Glorious summer and winter homes.

Whether you are a lifelong Thousand Islands resident, a summers-only visitor or a lucky St. Lawrence River cruise ship passenger, you are bound to recognize many of the grand summer homes and modern American castles featured in this full color keepsake collection.

While photographing Sentinels in the Stream, renowned photographer George Fischer became captivated by the many extraordinary dwellings that rise from the islands and shorelines of this popular vacation region.

In Castles and Cottages, regional historian Anthony Mollica guides readers through these exceptional structures, including:

  • Boldt Castle
  • McNally boathouse
  • Cape Vincent's Tibbetts Point lighthouse
  • George M. Pullman's Castle Rest, visited by President Grant and General Sherman

The Thousand Islands abound in historic and architecturally unique buildings, as well as idyllic cottage retreats. With fascinating insight and gorgeous color photographs, Castles and Cottages reveals the remarkable story of each.
