I chose to try Dewar's instead of the typical Holiday Inn. So happy with the decision. I had some intensive work training and returning back to my personal cottage became my personal retreat. I felt so relaxed and at home and will go home more rejuvenated than when I left, despite my tiring work commitments. My only regret was that... More

Pulled in late evening found parking lot to be NOT well lit . I was a little nervous but ever thing turned out well. The room was very nice, a little different but nice. The thing that made my wife a REALLY happy camper was how utterly clean the whole place was. The room has been recently expanded and is... More

Stayed here in October 2015 at one of the cottages. I love the fact that it is so clean, comfortable and spacious. You can look across the St. Lawrence and watch the ships go by. It's an adult only inn and no pets. This is a lovely place to get away to. Short drive to Prescott or Brockville. Continental breakfast... More

I always stayed in Gananoque whenever I visited the Thousand Islands area, but I couldn’t find the right accommodation for our group this time. So, this place showed up when I expanded my research. On their website, the place looked pretty dated and made me think of a retirement home. It turned out to be a very lovely place when... More

We booked one night here on our trip home from PEI and once there were sorry we couldn't have stayed a couple nights longer. Although we had a motel room it was fully equipped and even had a couple "surprise" extras. The rustic pine interior gave it a cabin feel. Very comfortable and it even had a fireplace in the...

We were travelling back from New Brunswick and booked the Nautical cottage. We were not disappointed. Very clean, great view, excellent hosts with breakfast included. We will definitely go back, maybe for a long weekend next time. Kitchen had full size appliances and the place felt very welcoming. Cheers!

A beautiful setting and garden but the convenience room was so narrow. Like being in a train car. Felt quite squished in there. Clean though and the bed was quite comfortable. Breakfast was not fancy but adequate. Next time I would pay the extra $20 and take a cottage.

We completely understand the anger and displeasure you and your husband experienced. From the start of this business 28 years ago until now, our inn has not only attracted guests through our scenic surroundings but our friendly, clean service and good value have received positive reviews from our guests. Even though we instituted a no pet policy, we have always... More

Excellent quiet location to stay if you are planning for a 1000 miles island tour from Brookville, Rockport, Gananoque or Kingston. The room is small. Kind of long but not wide. Good, friendly host. The USP of the place is riverbank.
