“Where the Lake meets the River” and known as the “Garden of the Great Spirit”

The History: This incredible wonderland of islands, wildlife, fish and game was discovered in the early 1600’s and was known to the natives as the “Garden of The Great Spirit.” This beautiful island is one of the last remaining, wholly owned islands of The Thousand Islands Region in the St. Lawrence River/Lake Ontario area. It was owned for years by the late Governor Horace White who purchased the Island in 1905. The lodge dates back to the turn of the century as well as many of the other support buildings. Fox Island has been a private retreat to governors, senators, politicians and people of notoriety and has been unaccessible to the public, having only 4 owners over the past 100 years. Well known for its magnificent duck hunting and fishing, Fox Island offers something special with the ownership of its own duck marsh, which was obtained from the state of New York in 1906.

The Antiques: This will be a rare opportunity to purchase over 40 pieces of Gustav Stickley furniture in situ at the Fox Island hunting lodge. It was originally ordered for Governor White and three partners who bought four of every piece of bedroom furniture directly from Gustav Stickley in 1905-1910 to furnish the lodge. Included are 3 sets of twin beds, chests, mirrors, chairs, 3 Morris recliners, 2 porch swings, settle bench, etc. An abundance of other important items to be auctioned including artwork and the original leather mail pouch for the island, from the early 1900’s.

Fox Island is located at the Eastern end of Lake Ontario at the headwaters of the St. Lawrence River, where you enter the famous Thousand Islands region. Fox Island offers you peace and tranquility, an escape form the hustle and bustle of every day life. The island is minutes by boat from the mainland, close to Cape Vincent, NY. The village of Cape Vincent is quaint and full of history, dating back to 1615. This area is known for its fantastic fishing. Anglers come from all over the world to fish the St. Lawrence for bass; walleye, pike and muskellunge; in addition to Lake Ontario which is stocked with trout and salmon. All this, literally outside your front door!

Fox Island continues a century old reputation as one of the Northeast’s finest water fowling destinations. Fox Island is over 260 acres of rolling pastures, dense hardwoods and 6 miles of pristine shoreline with deeded native marshes. This insures privacy and manageability for the serious waterfowl or nature enthusiast. There is a resident herd of white tail deer and just recently, several families of wild turkeys have inhabited the island.

The Thousand Islands are easily accessible by boat where one can experience the turn of the century summer mansions and visit the magnificent Boldt Castle.

Air Strip: 3,000 ft. private grass landing strip located on the island.

Renovated lodge (circa 1905) with three native stone fireplaces, 8 bed rooms and 5 baths, large kitchen, formal dining room, living room and game room, wet bar with ice maker, hunting and fishing storage room, and laundry room. The kitchen has a large stove top, 2 ovens, dishwater, microwave, garbage disposal and 2 refrigerators. The Guest House has 4 bedrooms, 1 bath, and kitchen with appliances.
