Day 1: Travel to the scenic 1000 Islands, nestled between New York and Canada on a new tour that will showcase the top attractions in the region.

We enjoy a delicious dinner at the hotel before allowing time to take a midnight stroll around the property. (D)
Day 2: Late morning we depart to Chippewa Bay for a cruise to Dark Island, home of Singer Castle. After a refreshing cruise to the island, we arrive at Dark Island where a local guide will educate us about the unique history of the “hunting lodge” of the former President of the Singer Sewing Machine Company. We continue on a cruise up river to Alexandria Bay to enjoy an “Old Fashioned Fisherman Shore Dinner” provided by local fishing guides. This one-of-a-kind experience will entertain you as we enjoy some “fish stories” as well as sumptuous food. We return to our hotel following dinner. (B, D)

The prized possession of the museum is George Boldt’s GildedAge era houseboat built in 1903. We then enjoy a tour and wine tasting at the Thousand Island Winery which is situated along the St. Lawrence River on a 40-acre farmstead. Following lunch on your own, we embark on our final cruise on the Two-Nation Boat Cruise and a self-guided tour of Boldt Castle. We will travel through the waters of both the United States and Canada before arriving at Heart Island and touring Boldt Castle, built at the turn of the century by George Boldt, the millionaire proprietor of the world-famous Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. We return to the Harbor Hotel to enjoy our final dinner and enjoy the hotel’s amenities. (B, D)
