Pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Pictou Lodge has one of the most amazing water front locations. The cabins are situated so that just about everyone has a water view. Rustic in nature, but luxurious without being pretentious. Staff very friendly and down to earth. Our meals were some of the most amazing food we have eaten in a long time.... More

The location of this lodge is amazing - right on the coast - just perfect! The rooms are in connected chalets with an outside deck. Whilst very comfortable and with a separate sitting area the layout in a U shape did mean that there was no privacy on the deck. Bed was wonderfully comfy and I slept very well. Dinner... More

We found this place by accident - we were on a road trip with 3 kids and needed a place to stay in the area. We sure lucked out with this beautiful place. A log cabin style common lodge and cabins that overlook the ocean. The restaurant seems like it's going to impress (and for some of us it did),... More

We had a lovely log cabin overlooking the ocean. The food in the restaurant was also very nice. Unfortunately I woke up with a migraine, and the staff allowed us to keep our room for slightly longer, allowing me to sleep, without charging us extra. There was also a coin laundry on site.

Chose this lodging on TA reviews. Wonderful location on Northumberland Strait... I would suggest you call re-which room or lodging would fit your needs. There are many choices. We had 16A in Cedar Court. End unit close to water, nice. The dining room is reminesent of US national park lodges. Dinners were very good in dining room. I suspect that... More

What a lovely place! The grounds are so perfect for walking......there's a lake, stairs down to the beach..........I could spend a week here! We didn't have the opportunity to have dinner at the lodge, but hopefully next time!

There is a now a fitness center, the swimming pool is heated and the beach is expanded with beach lounges and a fire pit. The room we had in The Birches 9C was very clean and faced the ocean.

We arrived at 5:00 very tired but we were able to get dinner reservations.. Food was good and very good service.. Our rooms were very nice. We walked the grounds from the beach over to the lake .. Too cool for the pool but looked nice. We would stay here again if in the area.. Thank you
