Property description

For more details and a complete calendar you can visit our website - www.ledgesresortandmarina.com

The Ledges Resort & Marina is right on the St. Lawrence river. We have views of Boldt Castle, Sunken Rock Lighthouse, and the main shipping channel. We offer 6 acres of landscaped grounds to enjoy. There are decks, docks, and gazebos where you can relax and enjoy the river. They are great for ship watching or fishing. We have an inground pool where you can cool off from the summer heat. There are outdoor fire-pits where you can warm up under the stars. There are also plenty of open lawn areas to play catch, lawn games, or just take a walk. We have dockage available if you rent or bring a boat. There are grills and picnic areas.

The Ledges is located in the village of Alexandria Bay so we are close to all of the attractions. We are less than a mile from the center of downtown. That makes it a 10 to 15 minute walk or a 2 minute drive. But because there are 6 acres it is a quiet and peaceful place. With our location you have the best of both worlds, convenience and privacy.

The Ledges Marina has both seasonal and transient dockage. We have 30 amp shore power, water, and Directv service available to our boaters. We have on site boater restrooms and showers. We also offer boat storage, detailing, and other marine services.

Starting this year we will be hosting outdoor events. We will be offering our grounds for weddings, reunions, graduation parties, and other events.

We are currently re-modeling the entire property. The inside renovations were just finished. Now we are excited to start on the outside. The grounds are being improved with new landscaping, lighting, and gardens. We are adding more fire-pits, grills, and hammocks. We have lots of improvements planned for The Ledges! The pictures will be updated as the improvements continue. You can follow our progress here and on our Facebook page

We look forward to hosting you!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: The Ledges property started with my grandparents Nicholas J Schaefer and his wife Amy. They purchased the property in 1961. They made it their home. In 1963 they built a motel called The Ledges. At one time they also had a german restaurant called The Old World Inn. They closed the restaurant 1982, but continued with the motel. The motel was later run by my parents Jerome and Deborah Schaefer. They expanded into the marina and cottage rental business. In 2013 after 50 years in business we made a decision as a family to take the original motel down. Now the Ledges is again making changes, but staying in the family. It is now a marina and cottage rental resort. It has been taken over by myself and my fiance. I was named after my grandfather, and my fiances name happens to be Amy. So, once again Nick & Amy are your hosts at the Ledges!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Ledges Resort & Marina is less than one mile from the center of downtown. This gives great access to all of the local restaurants, shops, and activities. We also have 6 acres of private grounds. This allows us to uniquely offer both access to everything along with privacy.
