Salmon fishing on the Margaree - this is the perfect place to stay. Edsel and Carol are wonderful hosts - kind, warm and very friendly. Peggy keeps the cottage clean and provides daily linens. The cottages are very well equipped and quite cosy. Contrary to another review here, there is WiFi in the cottages, but sometimes it is intermittent when... More

Four of us stayed at the River Trail Cottages when we were on our way to Cheticamp, and we nearly changed our plans so that we could stay longer in the beautiful Margaree Valley. The cottages at River Trail are modern, clean, and well-stocked, and we found the whole Loyalist history of that area very interesting. After the bustle of... More

This is another marvelous accommodation in the Margaree Valley. The cabins are modern and comfortable, and come fully equipped with a kitchen, dining area, living room, and individual bedroom(s), depending on the size of the cabin. They are beautifully situated, and the owners, Carol and Edsel Hart, make you feel very much at home. The cabins are near working farms,... More
