Good stay.
We enjoyed our stay. Especially nice was the call to let us know our room was ready while we were still traveling there. Great location within short walking distance to everything. Would have liked a room away from the idling Uncle Sams boats with the noise, but we still enjoyed the veranda right off our room. Thank you!!

8/10 Very good

Great place in the heart of the 1000 Islands.
The place is at the end of town and is very quiet and that is good. It's older but has been updated and very room has a water view and balcony. Great location. Tons of bars and restaurants within 5 min walk.
