We stopped here for one night en route to Montreal. This motel is located right on St.Lawrence river. They had a nice garden with a beautiful boardwalk along the river. We had an efficiency unit with a small well stocked kitchenette ,one double and one single bed. Everything was very clean and spotless. Coffee,tea,two granola bars,microwavable popcorn were provided in the room.In the morning there was a modest breakfast ( coffee,tea,muffins,bread,cereal ) in the breakfast room behind the office. All this for a very reasonable price.
One thing to note--they have zero noise tolerance and do not allow pets or children.
The downtown and Fort Wellington were a five minute drive away from the motel.

Stayed: September 2012, traveled as a couple

Simple rustic charm. Immaculate. Gorgeous views. God's country. Watch the ships navigate the river. This was not a lavish room...it was simple but clean, unsophisticated, but pleasant. Our room included microwave, fridge, dishes, silverware. One suggestion: bring your own hair dryer.

Room Tip: specify 2 beds or room with fireplace

The only negative is the room was small, but just outside the door is a big deck and big view. The staff is great, breakfest good, and the ambiance from the wood floors and decoarations were welcome. Definitely a hidden gem

This Inn/motel presents an unassuming prospect as one speeds along old highway 2 just west of Prescott Ontario. We were tired of driving and it was the start of a long weekend so traffic was going to be insane as we motored toward Toronto. We decided to check Dewar's out. What a find! On the other side of the modest highway facade was a marvelous mixture of cottages, housekeeping rooms and regular motel rooms, all overlooking a panoramic view of the mighty St Lawrence, an awesome arrangement of wooden decks and gardens and the distant USA shore. Our housekeeping room was immaculate and inviting. Morning coffee on the deck was marvelous with quiet conversations with other guests as we watched huge boats slowly moving by and flocks of birds skimming the water and even a huge fish (sturgeon?) breaching offshore. At night one can barbecue on the deck or just watch the sun set over the biggest waterway in Canada. And the greatest blessing of all,...it is quiet, thanks to enlightened policies, such as no dogs or children under 12 and zero noise tolerance. A truly heavenly experience and at definitely modest prices. Incidentally, the access to the Internet was the simplest and most efficient we have encountered at any venue ever. I notice too that other recent reviews echo all our impressions of this jewel of an inn.

Room Tip: The cottages are gorgeous, private deck/barbecue and with fireplace.

We spent 5 days here with family in 3 rooms. This is An outstanding location. The staff was great, the managers Marg and Carolyn were responsive and very friendly. We sat by the river every morning with our coffee and closed the day sitting on the deck outside our rooms with a nightcap. The breakfasts were great, too.
If we go back to the area, we will definitely stay here again!

We spent last Friday night at this beautiful Inn on the St. Lawrence River....definitely a hidden gem.....cosy, friendly, perfect place for a night passing thru or a longer, relaxing stay....we had a housekeeping cottage and it was perfect.....

Room Tip: Look beyond the entrance off the highway....what you see from the road is not what you really get...

We don't usually stay in Prescott on our many travels through this area but our most recent trip worked out so that we'd need one night over somewhere in the Cornwall to Brockville area. We decided to get off the 401, try the scenic route and ended up at Dewar's Inn on the River -- what a great decision it was.

Lovely cabins overlooking the St. Lawrence River with patios or waterside decks to sit and relax outdoors. Cabins are absolutely immaculate and although not fancy, they have everything you'd want for a cottage type stay, and even air conditioning which is most welcome this very hot summer. There appears to be no swimming or boat access at the inn, but there is in town, just a short drive away. We didn't have time for that so it wasn't a letdown. Staff are wonderfully friendly; continental breakfast was adequate to start our journey, We are headed back through this area in September and I have just finished planning our trip based on staying over again in Prescott at Dewar's!!!

Room Tip: I'd pick a chalet/cottage over the motel room anyday although it meant a double bed not a queen...
