This was an anniversary trip for a couple of nights on Nova Scotia's north shore. We booked a chalet that included 4-poster bed, kitchenette, in-room jacuzzi-style tub, flat-screen TV with decent channel lineup, wifi, a/c (which we used) and fireplace (which we didn't). Mary and Robert were wonderful hosts with a wonderfully attentive staff, who, among other things, picked up... More

Stayed a night at the Amherst Shore Inn. Had supper and breakfast in the dinning room. This is a great place to stay. The chalets are overlook the shore. It is a short walk to the beach. The dining room offers a beautiful view of the water. The meals were excellent. The service was excellent. We very much enjoyed our... More

We stayed three nights in a chalet with a beautiful view of the ocean and enjoyed walking around the lovely, large property. The morning scones and four course dinner were truly excellent (the mushroom soup was particularly good). Most of all, Mary was a wonderful host, giving advice for getting around the area and going the extra mile to contact... More

The dining experience is fantastic. In season all vegetables and herbs are grown on site. It's truly amazing to watch a chef pick these items in the afternoon and enjoy the freshest salads, soups etc that evening. There is only one sitting in the evening-enabling a leisurely evening of multi course dining. Freshly baked bread: two appetizers; entrée and desert... More

We dined here with friends. The dining room probably sits less than 25 people, and as a result you pre-order your meal, choosing from two selections. The dining room is charming and enjoys an ocean view. Pre-dinner drinks are available in the living room. The table settings were lovely. Service was attentive, and the food was excellent. Expect vegetables fresh... More

We came fromManitoba for a family wedding, booking the Inn well in advance. The Inn has a variety of acommodation including suites and rooms in the main building and detached chalets nearby. There is a vast area of manicured lawn and garden between the Inn and the ocean, about 150 meters away, which makes being outdoors a real pleasure. We... More

We stayed in many B&Bs on our two week vacation spanning 2,600 miles. This was undoubtedly the most serene and beautiful of them all. Add delicious breakfast and a gastronomic delight for dinner. Unbeatable.

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
