Beautiful New Loon Cottage on The River at The Ledges Resort and Marina

Bedrooms 1
Space 675 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

We have 7 cottages spread over 6 acres right on the St. Lawrence River

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 Loon Cottage is a beautiful loft style one bedroom cottage with a stone fireplace overlooking the river. It has a queen size bed upstairs. Downstairs there is a queen size pull out sofa with a memory foam mattress. It has a full kitchen with a refrigerator/freezer, farmhouse apron sink, range, dishwasher, coffee maker, tea kettle, and microwave. There is a 39" HDTV with Directv satellite television.

On the outdoor deck there is a grill and dining table with chairs to enjoy summer grilling. There is a firepit with Adirondack chairs for enjoying smores with the family.

The posted rates are for one unit with 2 people. There are additional fees for more than 2 persons in a single cottage. Please feel free to ask for a quote.

We also have other rentals on site. They can be found on VRBO with the following listing numbers






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 beautiful St. Lawrence 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

Perfect for a romantic getaway.

The house is super cozy and has everything you need. Was impressed with the interior design. Fell in love with the fireplace and the view from upstairs. Hosts are very friendly and helpful. Will definitely recommend this place.

Great Stay at the Ledges

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Ledges in Alexandria Bay. We stayed in the Heron cottage which had wood floors throughout, a full kitchen with top of the line modern appliances, dishware and utensils, living room with gas fireplace (house heat source) and a full bath with walk in shower on the first floor and a nice queen size bed in the loft on the second floor which overlooked the living room. The room also had its own outdoor deck with gas grill, patio furnature and a sweet fire pit to enjoy on cool nights. Everything was well appointed and the staff (Ainsley) was very friendly and responsive. The property allows pets (we have two small dogs that stayed with us) and it is always nice to stay with our girls in a beautiful place. The only improvements would be a closet or wardrobe to hang clothes (not usually a problem, but we were there for a wedding, so we hung my wife dress and my suit on one of the curtain rods) [note that there is storage via a dresser and some nightstands] and maybe a rug in the living room and near the bed in the bedroom, primarily so if you do have pets, you don't hear every step they take on the wood floors. The Ledges is really VERY nice and we strongly recommend anyone going to Alexandria Bay consider staying there!

Fun Couple's Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent the weekend in the beautiful Loon Cottage. The Cottage is brand new, and well stocked. We enjoyed the fire pit overlooking Boldt Castle! The property is within walking distance to town but was really private which we enjoyed. The owners have thought of everything and we even were treated to delicious homemade cinnamon rolls upon our arrival, which was a nice touch.

Awesome Spot

  • 5 of 5

Great property, extremely clean. Right next to the river and marina, it was great to watch the huge ships going by. The cottage is very well equipped with top of the line amenities. Short quiet walk into the main village of Alexandria Bay and a 5-10 min drive into Clayton. The owners are wonderful, we have never seen a young couple work so hard. Our 2 dogs were welcomed with open arms. One of the best spots we have found in our travels.

Beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here for our weekend getaway. The cabin was beautiful from views to the fixtures. Would definitely stay here again, it was so much more relaxing than staying at a hotel.
