Lovely rustic house nestled on the St Lawrence River with cottage. Stunning views from private patio or river's edge. Breakfast great and served on dock. Very unique location being right off 401 highway and on the river. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

We visited the area just before Canada Day and we were delighted with the service and location. Dixie and John gave us great information about what to do and where to go in the Thousand Islands area. When we return this will be our first choice.

This place is so unique. We enjoyed our stay here during the long weekend. Breakfast is served at your preferred time (8 AM or 9 AM). Close to Downtown Brockville and Thousand Island cruises. The view from our room is really awesome. It's over looking St. Lawrence River. So relaxing when you sit by the dock in the morning or...

Dacie and John are very nice people to stay. You can ask everything you want and they arrange it. Booking in restaurants, extra heating. They take care for it. The view out of the room and of the deck is always interesting. Big ships are sailing in front of the B&B. In garden you'll see many different species of birds....

My husband and I booked this idyllic spot very last minute during a drive back to Toronto as the last night of our relaxing vacation. It was a lovely, quiet and peaceful spot to be before venturing back to post-vacation reality. Breakfast on the dock was a lovely way to start the day. John and Dixie were very hospitable and...
