About Nick & Amy Schaefer
The property know as The Ledges Resort & Marina began 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 and named it The Ledges. They had a German restaurant on the property named The Old World Inn. They closed the restaurant 1982, but continued with the motel. In later years the motel was managed 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. I was named after my grandfather, Nicholas, and it just so happens that my wife’s name is Amy. So, once again Nick & Amy are your hosts at the Ledges!
Nick & Amy Schaefer purchased this Cottage in 2014

A great getaway
We stayed at The Shipwatch for the weekend. Nick and Amy have lovingly created a charming, cozy place by the water in Alexandria Bay. The cottage is so sweet, with all the necessities. The two rooms are sufficient, comfortable queen size bed in each room. The living room and kitchen are not large, but if the weather has been nicer, we would have been outside roaming the beautiful outdoor space with Adirondack chairs, fire pits, and gazebo. Nice touches, such as rain shower, good coffee, cute dishes, nice linens, etc. A lovely stay.
Great place on the water.
Ledges was convenient with a boat dock in front of the house. Very clean and the property well kept.
Great place to stay!
Beautiful cottage. Great design and comfortable for the whole family. Kids loved the pool!
Relaxing getaway for a special milestone birthday .
I booked the Shipwatch cabin and was not disappointed . The cabin was decorated beautifully with all the amenities and was very comfortable .I especially loved the rain head shower arm in the bathroom which was a very nice touch and gave me the most relaxing shower. I now have to buy one for my bath... Loved the Adirondack chairs surrounding the Fire Pit ,and thought it was great that fresh wood was provided to make a very nice fire as well.. Also, loved the outdoor pool , and the gazebos on the premises .My guests and I enjoyed the property very much and would love to go back . We couldn't ask for a better weekend. A big thank you to Ainsley for helping me with the TV, and the owners for doing a great job maintaining the property . Cindy T.
Chillin by the river
Perfect blend of close to town while still a million miles away! Nicely maintained property with lots of room to roam, firewood delivered nightly to use in your own personal fire pit. The young couple who owned and maintain the grounds make themselves very available for any problems or questions. Our cabin was very cutely decorated and kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked
Relaxing stay-helpful staff!!!
It’s the perfect relaxing stay! The pool was so enjoyable! The fire pit was always fully stocked by the staff, which was a pleasant surprise! Anytime we needed anything, help came within 5 minutes! Clean, beautiful house and location! Thank you so much for a fabulous experience! We cannot wait to come again!
