About NATE DENVER
Our first summer at Thousand Island Park began in 1958. My parents, our dog and me, were all crammed into our station wagon, along with bedding, towels, boxes of food, kitchen utensils, and a vast array of home furnishings. The drive from Syracuse seemed endless. As Dad pulled the car up to the front entrance, i climbed out of the back seat and was awestruck looking up at this wonderful Victorian house. It was love at first sight, and a new River Rat was born. I grew up spending summers here and then have been fortunate to have my sons come every summer and now their children come to swim, play in the park and make new friends.
NATE DENVER purchased this cottage in 1958
Why NATE DENVER chose Thousand Island Park
The Park has a mystical hold on many of us who have such good memories of times past. Each year provides a new opportunity to reconnect with 'summer friends', share time with invited visitors who've heard me talk endlessly of the wonderful times at The Islands. And always The River is there to calm my soul and nourish my being. The Children's Park is just down the street toward the River with sand play, climbing structures, swings, see/saw, swings, a circle spin, and a tall pole with handles to run and spin around the pole.
What makes this cottage unique
It is an easy drive to Canada or the mainland for 'touristy' activities. You can visit Clayton or Alex Bay for local shops and ware. There is now a large Price Chopper just before the Bridge, as well as grocery stores on Rt.12 on the road to either Clayton or Alexandria Bay. For personal time you cannot beat the front porch. The screens allow for bug free conversations, games, and meals. The lot behind the cottage keeps your car close by and allows a more pleasurable view of the front yard. Look down the street to the River and watch the Ships go by. The Main Dock has Coffee and homemade scones to purchase and then sit and relax at the River's edge or up on the Pavilion. Bicycles and kayaks are for rent.
