About Kelly Curry/ Lon Miller

My Name is Kelly Curry and I am a internationally known professional mural artist. I travel around the US and Central America painting large building murals. You can see my work on Rt. 12 between the bridge and Alexandria Bay across from the car dealership. Also down the road in Clayton NY is home to more than half a dozen murals painted by me. You can drive through the towns and see almost all of them by car. In Alexandria Bay you can see more of my work at the Cornwall brothers museum and in surrounding areas like Syracuse NY at the Erie Canal Museum and in Columbus Circle on the Catholic Diocese buildings.

Kelly Curry/ Lon Miller purchased this house in 2012

Why Kelly Curry/ Lon Miller chose New York

I bought this property because this is where my family first arrived from Ireland in 1850's.When my ancestor was 20 years old he came to log the area and he lived in Goose Bay. In 1963 my mother met my father here in Goose bay where she and her friends had rented a cottage for a short vacation. I felt like buying the home was really my life coming full circle, coming back to my roots.

What makes this house unique

A great view, by day river, sun and sky. By night stars and moon. Few things are more relaxing than sitting out on the deck on a sunny morning enjoying a cup of coffee or tea looking at the calm water of Goose Bay and the St. Lawrence river. You often see wildlife close up such as loons, ducks, geese and herons, osprey and jumping fish, and in the spring giant carp that look like mermaids when they breach the surface. Lots of turtles too!

Beautiful & Accommodating!

  • 5 of 5

Lon and Kelly were wonderful hosts - we were a larger group (11 people) and they were very accommodating and communicative throughout the reservation process. The house is in a quiet location with beautiful morning and sunset views. We enjoyed relaxing on the porch, roasting s'mores around the fire pit, and utilizing the outdoor grill. Overall, it was a great stay!

Beautiful Home and Locations

  • 5 of 5

My group used this house for a weekend get together, and could not have been more please. The owner was very accommodating and flexible with requests and questions. The grounds and house are great, and the location was perfect. It is very isolated, yet there is easy access to stores down the road as needed; in addition, the close proximity to Alexandria Bay is a big plus.

I would recommend this home to anyone, and hope to stay there again some time.

Owner's Response: Jay, when you mentioned a bachelor party in our initial correspondence, I was somewhat cautious. As we emailed through questions and answers I felt good about my decision. And I was pleased to see that your weekend went well and was enjoyed by all. Thank you to everyone for leaving the property clean and using the recycling bins. Kelly

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

What a Great Place on the St. Lawrence River... We were greeted by Kelly upon arrival and shown the ropes. From there the (7) of us and our Lab enjoyed the waterfront home in every aspect possible. It was clean and fully stocked with everything necessary in the kitchen. We fished from the dock, the bay and the river and had very good success. We used the spacious side yard and deck everyday and wished we could have stayed much longer. We hope to stay for a week next year too...

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

I have to say we were a bit nervous as this was the first time we have rented a home on vacation but we were nothing but pleased when we got there. The home accommodated our party of 9 and 2 dogs very comfortably. The view from the deck is absolutely beautiful and fishing off the dock was excellent. You are close enough to enjoy the activities and attractions nearby but if you just want some peace and quiet you can just stay home and enjoy your view from the deck. The owner was easily accessible when we had any questions about the property. We had such a good time we look forward to returning to 1000 Islands and staying here again.

Car: recommended

Boldt Castle is just one of two large gilded age castle's in the area, and after it's 20-something year restoration it is beyond magnificent! A must see, tour boats run daily to both locations. Also there are several state parks most within 15 minutes of the home, one is a roughly 20 minute (very scenic, relaxing) walk away. One of my favorite places to take my family is the local drive-in movie theater, open 7 days a week and offers the newest movies released (changing every week) the same great movies you'd see in the regular theater for a fraction of the price, and a great way to make your vacation one the kids will never forget, located 5 minutes away by car. The river is also well known for it's variety of shipwrecks for those who are coming up to do some diving. And of course there's the fishing. If that's why your coming up here I need not explain how wonderful the area is for fishing, for those who are thinking about bringing a pole, the 1000 island region is known as one of the best fishing destinations in the entire country and it's reputation is well deserved!
