I remembered that restaurant fondly from years ago but when I recently went back I discovered it closed and abandoned. When we dined nearby and I asked about it I was told it has been sold and will be moved to a location farther west.

This resort is right on the St Lawrence River in Alexandria Bay. Everything was right within walking distance of our room which was very convenient. The room was clean and there is a small porch outside to enjoy the view. The desk staff were courteous and helpful.

Wife took me on a romantic weekend getaway package to the Thousand Islands. Old hotel but clean and in a great location to Uncle Sam Boat Tours and Riley's on the river.
