About Lindsey Leve

My fiance Zach and I live on Wintergreen Island with our 4 happy labs in the summer and in Clayton, NY for the winter.

In addition to managing our family owned property, I am a digital marketing consultant and owner of Wintergreen Digital Media.

We love the 1000 Islands and are proud to call this beautiful place home.

Why Lindsey Leve chose Clayton

We are nestled among islands between Clayton and Fishers Landing. From the east side of Wintergreen you have a view of the shipping channel and Rock Island Lighthouse and from the west you can see straight to Clayton.

Whether you are looking for a peaceful getaway or if you are ready to explore the wonders of the St. Lawrence River, Wintergreen is a great home base for your vacation.

Our front dock provides a great space for swimming, fishing, watersports and great views for you to enjoy as you sip on your favorite cocktail!

Great location, beautiful Island

  • 5 of 5

Great host, beautiful Island, great location.

Lindsey (host) was nice and answered all our questions. Her friends were visiting the island and were all very friendly.

My kids loved various aspects of the island. The sandy beach, complete with kid water toys, was a favorite spot of theirs. They caught a bunch of fish from the dock. We also borrowed a kayak and a conoe and explored the waters around the island. There were some visiting dogs on the island and they were super friendly. My kids (including my 2 yr old) liked playing toss with them.

The location was nice. Thousand Islands Park is just a short boat drive away. Clayton was about a 15 min boat ride for our rented pontoon boat. Alex Bay / Boldt castle was not close but it was within reach - and we boated up to Alex bay twice. Tons of Islands to explore and Eel bay to the north was a good fishing spot.

I’d recommend staying at this little cottage on beautiful Wintergreen Island.

A rustic cottage on one of the 1000 islands...perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

There was some ongoing construction by the owners through the weekend however Lindsey was very accommodating. This situation will only improve as the work completes, it’s going to be a very beautiful spot. And for the fisherman, you simply cannot beat the location!!

Wintergreen island getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 4 day getaway at Wintergreen Island! It was decided at the last minute and Lindsey & Zach could not have been more accommodating. Both were extremely welcoming. There are other houses on the island but there is plenty of room for all. Great location, dockage, swimming, fishing, ect. Zach & Lindsey met us at the State Park across the waterway where we launched our boat and parked our car and trailer. Everything was nice and simple! Great vacation.
