USA: The Thousand Islands – A Journey of Discovery along the US-Canadian Border

A thousand breathtakingly beautiful islands are waiting to be discovered. Private Island News embarks on a journey of discovery, presenting the very best of the 1000 Island region.

Long before the likes of Aspen and the Hamptons became the playgrounds of the rich and the famous, the Thousand Islands were the place to see and be seen in the United States of America. Located in Upstate New York and straddling the U.S.-Canadian Border, the islands have hosted a veritable roll call of famous names over the years and continue to offer a wholesome charm and a stunning sense of natural beauty that we’re sure you’ll just love exploring.

And the best of it? Amongst European visitors at least, the 1000 Islands region remains relatively unknown,  meaning if you’re looking for an all new American adventure away from the traditional tourist traps of NYC, LA and Florida – you’re in for a treat. But with an estimated 1,864 islands and islets at your disposal, it’s hard to know where to start.

Luckily for you, however, Private Island News is on hand with an overview of the region’s very best attractions – from the most pristine private islands, to towering castles and beyond.

Singer Castle on Dark Island

Perfect for those who dream of being the king or queen of a fairy tale castle, Singer Castle on Dark Island can be found smack bang in the center of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Guests can choose to stay overnight in Singer’s one and only accommodation suite, or alternatively simply take a tour of the castle and its grounds. The island is available from May to October, when the St. Lawrence is free of ice and the gorgeous traditional gardens are in full bloom.

Boldt Castle

Intended to be the most romantic Valentine’s Day present of all time, the island was developed by wealthy hotelier George Boldt in 1900. No expense was spared – the island’s shoreline was molded to resemble a heart and a 100-room castle was constructed, all with the aim of impressing his one true love. A happy ending was not in sight, and the project was abandoned and left to rot until 1977 when the castle was finally restored to its original opulent state.
