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.

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
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.
Beautiful place right on the water, perfect for our family gathering! Clean, beds Incredibly comfortable, hot shower, beautiful view ; close to town- 5 min drive. couldn't have been more perfect (except the rain :( We all loved being there. Highly recommend if you want a clean, cozy and comfortable place to stay!
Fantastic place. Right on the water and we tied our boat to the deck. Nick and Amy were there to do anything for you. I will be back!
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!
We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Harbor House! The house was beautiful and clean, and perfectly positioned on the water next to a marina. We loved sitting on the back deck watching the boats come in and out. There was plenty of greenspace surrounding the house to have a fire, play lawn games, run around or simply relax and enjoy the view. The pool was very well-kept and clean, and was very refreshing on such a hot weekend. Nick and Amy were excellent hosts - they were always available in an instant if we needed anything, but still gave us our privacy. They thought of everything for the house - pots, pans, utensils, toiletries, DELICIOUS coffee, and even gave us a bottle of wine for the bride-to-be. I would definitely recommend staying at any house at Ledges.
Six college girlfriends, over the age of sixty just had a fantastic few days in Harbor House! Basically a houseboat, yes it does rock very slightly sometimes, it is situated on a cove, with ducks, geese, herons, and beautiful boats. There are three bedrooms with very comfortable beds. The bedroom on the first floor relies on the living room wall air conditioner for coolness so a small fan for that room might help but should not be a deal breaker. The rest of the house was very cool. The house is very cozy but comfortable with tasteful furnishings and a very nice widescreen TV. But why watch television when you can sit on a wonderful deck and watch the activity on the river, including large cargo freighters. Gorgeous sunsets and glimpses of the castle. The grounds are open with fire pits and wood is provided and lovely flowers. Perfect areas for kids to play. Harbor House is not far from shops and restaurants. Nick and Amy could not be nicer or more helpful. They made this easy! We are already planning a return trip!
Our family rented the Harbor House and it was great. Walk right out on the deck and have your boat right there is just perfect. The property is beautiful and clean. Its close enough for a short walk or boat trip to Alex Bay for dinner or activities. My family had a great time. The owners are very responsive to making your stay top notch. We will return.
