Walked to Lighthouse was nice with great scenery. However we attempted a trail walk on the side which was not well marked or maintained. If the day had been clearer the views from the lighthouse would have been better. All in all worth the drive up the dirt road.

We went to The Lighthouse Restaurant recently and truly had a wonderful experience! The scenery around there is so breathtaking, pictures do not even reveal the actual beauty of the premises! The restaurant owner Darcy is so hospitable and friendly...makes you feel right at home not to mention his cooking skills.Lunch was delicious and very reasonable. Highly recommend this location...gives... More

The view is spectacular, the food is delicious but the real delight at theThe Lighthouse on Cape d'Or was the host! My husband and I were so warmly welcomed and hosted by Darcy. Could not have been a more memorable evening, night and morning. We're already planning our next visit. Highly recommend for those who wold really like to experience... More

This is a special spot to stay at. You can enjoy views of the Bay of Fundy virtually from your bed, breakfast is to die for, and the 3-course dinner chef and host Darcy puts together is one of the best I enjoyed during my visit to Nova Scotia. Thanks for a great experience!

Host Darcy was so gracious and accomodating to my sister and me when we arrived late in the day. He fixed a 5-star meal for us, and made sure we were very comfortable in the Guest House. Darcy gave us great advice about what to see in the area and where to eat. Couldn't have been more helpful. We agree... More

Had the best lobster boil today! Darcy was great in teaching my friend and I how to best extract our lobster meat. The salad, sides and rubarb crisp were AMAZING! Will definitely be coming back. The view while eating outside could also not be beat. A gem of a place!

My husband and I spent one night in the lighthouse guest house and loved it. The only room with private bath was already reserved, and we did not want to share a bath, so we were able to book the 2 rooms which shared a bath, and that gave us lots of space. We had a wonderful dinner and great... More

This is a wonderful spot! We stayed two nights at the guesthouse and loved it. The guesthouse has four rooms for rent with a common living area/kitchenette (fridge/kettle/sink). We rented Room #1, which has a private entrance and a small bath – the compromise is that the shower is really tiny. Our hosts were friendly and helpful, and the food... More

My husband and I were there last week for our anniversary and it was fantastic. The views are incredible, the cuisine is delicious, and Darcy is a wonderful host. We had the best meal of our trip, saw the super moon rise over the Ocean and watched the sun set. The light-house keepers cabin is homey and meticulously clean with... More

My husband and I stayed one night at the Lightkeeper's Kitchen & Guest House. The location is rugged and breathtaking and worth the 6 km gravel road drive in from the main road, and the walking hike from the upper level parking area, down the long, gravel hill walkway to access the property. The accommodations were comfortable, very clean but... More
