Two rooms with a shared bath are available above the Wild Caraway restaurant. The room was clean and comfortable with a large window overlooking the bay. It is a nice choice if staying in Advocate Harbour as there are not many options. The rooms are older so the doors and floors are a bit squeaky, adds to the charm. The... More

Thanks again Sarah and Andrew for another great stay. Having two French Presses and milk in the fridge for our morning coffee is just the kind of wonderful touch that makes this place so special. The breakfast you served on your "day off" was amazing: fresh sour dough bread, Andrew's own smoked arctic char and other goodies.

Over a year and plenty of hotels later this is still one of our most favourite. The town is very beautiful, you feel like you have the place to yourself, the people that love here are very lucky. Of course, we ate every meal at the wild caraway and each was fabulous. If you are in Nova Scotia, try and... More

The 4 of us booked both upstairs rooms. We had comfortable beds and a great view of the Harbour. There was a coffee brewer, hot water pot, refrig and stocked with everything. We arrived early enough to eat our evening meal there. The food was excellent. The service was friendly and prompt. We were served some complimentary treats and I... More

Three times a year I make the 10 hour drive from Brunswick, ME to Advocate Harbour for the scenery and the food. Since 2009 I have eaten close to 50 meals at the Wild Caraway and never had a bad experience. If your idea of a good meal is an assembly line plate at a franchise, then the Wild Caraway... More

So, after months of anticipating a great meal at this restaurant, the four people in my party were disappointed. I am surprised by the high ratings on tripadvisor. PROS - Decor is nice, staff are friendly. Nice quiet location. They gave us a little coconut ball thingie instead of the usual mint after supper. CONS - Ordered beers and wine.... More

Last year we discovered this restaurant during our Nova Shores kayaking adventure. This year we could hardly wait to get there again and it did not disappoint. The Wild Caraway is a five-star quality dining experience. This year I photographed every course. Every one a work of art! From appetizers to dessert the food is absolutely delicious, delicious, delicious. I... More

Wild Caraway We stayed 3 nights in Wild Caraway. This is an old home with lots of character. A nice mix of antique with some modern artwork. The restaurant is on the first floor and the 2 guest rooms are on the second floor. The room key is an old skeleton key that works just fine, and there is a... More

My husband and I stayed a night and really enjoyed the time we spent here. First and foremost the food in the restaurant is absolutely delicious!!! If you're lucky enough to spend the night here, I highly recommend getting french toast for breakfast, it is the best!!! Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, served with local maple syrup,...

Great 2 night stay at the Wild Caraway. Advocate Harbour is an out of the way location, but really the best place to stay if you want to kayak in the Bay of Fundy and hike at Cape Chignecto. If you're looking for an overpriced, luxury room with pretentious hosts, neither Advocate Harbour nor the Wild Caraway are for you.... More
