Vacation Rentals - 1000 Islands NY
Ernie and Lori's Favorite Places
Part of what makes for a great Thousand Island, NY vacation is in knowing the best places to go in the area when you need "stuff" and/or when you want to step out.  In addition to renting out our places for others to enjoy, we ourselves have been vacationing in the Cape Vincent, NY area for years.  This page helps us to share some of our own personal favorites and hopefully you will like them as well and save you the time that it would take you to find them on your own.
Most of the places listed are also linked directly to their websites and/or directions.
