“A beauty.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

The tragic love story does not overshadow the loveliness of this treasure. A walk around the grounds to view the well kept flowers and trees and vistas across the river. The building is finally getting the care and restoration it deserved, and I look forward to a return visit to see the lasted restorations. The boat ride to and from the island via 1000 Islands Boat Tours from Gananoque was great.

“If you love old boats this is your place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

A wonderful place to visit if you like old boats. The collection of boats in and outside of the yacht house are outstanding. The entrance fee also includes a boat ride to the yacht house, a visit to the reception room and the caretakers apartment.
