An Invitation to Beaver Hall 

Beaver HallBeaver Hall is a fine example of early Canadian architecture and located¬†in the heart of the 1000 Islands. It is a unique landmark mansion. Constructed in 1826, the house was renovated and enlarged in the 1870’s to include an east wing, a third floor over the entire structure as well as a red Mansard style roof. Originally, the house was built for a local ships owner who sailed his steamships on the St. Lawrence. Prior to our ownership of Beaver Hall, the house was owned by John L. Russell, an historian with a deep love and appreciation of early Canadian history and her heritage. This stone home is essentially unspoiled and original. In the garden there is a collection of grain millstones used in the early 1800’s in the grain mills of Gananoque.


At Beaver Hall, history and hospitality join together for a memorable stay. Our Bed & Breakfast has six new beautifully decorated guest rooms, featuring period style furniture and new modern bathrooms with European style towel heaters. The house is decorated with beautiful period antiques which add charm and character. The ambience of the house will take you back to the old Victorian times, when hospitality was more gracious and accommodations were considered a home away from home rather than just a place to sleep.

We are located in the attractive historic part of Gananoque, only minutes walking distance to the waterfront, shopping area, restaurants, and other points of interest.

We would like to express our warmest welcome to you, our guest, to Beaver Hall Bed & Breakfast. We promise to make your visit a very special one!
