It has been 22 years since we have been married and Harv and Sherry were nice enough to have us for our honeymoon in 1993. Over the years, we have stayed at West Winds in our favorite room 8 in the motel. Impeccably clean and comfortable accommodations is an understatement. The Hurley's have done an outstanding job maintaining their property,... More

This was our second year staying at Westwinds. We have already booked next year and are hoping to rent a cottage then . Staff and owners are very nice and rates are good. Docks are great for the boat . We stayed in the hotel in 2 rooms and beds were comfortable. Can't wait until next year !

Bed was very comfortable. Free HBO and WIFI. Room only had a shower which was fine with us and has plenty of... More

We have stayed at West Winds at least once a year since 2008 and have never been disappointed. This year's visit lived up to our expectations. The grounds and buildings are well-maintained and very clean. Every member of the staff is not only attentive and responsive but also just plain friendly. It's almost like a home away from home -...

Recently rented a cottage at West Winds for a fishing vacation. Cottage was very clean, good mattress comfort, adequate kitchenware. 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

Westwinds was suggested by a fellow entrepreneur who has stayed there for the weekend of the Clayton Wine & Food Festival numerous times. 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

Clean, comfortable and friendly. Owners are there and ready to assist with any needs. River access is great and beautiful...fire pit for all to share and gather around, pool is clean and well kept. Staff is friendly and helpful also which reflects highly on the owners. WE will be going back for many years....

This is our 2nd year staying there and will be going back next year. The owners take great pride in their property, we stay in the motel which is extremely clean and very well kept. One of our couples did stay in a cottage this year and also loved that. Having the picnic tables and gas grills is one of... 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...
