After taking the ferry from PEI, we ended up at Waterview - a quaint cottage in a wooded area overlooking the water. The room was clean and comfortable - very spacious for the two of us! Gerhardt and Gabriela were incredibly friendly, and provided a delicious meal (very generous in size) and fantastic company and conversation. With only one other... More

I write this review with mixed emotions -- on the one hand the Austrian owners were great hosts and we had an enjoyable stay and a great nights sleep. On the other hand, the isolated location and appearance of the property leave a lot to be desired. Because the restaurant on the property is now closed, you have to drive... More

We stayed here for one night and wished it was more. Gerhardt and Gabriela are wonderful hosts - very welcoming and friendly, but let us do our thing. Since it was our anniversary, we booked a romantic dinner package, and it was fantastic. Delicious Austrian schnitzel and a perfect bottle of Austrian wine were the highlights. We didn't have room...

This was a nice and quite place for a perfect getaway. The hosts were very welcoming and always smiling. Even though the road was under construction, we still managed to find and enjoy the close by long sand beaches of Northumberland strait. In the evening a delicious Austrian Schnitzel and an apple strudel for desert were waiting for us at... More

We stayed at this charming B&B near Pictou for the last night of our vacation. Dinner at the Resto, Café Europa was a delicious authentic Austrian schnitzel and homemade spaetzle. We can imagine the fireplace would be cozy in winter but didn't need it while we were there. The bridge construction has caused some worrisome "detour" signs but just ignore... More

So relaxing and the room had everything we needed. The view was very relaxing. We had supper in their restaurant which was very enjoyable. Breakfast was also great. We would... More

We ate at this restaurant [Cafe Europa], while passing through. Its truly like a trip to Austria with great ambience and traditional music. There is also the lovely Caribou river view . The food is good, the Cafe Europa Schnitzel was delicious, with the best Spaetzli we have had, and we have had lots. The Hungarian goulash my husband had... More

The Waterview is a hidden gem in a very quiet setting . Our stay was a wonderful way to end our vacation. The room was well decorated and it felt like a mini chalet in the Alps. Gabriela's wonderful food ( we had the schnitzel and homemade spätzle) combined with Gerhard's attentive hosting made for a wonderful evening. We highly... More

Although a little outside Pictou, the Waterview is well worth the drive. We stayed in the Vienna Room (I think). It was very clean, nicely decorated and the king size bed was quite comfortable. The food, served at the Cafe Europe Restaurant was amazing. Highly recommend!!!
