Located on Just Room Enough Island is this quaint little cottage; the island is touted as one of the smallest (if not THE smallest) islands in the world (the lone tree gives it island status). It was built by the Sizeland family in the 1950s as a weekend getaway.

Just Room Enough is part of the famous Thousand Islands, an archipelago of 1,864 islands that straddles the Canada-U.S. border in the Saint Lawrence River as it emerges from the northeast corner of Lake Ontario. They stretch for about 50 miles (80 km) downstream from Kingston, Ontario. The Canadian islands are in the province of Ontario, the U.S. islands in the state of New York.

Just Room Enough Island is well-known due to its close proximity to Boldt Castle, a popular tourist attraction in the Thousand Islands. To see this place on Google Maps, click here.
