My husband and I have travelled to the Thousand Islands on several occasions and have found a lack of B&B, boutique hotels and vacation rentals for such a beautiful and expansive area. We stumbled across this property searching the web and decided to book. The property was exactly as advertised. The kitchenette was fully equipped and provided everything needed, including glasses etc. The addition of having laundry in the suite came in handy. The personal booking process was easy and Peter (the owner) was prompt in responding. Upon arrival we made ourselves at home in our suite and later caught up with Peter to finalize payment etc . We were interested in renting a Sea Doo and Peter knew exactly who to put us in touch with. We stayed in the lower suite. The large picture window provided a nice view of the river/1000 islands and it was nice to have the patio area available to us outside which we found very private. In comparison, the upper suite had a large deck and being higher had fantastic views. In addition to table chairs and umbrella it also had lounge chairs. Though the lower suite was great I would recommend the upper if you have a choice in availability.
The only thing not provided is bath soap, shampoo etc. so remember to bring your own.

The area of Ivy Lea is quiet and picturesque. What we enjoyed most was the location of the property just a stones throw from the river. There is a restaurant (Smugglers Run) only a minutes walk across the street. It has amazing views of the St. Lawrence river and 1000 islands. The patio is expansive on two sides of the property. Open 11am to 11pm though does close earlier if it is quiet. The restaurant changed ownership this year and unfortunately the food quality is below the standard that the previous owner/chef produced. It is however convenient being so close to the property and you cannot beat the views from the patio. If in search of a fantastic meal check out the Ivy Lea Club Restaurant about 2km down the road.

Thank you Peter for everything. We will not hesitate to stay again when we return to this area.

“Beautiful view - Cosy suite”
Reviewed 14 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Ivy Lea suites. The suite had every thing we needed, nicely decorated and very clean. The best part was the great view from our suite of the St-Laurence river and the Islands. The suite is located at about a 10 min drive to Ganacoque which is a beautiful area to visit. We will come back again that is for sure!
