Grandma's Retreat

Welcome to Grandma's Getaway, a three bedroom cottage in a quiet corner of the world on Chaumont Bay.  There is a new bathroom and kitchen.  The front room has been totally rebuilt with two patio doors and a picture window.  Sit back and enjoy watching both the sunrise and the sunset. Your patio features table, chairs, and a gas grill.

This quaint cottage is set back from the water and has both shade trees and sunny areas.  There is a climbing space and tug boat sand play for young children near the cottage.  Take a walk out on your sixty foot dock.  The water is shallow and great for small children to play in.  It is rocky so water shoes keep your feet happy.

The kitchen, completed in 2010, contains a stove, refrigerator, no dishwasher, a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, pots and pans, cooking utencils dishes, and silver ware.

The cottage sleeps five and comes furnished with one set of sheets for each bed and one set of towels for each person. There is a queen bed in one room and bunk beds in a small room.  The third bedroom is also small and contains a day bed. There is a TV which has only one to three station in the front room but there is also a VCR.  There are movies, books, and games on the premesis. There is also a TV in the queen bed room.

Water for the cottage is pumped from the bay and is not safe to drink.  If you wish you can boil water for washing dishes. No food, paper products, or water are furnished. There is no washing machine or telephone at the cottage. In May the cottage rents for $550 starting when the water can be put in. The rent for June,July August and September for $750 a week.  A $300 deposit at the time of booking and the remaining $450 upon arrival is required.If the cottage is not rented for the week you may rent it for $120 per night. If you would like to rent it for the month please call. I am sorry but there are no pets allowed.

The cottage is just off the Seaway Trail.  We are about 30 minutes from the heart of the Thousand Islands.  There are boat tours, castles, pirates, battle fields, small museums, and many small winerys with excellent wine all within an hours drive. There is a boat rental place five minutes from the cottage and also a small grocery store.   You are about 20 minutes from a ferry that will take you to Canada and the city of Kingston.  A long day's trip could have you visiting Lake Placid.

Your boat can be launched from the Long Point State Park  which is about a mile up the road.  You may put it in and out each day or rent dock space there. The front of the cottage is too shallow and the wind changes too quickly to leave a boat tied up here over night. Docks are on wheels and a boat will tip them over in a wind. There is also a state boat launch about three miles from the cottage which puts your boat in the lake.  There is also a great bakery across the road. I have small boats at the cottage, but our insurance won't cover them when the cottage is rented. They are racked up and out of your way.

If you are a fisherman there is excellent fishing in the Chaumont Bay, Lake Ontario area.  There are many fishing contests going on during the summer. The most popular fish are perch, small and large mouth bass, pike, and bullheads in season.  If you are a salmon fisher they run in Guffins bay and the Black river which is about a twenty-five minute boat ride across the bay. My granddaughter caught a 22inch large mouth bass off  the dock and what a great smile she had.

Come and enjoy our beautiful corner of the world. Sit back, relax and listen to the quiet sound of the water.  Watch the sunrise and sunset.  Observe the ducks, canadian geese, blue herron, deer, and other animals that stroll by or fly over.  You can see the fish as they swim around the dock because the water is very clear.
