The new (2014) owners of the Salmon River Lighthouse & Marina will begin their second season in the Spring of 2015. Please check back to the website early in the New Year to preview what is planned for a new and exciting 2015. We will be contacting all of our 2014 guests via email sometime in January when we announce our 2015 scheduled availability and rental rates.
Our sincere gratitude to all of our guests during 2014 and a heartfelt "welcome back" to all of those former guests who had the chance to see the "all new" Salmon River Lighthouse & Marina but were not able to visit with us during this past year. We look forward to seeing everyone again in 2015!!!
Best wishes for a Safe, Healthy and Joyful Holiday Season...from our families, to YOURS!!!
The Ellis and Barnell Families
The Salmon River Lighthouse & Marina is proud to announce its 2014 Season rental and fishing opportunities, and that it is under new ownership and management. Please review our rental options, choose your time to visit us, and unwind from your busy lifestyle. If you have been our guest in the past, you might not recognize us due to the numerous improvements and modifications. If this is your first visit, we promise you a comfortable, relaxing and carefree environment during your leisure time on the Salmon River and Lake Ontario. We welcome you as our guest and look forward to your stay with us.
Enjoy spending time (overnight!!) in our 3-bedroom Lighthouse or one of our three (3) rental cabins, all located right in the midst of one of New York State's premier fisheries. Located at the mouth of the Salmon River at Lake Ontario, our marina, lighthouse and cabins have something for everyone. Families, fishermen, lighthouse lovers and even ghost hunters from around the world, have spent time enjoying our beautiful surroundings, sunsets and beaches. Unlike a major portion of Lake Ontario with its rocky coastline, our little piece of paradise offers guests the unique enjoyment of a massive stretch of soft, sandy beach and a very gently sloping lake bottom, located directly across the river on New York State public access park land.
We are proud to have seven (7) of the area's finest Charter Boat Captains as active members of our "team" here at the Salmon River Lighthouse & Marina. This world-class fishery produces trophy salmon, brown trout, lake trout, steelhead, bass, as well as several other species of fish. The lake fishing season begins in April and culminates in the fall with the "ever-exciting" Salmon Run into and up the river. For the heartier, die hard fisherman, the late autumn and early winter months offer tremendous steelhead fishing.
For those with desires other than fresh water sport fishing, our 1838 fully-operational Selkirk Lighthouse offers comfortable and cozy overnight accommodations throughout the spring, summer and fall. Just minutes away are the Salmon River Falls, the Salmon River Fish Hatchery, a fine selection of golf courses, restaurants and a miniature golf course and go-cart track. We are also located close enough to the 1000 Islands, Canada, and the Adirondack Region of New York to make fun, family day trips an added option and bonus.
In addition to offering the 2-story Lighthouse Residence and Three (3) Cabins for rent, we also offer seasonal & transient boat slip rentals, seasonal & daily boat launches, seasonal & daily parking, small motorized boat & canoe rentals, an "all-new" retail store and gas and diesel fuel sales.
Thank you for considering the Salmon River Lighthouse & Marina in beautiful Port Ontario, NY as your fishing and vacation destination.
