My husband and I stayed here for two nights- we booked a two night package that comes with breakfast two mornings and one dinner. Dinner was great, at a tap and grill that's attached to the inn. It was three course with the inn package, soup/salad, an entree, and a dessert and a non-alcoholic beverage. French onion soup was delicious....

Spent a night here recently in dreary November - I was offered a reasonable deal when I called to inquire about rates, and booked a "river view" room in the small motel extension of the main inn. The rooms are old, but they have maintained them well, and it was beautifully quiet sleeping down by the water. As a coffee...

Thank you for your review. We are fortunate to have the Thousand Island Playhouse on the waterfront just footsteps from the inn! Although theatre season is currently over we look forward to the promising line up for next year. Until then we have some lovely winter packages with the same great rooms and service!

We stayed at this old inn/hotel travelling to Montreal. Too bad it was a rainy day, but the motellike accomodation in the garden was great. Spacious, good beds, comfy outside seats. The restaurant is good. A place with history all around.

Thank you for your very nice review! The waterfront rooms where you stayed are particularly popular in the summer when the gardens and docks can be enjoyed while watching the activity on the river. During the winter months our cozy fireplace rooms in the historic main building are especially appreciated by guests looking for a romantic getaway.

Beautiful Inn, with great views of waterfront. Ended up with rooms away from the main Inn. The rooms were decent size with access to the waterfront, however the bathrooms were dated and moldy. As well as the carpeting. Service in restaurant and spa was great as was the included daily breakfast. Walking distance to theatre and restaurants. Would not recommend...
