The Gem of the River - Grandest Island Mansion - Please look at more pictures at our other at www.cherry-island.com. This home is featured on the cover of a new book of 1000 Island homes called :The Summer Cottage: Retreats of the 1000 Islands.
Casablanca is only available a few times each summer, it is our family home and we fill it up often. We do open the island for Fund Raiser tours by the Alexandria Bay Historical Society. Check dates at http://alexandriahistorical.com/
Casablanca was completed in 1896 and we are the third family to take care of it. In 1961 my parents bought the home and kept the history. Most of the furniture is original and our guests feel like they are stepping back in time.
The home comes compete with everything you will need for a fantastic stay. From satellite TV, WI-FI, full kitchen and grills, lawn games and equipment, fire pit with cut wood, swim rafts and fishing tackle, stand up paddle-boards and kayaks and canoes and sailboats, all set up for your use.
f we don't have it we can arrange for you to get it, whatever you need to make this the greatest vacation, reunion, wedding or event ever.
Please check out our Facebook page (CHERRY ISLAND) for pictures and videos of other guest. https://www.facebook.com/Cherry-Island-360727504007793/
We have lived here for almost 60 years and and look forward to showing you whats so special about Casablanca and The River.
We stayed in the boat house (all was as promised) adjacent to the mansion. A few minutes boat ride from Alex Bay, with mainland parking and dock even closer. Cherry Island, (in the midst of famed "Millionaire's Row") has a total of 5 or 6 houses.....Casa Blanca is all you need as you get to enjoy most of the estate... including a gazebo where you are guarded by the gargoyles overlooking the channel...watch the ships pass by. Phil & Nancy are gracious, helpful hosts and while away one eve, offered their "big house" porch so we could enjoy the sunset....unforgettable! Boathouse has dock, paddle boards, kayaks, a canoe, floating tubes, fishing rods, plus a gas grill for your use...also enjoyed P&N's yacht for sunning, diving and socializing. View from dock = overlooking 3 or 4 more mansions on the mainland. Advice: JUST DO IT! ......would definitely recommend to friends.....we will be back.
