We are located in the 1000 Islands tourist region of southeastern Ontario, Canada. We're 15 minutes west of Brockville, 15 minutes from the 1000 Islands International Bridge, and 25 minutes east of Gananoque.
Other major centres are within an easy drive... Smiths Falls 30 minutes; Ottawa 90 minutes; Syracuse 2 hours; Montreal 2 hours; and Toronto is 3 hours away.
We're minutes away from the St. Lawrence River, Lake Ontario, the Rideau Canal, Charleston Lake, Temperance Lake, Graham Lake, and many lakes.
Pictured at left is the 1000 Islands International Bridge at Ivy Lea, Ontario. We live in a very popular tourist area with many campgrounds, provincial parks, a national park, and lots to see and do, including the 1000 Islands Charity Casino in Gananoque.
Some of the more popular attractions include the boat tours which take tourists for a several hour ride through the Islands, as well as stopping at Boldt Castle on Heart Island.
No shortage of hotels, motels or resorts in our area.
There's also a 50km long paved bicycle path which runs alongside the 1000 Islands Parkway from Brockville to Gananoque. No motorized vehicles are allowed on the path, so it's a perfect place to walk, run, bike or even take a horseback ride.
There are also a number of excellent golf courses in the area.
Our home is located off the beaten path. This is the view down the road from the end of our driveway, just as the sun was coming up one winter morning.
We are surrounded by hundreds of acres of woods and fields, and not too far from a very large conservation area.
We have a large fenced exercise yard, and an additional 5 acres where the dogs love to run and play.
On the right is one of the many friends we feed over the winter months. Below is a list of tourism-related links for the 1000 Islands.
