The first owner of the miniature island was George C Boldt, a Prussian-born, self-made millionaire hotelier and general manager of the legendary Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City.

Boldt is credited with popularizing the spicy thousand island salad dressing at his hotel after learning the recipe from a local woman during a summer in the bay of Alexandria.

The house, built in 1988, has an office space with views of the St Lawrence River and the surrounding islands

Boldt bought one of the largest of the Thousand Islands for his beloved wife, Louise, turned the land mass into a heart and built a huge castle for her.

On the day that Louise Boldt suddenly died in 1904, her heartbroken husband left the island that now bears his name and never returned.

The following year, Boldt sold nearby Belle Island to his fellow millionaire, Alexander Peacock.

The five-bedroom house that currently adorns the property was built in 1988. The island and residence were last sold in 2016 for $ 950,000.
