Have stayed here a number of times. As always, greeted by very friendly employees. They offer regular rooms, efficiency rooms and cottages, absolutely lovely view of the St Lawrence and close to Prescott and Brockville. The accommodations are very clean and well kept. Cottages are cozy with fireplace, fridge, stove, microwave, toaster, pots, plates, etc. This is a lovely place...

We loved everything about this wonderful little hide away. Cutest cottage right on the river. Bbq and full kitchen which we enjoyed as we love to cook. View so peaceful. Seen the ships go by too. No complaints at all.

We only had one night but were we ever impressed with the versatility, affordability, and kindness of the manager. Our family of 12 fit nicely into the warm and welcoming dining room for breakfast. It felt like home. We will definitely return during the summer to enjoy the beautiful location right in the St Lawerence River.

In October my wife and I returned to Dewar's Inn on the River. We stayed at the Sante Fe a western themed cottage. Although the Inn is under new ownership, the quality of the service is still high. So long as it is maintained we will continue to visit. The Inn is aimed at a more mature clientele. We love...

This place is a landmark facility of rooms and cabins set along the St Lawrence Seaway and 1000 Islands. We can certainly call it vintage. So don't expect slick, although the washroom fixtures in our room were clean and shiny. Expect to be treated like family by the staff and to have a fantastic view that neighbors pay millions for....

The place was charming and reasonably priced but the staff were not at all helpful. We had a simple request and even offered to pay extra for it, even though it wouldn't have cost them anything or taken any time, but they refused to even consider any options that might have helped us out. The bedroom, especially the bed, smelled...

Since I last reviewed this motel, we have revisited it several times, including 3 times in 2016. It is the best deal in our travels across eastern Canada. In early September 2016 , we stayed for 2 consecutive days and got a closer look at its operation, as well as the local birds. One can use superlatives at every aspect....

We stayed in one of the cabins on the river and it was immaculate. It was also well equipped. These brick cabins are right on the river and they have a nice view from their deck. Above all the owner and other workers there are exceptionally helpful and really nice people. You can tell that they have real ownership in...

When you drive up, you see the back of the hotel and wonder...why did this get great reviews on Tripadvisor? The building could use a fresh coat of paint and it makes it look a little warn. But then you walk around to the front and discover a beautiful gardens, dock and outstanding view of the St. Lawrence River! The...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
DEWAR'S INN ON THE RIVER An adult-oriented property, (sorry no children under 12), known internationally for solitude, beauty and cleanliness, Our "no-noise" policy ensures a quiet stay for our guest - day or night. The Inn caters to an adult clientele and has been a true labour of love for Paul. Extensively renovated, the motel & cottages offer uniqueness in a peaceful setting. Situated on the shores of the St. Lawrence River, guests are treated to a beautiful view anytime of the year. Dewar's Inn offers a pleasant alternative to motel chains. Competitive rates and a complimentary continental breakfast in our sunny breakfast room over looking the grounds are just a couple of reasons you'll want to come back! The beautifully landscaped grounds feature a variety of fruit trees and feeding stations for the abundant bird and squirrel population. Strolling along the 300' boardwalk with the river on one side and extensive gardens on the other is a favourite past-time for guests. Many of the furnishings in the rooms and cottages are made on-site by the owner. Warm wood of pine, red oak, ash and maple create a comfortable and restful atmosphere. ... more   less
