Cable TV, Internet, gas fireplace, AC, fans, outside grill, picnic table provided for our use. Right from our living room window was a fantastic view of the St Lawrence. We also sipped wine, met other guests while watching sunsets from... More

My husband and I own a small hot sauce & salsa company, Chef William Creations, and had a booth at the festival for the first time. So, we took the suggestion and were able to book the... More

Great experience staying at West Winds. The owners are lovely and do a wonderful job maintaining the property which slopes down to the big beautiful river. There is a nightly "campfire" at the fire pit which makes for relaxing socializing. The motel rooms are clean and the bed was comfortable. My only complaints would be the thin towels and the...

We have stayed here a couple of times over the last five years. The rooms and cabins are clean and comfortable. The river view is great and the nightly fires in the fire pit are wonderful. We have always enjoyed our stay.

The facility is elderly but has been very nicely updated. The rooms were very clean and comfortable although not large. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. I especially loved that they...

Although it was basic, the place was nice and clean and the owners were really friendly and helpful. I would go back there again but instead of a motel room, I would rent a cabin. . . . . . . . . . . .
