Very friendly people, very nice experience of an old motel. Loved it, would have loved to have more time to stay! They let us visit the copola upstair where we signed our name! We had time to take a good breakfast in the morning like they use too in the old time

Wonderful old hotel, complete with "old building" quirks, a friendly staff, and comfortable facilities. You can get a glass of wine and sit on the veranda, watching the view and enjoying the sun. Lots of ways to relax and enjoy oneself on the island, and the guest rooms are meant to be slept in, not a retreat to hide in... More

Three of us stayed for two nights and had absolutely the best time! It was early in the season and we had the place practically to ourselves which was a bonus; Darlene took the most wonderful care of us. I won't write about all the wonderful things she did to make us comfortable because she may not be able to... More

We stayed here this past weekend Memorial Day for 2 days. I was very disappointed when first getting to the hotel. It needs a lot of work, updating and remodeling. We were on the third floor. The stairs are crooked going from first to second floor. We got to the room and had old wallpaper, small full size bed and... More

A unique experience, historic property, rustic site, the island is bleak in winter. Not for everyone. We were there for curling. A great birding library. Very busy in summer. Great whaling in summer. Spectacular views

Had the great pleasure of staying at this delightful Inn for a week in September. My wife and I were participants in a Road Scholar Birding group at the time. This remarkable in has so much character it is hard to express unless you see and feel it. As a group we stayed in the Annex part and the only... More

Although run down and shabby from the outside, it is a step back in time inside! Jim, the owner is friendly, helpful, informative and just a great guy. The room was full of antiques, clean and comfortable with a modern bathroom and flat screen TV. Although the bar and dining. For the evening were closed for the season, Jim provided... More

Recently spent a week at this lovely Inn on Grand Manan island in the Bay of Fundy. I was with a birding group, so meals were part of our experience, and they were uniformly wonderful! The staff and owner are warm and hospitable and eager to solve any potential problem. They provide a phone in the main living room with... More

I've had the pleasure of enjoying many a stay at this historic and unique inn over the years. From my very first visit over 20 years ago on business (helped host a photo workshop there with Freeman Paterson), the Marathon delivered in every way. Having been awestruck by the eerie resemblance to the Bates house in Psycho (I say this... More
