We were looking for a place to stay in the Lockewood area, and many places were unavailable so we expanded our searching area...and found this! Got a great price, and upon arrival found we were upgraded from a queen room to a queen cottage! So cozy and sweet, quiet considering it's convenient location, and breakfast included.

Stayed here for one night on a driving circuit of Nova Scotia. It was easy to find and conveniently located for our purposes. Our room was in the main building. It opened out onto the swimming pool enclosure, so we had the pool to ourselves late in the evening and first thing in the morning. The room was not overly... More

I'm writing on behalf of guests who visited us and stayed several nights at the Acker, one of several cottages at MacKenzie's. I heard rave reviews about the comfortable bed, which provided a good night's sleep, and also the excellent complimentary continental breakfast. The cottage is larger than the standard motel rooms and makes good use of space, complete with... More

We stayed here a night, in one of the regular rooms. Check-in was efficient, the room was clean and breakfast was better than expected. The bathroom is very small, but good. The fridge was a pleasant surprise and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was included and had cereals, oatmeal, coffee, tea, juices, yogurt, biscuits, boiled eggs, muffins and toast... More

Our cottage was cozy, well appointed and equipped with all that was needed including air conditioning. The pool and surrounding deck was clean and inviting with lovely potted, flowering plants aplenty. Mackenzie's is perfectly situated for a run to the town's heritage waterfront, restaurants or the beach. Sandra's homemade cheese biscuits every morning were a relished treat too! Thanks folks,...

Four of us shared a cottage and a motel unit for a weekend away. The staff were friendly and helpful. The place was spotless, and the continental breakfast was generous and tasty including fresh from the oven biscuits. When we requested an earlier breakfast, they accommodated us with no complaint.

This place was a little piece of heaven on our trip! First 2 nights in one of the cottages, and then the honeymoon sweet. Exceptional customer service, fridge, stove and everything you could need for a longer stay... Very clean, cozy and relaxing environment! I've been recommending them to all our family and friends, especially with their great rates!
