Capt. Thomson's Resort


My husband and I stayed at Capt Thomson resort this past summer. It was our 40th anniversary and we returned to the area that we honeymooned in 40 years ago. I am an artist and painted this from your beautiful hotel. We loved our stay the rooms were beautifiul and the view was breath taking. Prints are available.

Each room has a mini fridge, coffee pot, coffee amenities, bathroom amenities, a table and chair, and the best feature a private balcony that over looks the St. Lawrence River. We have rooms that look directly at Boldt Castle and the shipping channel, sunset view that looks down river, upper harbor that looks upriver and at the castle and harbor view that looks at the boats coming and going during the day.
