Overview

About the property

On the St. Lawrence across from Boldt Castle

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, hammocks, and gazebos where you can relax and enjoy the river. They are great for ship watching or fishing. We have an in-ground 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 dock-age 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, 5 minute bike ride, or a 3 minute drive. With our 6 private acres it is a quiet and peaceful place. With our location you have the best of both worlds: convenience and privacy.

The Harbor House is a 3 bedroom/2 bath cottage directly on the river. It is actually a floating cottage! If you have your own boat or rent one you can tie it up right in front of your living room! There is a deck all the way around the cottage on the lower level. The master bedroom has a balcony with a view of Boldt Castle. It's a great place to fish or just relax and enjoy the river.

Upstairs: The master bedroom has a queen size bed. The balcony has a spectacular view of the Boldt Castle and Sunken Rock Lighthouse. The second bedroom has 2 double beds. The upstairs bathroom has a stand-up shower.

Downstairs: There is a large entryway. This leads to the downstairs bedroom, bathroom, and living room/kitchen. This bedroom has a double bed. The bathroom has a full tub and shower. The living area is combined with the kitchen. The kitchen features a full size stove/oven, full size refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee maker, and dishwasher. It has all new cooking utensils, pots, pans, glasses, and dishes. It is fully equipped. There is a dining table with seating for 6. The living room offers a beautiful view of the river. There are french doors that open up to the deck.

Shampoo, conditioner, and hand soap are provided. All of the beds are made with fresh linens. There are fresh towels and washcloths in both bathrooms.

We have other cottages available at The Ledges Resort & Marina. They can be found at vrbo or at ledgesresortandmarina com

With last minute reservations we often offer special rates and discounts. Please ask about any promotions we may have.

We hope you will come enjoy the river with us!

About Nick & Amy Schaefer

The Ledges property started with my grandparents Nicholas J Schaefer and his wife Amy. They purchased the property in 1961 and made it their home. In 1963 they built a motel called The Ledges. At one time they also had a German restaurant on the property named 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. The Ledges is again making changes, but staying in the family. It is now a marina and cottage rental resort. My wife Amy and I are now running the Ledges. I was named after my grandfather (Nicholas), and my wife's name happens to be Amy. So, once again Nick & Amy are your hosts at the Ledges!

Nick & Amy Schaefer purchased this cottage in 2014

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved the lighthouse on the water! It was perfect for our family of 6. Very nice nautical theme tastefully minimalistic. Has everything we needed! Fun family time by fire pits and solo time on hammocks. Dockage for our pontoon right in front of the house. Quiet and peaceful... We plan on returning to the St Lawrence river and this place is at the top of the list!

The Lighthouse at The Ledges

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a long weekend at The Lighthouse. The accommodations were great. The house was clean, the beds were comfortable and the amenities can't be beat. From the moment we pulled in, the staff (Ainsley) was there to help us move ourselves in. Several trips were made and that was appreciated. Check in and out was seamless. We rented a boat for a day and docked it in front, again very convenient...and cool! Nights in front of a well stock fire pit, were wonderful. The Ledges is also convenient by it's proximity to Alex Bay, a nice walk or a short drive away. We vacation together each year, visiting different places around the state. We all agreed The Lighthouse was by far the nicest place we have stayed in! Nick & Amy are great hosts! Highly recommended!

great spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved Harbor House. It is clean, comfortable, and -best of all- right on the water, with a beautiful view toward the river. Loved the slight rocking of the house when the big ships went by. It is amazing to be able to dock your boat right to your house!

Amazing Stay in the Bay!

  • 5 of 5

My entire immediate family (9 adults and 1 toddler) all stayed at The Ledges for a end-of-summer vacation over labor day weekend. It could not have been more wonderful! The amenities were impeccable, updated, and very clean. This is definitely saying something as many places are stuck in time in the Bay (that time usually being the 80s). Every single one of us could not get over how comfortable all of the beds were. The pool was very clean and we loved that it was not over chlorinated, making it the perfect place to go swimming when we didn't feel like taking the boat out. We especially loved that we didn't need to bring our own firewood as it was always provided and stacked by the pits ready to go. Also, the harbor houses are right on a floating dock! The houses do sway a little, but nothing too crazy. This location made for amazing views of the river was very convenient when we wanted to tour Boldt Castle as it was only a 5 minute boat ride. Amazing! As for our hosts, Nick and Amy were very accommodating and always easy to reach by phone. My family and I will definitely be back!
