Reconnect with yourselves and nature in a Safari style tent furnished with a queen size bed and outdoor amenities. This sweet escape is a once in a lifetime experience you will remember forever.
This listing is a bit less glamorous than the last one. Your rental fee of $200 per night basically gives you access to camp on the quarter of an acre island with some upgraded amenities. There is no wifi, power, or plumbing, but you can get phone service.
Unique outdoor accommodations on a 1/4 acre private island. The entire property is solely yours to enjoy. Our campsite is off-the-grid which means there is no access to electricity, wifi, or modern plumbing. But there is a very cozy-looking tent structure to provide shelter from the elements and it even has a real bed.
During your stay, you will be provided with a canoe and 2 kayaks. You'll also receive linens and water when you check in, along with food and a beverage cooler. There is a hot water shower, a grill, a propane fire pit, and a wood fire pit. As far as the toilet facilities, be prepared to use a waste bag. This island isn't for those looking for luxury, but rather those looking to connect with nature.

Located in Clayton, this rental is in the northwest area of New York State. This 4.68-star rated island is near the Thousand Islands. It is available for $211 per night and can sleep up to eight guests. The island is only accessible by boat, so you must book a boat or water taxi service separately. The unit has a full-sized kitchen, two bedrooms and one bathroom with a new walk-in shower. There is a deck with a grill, table and chairs, as well as a gravel patio for guests to enjoy the great outdoors. If you love water activities, there are three kayaks and two canoes available.
