Closed for winter (already!) 1000 Islands! Family-based cottage rentals (NO parties)! !! Set back from the water but still offering waterfront access with 2 docks and boat launches, we offer off-grid living, space for your family, private firepit & BBQ, a large sand volleyball court & more.

The space

Closed for (URL HIDDEN) Lawrence River waterfront at our island retreat!! Please note that HST is included in our rate.

Experience off-grid living while staying at our property, just 10 minutes to Gananoque or 30 to Kingston, as our electrical needs are supported by solar, wind & propane generators. Have a boat? We have 2 launches & docks to accommodate it, with a depth of about 4-5 feet.

Keep active while you're away! Take a stroll down our magnificent semi-private drive. Play volleyball or badminton in our newly built sand court with a sod wall (to keep the nesting turtles out). Or just relax on our large waterside deck, while soaking up the sun and splashing in the water (if you're squeamish, wear water shoes!).

2 bedrooms with 6 beds combined, located upstairs. 2 full bathrooms. Small but full galley kitchen, equipped with gas stove & eating nook. Sliding doors to backyard! Balcony off 1 bedroom.

Guest access

You'll have full access to the entire cottage, the volleyball/badminton court & both docks.

Interaction with guests

We live on the property but stay busy working. Happy to answer questions or address concerns.

Other things to note

Our nightly rate is actually $266, but with HST it becomes $300.

We stayed at the red cottage. It is a great place for a getaway. Beautiful waterfront, clean rooms and a decent cottage overall with everything one would need to have a good time. And as far as the hosts, Courtney and Chris, what can I say? Truly lovely and very friendly people. They genuinely care that their guests have an amazing time. The boat ride around the islands was the icing on the cake. Chris is a fantastic guide explaining every little island in detail. It's been nothing but a pleasurable couple of days. Highly recommended.

Courtney and Chris were great hosts! They were there to greet us when we arrived and made our stay very welcoming. The house was well thought out and very comfortable. The kitchen was small yet efficient. They provide a great grill as well. We comfortably slept four adults and three children in the two rooms provided. The grounds are very spacious. Access to the river is easy. They provided all types of equipment such as kayaks, life vests even bicycles. They were very thoughtful hosts and provided books and toys that were age appropriate for our children. A really nice warm touch. We would highly recommend this house. It provided the quiet escape from the city that our family needed.

Great place ! Off the grid, perfect to disconnect from everything ! The house is big, with all you need to enjoy your stay. The hosts are very accomodating and super nice. They live in the house nearby. The river is at the end of the yard, and the view of the stars at night is amazing. We definitely recommend the place and we'd love to come back if we have a chance.

As the parents of 2 adventurous kids, we are busy & involved in many activities nearby.
Our retreat is at the end of a tree covered gravel road, only 10 minutes to Gan or 30 to Kingston. Have a boat? Launch and dock it here...or let us take you out.
While we're new to hosting on Airbnb, we love to share our cottages and meet new people. We want your stay on the island to be an enjoyable experience that will keep you coming back for years.
