We rented the 3 bedroom cottage sight unseen, just based on reviews. Very clean and reasonably priced and right on the riverfront is what my little group of college reunion gals were looking for. It was a bit of a gamble, but it really paid off! We stayed 3 nights and we were able to leisurely eat our breakfast, enjoy... More

It was nice to open the door and not have that typical old carpet smell that usually greets you in a Motel. The place was simple and clean, and the owner, Allen was very friendly and informative. My husband and I rented a fishing boat from him for 2 days and had a blast. We will definitely stay again!

It is a small, quaint place. There are about 6 rooms. If you're looking for a very clean place to lay your head, this is the place. It's not fancy but lots of us don't need fancy. There is a pool and the staff is friendly. It's convenient to Clayton, Alexandria Bay or Wellesley Island. I would highly recommend staying... More

Wonderful location near Clayton. Loved the river view. The cottage was a bit dated, but had everything we needed for the week. Watching the fireworks across the river was a great perc. Everything was clean, the cottage and the grounds. Everyone was very friendly.

In this area the majority of the lodging is in motel form ala 1960's. That being said I would rate this property as one the tops in the region. Room was very clean, reception very pleasant. Walls are very thin but that is to be expected in the older motels that are found in this area. I will stay again... More

We stayed a 1 bedroom cottage. The bed is a double so we brought an air bed with us. The cottage is clean but out dated. The bathroom window was rotting and held open with a board. The screened in front porch seemed to have some soft spots under the carpeting. The apartment sized refrigerator that is advertised is actually... More

We stayed at the motel for two nights this past August with our 2 children. The room was clean but very outdated. It's a throwback to the 70s. The old wooden windows were difficult to open and close. The beds were springy and not all that comfortable. My kids were disappointed in the game room (which doubles for the motel... More

My husband and I sure lucked out when a cancellation came up for the 4th of July week on one of the upper cottages. Although this is not a fancy place, it had everything we needed for a week of fishing in the Thousand Islands region. You need to bring your own towels, but bedding and kitchen utensils are provided.... More

“Even if you are only two people, pay the extra money and get a 2 or 3 bedroom cottage. The extra space is worth it. This location is one of the most reasonably priced in the area.”
