We were interested in taking a tour of the 1000 Islands but found the hotels in the area rather pricey. We wanted a room by the water and happened to come across the horseblock point website. Thought we would give it a try since the price was right...and it exceeded our expectations. We booked cottage #1, which overlooked the lake. The cottage has a deck that is by the water- a great place to have dinner and a glass of wine. The calm peaceful atmosphere was just what the doctor ordered. There is a bar b q near the cottage that is available for use and a small kitchenette in the cottage., so we didn't have to worry about eating out. We went a few years ago so I'm not sure if there are any changes, but we were told to bring drinking water because the water that was piped into the cottages was not filtered. It was perfectly fine to bathe in. There is no a/c but there were fans that cooled us down. Steve and Jayne (our hosts ) were very kind and helpful. We enjoyed everything about this getaway, including the 1000 Islands boat tour. Would not hesitate to go back.
