The food here is among the best the island has to offer, and the inn features large, unique, and comfortable rooms in a beautiful location between the St. Lawrence River and the island's lush, verdant fields. As the name—the Crested Duck—suggests, its contemporary menu usually includes at least one dish with duck, perhaps with sautéed mushrooms and foie gras. Owner/chef Philip Rae uses locally raised meat, fish, and fowl. Upstairs, each of the inn's rooms has unusual
antiques and original paintings.
