Incredibly accommodating hostess, Sam. Unforgettable meals and conversation. Well situated old Victorian mansions with interesting artifacts. Walk to town and around. People who choose to stay here are very interesting. Good value.

Being that this was our first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast we weren't sure what to expect. Needless to say, after two nights away in Alexandria Bay we can't wait to go back and visit Sam and her wonderful home! We were greeted upon arrival by Sam (the owner), given a brief tour of the house and immediately...

We came up for a quick escape, it happened to be Blues by the Bay weekend. The Captain Visger house was the place to stay. It was exactly what we wanted. Clean, welcoming, great location and a wonderful breakfast. We stayed in Lavina's Retreat, four windows made the room airy and comfortable. Sam was a welcoming and warm hearted hostess....

The Visger House is run by Sam, surely short for Samantha, who is this creative gourmet chef, hosteling her guests. She is happy in talk and energy but unbelievable in efficiency growing her own Swiss chard and stewing her rhubarb for tomorrow''s breakfast. She operates the finest dining in Alex Bay which she jokes is no compliment because no where...

My husband and I recently stayed at Captain Visger Bed and Breakfast. It was absolutely wonderful. The room (captains suite) was beautiful, comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were amazing. Sam, the innkeeper was terrific. She was knowledgeable of everything going on in the area, recommended great restaurants and made our stay perfect. I highly recommend this B and B if...

We had just 3 days to spend in the 1000 Islands - stayed at this wonderful B&B, very happy with our choice! Sam made us comfortable from the start, and did a wonderful job with unique breakfasts each day. She also had great recommendations for things to do and "must see" items while we were there. Would definitely recommend!

Our two night stay at the Captain Visger House was phenomenal. Sam made our stay by providing wonder breakfast, great directions, and a tremendous strategy how to use our limited time wisely. I had the best oatmeal ever. Everything is fresh from the almond milk that Sam makes to the roasted pumpkin seeds and herbs that she grows. Wow what...

We agree with all the positives mentioned in other reviews here. We've stayed in many B&Bs and Sam is one of the most effective proprietors we've ever encountered. The whole stay was characterized by calm and comfort, and by lavish, fresh and delicious breakfasts (we were hardly hungry for lunch before mid-afternoon; these were the best meals we ate in...

The Thousand Islands Region is "HOME" to me... many happy memories of my mom's hometown of Ogdensburg NY on the St. Lawrence. Visiting the area on our yearly trip for northern pike fishing in Clayton, we decided to stay at Captain Visger House (5 of us, including 11 yr. old grandson). I love old houses (built in 1850s), and this...
