   5/5 Perfect Family Retreat This property is beautiful and exactly as advertised. It is spacious and clean with everything you would ever need. We only went out one night because it was easier to stay in and everything we needed to cook was at our disposal. Plenty of room for boats and the surroundings are very bucolic. Just a 15 minute walk into town. Highly recommend and looking forward to staying again next year, 7/26/2021 at 6:44 PM

   5/5 Excellent experience! The property was all and more of what was advertised. Very clean, spacious inside and out, and a load of amenities. Property owner was very helpful and always available by text or phone if necessary. We did not need a lot of contact with the owner. They really laid everything out nicely. Accessibility to downtown Alexandria Bay was super easy. Take a boat, five-minute ride by vehicle, or a very nice 15-minute walk into downtown! Would highly recommend this property! 7/8/2021 at 5:37 PM

Great Relaxing Alex Bay 5/5   Stayed Aug 2020 Michael M. Booked on Vrbo Despite the craziness of 2020, we had great relaxing week at Paul's Carnegie Bay house. The home had everything we need for my family to enjoy our week away. An A plus property. Published Aug 29, 2020

Amazing property and location! Secluded enough for quiet but close enough for a walk into Alex Bay. 5/5   Stayed Aug 2019 Matt C. Booked on Vrbo The overall experience was perfect. Couldn’t have gone better. Kayaks on site for use as well with all the necessary amenities to make you feel like you are at home, if not even an improved home! A++ Published Aug 12, 2019  

Beautiful! 5/5   Stayed Aug 2019   Booked on Vrbo I can't say enough about Carnegie Bay Cottage. The home was beautiful, clean, and very well appointed. Perfect location and close to everywhere you want to go. Pride of ownership shows in this home. Melody was a dream; so helpful in every possible way - from suggestions on where to eat, what to see, and where the best swimming spots are. We would definitely stay again! Published Aug 10, 2019

Perfect Vacation and Great Experience 5/5   Stayed Jul 2019 Jean M. Booked on Vrbo This property is not your typical "cottage", but a beautiful house. This home was everything that was advertised and more. This was the first time that I had rented a home for a family vacation, and I was extremely pleased with the entire experience. The home was very comfortable, and there was plenty of space for the 8 of us. It could easily accommodate 12 as advertised. The back deck was the perfect spot to relax and enjoy morning coffee and a glass of wine later in the day. The property manager/caretaker and owner were very easy to deal with. The property owner even called me to check in and make sure that everything was good. You can tell that the owner takes great pride in his property. I would certainly rent this property again and certainly recommend this house to others. 5Stars!!! Published Aug 16, 2019

Big house on the river 5/5   Stayed Jun 2019 Stewart S. Booked on Vrbo The house is clean and modern with a spacious living and dining room. The kitchen is incredibly well equipped with all manner of pots, pans, coffee makers, containers, and gadgets. The back lawn has plenty of room for games. The location is a narrow bay off the river which allows for easy docking of a boat. The owner was eager to make our week-long stay pleasant and enjoyable. Published Jul 16, 2019

Wonderful accomodations and attention to detail! 5/5   Stayed Aug 2018 Patrick S. Booked on Vrbo We had seven people staying for four nights (four adults, three children) and the house was great. Every time someone thought we had forgotten something we found it already at the house (coffee filters, BBQ equipment, sandwich griller...). This house is easily accessible to downtown (less than two mile walk), nice bay area for kayaking, fishing off the dock, it is just a nice place all around. Beatiful deck for coffee in the morning, unwinding in the evening. Paul and the caretaker, Melody, were great as well. The house alarm went off the last night we were there and Paul called immediately to make sure everything was OK (which it was, it must have been a glitch in the system). Completely recommend this house if you are looking for a place in or around Alexandria Bay. Published Sep 2, 2018

Beautiful water-front home 5/5   Stayed Aug 2018 Andrew M. Booked on Vrbo Excellent property within walking distance to Alexandria Bay downtown restaurants and shops.

Beautiful Waterfront Property 5/5   Stayed Jul 2018 Rosanne K.   Our family thoroughly enjoyed our week in Alex Bay. We were welcomed upon arrival by the home’s caretaker and provided a tour of the property as well as many suggestions for sight-seeing, grocery shopping, and exploring during our stay. Both the owner and caretaker made themselves available by phone throughout the week to answer questions about the home and area. The home was clean and well-decorated. Kitchen was well-stocked with all necessary utensils to cook and serve our meals. We enjoyed the view through the large windows and from the deck. We were thrilled to find kayaks were available for use and spent hours exploring Carnegie Bay. Just a short drive to several of NY’s state parks where we fished, enjoyed the beach, watched the sunset, and swam in the pool. Overall a very pleasant experience. Published Aug 20, 2018

This house is beautiful! First class!! 5/5   Stayed Jun 2018 Ken Z.   This property is first class and beautiful. It has all the comforts of home. The location is great. It's very close to both town and to a public a boat launch, yet it is remote and quiet. The dock is very sheltered so getting to the main river is quick and easy. The owner is very friendly and easy to work with. This is a great rental, my family was very happy. I would recommend Carnegie Bay to anyone and will not hesiatate to return.
