Picnic Island is a 1.49 acre, one family island in the Admiralty group of islands in The 1000 Islands. This fantastic cottage has 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms and all the modern conveniences. It has a floating boat port as well as a fixed dock, The Sunset Dock, both of which have good water depth all year long.
The sunset and sunrise views are marvellous. This island property is an ideal family cottage property proven by the fact that it has been in the same family for generations. It is not far from the Town of Gananoque and offers great swimming, kayaking, canoeing and, as it is close to “the 40 acres” is ideal for sailors. The area offers a wide variety of restaurants, The 1000 Islands Playhouse, The Clayton Antique Boat Museum and other great things to do. The island views are gorgeous, the Canadian Shield at its best!
The cottage is 1.5 storeys, with the secluded master suite on the second floor. The main floor consists of an open concept, spacious living room which has a huge floor to ceiling granite heatilator fireplace, pine flooring, beamed ceiling and the dining room overlooking the living room. For those long, hot summer evenings there is a very large screened porch that has a summer dining area at one end. Cocktails have never tasted so good as on this porch while enjoying a beautiful view. There are 3 bedrooms on the main floor, all of which have pine floors, walk-outs to decks and in one of the bedrooms, you will also have access to a 2-piece ensuite washroom.
The kitchen is large, has a center island and a lovely little corner breakfast area overlooking the immaculate waterfront. Apart from the standard fridge, stove, dishwasher and microwave, there is a fabulous wood-fired cook stove with warming oven, a very handy piece in the spring and fall as it can also help warm the entire home. Similar to the other rooms, the floor is pine and the ceiling is beamed. The size and layout of the kitchen is ideal for families to cook and spend quality time together.
The master bedroom is the only room on the second floor. It has windows on 4 sides and a walk-out to the island. There is a lovely 4-piece bathroom and a rough in for a fireplace or wood stove. The views over the river from here are spectacular. This space provides a wonderfully private sanctuary for any couple!
There are many spots on the island to swim from or simply take in the views. The island has a full septic system and, unusual for an island, a well with crystal clean water. The topography is rugged and unspoiled, offering great walks and even greater places to hide in a good game of hide-and-seek!
