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 dockage available for $2 per foot/per night 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 Island Cottage is a one room cottage with a private deck. It has a king size bed. There is also a queen size pull out sofa with a memory foam mattress. It has a mid-size refrigerator/freezer, coffee maker, tea kettle, and microwave inside. There is a 42" HDTV with Directv satellite television.
On the covered deck there is an outdoor kitchen. It features a gas grill, sink refrigerator/freezer, and stainless kitchen sink.

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 getaway right on the river
Very comfortable and clean home right on the river in Alexandria bay.
Boathouse 3 has a beautiful view of Boldt Castle. Nice bedroom and nice size living room with small frig and microwave. Has a full size bathroom. Pet friendly. Needs a new bed and couch. Nick was great!! Recommend The Clipper restaurant for dinner. Food was great. O'Brien's has great food also.
Will be back again...Very relaxing....
Nick and Amy (owners) were VERY nice. We had Boathouses 2 & 3 (connected). They basically open a door between the 2 places. We decided to go with the water view (Boathouse 3) instead of the kitchen (Boathouse 1). Not having a kitchen was fine, there were microwaves and a fridge/freezer in both places. Boathouse 2 was basically 1 room, with 2 beds & a counter, so kinda small. Both places had a full bath. So for the 5 of us it was enough room. We would definitely do this again, hopefully the weather will be more cooperative next year!
Fall Get Away
Most important would I come again, Yes and would I recommend this place Yes!
Great spot loved, we were in boat house 3 right on the water with an amazing view of Boldt Castle
Mid October get away stay for 4 nights ~ very clean, plenty of space nice to have the kitchen area and table plus an area to sit outside. Nick and Amy the owners very friendly and helpful
They have a beautiful property lots of space to sit outside on the grounds and just walk around,
Alexandria Bay is a very pretty village to visit, first time here and thinking it would be very nice to visit in the summer.
The only down side was this was a girlfriends getaway (so needed two beds) the bedroom great size and the bed (queen) was very comfy but the pull out couch not so much. Pull out couch could either do with a new mattress or some sort of support for the mattress. Pull couches I know are not always the best option for more than one night stay. Would have to try a different room to have two beds next time I visit will definitely want to come to Alex Bay and the Ledges again!
Perfect stay on the water !
Cozy accommodations right on the water with views of Boldt Castle. Nautical decor and lots of amenities... very well done AND pet friendly....thank you Ledges for a great Fall getaway!!!
We stayed at the Island Cottage for two nights. The cottage was clean, tidy, and had everything we needed. Nick and Amy were wonderful hosts and made sure we were comfortable. In addition, they gave great recommendations for area restaurants and attractions.
