We just concluded a 5 night stay at Akins Acres. It was a wonderful experience. Jim and Marsha are very friendly. We were not familiar with the Canton area, but they know it very well, and helped serve as unofficial "travel guides." They suggested several places to visit and restaurants to try, all of which we enjoyed. However, the place that consistently had the best food was the Akin's breakfast table. Homemade bread for French toast with local maple syrup was a favorite, as were the homemade apple creeps. Each meal was accompanied by fresh fruit and coffee and juice. Incidentally, the first cup of coffee each day "magically" appeared on a table outside our room half an hour before our requested breakfast time. The room was both very clean and comfortable and, along with the fresh North Country air, provided us a good and restful nights sleep all 5 nights. We would definitely stay at Akin's Acres again, and recommend it highly to travelers to the area.

We have stayed at Akins Acres several times, and have always had a great experience. Jim and Marsha make you feel totally welcome. Although the rooms are not fancy, they have everything you need, including lots of little extras, and they are spotless! Breakfast is always delicious; everything home-made, and lots of locally-sourced foods. We recommend you stay here!!

We stayed one night at Akins Acres while in the area taking our daughter to SUNY Potsdam. The location is very convenient for Potsdam, Clarkson, St.Lawrence University and Canton. The room we stayed in was very nice and very clean. Jim and Marsha put out a beautiful breakfast and we enjoyed the company of another couple who brought their daughter to St. Lawrence University. It was a very enjoyable stay and we will be returning to the area for Family Weekend at Potsdam and staying at Akin Acres for two nights.

The Akins Acres Bed and Breakfast is a great place to stay. Jim and Marsha are two of the nicest people you will ever meet! They made us feel very welcome. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was fabulous. Also, everything is immaculate. When we arrived to our room there were homemade cookies, snacks and a mini fridge with drinks in it. Now isn't that nice! We highly recommend staying here if you are visiting the Canton, New York area.

Akins Acres is lovely and we cannot say enough about Jim and Marsha's hospitality. The hosts really make you feel special from the fresh baked cookies, snacks in the room and a fridge filled with drinks to the wonderful pecan and apple crepe' breakfast. We had heard that many B&B's leave you wanting but not Akin's Acres. We wish that we had known about them for previous visits to the Canton area.
