    We welcome you to the The Ledges Resort & Marina! We are located on the St. Lawrence river across from Boldt Castle . We have views of the castle, Sunken Rock Lighthouse, and the main shipping channel. We have decks, docks, hammocks, and gazebos. They are great for ship watching or fishing. We have newly renovated in-ground pool. There are outdoor fire-pits where you can warm up under the stars. We even provide the firewood! There are plenty of open lawn areas to play catch, lawn games, or just take a walk. The Ledges offers a peaceful getaway with 6 acres of landscaped grounds along the water. While the grounds provide privacy and lots of space, we are not in a remote location. It’s a quick and easy walk downtown. We are close to all of the attractions. At the Ledges you have the best of both worlds; relaxation and convenience! The Harbor House is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home. It is actually a floating cottage! If you have your own boat or rent one you can tie it up right in front of your living room! There is a deck all the way around the cottage on the lower level.

The balcony has a spectacular view of the Boldt Castle and Sunken Rock Lighthouse. The second bedroom upstairs has 2 queen beds. The upstairs bathroom has a stand-up shower. Downstairs: There is a large entryway. This leads to the downstairs bedroom, bathroom, and living room/kitchen. The downstairs bedroom has a double bed. The bathroom has a full tub and shower. The living area is combined with the kitchen. The kitchen features a full size stove/oven, full size refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee maker, and dishwasher. It has all new cooking utensils, pots, pans, glasses, and dishes. It is fully equipped. There is a dining table with seating for 6. The living room offers a beautiful view of the river. There are french doors that open up to the deck. The deck is equipped with a dinning table, chairs, and gas grill. Luxury shampoo, conditioner, and hand soap are provided by Beekman 1802.

      Very nice stay with lovely hosts. Pretty place. A real get away from everything feel.



        The cottage and grounds were not well maintained. Many windows in the cottage glass was cracked and taped. Refrigerator was very old and the bedrooms need new mattresses. Many spiders inside of the cottage. Toilet upstairs would not flush. For the amount of money you pay these items all should be addressed. An abandoned old Mercedes parked right next to the pool. Left actually a day early. If these items were fixed I would change to four stars.

        5/5 Excellent

          Nicely kept property with very attentive owners

          Great family vacation in super location with great views of the thousand island region. The property is very well kept, from a very clean house, to the large grounds that was great for walking the dog; nightly campfires; or heading into town (10 minute walk to Alex Bay). Our jet skis were just outside our front door, and our family really enjoyed the trip to one of the more beautiful areas of NYS. The owners were very attentive to answering questions and addressing any needs. It seemed as though someone from their staff was on the grounds available anytime. Already looking forward to returning!!! Thank you to the entire staff at The Ledges. The Smith’s

          4/5 Good

            great views of the waterway!

            We were there on one of the hottest weeks of the year: July 4th. The air in the living room just couldn't keep up. I loved being able to cook and hang with all of the kids and grand kids, jump in the boat and go to the different islands right from our own dock. The staff and owners are super nice, even helped us unload our truck into the cottage. We stay all over the country and have never had that kind of help. Amy is especially nice. One little issue was the sewer smell from the nearby marina but that was only the last night. Worth the stay!!!!

            5/5 Excellent

              Great stay on the water!

              We had a great stay in this cottage, on the water, overlooking the St Lawrence Seaway! Well appointed and great host who even carried our bags to the cottage. Fun, unique experience. That home actually floats on the water in at the mouth of a protected harbor. Enjoyed the very slight rocking motion. I highly recommend!
