Angel Rock Cottages & Vacation Homes is a unique property with 32 unique upscale rentals accommodating from 1 to 14 guests located in Cape Vincent right on the St. Lawrence River. Because they are a lodging business, they were deemed essential and remained open throughout the pandemic.
At first things seemed fine, as there were some long term, off season guests who were working on the solar project in Clayton, however, that project shut down as did so many others, and Angel Rock's guests soon left the area. The NCA's Emergency Working Capital Loan program helped Angel Rock to continue to pay staff and meet ongoing expense while they had no other cash flow. "Also, the application process was simple and streamlined, which was exactly what was needed at the time," says Carol Thomas at Angel Rock Waterfront Cottages and Vacation Homes.
Ensuring that businesses that both celebrate and sustain the Thousand Islands and the whole North Country endure challenges is the mission of the North Country Alliance.
