Singer Castle, Chippewa Bay, New York

Singer Castle is a majestic, 100 year old castle set on Dark Island in the St. Lawrence Seaway.  The castle is a popular tourist attraction with access by boat tours, shuttle boats or private boat.


From the Singer Castle website:


“Singer Castle on Dark Island is open to the public to visitors who wish to have a guided tour of the intricate architecture, beautiful furnishings and puzzling secret passages of our magnificent 100-year old Castle.


Visitors will be greeted by smiling, enthusiastic tour guides sharing the unique history of the “hunting lodge” of Commodore Frederick Gilbert Bourne. The tour guides will provide you with a 45-minute tour and narrative of the historic structure. Visitors will be treated to four floors filled with furnishings and artifacts original to the castle. You will see the entrances to many of the secret passages, and of course speculate on their purpose. There are 80 steps up from the Great Hall, so wear your walking shoes!

Visitors come from as far as Europe and as close as our own backyard of Chippewa Bay, all wanting to experience the mystery and history of the Castle. Plan to make Singer Castle the highlight of your 1000 Islands experience.

You might take the opportunity to be the King of the Castle and stay in our exquisite Royal Suite complete with private modern bath, luxury furnishings and bedding, designer carpeting, and of course, million dollar views of the Canadian sunset and American sunrise.  Package includes private tour, accommodations, and catered dinner and breakfast”.
