The Ledges Resort & Marina

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
Why Nick & Amy Schaefer chose Alexandria Bay
Located in the Heart of the 1000 Islands!
What makes this Cottage unique
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.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Accommodations are comfortable...nice sheets...GREAT towels and coffee! Best thing about The Ledges are the owners (Amy and Nic) and the staff (Chris in particular)...and the location....lovely!
The property was amazing
We enjoyed the cottage. They had everything we needed plus more for cooking with and eating with. It is a great place to go on vacation.
Cute little cottage. Very clean and well equipped
Really enjoyed our stay
Relaxing and enjoyable
We enjoyed our stay. Cute and clean with attention to details by owners. Very responsive with service or request. Hope to be back again.
Perfect getaway right on the river
Very comfortable and clean home right on the river in Alexandria bay.
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!
