Warmer water, beautiful beach to walk and collect sea glass. Great place to dig for clams. The lighthouse is beautiful but you have to pay to go on the top of it. The stairs leading to it can scare children off. It was the most beautiful lighthouse I have seen in the maritimes, and it has an Inn there where... More

We have visited this back in 2008 and really enjoyed the museum and view from the top. As I recall it was not a taxing hike up to the top. It is still in decent shape, but we got there after it closed on our trip to the north cape. There is a very nice view from the top of... More

Great stop if you're doing all or part of the North Cape Coastal Drive. The red sand, water, and lighthouse views were beautiful. My husband and I traveled to this spot in the off-season, mid-October with our miniature dachshund. While exploring the coastline we only bumped into one other couple. It was a peaceful outing! It appeared that during the... More

For a family of four, we paid $10 for entry to see the lighthouse museum which permits you to climb the 72 steps to the top of the lighthouse. Definitely worth it for the beautiful views (but use common sense - dont go when it's cloudy/rainy). Note: we drove here planning to also stop at the restaurant but as the... More

The inn (hotel?) is very nice, newly renovated, the rooms are comfortable, a good size, and have private balconies with a great view of the sea. Great place for a walk on the beach, which goes on forever and starts a few steps from the inn door. Breakfast is so-so, few choices, toaster not working when we went (brand-new place,... More

We stayed for a night in the Tower room right in the lighthouse. Definitely a unique experience. The room was very well done and spotless, with a great ensuite with shower and standalone bath tub. Does take a while for the water to run hot, but then it probably wasn't in the original plumbing plans! (And it gets there eventually)... More

The rooms are very attractive, and well kept. The Staff are friendly and the museum is quite informative and certainly a sight to see at the very top, I give only 4 stars because 5 dollars per adult for the museum is a bit high. I can't comment on the food, but It is a good place to stay for... More

Can't say much due to visiting before the season, but well kept lighthouse and grounds. The lighthouse is actually open to walk around and up into the "light room" so you have a 360 of the area and coast. Friendly staff and a good selection in the cafe

We stayed here for one night during our recent trip around PEI and Nova Scotia and were so impressed with everything!!! The room was wonderful- great balcony, lovely furnishings and perfect location!! We ordered dinner from the restaurant up the road and they were so gracious to deliver it to our room so that we could enjoy the sunset from... More
