My sisters and I spent my birthday bicycling and kayaking with the Maple Grove apartment as our "home base." We walked into the village of Cape Vincent for breakfast and dinner; we purchased specialty coffee for enjoying in our apartment full kitchen. The ferry was minutes away and we took our Jeep to Wolfe Island and Big Sandy Beach. The apartment layout was lovely, the linens were exceptional; the space was light, airy and quiet. Our private deck was serene. It was the perfect place for a get away that was just as pretty but more quiet than home.

We were fortunate to be able to stay a week at Maple Grove. What a beautiful historic house. The history alone is a reason to visit this majestic home built in 1838. The photos don’t do it justice. The setting for this regal home on the banks of the St. Laurence is so peaceful, the gardens so beautiful. There are many places to sit and relax either inside the house, outside in various areas of the lawn, a bench on the river bank, or our favorite the front porch with its rocking chairs. Its a perfect place to just sit and watch the ships and boats glide by. The hosts Bruce and Lynn Taylor are gracious and welcoming. Breakfast included lively conversation about the area and its history, the sights that are a must see, which restaurants to try and where to shop. We ate breakfast in the large and elegant dining room in the main house. The house is very spacious with various places to sit and relax, the living room, the family room, the screened in porch on the side, or the small deck off the family room We were able to see all the bedrooms of the main house as well. Each has its special charm. Do not miss the opportunity to visit this scenic spot in Cape Vincent and enjoy the 1000 Islands area.

Lynn and Bruce were very gracious and accommodating hosts. The home is just gorgeous and impeccably maintained. The grounds, scenery and overall setting of Maple Grove will transport you back to a simpler time. It's easy to imagine horse drawn carriages pulling up to the house for elegant gatherings, and lazy days spent relaxing on the front porch. Treat yourself to this amazing getaway, right on the Saint Lawrence Seaway. Give Lynn and Bruce the opportunity to exceed your expectations. It's what they do. Many thanks to both of them for a wonderful stay and we look forward to visiting with them again in the future.

Have longed to visit this house with its stately columns, looking across the St. Lawrence to Wolf Island, since I was a child. Visiting, wandering the gardens & grounds in early morning, siting in a rocking chair on the porch looking out to the river, reading in the elegant living room, lively conversation with interesting hosts & guests over a delicious breakfast -- a dream come true!
