Family Adventure

  • 5 of 5

This was our first adventure on the St Lawrence River. It was awesome. The house, and property were beautiful. We loved the deck, the lawn and the view of the river. We rented a boat and fished and boated on the river almost every day we were there. Our two young grandsons loved the boat, and the water. the water off the dock was shallow just perfect for swimming with the family. We rented a pan toon boat and did not have any problems coming into the dock. Mike, the owner was very helpful with any questions we had. We have rented vacation houses and none of the owners were as nice and caring as Mike.

Alex Bay is close and we even traveled up to Ogdensburg. We also went to Masenna to see the Locks and saw some barges and ships. It was only about an hour or so. We had a great time and would love to go back again.

Can't wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation to Alexandria Bay. We couldn't have chosen a more perfect house in a more perfect location. The house is lovely, roomy, and had all the amenities we needed for the week. The owner, Mike, is readily accessible for questions and helpful information. Short drive to Alex Bay, dining, mini golf...lots to do. We already miss relaxing on the deck, the view, and evenings around the campfire....hope to return next summer!!

Couldn't have been more perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This home and the property are beautiful! We rented this for an anniversary celebration with our family and the accommodations could not have been better. The home is supplied with everything you would need. It's spacious, the beds were very comfortable, the view from the front deck is spectacular, and the large yard made for a great game of hide 'n seek frisbee! We brought a boat with us so the dock was very handy. This is a wonderful area to explore and this home and property really made for a fantastic vacation! I would highly recommend this place!!

Relaxing Waterfront Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Great place to just get away from the noise and traffic. Loved the openness of the kitchen, dining and living room area. You could sit anywhere in this area and look out to the water. This house was just the right size for 5 adults and one child. The weather was ideal to leave the windows open and feel the cool breeze all day long. The front yard was great for our grandson to run around and play ball. Downtown Alexandria Bay was only about 15 minutes away with restaurants along the water and some shopping. Visited Clayton and toured the boat museum and then did some shopping.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect location with plenty of room and a great yard. Truly a home away from home and had everything we needed from pots and pans to a washer & dryer. Home was neat and clean, extra blankets and pillows available, very comfortable. Coffee on the deck with the Kindle while the water laps the shore...nothing better!

We also rented a deck boat from Aqua Marina for the week and were able to go tubing and visit the castles. It can be shallow near the dock, we were okay, but any later in the season and you may have to anchor out a bit and wade to and from shore...if you have kids, worth it to bring a badminton net/ outdoor sports equipment since the yard is nice and big.

It is a short ride by car or boat to downtown Alex Bay or Clayton. Clayton is a bit further south but has better downtown/dining options. Grocery store is about 15 minutes south or if you are looking for a Walmart/Lowes/Price Chopper, worth it to go north on 12 for about 25-30 minutes.

Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, with all linens, plates, etc provided - even a gas grille. Our family of five was able to coexist without feeling cramped. We found the place to be very clean and well decorated. The yard is incredible, offering lots of shade with an amazing view of Chippewa Bay, and nice views of the ships passing in the distance. Approx. 10 minute boat ride to Singer Castle, maybe 40 minutes to Boldt Castle. Alexandria Bay is about a 20 minute drive, Clayton perhaps 10 minutes further. We have no complaints about the driving, it's all very scenic and not at all crowded.

The house is on a private lane with little traffic. The yard ends at a dock on a nice, quiet part of the river. As first-time boaters we never felt crowded or nervous on the water. We boated every day. As one reviewer noted the water is a bit shallow at the dock, but we managed to get a pontoon boat in and out with no issues. We chose not to swim from the dock, but did just fine from the boat when anchored near the many nearby islands.

Blind Bay Marina a short walk away, offering boat rentals, fuel, and a small convenience store. Shermerhorn Marina is a five minute drive, with a larger rental and store operation. If renting a boat try and reserve well in advance. We waited too long and probably paid too much for an older boat.

This seems to be a year-round residence with heat (and fireplace). No air conditioning but even in August the evenings were cool and comfortable - we never missed it!

We would absolutely recommend the property!
