About the Owner
About Jim Ludwig III
The Ludwig family has owned this property since 1974. It is our private home and we spend most of the spring and fall living on the island. Our extended family operates Camp Bil-O-Wood, , a summer children's camp located in Northern Ontario. Because we are in camp for much of the summer we usually rent 4 to 6 weeks each summer to families from all over the northeast. Since this is our three season home we are very particular about the families with whom we share it. Many of our families have been renting with us for more than 20 years. They feel like Bluff Island is their summer home and they treat it that way. Those who share our home are responsible for leaving the facility in the same excellent condition in which they found it upon arrival. We have no cleaning service because of our island location and ask that families clean it when they leave and treat the home like it is their own. This process has worked extremely well for the past 40 years.
We hope you like what you see and will contact us to see about remaining openings for the 2016 season. Or perhaps you would like to be put on a waiting list for 2017. Please see the calendar.
Jim Ludwig III purchased this house in 1974
Why Jim Ludwig III chose Thousand Islands
As they say! It is all about LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION. While there are many other properties in the 1000 Islands NONE have the views and proximity to the action that we have on Bluff Island. Our contemporary home is a pleasant place to spend a summer vacation. It is close to Clayton for all your shopping needs. You can swim, fish and relax on your on island, at a place you too may someday call home.
What makes this house unique
- Super views . . . Huge Decks . . . Privacy!
- Great fishing! Check out the number of boats that stop at your house to fish!
- Solitude on your own pleasure island.
- A home with a fully equipped kitchen if you should decide to eat in.
- Windows GALORE! Everywhere you look there is an extra large window to allow you to view the wonders of this Bluff Island home and it's surroundings.
- Relax on the 1500 sq. ft. of deck or overlooking the St. Lawrence River in a swinging hammock.
