'Howe' does one begin to explain the beauty and tranquility of Howe Island? Wendy and David (Don't call him Dave) run an island oasis sans the waves. The property is beautiful overlooking the St. Lawrence breathtaking views, new memories you'll make but don't get confused that's no lake. Breakfasts were yummy and everything just right. If you have dietary restrictions,... More

The accommodation's are very clean and comfortable. There... More

We visited this beautiful place in Late July in our way from Montreal to Toronto. Good reviews brought us to the place. We arrived late night, but the friendly owner was happily awaiting for us. We were my wife and I and her cousin plus another friend not related to her. There was nothing to eat on the spot or... More

Thank you for your kind words though we regret your experience was not to your expectations. To be fare to readers of your review it should be said your last minute booking was confirmed and LAWTON LODGE-Riverview Room and Dan's Room were presented AS ADVERTISED...1xQueen & 1xDouble. Not until you arrived did you request 3 beds and we were happy... More

Absolutely beautiful property on a neat island along the St. Lawrence river. Hosts David and Wendy were great. Breakfasts were truly gourmet! A must do for anyone that wants to experience what life can be like in Thousand Island Ontario. 5 star all the way!

I booked here last minute as I wanted a base to go kayaking and fishing, and generally explore Gananoque and the surrounding area. We arrived slightly later than indicated to David, but we were met with a very warm welcome, including a glass of wine on the deck which gives breathtaking views of the St Lawrence River and across to...

Extraordinary, unique and beautiful come close to describing Howe Island B&B but still don't do it justice. From the warm welcome, friendly (and funny) chats, amazing and delicious homecooked breakfasts (the super muffins and best ever omelettes were particularly commended in our group!) to the breathtaking river views everything was simply perfect. The house and location are stunning, and the... More

To say that our stay at the Howe Island B and B was perfect is actually an understatement! Dave and Wendy are wonderful hosts that make you instantly welcome and treat you like family. The views of the St. Lawrence are breathtaking and the grounds and home are immaculately clean and groomed. This was not a typical B and B!... More

This was our first visit to Howe Island B & B and certainly not our last. Wendy and Dave are wonderful hosts. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The breakfasts were delicious. Beginning the day sitting out on the deck by the river with a cup of coffee... It doesn't get any better.

Lovely and accomodating hosts at a lovely riverside setting en route to Montreal. Beautiful views over the river and spotless rooms including all amenities that you would require. Home cooked breakfast was delicious. If you are after something different then staying on an island is the way to go. We took our own wine and cheese platter and sat in... More

Our 30th Anniversary get-away could not have been better. Our garden-view room was super comfortable, with peeks of the vineyard, the pond garden and flower beds from its windows. A quaint on-suite with beautiful up-graded shower was a plus. The breakfasts were scrumptious and Wendy always managed to have plenty if my man needed more than a 2 egg omelette.The... More
