Local Information

The 1000 Islands is an international destination for natural beauty, wildlife, fresh water lakes, St Lawrence river cruises, theatre, cycling, local breweries and cuisine. The residency is located just down the road from Charleston Lake, where you can swim, canoe, and hike trails on the rugged Canadian Shield. The studio is on a multi acre property, with plenty of quiet and privacy. Our closest neighbours are acres away. The house is a spacious century home and the studio is only 50 feet away in a separate building. With no light pollution, you can see the Milky Way on a clear night.
