McKinley House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 7 Clayton B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 August 2011

This recently re-opened B&B is a real gem. New owners Steven and Alyse Ritchie have restored a magnificent Victorian in the charming village of Clayton, NY into (in my opinion) the best place to stay in the Thousand Islands. The rooms are spacious, beautifully furnished and are very clean and comfortable. I stayed in July, so was especially grateful to have air conditioning for those few nights that things were a little warm. The B&B is on a quiet street, but very close to Clayton's shops and restaurants. I very much enjoyed my stay and look forward to returning! Note: Because McKinley House was just re-opened under new ownership after a lapse of a few years, contact info for the house you may find on the internet may be out of date. The current phone number is -------. Enjoy!

My husband and I stayed here for one night after a great day of boating with friends. We are typically not "B&B" people but our stay here was wonderful. The hosts/owners from New York City recently re-opened this B&B after beautifully restoring it. We had a private suite upstairs which consisted of a moderate sized bedroom with a separate, very roomy bathroom. There are no TV's in the rooms but there are several common rooms downstairs one which does have a TV. They serve a continental breakfast which is served in the downstairs dining room and is included in the room rate. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful in terms of recommending local activities and restaurant recommendations. The main street in Clayton where the majority of shops and restaurants are located is within easy walking distance. Off-street parking is available. I highly recommend this B&B for couples who are looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway.

We found the McKinley house by accident and we were very pleased. A wonderful host, lovely clean room and interesting town. It is recently opened and a great find.

I just returned from the Thousand Island, NY area. I stayed at the McKinley House Bed & Breakfast for one night. The owner was so accommodating; the B&B was immaculate; the price was very reasonable. This is a newly opened B&B. The Clayton Chamber of Commerce recommended this B&B and I am so glad they did. If you are in the Clayton, NY area, I highly recommend staying at this B&B. It is just one block from the center of town. Location could not be better. I had first looked at the Thousand Island Inn--disgusting! The Thousand Island area is so beautiful and worth a long weekend visit. While there, I took a boat tour of the St. Lawrence river. This was informative, relaxing and the way to see the islands.
