Our 120+ year old family summer cottage located on Grenell Island in the 1000 islands. Grenell island is located near the head of Wellesley Island and Clayton, NY with an easy commute to the NY mainland. The island is 1/2 mile by 1/4 mile long with nice walking trails, community house (with ping pong, free library, seasonal post office) and a historical chapel. Grenell is only accessible by boat (several local marinas rent boats). The cottage is located on the channelside with plenty of deep water for swimming and boating. The porch extends the length of the house with a great viewing area of ships and other channel activity. Seeing the sunrise and moonrise from a favorite chair on the porch. The cottage has plenty of space for a family and friends. We have many family memories here, make your next summer memories on Grenell.

Why Robin Gedney Lucas chose Clayton
We fell in love with this cottage due to its location on the channelside and Grenell's location with plenty to do on the island. We have a post office, chapel, and community house. There is a public path that goes around the 1/2 mile x 1/4 mile island for walking or running. Love the large boat house, large front porch and scenic views of the river.
What makes this Cottage unique
One of the favorite things on the property is swinging from the long rope swing in the front oak tree and swinging out over the River. There is plenty of privacy due to the public path along the back of the house, with privacy in front. Great star gazing, moon rises and sun rises right from the front porch. Great location for water skiing right off the front of the dock. No weeds and plenty of fresh deep water for swimming right in front of the cottage. A big favorite is hanging out on the front porch. The upstairs bedroom has a private porch too.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Great Views and Swimming
The house faces the channel and always had a nice breeze. We loved sitting on the porch and watching the kids swim. There is also a community house with games and books. The owners were very nice and helpful. Enjoyed our stay.
