Own a piece of history in Rockport, Ontario in the 1000 Islands. 1 Baby Tar Island is a century family compound on a private island is just minutes from Rockport and the Golf Club, yet completely private. A Gracious 3 bedroom main house has outstanding glassed veranda with expansive south views across the river. There is also a separate guest house so you can host family and friends comfortably.

 

 

 
Baby Tar Island is a 1.2-acre island off the south side of Tar Island. A 2.12-acre vacant parcel directly behind the island on Tar Island is included with the sale and ensures total privacy for the island and the gorgeous sand beach on the west side bay. The island is 10 minutes by boat from Rockport and less than 5 minutes from the Grenadier Golf and Country Club.
 
 
 
 
The main house, built in the 1920’s, is charming and unspoiled and has a hint of Adirondack style. The wide veranda wraps around 3 sides of the house and has beautiful fir floors. It is enclosed and has several walk-outs to a large deck overlooking the river The south views over the water from the huge veranda / deck are absolutely spectacular. Think: summer evenings on the deck overlooking the river and spring and fall days overlooking the river but cozy within glass walls.
 
 
 
 
The living room has a show-stopping floor to ceiling stone fireplace.  Much of the furniture is original to the house and will be included in the sale. 
 
The updated kitchen is accessed through a fabulous butler’s pantry with lots of built-in shelving and a long serving counter. Off the kitchen are 2 utility rooms. 
 
 
 
 
 
The 2-room master suite includes a bedroom, a morning room, a floor to ceiling stone fireplace, an ensuite bathroom and a walk out to a private porch overlooking the beach.  The second bedroom includes a semi-ensuite bathroom and private, enclosed porch. The semi-ensuite serves as a guest bathroom and the bathroom for the third bedroom.  The third bedroom has an ensuite 2-piece bathroom.  
 
 
 
The guest cottage was originally built as staff quarters. It has now been adapted to a very sweet guest house and includes a sitting room with a porch, a kitchen, a bathroom and 3 bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms have hand basins in them. The third bedroom is large and has a sitting area and a walk-out to a private deck overlooking the water. There is also storage space on the lower level.
 
 
 
 
The boat house is a big, very traditional structure. It is one of the largest on the river. The slips below can accommodate several boats depending on their size. The accommodation above is fabulous. The living room is large and has a beautiful wood mantle. The kitchen is also large and “eat-in”. There are 5 bedrooms, one with a stone fireplace, and 2 bathrooms. Tucked under the end gable at the south end is a charming, hidden away screened porch. A perfect spot to observe the world going by without anyone knowing you are there!

The Canadian 1000 Islands area is one of Canada’s best know, least visited vacation paradises. It is one of Canada’s National Parks, is part of the Ontario Provincial Parks network and is one of UNESCO’s biosphere reserves. Development has been carefully guarded and as a result, the area’s natural beauty has been maintained. Owning an island in The 1000 Islands is very special.
