#1 of 4 B&Bs / Inns in Prescott
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.

Great week away at Dewar's Inn. Adult only (kids over age of 12 allowed), no pets. Beautiful and relaxing getaway by the St. Lawrence River. The cottage was extremely clean. There are also rooms with ammenities they rent as well. No issues with social distancing with COVID. The boardwalk is a great place to walk along to see the boats on the water. There is even an area where you can get married there now. I highly recommend this place. The staff is very welcoming and social distancing was respected.

I stayed in a cabin, the cabin was well furnished and very enjoyable. The view right on the river was incredible. Waking up to the sound of Canadian Geese each morning was a treat. BBQ at each can. Would love to stay here in the summer! Breakfast available as well!

I have stayed in a lot of motels over my 15 year career and have learned the importance between a stay and an experience. Lodging at this inn is definitely an experience worth visiting. It has to be one of the, if not the nicest place I have ever stayed. And the price was very reasonable at $78 a night plus taxes. I stayed in October. Set rurally just on the outskirts of Prescott (literally 2 minutes) and on the river, it is very quiet and well maintained. The owners clearly take pride in their inn, as was evident by its maintenance, nice little touches such as mood night lighting, remote controlled fans and lights, comfortable furniture and bedding, mints and water they provide each night, a fireplace in the two different rooms I stayed, and wood trim and flooring. The rooms were beautiful. There was plenty of outside seating to enjoy the lakeview, and a very nice breakfast area. They also offer free wi-fi. Another nice touch was the binder with funny anecdotes, history of the town, and restaurant suggestions. I enjoyed reading it. Both the owners, and the staff lady tending the breakfast were very nice and accommodating. Among the best customer service I've ever received. What I especially liked was their stricktness concerning noise levels, ensuring a quiet and relaxing stay. Other guests were likewise very friendly and quiet. The continental breakfast was plentiful with delicious homemade muffins, waffles, bagles/toast, juice/coffee, fresh fruits, eggs, and sausages. The owners provided my breakfast the night before to take with me in the mornings, since I leave very early. I looked forward to going back each night and relaxing in the room, and look forward to returning again.

Home away from home atmosphere, this little lake front motel has an atmosphere that welcomes you from the moment you arrive. Rooms, which ever your choice, are homey and comfortable. The owners are on site, very friendly and welcoming, and the outside seating areas along the decks and waterfront provide a good atmosphere for socializing. Propane barbecues provided for your convenience as well. For this area, Dewar’s is at the top of my list of places to return to again.

We were on our way to Montreal for a wedding and decided to make stop in Prescott. We found Dewar's on the internet and called to reserve a room for one night. Lovely lady on the phone but easily confused. We wanted a queen room but were told that on the night we wanted, only doubles were available. Upon arrival the same lady was checking us in. We inquired about a queen room and she said yes there was a cancellation. So she had already put thru the double room on our credit card so had to cancel and recharge us for the queen . It was a difference of $9.00. Upon handing us the keys to the queen room she realized she had double booked the same room and we were back to the double! The whole process seemed to be overwhelming to her. Anyway, the room was great. The double beds are ok, too short for my 5'10" husband but adequate for one night. The area is beautifully landscaped and perfectly quiet. I would reccomend this spot to friends heading to that area. The room did come with breakfast that starts at 7:30am. Unfortunately, the same lady was in charge of breakfast and slept in that morning. We did get breakfast and it was fine. Overall a great find. I would try one of their cottages if we ever decide to stay in the area again.
