We stop here one night on our road trip this fall. It was pretty quite, but nice accommodations. nothing fancy, similar to a hotel room. I imagine this would be a great stop in the summer. we didn't do much as it was a colder Sept evening. but they had complementary bikes for use, beach fire pits ready to go.... More

This place is beautiful and we have been going for years at least once a season for dinner or lunch in the gorgeous lodge, and have always had a very good to excellent meal. We decided to stay at a cabin this time - just one night - and were disappointed that despite a guaranteed reservation, the heat had not... More

Dear LeslieM680, Thank you for your review and thank you for your continued business. I apologize for your poor experience here this time. As you can see from our reviews, our consistency in food has been quite good. Not sure why your meal was not up to par. We do traditionally heat up rooms, especially at that time of year.... More

We were somewhat suspicious of the great reviews, but now we join the crowd. The food is simply outstanding. Mussels, chowder, unusual pairings, wines, all just delicious. Each night the chef offered a taste of something interesting: One night it was a fish concoction, the next night a guacamole-based tasting. On our last morning I had Lobster Benedict. Each egg...

We only stated for a brief overnight visit and didn't get to fully appreciate this resort. Desk staff very pleasant and helpful, supper in the pub area delicious with the server going out of her way to make us comfortable. Room clean with usual facilities you would expect. However, there is a continuous smell in the air which at first... More

This lodge is in a great location for a holiday. The position on the waterfront itself, The Hector Heritage Quay, Ferry terminal nearby, the Fortress of Louisbourg and of course relaxing on your own patio enjoying the swimmingpool or the sea , having a barbecue, going for bike rides or hikes visiting a vineyard. The Lodges are spacious with all... More

We rented a three bedroom cottage expecting a touch of luxury and were a bit disappointed to find that it was a bit like an accommodation one might have found back in the forties. Sloping floors and rather antiquated bathrooms. The beds however were very comfortable and having a fireplace and full kitchen was a definite plus. The restaurant was... More

Thank you for your review! It sounds like our Executive Chalets would have been a much better fit for you than our traditional cottages. Glad you enjoyed the other amenities on site. We do have a wide range of accommodations available, it is definitely worth review all accommodation types before making booking to find the right fit! More

We stayed at the Pictou Lodge for 3 days. Since we were there in the off-season, it was quiet and picturesque. We stayed in a two bedroom chalet which had beautiful views of the pond and the sea. There was a deck with a stretch of grass that was great for my 3 year old & 7 month old to... More

My husband and I stayed there for our 20TH Anniversary. The staff was very friendly and explained all the different things that we could do during our stay. They had a map to show us exactly where we could find everything at. We stayed and enjoyed the beautiful restaurant which was unbelievably one of the best suppers we had ever... More
