck & deer hunting seasons in the Spring/Fall.
Cycling - there is a great off-road, rails-to-trails system along the river, with difficulty levels ranging from simple to challenging.
Diving - there are many dive outfitters in the region who can take you to the numerous popular and interesting wreck sites all up and down the river.
