WELCOME TO SINGER CASTLE where history is more than a time past

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.

Art Showcase and Dinner Cruise 2017!

On June 29th, July 20th, August 3rd, and August 17th Singer Castle on Dark Island will have Art Showcases and Dinner Cruise!

There are only a few days left until this season’s first Art Showcase and Dinner Cruise! Tickets include a cruise from The Heart of the 1000 Islands, Alexandria Bay, to Singer Castle on Dark Island. On the way to the Castle, a fine Italian-style dinner will be provided by Mullin’s Restaurant. Upon arrival to the island, you will receive a guided tour of the castle.

Then admire the work of renowned local artists as they display it throughout the castle. Live music will be provided by David Liddy, a well recognized pianist from the 1000 Islands. On your way back to Alexandria Bay, watch the sunset on the river. All of this is included in the cost of your ticket which is only $73!! Tickets can be purchased by calling (315)324-3275 or here>> at  Do not wait, seats are limited!

We look forward to your visit in 2017!

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 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.
