Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence Seaway are each just a short trip from our hotel near Fort Drum. These majestic bodies of water are among the region's most popular natural attractions, boasting gorgeous scenery and numerous activities for adults and children alike. The Thousand Islands, a collection of 1,864 islands scattered along the head of the St. Lawrence River, are a must see. Among the major landmarks are Boldt Castle and Singer Castle, built in the style of European fortresses by wealthy families of past generations.
Sacketts Harbor, a charming vacation village on the shores of Lake Ontario, is another great place to find aquatic vistas and activities. Located close by our Watertown hotel, this lakeside community is popular among enthusiasts of fishing, sailing, white water rafting and swimming. You may also want to visit the Seaway Wine Trail or take a tour through the Car Freshener Corporations in this county seat town.
