Lovely stay

4.8 on September 18, 2014

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.

Raised and met our expectations! Great to be back.

Perfect B & B experience. Love our porch! Everyone is so great

First Time Staying at Bed & Breakfast

5 on August 24, 2014

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. :)

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.

Wonderful Place to Stay

Everything about the stay was perfect, the room, the food, the hosts, I'm not generally a bed and breakfast fan but my three friends talked me into it and I'm so glad they did. Did I mention the food? Incredible!!

Comfy Luxury

Beautifully and tastefully decorated, luxurious yet warm, with a choice of rooms. Nice amount of privacy and short walk to the main house for a wonderful breakfast. Loved it!

John and donna make you feel part of their family and are very hospitable. The rooms are beautifully appointed and spacious.

Fantastic Place to stay AND visit

5 on May 30, 2011

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!!!!
