Thousand Island Park is a private resort community located on Wellesley Island, NY, in the heart of the Thousand Island Region. The second largest island in the region is accessible via suspension bridge that spans the St. Lawrence River.
This private, spacious cottage, nestled at the edge of the woods in the top of the park, accommodates up to 10 in 5.5 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Four bedrooms upstairs, each with a queen size bed, dresser, and cottage quilts have access to the front and rear balconies from each room. There is also a pull out sofa in the upstairs hall. Downstairs is the Master Bedroom with king size bed, dresser, and sliding glass door to the 360 wrap-around deck. The half bedroom in back has one twin bed, and a second refrigerator. The open concept living room, dining room, and kitchen are all updated with new sofas, new refrigerator, new stove, new microwave, and new dishwasher. The dining table can seat 10, with a four stool island adjacent for overflow seating. A screened-in porch off the dining room is the perfect place to relax on a warm summer's evening, or for morning coffee. Outdoor seating includes an umbrella covered table for four and a picnic table that can seat six. Gas Grill onsite. The cottage is 5 minute walk to the river. Ample parking onsite, adjacent to the cottage, is available for all guests.
Thousand Island Park offers many convenient amenities: the hotel holds a restaurant and pub, as well as gift shops; there is a post office, security office, historical society office, pottery shop, antiques shop, library, playground, and ice cream pop-up shop; all in the main square. The historical Tabernacle hosts movies Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, many kid-friendly, and church services on Sundays. Kayak and paddle boat rentals are available at the "main dock" and pavilion. Coffee is available at the gas dock cafe. Yoga classes are held Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in July and August at the pavilion, walk-ins welcome! Entering the park you will pass the "swimming cove" that is open to park residents and guests. Easy access to the water via staircase and plenty of sand for the kids to play in. There are several hiking trails that wind through the woods behind the cottage. Just outside of the park is a 9-hole golf course, easily walked, or with carts available. Also on the island are two additional 18-hole courses, just a short drive
In-season rentals are available weekly or monthly: June, July, and August. Inquire via email for off-season rates, including weekend rentals. The Thousand Island Region is beautiful year round, but amenities on the island are only available Memorial Day thru Labor Day. Cottage is available for rental into mid-October when you can enjoy all the fall foliage!
While you're here, plan to visit the magical Boldt Castle on Heart Island, just outside Alexandria Bay, a 15 minute drive from the cottage. Alex Bay is fun small town of gift shops, restaurants, and bars, right on the St. Lawrence. Clayton, NY is also a great village to spend the day shopping, and is home to the famous "River Rat Cheese" shop. Or sample the region's wine at several area vineyards.+ More
