About Edwina Kinchington
I am an Educator in secondary education in the City of Pittsburgh. I did cancer research for almost 18 years before becoming a teacher. I love the water - it is in my blood. I was a competitive swimmer in my youth and competed in the 1984 and 1988 US Olympic trials. I love swimming in the St. Lawrence. My husband is also in education as professor at the University of Pittsburgh.
Edwina Kinchington purchased this Cottage in 1959
Why Edwina Kinchington chose Town of Alexandria
Campbell's Linden Cove property was purchased by my Mother and her Father in 1959 as a summer vacation spot. My Mother's family were from Alexandria Bay with the Campbell's (my Mother's maiden name) being doctors in the area. My parents were married in Alexandria Bay and they vacationed here in the late 1950's and 1960's. There had been a large victorian home on the property which became too much to maintain. My parents build the present cottage in 1967 shortly after my sister and I were born. My mother loved this property and we vacationed here more in my older life. My own family (husband, 2 children and dogs) have grown to love the river and the property. Unfortunately, my mother died in 2011. We have made many renovations to the cottage with a brand new kitchen, all new windows, patio enclosure room, 60 ft main channel dock and 30 foot boating dock. We want to keep the property in our family but in order to do that we need to help support the upkeep and taxes which is why we are renting. We hope that you grow to love the property as much as we do.
What makes this Cottage unique
We love dogs and our dogs love the river. We want to allow renters to bring their pets so they can all enjoy it. There are 2 large and secure dog runs on the property if needed. The location of this property is prime waterfront on the Saint Lawrence River. You can safely swim, kayak, boat, fish while watching the lakers go by. We are 1 mile up river from Alexandria Bay, 3 miles from the Bridge. You can sit on the dock and watch the spectacular fireworks at Boldt Castle. There is almost 1 acre of land surrounded by a post and rail fence. The water line is truly amazing with a small island with a bridge. This is one of the most beautiful places in the world and my family has a great deal of heritage here.

Gorgeous location. Neverending views.
This place was exactly like it is billed. Gorgeous location directly on the main channel. The owner provided timely and good communication from the day I booked. The owner was friendly and helpful. The cottage was cozy and clean. Had no issues with anything advertised. Would definitely book again and recommend to a friend!!!
Glad you enjoyed the beautiful river. We welcome you back.
A little piece of heaven on the St Lawrence
My family of four (Wife, myself, two boys in the their early 20's) had a great time at your place. The place was beautifully stocked....very clean....and laid out very nicely. Spent so much time on the dock or the adjacent island soaking up the sun and enjoying the river breeze. We used the fire pit almost every night and did a lot of fishing. Took time off exploring the castles and visiting the nearby towns. A great week of relaxation at a wonderful place. Thanx so much for the opportunity. Edwina should be proud to have such a lovely place to share with others.
Very glad you enjoyed the cottage with your older children. It is a remarkable spot that can be enjoyed by all ages! Thanks for choosing us!
Look no further.
This is the place. Comfortable cottage, amazing grounds, freighters so close you can wave to the people on board, and a view to die for. Just spent a week here and can't wait to go back. Perfect in every way and Edwina was wonderful to work with, very attentive and good communication. Thank you for sharing this beautiful gem on the St. Lawrence!
We all had a lovely time and would book again. A beautiful setting and close to all activities. Very comfortable. Loved the fact that we didn't need to bring much since all towels and sheets etc were provided. Many other little extras too. Sat by camp fire (wood provided) and watched the ships go by. Fun!
The cottage was perfect for our needs. Seeing the ships practically on the dock was amazing. Winnie loved chasing the chippies. The cottage was quaint and well appointed. The Thousand Islands area is full of history, well worth a second visit!
Glad you enjoyed your visit. While October is late in the season the weather was mild and water still warm. Some restaurants have more limited service but October is a beautiful time at the river. Thank you.
Couldn't have asked for a more relaxing place! Edwina was very helpful and always able to be reached.
