Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. A short walk down to the St. Lawrence river with a dock for fishing. There is a pool and a gazebo for sitting and relaxing with your morning coffee. Great place to stay and would definitely stay there again when in area.

"They have cottages down closer to the water."
"All the cottages are at a nice angle so each one has a great view of the water, Cottages 1 and 2 are at the very end so best view."
"Some of the rooms are quite small. Room #7 is one of the larger rooms. Very nice."
"Honestly avoid the motel at all costs, stay in the sleeping cabin or a cottage if you stay there at all."
"The motel rooms are close to the swimming pool. The cottages are down a steep hill, by the river, but not convenient to the pool."
