My fiance and I recently stayed for 2 nights. The room was lovely- big, comfortable and inviting. The staff was welcoming. We opted to have breakfast each morning and the food was amazing! We would definitely stay there again and will absolutely recommend family/friends to stay there as well!

We stay at White Pillars quite often, as our daughter is a student at a local college. White Pillars is heads and tails above any hotel in the area. The buildings are in excellent condition, the rooms are always clean, the innkeepers, John and Donna, are wonderful people. And John cooks a gourmet breakfast that can't be beat. If you will be in the Canton area, you really should stay at White Pillars. It's an excellent value and a wonderful experience.

We have stayed twice at White Pillars and both stays were very enjoyable. Our room was clean and very comfortable and so were the common rooms. If we return to Canton, NY, this is where we will stay.

We truly enjoyed our stay at White Pillars Lodging. The beds were very comfortable. We appreciated the bottles of water in the room. The view out our window was lovely. And the breakfast at the homestead was wonderful! Eggs cooked to order, homemade bread, fruit and yogurt, homemade hot cereal with apples.

My daughter and I traveled to Canton to visit St. Lawrence. I originally was booked at the local hotel but came across this Bed and Breakfast and decided to give it a try. It was cheater and it included breakfast. This was our first time trying a Bed & Breakfast and had no idea what to expected - I thought it's only one night. Well they whole experience was wonderful - we didn't want to leave. From the warm friendly greeting at the door when we arrived, personalize directions to a near by hiking trail, the sunny garden room where we stayed, beautiful country setting, quiet and peaceful - great front porch. Breakfast was more than we ever expected - the friendly chef made a full spread (all homemade) for just me and my daughter and loved doing it. She told us all about the wonderful owners who she has worked for many years - how they love to open up their home others. I can't wait to go back just to meet them. This was a wonderful first for my daughter and me - I hope everyone that reads this review gives White Pillars Lodging a try - you will be pleasantly surprised. Thank you again for a wonderful stay. :)
Thank you for sharing your pleasant experience at White Pillars. It made me so happy that our greeter and our chef had gone beyond expectations in pleasing you that I bought them each an orchid plant. So your kind review blessed more people than you realized!

We enjoyed our stay very much. The place is very clean and welcoming. If you stay here make sure you sign up for the breakfast, it is delicious. The people that run the place are very friendly. The linens were very clean and the beds are very comfortable. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Visited during mid-may 2011 for 8 days. Stayed in the Homestead Adirondack suite. Would highly recommend for 2-4 people. Fantastic porch with bed for sleeping on the cool nights. Very clean, cozy room inside. Bed we sleep on firm but comfortable. Bathroom had nice shower, jacuzzi tub, and wall mount hair dryer. Everything was of great quality and the toiletries were made from natural ingredients. We also ate breakfast at the homestead every morning. DON'T MISS THIS!!! Donna, Mary, and John are great cooks. Varied the menu every morning. Nothing but the finest local, organic ingredients in all the food. And delicious!! Toured all the lake houses. If you have enough people, stay at one. If you like lakes, don't miss these places. All of the people from White Pillars made our vacation extra special. Thank you Donna Mary, and John. WE WILL RETURN AGAIN!!!!

We have come each fall for many years. Room and house are beautiful. Towels are thick. Hosts genial, knowledgeable about area and wonderful chefs. Willing to share recipes as well.

We just recently drove the 8.5 hours to Canton to take our youngest son to St. Lawrence University for the beginning of his freshmen year. Not having been in the area before we booked into the White Pillars on the recommendation of a friend. It felt like coming home --- the rural setting (replete with gardens) is intoxicating, the house is inviting, comfortable, the rooms well-appointed and John and Donna Clark couldn't be better innkeepers. Sadly for our son who was itching to move into his dorm and say goodbye to his parents, we are already trying to find excuses to return to the area just so we can stay a bit longer. We may just make the White Pillars our destination and not tell our son we’re in the area.
5 on July 30, 2010
We are at a loss for words to describe the absolutely wonderful experience we had at the White Pillars and with John and Donna. Everything was far beyond what we ever could have expected: the gorgeous homes and rooms, delicious food, beautiful grounds, and the wealth of knowledge and hospitality of John and Donna!! Our three teenage daughters also fell in love with everything and none of us can wait to go back!! We all feel truly blessed to have found this "treasure" and to have been able to meet such exceptional people as John and Donna. Chuck and Kathy Stephenson and family

We spent last weekend at THe White Pillars Lodge in one of the Adirondack rooms. It was great! We loved sitting on the porch and enjoying the great weather. The breakfast was wonderful - we only had time for breakfast on Saturday and boy were we sad we did not get to have it again on Sunday. Donna was a gracious hostess and we would certainly love to visit her again!
4.6 on May 05, 2010
Comfortable and warmly decorated with top quality linens. The views were spectacular and our hosts were thoughtful and welcoming, encouraging us to treat the inn as our home. This was a wonderful experience and we plan on returning!

My husband and I enjoyed every aspect of the Craftsman Suites at the White Pillars B&B: the serene setting, the beautiful accommodations, the gracious proprietors, and the organic gourmet breakfast were all delightful.

5 on January 25, 2010
This is a lovely inn run by lovely people. Over the past 4 years of my daughter's college career, we have stayed in both the Homestead and the Craftsman Suites. Both buildings underwent total renovations with attention to period detail. The tasteful decor and tranquil setting also contribute to an atmosphere of relaxation and understated luxury. John and Donna Clark are warm and considerate hosts who produce an exceptional breakfast. They were meant to run a B&B!
5 on January 20, 2010
A lovely house, a charming room and warm, friendly hosts. My best B&B experience ever.

Exceptional B&B with plenty of space for guests to relax outside their room. The Homestead had huge windows to watch birds, sunrises, and sunsets, and delicious breakfasts. My husband and I plan to return the next time we visit our son at St. Lawrence.
5 on October 29, 2009
We love staying at White Pillars Craftsmen House. This past weekend was our third trip to the Inn and as always it was consistently perfect! The setting is so peaceful and relaxing, a true get-away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We highly recommend a stay at one of the White Pillars homes and make sure you have a breakfast with Donna and John, it's a treat. Tina and Michael Moran

5 on September 23, 2009
We stayed at 3 separate bed and breakfasts that weekend. We couldn't even compare the other 2 B&Bs to the comfort and relaxation of the stay at White Pillars. I honestly felt like royalty. We can't wait for our next vacation so we can revisit White Pillars
5 on September 22, 2009
Stayed at White Pillars while visiting daughter at St. lawrence U. Beautiful & relaxing. Couple miles out of town, unbelieveable value compared to hotels in town. Stayed in Craftsman house.

This charming old home in Canton, NY has been lovingly cared for by John and Donna Clark through the years as they raised their 7 children here. Now that all the children are grown, the Clark homestead has emerged as a wonderful B&B. It is impeccably maintained and full breakfasts are served with enjoyable comversations around the table. The Clark family roots run deep in this charming college town and John & Donna are a wealth of local information for all who are fortunate enough to stay here.

5 on July 10, 2009
We stayed here twice and the accommodations and service are wonderful. The innkeepers spent time talking to us as they fed us their delicious home-cooked breakfast which is anticipated each year!

5 on June 03, 2009
My second visit to White Pillars reconfirmed my first impressions -- this is a top quality establishment. The breakfast was superb. The deep, whirlpool tubs in the bathroom made for a relaxing end of day soak. Anyone wishing to explore the North Country should consider making White Pillars their base of operations.
4.8 on June 01, 2009
This was my 2nd stay at White Pillars, and we loved it. The 1st was last year when my son and I stayed to visit the campus. This year was to return with my husband and see pick up our son at the end of the year. John and Donna are wonderful hosts. Michael loved theTrout Lake visit last year.
4.4 on May 25, 2009
Fabulous accommodations paired with a delicious breakfast and pleasant, interesting conversations with the hosts. The Adirondack Suite was especially comfortable and large enough to accomodate the whole family. We all agree the beds are the best!!

Canton’s Best Kept Secret My one week stay at White Pillars was a delightful experience. This charming B&B strikes the perfect balance between tasteful accommodations and down-home hospitality, all surrounded by the peaceful splendor of rural St. Lawrence County. John and Donna Clark are warm, friendly and welcoming hosts who make you feel like family. If you are considering a stay in the Canton area, White Pillars is definitely the place!

John and Donna Clark provided my husband and I, and our future student of St. Lawrence University, with a warm and welcoming Bed and Breakfast. We stayed in the Oak Room where we had a full kitchen and separate bedroom. There was plenty of room to relax and unwind. The sunset was awe inspiring and the quiet without being stuffy was perfect for families. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The Clarks are not only highly competent but also compassionate and fun too, while providing the exact amount of privacy that individual guests wish. This is an unusual combination of qualities to find in a Bed and Breakfast. I would suggest this family B and B across the board. This is a spot for newlyweds, romantics at heart, families, seniors, and all those who just desire an escape to both beauty and comfort .
5 on April 15, 2009
A Beautiful homes to stay in, quiet, clean, and full of history. Food was delicious and healthy!! Best of all was the hospitality and warmth felt from the owners and their family!

I highly recommend this B&B. The breakfast was wonderful, using all local organic ingredients and homemade breads & jam. The room was charming with a gas fireplace, spotless and had everything you would need. The hosts, Donna & John, were welcoming, made us feel like long lost family. They were full of information about St. Lawrence University and helped us make our decision to apply. We hope to be back. It would be the only place to stay!

In White Pillar's "Adirondack Room" we enjoyed the stone hearth with a gas fireplace along with the room's rustic woodland decor. Breakfast was top notch with fresh fruits, homemade bread, omelets made to order, juices and coffee. Very gracious hosts, Donna and John give special attention to details like candle light, music and friendly atmosphere. Very relaxing. Highly recommended.

great place, great hosts
4.6 on January 18, 2009
Absolutely wonderful place to stay. I grew up in the area and due to my girlfriends cat allergy we can't stay with my parents when we visit. Rates are better than the local major chain hotels and the experience is more home-like. This is the first place I look for lodging when I visit. This year we invited the family back to the Craftsman Suites and we made popcorn, played board games, and entertained as if it were our own home. We haven't taken advantage of the included meals as we tend to have our meals with my parents. We did use the Craftsman Suite cookware, appliances, dishes, and dining table to entertain though. I absolutely recommend White Pillars. With its setting on a quiet country road away from heavy traffic. It's the only way to enjoy the beauty of upstate New York.
5 on January 14, 2009
outstanding in ever aspect!
4.6 on January 07, 2009
White Pillars has become our home away from home on our visits to the Canton area where our daughter attends college. We have stayed in the main inn several times where owners Donna and John live. It is beautifully furnished, warm and inviting with a wonderful breakfast available. We have also stayed at the Craftsman Suites, one of their other buildings, which is a wonderful refuge where you have full access to a glorious house, use of a state of the art kitchen, living room w/fireplace and wraparound porch complete with wicker furniture and gas grill. I absolutely adore this place and the owners, who are just all around wonderful people whom I have greatly enjoyed getting to know.
Thank you so much for your kind words. In appreciation for taking the time to write the review, we would like to offer you a 10% discount on your next visit. Please mention this offer when you make your reservation. Donna
