My wife and I have stayed in B&Bs throughout the U.S. and Europe. It is her absolute favorite thing to do. We drove over 8 hours from Michigan to Capt. Visger House based on one phone conversation with the owner (Sam). She told me she did not want to brag but she is a "pretty good cook". We were so blown away by her personable hospitality and unparalleled culinary skills that every meal was photo worthy and just as delicious as the next one. We were so impressed we even treated ourselves to a romantic dinner for two in her living room. What a smart thing to do. No where in Alexandria Bay or Clayton could we have received a better value, meal and service. She is just an absolute joy taking so much care to specifically tailor every meal to what you do or do not like. Cheers to you Sam.....you are the best ! Oh and by the way....the Harmonius Room was lovely as well.
Such a lovely Victorian-age Inn, completely modernized and beautifully decorated throughout. We especially enjoyed breakfasts on the enclosed porch overlooking a beautifully landscaped backyard, and afternoon cocktails on the backyard patio surrounded by colorful flowers. Nice large, tiled shower in our sizable bathroom too!
Great location and centralized to the city's interest areas. All within walking distance. The back porch overlooking the yard and landscaping are tranquil and demands a 2nd cup of coffee to enjoy the tranquility.
Old friends met for a few days of catching up. Public areas allowed us to spend lots of quiet time together. Owners and staff went far beyond expectations to make us feel welcome. They were very informative about the property and surrounding area.
This was our first stay at a INN rather then a Hotel/Motel. And we had a wonderful time , the place was so clean and wonderfully located. We hope to return and would recommend it to everyone!
My wife and I have been going to Victoria Rose Inn to celebrate our anniversary for many years. It's a beautiful period home, very clean with many amenities of comfort and welcome to it's visitors, and the staff are always very helpful and willing to look after your every request. I would highly recommend it to anyone for a one night stay or many nights. Gananoque has many good places to eat a lovely meal and the staff will recommend the place that's just right for you, even make the reservations for you to ensure you get the best seating arrangement.
Beautifil in inn with large appointed rooms. Stunning grounds with wonderful dining options across the road or down the street. Great hospitality. Our third stay there and every room is stunning. We love this place. Highly reccommended.
We've stayed at the Victoria Rose several times; it's our favourite place in the Kingston area. this year, they decided to skip the hot breakfast, and I really missed it. Great coffee and a plastic-wrapped biscotti are not a good substitute. Having said that, the staff are wonderful, the beds are comfortable, and everything is pristine. Definitely worth a visit. By the way, Athlone's, right across the street from Victoria Rose, does wonderful dinners.
I know I did not give the Victoria Rose 5 stars across the board, but believe me that I had a great time there and would recommend it to anyone. It exceeded my expectations in every way, especially in how friendly every single one of the staff were. It is a wonderful old house with a beautiful grounds and a large glassed/screened in porch where we hung out on a rainy afternoon. It's about a 5 minute walk to get downtown, and very easy to find. The one flaw in our stay was that the self serve milk for the tea had gone sour so my wife's tea was sullied, but it was fixed the next day.
We stayed at this B&B for 4 days and had a great time, Loved the house and the welcome we got from the owner, Sam. Very hospitable and the breakfasts were wonderful. Great location; close to everything. Definitely recommend this B&B to others and will definitely go back!
Our all too brief stay at the Captain Visger House B&B was a total delight - exactlyu what we were seeking. THe room was spotless with every amenity we needed. The breakfast was sumptuous. The location was perfect -- allowing us to walk to the boats for a cruise around the islands, to dinner, to galleries, and more. And most of all, the Innkeeper, Sam, was delightful to chat with, knowledgeable about the area, anticipated our needs, and did all of this while being unobtrusive. We would go back in a heart beat.
Our stay in August 2013 exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the sun room on the first floor. The room was beautifully decorated, luxurious and spotless. The room overlooks beautiful gardens and opens onto a lovely sun porch. The Inn does not offer breakfast but morning (and all day) coffee (choice of various varieties) was very good and met our expectations.
Nice peaceful place, a short walk to the waterfront. No dining available meant we made a picnic from the local grocery store and enjoyed the property. Wonderful warm staff, super clean and comfortable!
This is a fabulous inn, and can be recommended for its comfort and beauty. But now that breakfast is no longer included in the package (previously they served a great breakfast on a beautiful patio overlooking a garden) it is probably a bit more expensive than it should be.
This bed and breakfast is the best I have ever stayed in. The inn keeper was fabulous (Sam) as well as very informative about things to do ,the cultural surrounding the 1000 islands ,places to visit ,good dinning and historical history that she gave us made you feel right at home. This inn Keeper lives to serve people and loves what she does. The rooms are comfortable and her breakfast foods were done to perfection . Thank You. Sam. See you next year . Chris and friends
