The Tree Top room was a perfect place to spend a week in the North Country. While I had time to visit with my daughter, sightsee and relax I also had to put in a few hours of work. The morning breakfast was delicious and started the day off right. I was close to the St. Lawrence campus for my... More

A return to the North Country was made that much more special with the warm hospitality and wonderful welcome by John and Donna. The Adirondack Suite was simply, perfect... everything in the room (and the overall main home) made you feel as if you might have been there before, in a dream of the perfect B&B, with beautiful surroundings and...

From the soft and soothing Egyptian cotton linen to the multiple shower jets to the fabulous bedding, you won't find a more comfortable bed and breakfast to recharge and enjoy. The breakfast was so good my mouth is watering (for real) as I remember the custom omelette and thick, meaty bacon, expertly cooked to perfection in under a minute by... More

We stayed overnight at White Pillars and enjoyed an outstanding Mother's Day breakfast with Donna and John and other guests. Fresh squeezed OJ, custom made omelets, homemade granola, whole grain bread, cinnamon rolls and yogurt parfaits were all made in house by the owners. The breakfast conversations were stimulating and thoughtful. We had the most amazing room in the Craftsman... More

Coach John and Donna Clark are great innkeepers. Their lodgings are comfortable, stylish, and well appointed. It is not unusual for folks to sit in the study by the fire in their pajamas for coffee and conversation early in the morning. The staff keeps everything fresh and clean, and are great to speak with on a number of topics. My... More

My parents always stayed here while visiting me when I was attending St. Lawrence university. The place is truly amazing and the rooms are beautiful. And the breakfast is awesome to boot. I recommend it to everyone I know! Their website is also amazing, we've stayed at their camps on trout lake during the summer. Just a really wonderful family.

A St. Lawrence University alumna, my husband and I brought our daughter to Canton to tour the campus. Three of us shared a room in the lovely Craftsman house. Home away from home --but cleaner! Amazing breakfast. I look forward to returning and will spread the word to fellow alumni. Thank you!

My husband and I were able to get a room at the White Pillars for the Clarkson University Parents weekend. It was a wonderful experience. It was convenient and only about 20 minutes away from campus.
