Welcome to Cape Vincent – Where the Lake & River Meet

Home to Tibbetts Point Lighthouse Cape Vincent is a classic little river town in the 1000 Islands offering endless views of both the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario.  Visitors can look forward to unique shopping, dining, lodging and recreational experiences from Cedar Point to Snug Harbor.

Downtown Cape Vincent is a one mile stretch along the river lined with a wonderfully diverse set of businesses. From pottery, jewelry, and self care products – all handmade in Cape Vincent, to our produce markets and art gallery, your shopping bags will go home filled with quality products.

When you’re ready for a bite to eat you can find seafood dishes and rice bowls; specialty pizzas; fish fry, burger, taco and prime rib nights. Guaranteed, you will not go hungry!  Multiple locations offer takeout and outdoor dining options to enjoy the scenery.

Our town boasts a very distinct selection of local craft beverages. Recently added to the assortment is Cape Vincent’s very own specialty coffee roaster located at the back of a boutique coffee shop. At the center of downtown the local brewery has just expanded and now offers a great dining experience along with their craft beer. A few minutes from downtown is our award winning winery, a great stop to make while visiting Tibbetts Point Lighthouse.

Lodging options include everything from inns and hotels – some historic, lake and riverside cabins and cottages, to seasonal rentals for all-summer vacationers. Accommodations are available at multiple establishments for year round booking.

Along with our local marinas, docking is available at East End Waterfront Park, and the village dock at Esselstyne Street. Cape Vincent is a wonderful place to fish, boat, dive, hike, bike and wander. With a 20-30 minute drive to Clayton, Alexandria Bay, and Sackets Harbor, Cape Vincent is perfectly located to plan a day trip to all of your favorite 1000 Islands destinations!
