Our extended family of 16 stayed in this fabulous resort from August 24 through to August 28, 2015. Our immediate family of 4 stayed in a 3 bedroom cottage. Each room has a bathroom which was quite convenient. The beds were very comfy. My favourite part of the cottage though was the screened-in Muskoka room overlooking the lake and looking... More

I recently got married at Pictou Lodge and cannot say enough great things. The facility is fabulous, the staff were exceptional and the food was delicious. Everyone at the wedding had a great time and the staff worked super hard to ensure we had a great time as well. We cannot wait to come back!!!

The meals were very nice. But our room had no AC. It was 26 degrees in our room and we couldn't sleep. When contacting them they were very ignorant and would do a thing for us. Never coming back. They recommended we leave. The AC units in the room need to be upgraded. Very very difficult to sleep

Wes S, General Manager at Pictou Lodge Beachfront Resort, responded to this review

Dear Matthew, I apologize again that the air conditioner did not meet your standards. It was indeed a hot week! I am sorry to hear the extra mobile air conditioner did not help as well. We did try everything we could to assist, but unfortunately we did not meet your expectations. Sorry we could not make your stay more comfortable. More

We just stumbled onto Pictou Lodge during a recent outing to Nova Scotia from our home in PEI. We have lived close to this lodge for over 40 years, but had never actually seen it. We asked if we could have dinner in the beautiful oceanside dining room, and the hostess said "Sure...come in!" The staff was very professional and... More

First time visit. Lots of visitors and lots to do around the resort. We stayed in a three bedroom cottage with three bathrooms. This was great for our group of four. The screened-in porch with Adirondack chairs was a lovely spot to sit and enjoy the water views. The beds were very comfortable. The cottage was old but well-maintained. The... More

While passing the Pictou area on the Trans Canada Highway, we were ready to have lunch at about 1 PM. It was a beautiful day, so I suggested the Pictou Lodge. My travelling companion didn't know the place, but I had had the pleasure of having lunch there a few years ago. Upon arrival, we were happily given a window... More

Sometimes change is good, sometimes not. The recent changes to the Pictou Lodge dining room are on the plus side of the ledger. Backstory: About 6 years ago we were camping at Caribou-Munroe's Island, and on a whim walked down the beach for dinner at Pictou Lodge. We loved the vintage feel of the dining room with the log walls... More

Fantastic waterfront resort within minutes of the PEI gateway to Nova Scotia Plenty of unique shopping in The Town of Pictou with restaurants, pubs, museums, and don't you dare miss the Ship Hector!! The Pictou Lodge Beachfront Resort is on a beautiful long beach with the warmest waters north of the Carolinas.

Just returned home from four perfect days at Pictou Lodge Beach Resort located on the Northumberland Shore in Nova Scotia! Staff was beyond friendly and helpful, food was delectable, view was spectacular and there was so much to keep you entertained that you never had to leave the complex! Hats off to Manager Wes Surette and his team!

We stayed there for one night. It is a bit out of the way, but nice for a family vacation. The hotel has a variety of room and bungalows, some with some without views. Clean and well appointed rooms but nothing special. Staff friendly and helpful. Well located for nice long walks on the beach. Wifi was iffy. The dinner... More
