The rooms are simple but clean. We has two queen sized beds on the water side. The beds were comfortable. The room had a small tv, table with two chairs, a fridge, microwave and few dishes. The bathroom was clean, but basic vanity, the front of the vanity was plywood - but all clean. The breakfast is included and there... More

We stayed at this motel mid-October on a trip around the Cabot Trail. It is an older motel and while it certainly shows its' age, they do keep it nice and clean. Unfortunately, due to age and climate, there is a distinct odor when you enter....quite musty and "old". That being said, it certainly would not be a reason to... More

We had just traveled for several hours only to run into issues at a pre-booked location so we needed to move on and luckily came across the Trailsman later in the evening. We were greeted by a very welcoming young lady that understood our journey and gave us their best room for a reasonable price. The motel has a pool... More

Convenient to Cabot Trail. Beds were comfortable. Bread & muffins are from local bakery. Computer available for Internet access. Most units are single story; however, we got one beneath another unit. Walls & ceiling are thin. Noise transmitted easily between spaces. Strongly recommend that specific directions be obtained to locate the motel. Do NOT rely on car GPS! Motel is... More

We stayed here while exploring the Cabot Trail and were very pleased. The rooms are a little tired, but are very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is nice (great muffins and fruit) and served in a room with a beautiful view of the lake. The hotel is very close to the entrance to the Cabot Trail, but further away from... More

This hotel was reasonably priced, clean and offered a nice breakfast. The air conditioning worked well, beds were comfortable and a back door to the lake was very nice. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The issues were the water pressure in the shower was quite low and the water turned cold now and then during an average length... More

We chose this hotel because of the reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. The room was very clean and the staff super friendly. The breakfast was great with homemade bread, fresh fruit and homemade oatcakes. I would certainly stay there again!!!

Rooms with modern fittings. They have good facilities, outdoor pool and laundry. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was included. Home made bread and muffins, juice, cereal. A suggestion would be to have a hot item such as eggs or bacon. This is very close to Cabot Trail. It was quiet. Perfect view of the lake from our room. Would stay here... More
