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 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.
Just stayed in Boathouse 3 for a weekend getaway and everything was amazing! The staff is very accommodating and the facilities are beautiful. The boathouses are decked out in a nautical theme that fits perfectly. They're still making improvements and I'm excited to see what the place becomes! If you have the opportunity, this is the place to stay.
This is my first time using VRBO and staying at Ledges. I was not disappointed. Considering it was Pirates' Week in A Bay, the marina and our boat house was quiet and relaxing. Our boathouse was thoughtfully appointed and clean. The location itself was very convenient for sightseeing in the area. We pretty much kept to ourselves, but the owners were available and responsive to our needs without being intrusive. Our security deposit was returned in a very timely manner.
We had a very enjoyable and relaxing week. Views were beautiful and the attention to details in the cottage was great. Look forward to coming back and would recommend the ledges to family and friends.
Very nice comfortable cottage. Everything you need to spend a few days or longer! Nice view of Boldt Castle at night. Fun to watch the boats in and out of the marina. Would definitely recommend for couples or families. Very attentive owners who are there to address any concerns
We stayed for a long weekend, 3 nights at The Ledges in the Island Cottage. The location is ideal, directly across from Boldt Castle and an easy walk to downtown. We trailered our boat with us and the location couldn't have been better. Our boat was right outside our door, gas across the way and centrally located to go either north or south on the river and see the beautiful sights. Our cottage was very cute and clean with a good TV and good channels. Our dogs appreciated the A/C unit. The bed was very mushy, we actually thought it was a water bed it was so soft. This was a perfect unit to stay for a long weekend. Nick and Amy are a very nice, easy going couple who take pride in their property and it shows! Thanks, we will be back.
Nick and Amy made our family vacation very enjoyable. Our rooms in Boathouse 1-3 were clean and well stocked. The grounds are very well maintained. The pool was very clean. Every time my Granddaughter's wanted to go swimming, Nick was available to open the pool. They have numerous camp fire pits and picnic tables available for use. They supplied the fire wood for each fire pit.
The Ledges is within walking distance of downtown A-Bay. We also found it very easy to maneuver in and out of their docks.
Thank you Nick and Amy for all you do for your guests.
My husband, son, three dogs and I stayed in the Island Cottage. We had such a nice vacation. The grounds are beautiful and spacious. Located directly across from Boldt Castle. The castle was beautifully lit every night. The cottage is cozy, but there was plenty of room for all of us. Nick, the owner, was very accommodating to our every request. My son loved watching all the boats come in and out of the marina. He especially liked watching the huge cargo ships passing by.
