Hotel Restaurant and Pub

The Wellesley Hotel Restaurant & Pub operated under the new management of Jamie Kalousdian beginning in 2019. Although Jamie has been coming to Wellesley Island for nearly 27 years, he grew up in Lake Tahoe where he worked in restaurant and hotel operations. After 25 years of a media career and 17 years at Cornell University, Jamie went back to school to follow his passion for getting a master's degree in Managerial Hospitality at Cornell.

The Wellesley Hotel Restaurant’s Backdoor Bakery will be open for the 2020 season offering beads, pastries and other goodies.  An award winning small batch coffee roaster Copper Horse Coffee from Ithaca, NY will be added to this year's lineup.  The Backdoor Bakery will open at 7:30am.  The Lighthouse Lounge will be serving to-go drinks and food until 9:00pm, featuring made-to-order pizza.  New this year: smoothies, grain bowls, paninis, wings and salads! 

If you have any questions specific to the Restaurant, please contact Jamie and his team at (315) 482-3698 or

Lodging At The Wellesley Hotel

Experience the beauty of the Thousand Islands and the St. Lawrence River in a historic Victorian setting. Built in 1903, The Wellesley Hotel boasts beautiful views of the St. Lawrence River, quaint Victorian decor and comfortable, vintage suites. Maintained as they were originally built, these suites have two elegant but refreshingly simple rooms connected by a full bathroom.

Our hotel is located in the center of Thousand Island Park and our suites offer views of either the open green spaces that lead to the River or our newly landscaped gardens. Each suite has a private bath and occupancy varies from 3 to 4 guests per suite.
