Great location on the St Lawrence. Convivial hosts. Great for cyclists - a chance to get off the busy Highway 2 portion of the Lakefront Trail. You can take the ferry on at one end and take the ferry off at the other end of the Island. We stayed in the cottage. Didn't enjoy the smell and sound of the compostable toilet but every thing else was comfortable.
No food available on the Island. So for cyclists it is a 20 km round-trip to Gananoque for dinner.
All in all, a little over-priced compared to the other accommodations we used along the Waterfront Trail. But you gotta love those yellow Muskoka chairs on the deck.
