About Honey Bee Island
Honey Bee is a beautiful, historic, private island nestled in the very heart of the Thousand Islands (1865 enchanting islands to be precise) which dot the shores of St. Lawrence River and is reachable by boat in eight minutes from the quaint town of Ivy Lea, Ontario and 15 minutes from Boldt Castle.
Set in a tranquil bay, bordered by the St. Lawrence Islands National Park, the newly restored 135 year old hand adzed log cabin enjoys spectacular sunsets and views in all directions. The property is very upscale with your own 2 story, 2 bedroom cabin with all the comfort and amenities of a luxury home, yet on your own private island.
It provides a unique holiday off the beaten track in a charming part of the world, an experience of complete relaxation where you are the master of your own time and space. It is the perfect remedy for anyone seeking adventure and escape with utter privacy without isolation.
The river is lovely for swimming, with summer water temperatures usually in the mid 70s as there are several natural underwater warm water springs near the dock. Our protected shallower areas enjoy water so clear you would think that you were swimming in an aquarium.
A canoe and numerous water toys such as swim floats, water tube floats and an assortment of life jackets are provided. Jet Skis, kayaks are available for rent nearby for our guests' enjoyment. Paddle your own kayak through wilderness routes in the nearby wildlife refuge or fish in a world class angler's paradise on this huge body of water.
This is a wonderful spot to sit and watch the drama of an approaching storm across the water, snug in the floor to ceiling screened porch. The Cabin is tucked away under the trees where one is woken by songbirds where you can watch the sunrise over Hill Island while having a first cup of coffee out on the deck. At night through the open screened windows, listening to the water lapping on the rocks makes for a restful sleep.
Relaxing on your own Island, it's just ..ahhhhhhhh!
Yet, all conveniences are just minutes away. Supermarkets, restaurants, liquor stores, the post office, churches, the pharmacy, just everything including a hospital is available within minutes directly by boat to their respective docks or by car.
