Why Brian and Vicki chose Cape Vincent

We have always loved the 1000 islands and all that it has to offer and we very much enjoy the peace and quiet of the outdoors and getting away from it all. This property offered is one of the few that offers both. It is right on the water yet extremely private.

Everything we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time on this beautiful secluded property. It was everything we hoped for! Great views from the open family area, awesome swimming spot, great access to everything in the area. Particularly happy that we were able to rent the pontoon from the owners (who were so friendly and helpful!). Loved this trip!

Great cottage for entertaining a larger group of friends/family.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great ten days. Lots of room to spread out at this cottage. You can swim off the deep dock or there is shallow shelf for young kids to swim. Even though you are on a secluded section you can also stretch your legs on a five mile trail around the island. Kids loved the swimming, kayaking, bonfires, and catching fireflies. Note the headwinds can be strong off the open lake when trying to boat to Cape Vincent.

We loved the property and everything it had to offer.

  • 4 of 5

We had a total of 15 people there throughout the week with ages ranging from 2 1/2 up to 68. Everyone enjoyed their time. The owners were very easy to work with and were very helpful. We would go back again. As our family gets bigger and older space would be limited. The property was well maintained, amenities worked, we loved Clayton and Cape Vincent!

The property and cottages are wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fabulous time! The property is beautiful with plenty of open space flanked by trees. It felt very private. We had campfires every night on the stone beach. The long dock was great for swimming and tying up our boats. The cottages are nicely appointed and accommodated our family easily. We loved the trails on the island. We would go back in a heartbeat.
