Beare and Susan are wonderful hosts of one of Kingston's truly unique B&B's. Only the 4th owners in over 150 years they have converted a very unique building incorporating all of the charm and history they can into this wonderful oasis in the city.
Kingston is a small city and most of it is within walking distance of downtown. The Frontenac Club Inn is only minutes from the centre of the city
We had a nice stay here. The room was very pretty (very modern) and spacious, with a lovely balcony overlooking the lake (unfortunately we were visiting in November-too cold!). The bathroom was shared, but there were no other guests at the time. Breakfast was very good, fancy, the hostess obviously enjoys cooking, which we very much appreciated, being food lovers ourselves. The only qualm I had was that it was very cold (perhaps b/c we were located in the loft?), but this wouldn't be an issue to most visitors in the touristy warmer months.
It has all the qualities you can expect from a Howard Johnson hotel + it's restaurant is particularly good. They offer a brunch in the morning for everyone, even people not staying at the hotel.
Also, the hotel offers a magnificient view of lake Ontario
I can't recommend one place, but instead I suggest you find a downtown B&B. We have some fantastic choices within walking distance of downtown. You could also go for a waterfront hotel and get a room with a view of the lake.
There are all kinds of accommodations available in this area. From campsites to romantic bed & breakfasts to luxurious hotels. Something for all price ranges. A nice thing to do is to rent a cottage and use it for a base as you tour the area.
These houses on the islands are not for you to stay unless your friends are one of the owners and invite you to stay with them.
You may stay at one of the hotels though. This one seems to be nice but we didn't plan to stay there so we didn't stop by.
This is where I stayed during my trip. It is called the LeRay House, located on post at Ft. Drum. Built in the ealry days of the American Revolution by a benefactor of the cause, LeRay ultimately found himself in financial trouble and sold the house to the United States Government, at George Washington's request. It is a wonderful two story house on secluded site. The days I stayed there, I was the only occupant, with the entire right front quadrant of the house as my bedroom. Some days, everything goes perfectly!!!
