This is a wonderful location on the St Lawrence. The covered boat house was a plus to get our boat out of the wind / weather. The owner is super nice and lends a hand when needed. It was great we could bring our dog. The sandy beach areas in the surrounding coves and closeness to Leek / Thwartway Island are a plus. The island is beautiful and we enjoyed walking the trails. The kids loved fishing and playing in the bay.
I don’t like to give bad reviews but feel the need to make other potential renters aware of the condition of the house. It was just not clean. Major cobwebs hanging from fixtures, very dirty windows, mouse droppings around and on the furniture. The shop vac was not easy to use to do the floors and furniture although my friend gave it her best effort. The deck is great but it has not been maintained and there are several scary soft spots in the wood. The deck lounge chairs need to be replaced. The propane grill has seen better days. Renters before us did not pick up after their dogs. There was a bug problem, owner says water bugs, I say wood cockroach nymphs and they were in just about every room in the house. Yes, this is a house on an island in the woods - I expect an occasional critter but this was above my level of tolerance. My suggestion to the owner is to do needed maintenance on the deck and amenities, enforce pet cleanup or charge a dog fee and charge a cleaning fee for a cleaning service to come in. Engage a pest control company.
This could be a great property if there is a major effort to clean and maintain it. We thank the owner but would not recommend renting the house in the current condition.
We had amazing two weeks in this property. The island has lots of roads and trails for hiking/walking and for mountain biking. Potters Beach is at a walking distance and it was a treat to go there and swim before going back. The beach is about 7 minutes by boat. We used two kayaks that the owners had for the visitors to get to the swim platform. We were lucky to have hot weather for swimming. The house has a great view from every window and a porch facing the bay with a view at the channel at a distance. We enjoyed spending time there, which was something new to our always on the go family. My brother-in-law, a grandmaster, spent a week with us on the island and won US Open in Chess a few days after he got back. He believes this vacation let him get the rest he needed before the big tournament. This year’s vacation at Grindstone Island turned out to be special for all of us. As a side note, if you are renting from Fran, ask to see her pearl necklace collection.
We enjoyed our stay and found the home to be very spacious and comfortable. Plenty of space for everyone to gather together or have privacy when needed. The home was very well stocked with all the necessities. We loved having the boat house and private bay. The hikes on the trails were enjoyable and found the store on the island to be very cute. Kids wished she stocked candy though.
Our disappointment - we felt the home could have been cleaner when it came to the windows, light fixtures and rafters. With the new products for washing windows we felt they could have been cleaner. We found bugs and spiders in the beds almost daily and some of us ended up with many bites. The light fixtures had cob webs and dust hanging down and at night when you turned the lights on for reading or something there were bugs swarming all over. I understand being out in nature you do come across this but being in a house I would think not to the extent we experienced.
I would also like to make a suggestion to move the fire pit to the other side near the water. Where it is located now, it was difficult to have everyone around the fire. The one side near the water you could not put chairs and the ground was uneven in other spots and with the longer grass it was very buggy.
We enjoyed ourselves very much and Fran was very nice and accommodating. We also loved that we could bring our dogs and they enjoyed the vacation very much.
I stayed at Fran's rental this past summer and had an amazing time. They have a fun swimming dock, and great kitchen for cooking dinners. There is only one other house on the bay so it was much more private than many of the other places. This is a great place for a family vacation.
i loved my stay at buck bay
the house is spacious
and the property is beautiful
i'm looking forward to the next visit!!!
I had 4 amazing days with 7 of my best friends over Labor day weekend. The space was perfect for dinner parties and lounging. The space was perfectly set up and very comfortable and clean. We sailed, kayaked, hiked, swam up a storm. Looking forward to next year!
