The Wooden Boat Inn is Clayton's very first, and only, unique boutique motel, located in the historic village of Clayton. Under locally born & raised new ownership, the Wooden Boat Inn has been restored with new rooms, but the campy, nautical, warm charm & spirit still remains. Just one block from the world famous Antique Boat Museum, there are many unique shops to visit & restaurants to choose from. Enjoy a scenic boat tour around the Thousand Islands St. Lawrence River & be sure to visit the impressive Boldt and Singer Castles. Fishing, scuba diving guides and boat rentals are just a short drive from the village. There's also a public boat launch and overnight dockage nearby. Whatever it is that brings you here we want you to feel at home with us at the Inn. Stay local. Live local.

Pia's inn is awesome! Our crew of 7 stayed in 4 of the 6 available rooms. Each room has it's own unique charm. Check in was effortless and the rooms were not only super comfy but very clean. The courtyard was a great place for all of us to convene before and after our many adventures in Clayton (and A-Bay). The location is perfect and walking distance to all Clayton has to offer. If you are thinking of staying here....DO IT...You will not be disappointed!

My family and I recently traveled to Clayton to visit extended family in the area. Unfortunately, because of some serious health issues, we were limited with our choices of entertainment and venues. We booked the house at the Wooden Boat Inn and it was the perfect place for us to spend time together. After learning about our situation, Kristy Hoover from Orion Art Studio and Gallery (located just down the road), was kind enough to give my family a private watercolor class. She brought all the materials to us and we set up right at the dining room table! We had an absolute blast. Kristy is an excellent teacher who made the time fun and entertaining. We learned new techniques, painted some awesome pictures, talked, laughed, and had a wonderful time. I am so fortunate that we had a perfect place to stay and an awesome watercolor class to make our weekend so memorable. Additionally, my daughter accidentally left her favorite stuffed animal at the Wooden Boat Inn, and Pia (the owner) called to let us know. Between her and Kristy they overnighted the doll in the mail and got it safely home to us! I can't thank them enough for all they did for us!! Such great people who took the time to make sure our stay was the absolute best it could be!

Love, love, LOVE this place. The Wood Boat Inn is a magical boutique style motel in the middle of Clayton. The charm that is evident in each room is a reflection of the new owner’s vision to update and renovate. Every time I turned around, I discovered something new and unique. The courtyard is small but adorable with seating and picnic table. The little screened porch was the perfect spot to have a drink and relax last night before bed. While this is our last night here, it will not be our last. We will come and stay again. It is local and within walking distance to everything in town but especially the Antique Boat museum. The Wood Boat Brewery is just down the street as well. And although this is close to everything, it is quiet and relaxing and a great place to escape to and unwind. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

We loved our time here! Already talking about coming back with friends. We stayed in the green room and just loved the style! Not only did I love the design, the room was also spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We love the town of Clayton but have never found a place to stay that checks every box for us. Not anymore! The location is fantastic. Within walking distance of all our favorite food and drink spots. So happy with our trip. Just book it now! You won't be disappointed.

We had to come into Clayton for a funeral and did not have a lot of lead time to make advance reservations at one of the “big” resorts. When this hotel popped up as an option we booked it, since we needed a place to stay. We were pleasantly surprised by the thoughtful and inspired decor. Wireless chargers by both beds, electronic doors( no keys needed), wifi, and the most amazing decor. We stayed in the Bee Hive room and everything in the room was on point for the bed theme. Even a small bottle of locally sourced honey. There is a nice gathering area outside for having a glass of wine and at night you can have a fire in the stone fire pit. There is also a nice screened in porch with games, coffee and snacks. This location is close to the Antique Boat Museum and other local restaurants. You can easily walk to the downtown area. The new owner should be proud that her hard work has paid off. This location is worth looking into if you are visiting the Thousand Islands. We would stay here again and try one of the other themed rooms!

From the moment we arrived, we were delighted with the room, amenities, proximity to "downtown" and the delightful community area on the side of the inn. We will definitely return!!!! Thank you, Pia, for making this a great experience, not just a trip!

Our family of 6 stayed in the house on the property. It worked perfectly for us. 2 king beds and 2 twins with AC units on both floors. The kitchen was well equipment for our needs. There was room to park our 2 cars in designated spots. We loved the outdoor sitting area in the back of the property and the cute hut with a Keurig machine and sitting area. Pia the manager was very welcoming and available. We were very grateful that she was able to accommodate an early check in and late check out. We would stay there again.

This boutique inn is newly renovated, oh so tastefully —retro style. It’s all about the details—right? Well, Pia, the proprietor, has given painstaking attention to detail to ensure that each room is comfortable and stylishly well equipped. Pia keeps the mood upbeat and positive to ensure that you have your best visit. I debated about staying at a nearby resort, but something in the web page, called me to try Pia’s place. It was the super attractive rooms. I’m so glad I chose the Wood Boat I. I thought it would be nice; I just didn’t know it would be this nice and so welcoming. Clayton is a walkable, charming town. The Wood Boat Inn is in walking distance to the the main attractions like the Wood Boat Museum and the Wood Boat Brewery. You’ll love the chic, easy, stress free vibe and you’ll be glad you chose the Wood Boat Inn.

I knew nothing of Wooden Boat Inn, other than I was playing a gig in Clayton and this was the place chosen for me to stay. Fingers were crossed but expectations/hopes were fairly low, centered strictly around cleanliness and sleeping in a bed that slightly surpassed prison-issued mattresses. Two days later, i can honestly say that WBI is one of the best, most beautiful, warm, friendly, charming, unique, artistic and spiritually perfect places I've ever had the pleasure of staying! The owner Pia is a one-person dynamo, doing anything and everything needed to infuse her property with everything it needs in order to invite you for a stay of peace and tranquility. She is friendly, engaging, attentive and wonderful. I promise you that this is not hyperbole and you will feel the same, if you treat yourself the way you should and stay at the Wooden Boat Inn during your next visit to amazing Clayton, NY!
