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

Best cottage Ever
Everything was perfect
Met Nick, the owner, he was very nice and all the staff was awesome. Very clean and new cottages.
Wonderful place for a relaxing vacation!
Nick and Amy were friendly and helpful, and clearly care about the experience of the people who rent from them. Everything you could need was provided, including firewood! Chris and other employees were equally as nice and hospitable. Will definitely be coming back, hopefully ASAP!
Exceptionally friendly and clean. Just one suggestion - Maybe a cabinet in the bathroom so I could have unpacked my toiletries. Loved the shower. I would stay there again and have already recommended it to family and friends. They certainly went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, from shampoo to fire wood in the fire pit. A home away from home!!
We loved our stay!
The Ledges Resort & Marina is such an amazing property and the location couldn’t be any better. The Heron Cottage is just adorable—plenty of space for me, hubby and 3 dogs. It has modern amenities but with such charm inside and outside. That picture window, c’mon – how fantastic! We appreciated all that was provided such as linens, cooking supplies, comfortable bedding and coffee. The simplest little things really make a trip special. Nick and Amy were so kind and very responsive to our questions as we planned for our time there. What more could we ask for? It felt like a little home away from home. Lovely!!
Beautiful little cottage! Amenities and view could not have been better! Fall colors were out in force. Highly recommend.
Beautiful cottage and a great location
What a beautiful new and well appointed cottage. You can tell they built this to last and it has all of the creature comforts you could ask for. Highly recommend.
