The Boateak Arial
The Boateak is located in a renovated boat house that was built on Bluff Island in 1900 by Col. Kessler. In 1982, a former servants' quarters above the boathouse was ripped apart by 95 mph winds during a thunderous April storm. During the rebuilding process Cookie and Matt discovered that the peaked roof over the boat slips was large enough to accommodate a studio, presenting an opportunity to combine a love of art with their love of the 1000 Islands Region. The unique quality of the 1000 Islands to attract visitors from all over the world provides a marvelous opportunity for artists and craftsmen to gain wide exposure for their works. The Boateak has attracted travelers from France, Italy, Germany, Africa, and throughout the United States and Canada.
