3 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

We stayed here for one night in Aug 2014. Our cabin had a queen-sized bed and a sleeper sofa, which accommodated our group of 3. There was a comfortable sitting area, which was much appreciated after a long day of biking. However, we found the service a bit off-putting. You are required to order your meals 24 hours in advance.... More

We are from New Hampshire and had never been to Nova Scotia. We enjoyed our experience so much at the Inn! The grounds were beautiful, the food was the Best and the Owners were so nice. We would recommend this as a great place to stay and would love to come back soon!

We were assigned a chalet cabin which was nicely laid out and with a propane fireplace to keep us warm. The furniture was just plain "Old" and it totally lacked any charm. We chose to try it here as we often stay at their sister property The Blomidon Inn in Wolfville NS which is wonderful and always fun. It was... More

This was our last stop in Nova Scotia and what's very, very special place. We stayed in the inn cottage, as it had a washer and dryer in the bathroom and after six weeks of car travel we needed them. We were right on the water and could enjoy watching the tides come and go plus look across the water... More

Our room was in the basement and had zero charm, and our host was nearly incommunicative. But the dinner made up for it all - probably the best meal, with home-grown fruits and vegetables, that we'd had on our whole trip. With seating for only 16 at dinner, you're guaranteed excellent service and attention. Breakfast was quite good, too. There's... More

Our accommodations in the chalets were very comfortable, our group of four couples enjoyed having these cottages for our holiday. The propane fireplace helped to take the chill off from a rainy day on the golf course. The golf package with two spectacular dinners and full breakfasts was the perfect fit for our group. Mary was a very welcoming host... More

Mary and Rob provide an extraordinary meal that includes vegetables and herbs freshly picked from their beautiful garden. Dinner began with fresh tomato bisque and then a mixed green salad with perfectly ripened peaches and a light vinaigrette dressing. The chicken wrapped in prosciutto and stuffed with brie was accompanied by perfectly prepared baby vegetables from the garden. Dessert included... More

We did not get to do their dinner because of late golf down the road in Pugwash but our room was cooled and cozy when we arrived. Mary and Rob were gracious and the French toast breakfast next AM was excellent. The view from their dining windows and a short walk down the hill are goregous over the strait and... More

Mary received us so well! Not only were we impressed by the quality of our accommodations and our meals but when the bill came, the "package deal rate" was applied and we spent less than expected. Now that's not an everyday occurrence. The sea side location is another bonus and we could go on. Ok. A bit more, Mary's hubby... More

What a wonderful place to stay, catch your breath, enjoy wonderful food, and take in the ocean! The rooms are awesome. We stayed in a chalet which I highly recommend. There's even a beach. The gourmet food was absolutely amazing. I can't say enough about it....can't wait to go back and stay longer!
