We stayed one chilly night in October. We got shelter and a comfortable bed, within walking distance of the town center. There was not much happening in Clayton in the evening, and we were the only guests. The fire pit and garden area was not an option given the temperatures. There is a communal refrigerator that guests can use. At...

For our 60th wedding anniversary, we stayed at the Wooden Boat Inn and....their Admiralty Suite aboard their yacht, which is docked at the large marina. Our host, Bernie made sure we were tucked in and we stayed by ourselves for two nights in each setting. A special treat was a boat ride on the river where we were able to...

It was a treat to have "Ernie and Diane" as guests. A delightful couple. Diane played the bag pipes for us. She was magnificent.

Stayed here while attending a wedding at the Boat Museum. The Inn was within walking distance to the museum and town. Our room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. The owners were extremely accommodating and made sure all our needs were met. Great place!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Wooden Boat Inn. The rooms were very clean and the beds were SO comfy! It's centrally located within walking distance to Clayton and right down the street from Wood Boat Brewery (delicious wood fired pizza!) We sat around the fire the first evening with adult beverages. It was very nice! Highly recommended!

We booked some rooms with Bernie for our wedding. He was extremely friendly and easy to work with. He made sure all our guests were comfortable and had clean rooms to stay in. We got to book the house he has which was an added bonus! We would highly recommend his hotel!

Thank you for your thoughts. They are appreciated. Remember when communicating, and working with others it takes two to tango. The people in the wedding were wonderful fun, always upbeat.

Very nice inn - where the owners (particularly Berny) did a lot to make us a comfortable stay - and sharing with us a lot of informations about the area and where to go. Good rooms and common facilities. Clayton at Lake Ontario and Sct. Lawrence River is a lovely place - almost heaven.

we checked into the Inn this afternoon and it is a very special place. The rooms are adorable (I know I don't use that word often, but they are) and cozy.

A CLASSIC ALBIN TRAWLER.
