I was here during a wedding in the end of June and have to say that this place is very cute and love all the little ducks & other little stuffed animals. Now I didn't stay here as a guest but I did partake in the buffet breakfast and have to say that it was very delicious food, staff were... More

We booked this inn a week prior. Great location, above the highway, we had a nice balcony overlooking the bay. Room was small but functional. This Inn looked like it was designed more for hunters than families. No air conditioning in the room, which was our fault for not verifying, but disappointing anyway. Disappointed that breakfast was not included as... More

Older motel and lodge overlooking historic salmon river and close to many tourism attractions. Very clean and comfortable room (has been renovated) in the main lodge. Some traffic noise as the property is on the main road to Cheticamp. Restaurant overlooks the river, service there was good, breakfast adequate. Room had no air conditioner but did have a good fan...and... More

Stayed in the outer building where the rooms were older. View was pretty good. Got our own plastic chairs to sit on. Breakfast was not complimentary but there was a restaurant on site. Decent food; poorer service. Owner, Gordon, was quiet but helpful.

We had an upstairs room in the main building, adjoining the office and restaurant, and I am sure these must be the best rooms to have - they have balconies with a beautiful view over the river. The room was clean and appeared to have been quite newly decorated although the furniture was old and the beds creaked every time... More

We were fortunate to find this place, it was listed in the Doers & Dreamers Tourist Guide which is a great resurce - and they will send you one free when you're planning a trip. Plus the Park Guide at the entrance to the Cabot Trail was nice enough to suggest we call ahead to make a booking, then she... More

Clean, comfortable, reasonably priced lodging. Beautiful views overlooking Margaree Harbour and you can see bald eagles fly past most mornings. Friendly service and the food is quite good too.

The room was dry but smelled as though it hadn't been opened up for a very long time. The decor was from the 60's and the towel behind the toilet (to catch the drips) was a bit creepy.
