Portion of title Retreats of the Thousand Islands
Abstract The Summer Cottage captures the charm of island living and waterfront houses, featuring the cottages and summer estates of the Thousand Island region, an archipelago of nearly two thousand islands in the St. Lawrence River between the U.S. and Canadian borders of New York and Ontario. Stunning beauty and quiet majesty mark the landscape encompassing this mighty river and its forested islands, on which are set the summer retreats that are so richly photographed here. Boathouses, riverside porches open to fresh air and nature, gardens, and wonderful rooms that welcome the visitor are hallmarks of these homes. Featured are examples of the most charming and inspiring houses of the region, which range in style from Eastlake and Queen Anne to Arts and Crafts. These homes invite the viewer to share in the spirit of romance of a bygone age, which, fortunately for us--in these houses--has not yet slipped by.
