About the neighbourhood
The Thoroughfare House is located on the upper St. Croix watershed at the confluence of Dead Brook and the Thoroughfare at the head of East Grand Lake. Once located on the south side of Boundary Road, opposite the Customs house. it served as a U.S.inspection station until a new Customs House was built. The lakes are majestic in themselves with an abundance of fish, birds, ducks and other small and large wildlife everywhere. Just bring a camera as there are lots to video in and out of the waters. We have included a 15 hp outboard for your use (if requested). horseshoe pit and a lakeside picnic area. We are aiming for return customers and want to make your vacation here a pleasant one. Thank you for considering the Thoroughfare House for your vacation home. Preston Bonney
