About The Heron House

The historic, circa 1880’s Heron House vacation home is balanced on the edge of the village of Clayton, nestled in the protected French Bay harbor with breathtaking sunset views. Meticulously appointed, lovingly restored to its former, distinctive grandeur, and available for rent year-round.

A short walking distance to all the village has to offer. From unique boutiques, the world-class Antique Boat Museum, fitness facilities, and River Yoga. The area features a diverse restaurant scene from upscale fine dining, to lively brewpubs and outdoor patio venues. Make The Heron House your home while you discover all there is to see and do in the beautiful 1000 Islands, Northern New York.
