"Singer Castle is a historic castle on Dark Island in the 1000 Islands region of the St. Lawrence Seaway that was once enjoyed by the wealthy Bourne family -- and it can now be enjoyed by you too! The red-roofed castle was built in the early 1900s and was truly a place where servants were not seen or heard, complete with secret passageways, underground tunnels and two-way paintings. The 28-room villa is set atop a lush hill on a private island, overlooking the St. Lawrence Seaway in Upstate New York, and has one suite for overnight guests to experience a truly one-of-a-kind escape." ---Lori Zimmer.
