The Captain Visger House offers a unique stay in a renovated Victorian home amongst the beautiful 1000 Islands. We’re located in the heart of colorful Alexandria Bay, New York, one of many communities along the glorious St. Lawrence. Come explore this hidden gem!
You are invited to step back in time to the 1000 Islands’ Guilded Age, recalling when Captain Elisha W. Visger, creator of the first island tours, lived here with his family. This fully restored, architecturally significant home combines gracious antiques with 21st century conveniences. Plush queen mattresses, luxurious cotton linens and optional specialties like chocolate, flowers and something bubbly are available to make your stay even more memorable.
Some of our rooms have glimpses of the water, and the entire house can feel the gentle rumble of ocean-worthy freighters passing by. It’s somewhere between soothing and thrilling and always, always, uniquely “the river.”
All guests of the Captain Visger House receive a delicious complimentary breakfast at our restaurant The Kitchen. Breakfast is my greatest joy in this endeavor and I am passionate about locally grown, sustainable organic ingredients in the food I prepare with love.
