We stayed at the Liscombe lodge for ome night on our trip from Cape Breton to Halifax. Hindsight we could have avoided the D-tour and travelled straight to Halifax as it took us as much time to reach Liscombe via the coastal backroads as it would have taken us to drive straight to Halifax. The resort is somewhat stuck in... More

Liscombe Lodge is a great destination on the Eastern Shore for a family. The setting is peaceful and welcoming along the river. There are lots of things to do for families - from canoeing to tennis and paddleboats and shuffleboard. The rooms are basic motel like rooms (there are also cabins) - with pleasant views of the river. There is... More

We spent several days surfing the web before happening upon the Liscombe Lodge and deciding to book a stay. Let me just say that it was well worth the wait and the work! The resort is literally out in the middle of almost nowhere. The nearest town of any size is Sherbrooke and that's about a twenty five minute drive.... More

We booked a chalet at Liscombe on a BOGO deal off their website so we got an absolutely great price on a chalet for 2 nights. We had a wonderful stay and I'll break it down into three categories below but overall the staff was very kind, approachable and helpful. The resort is a little dated but it has rustic... More

Liscombe Lodge has all that we were looking for in a vacation destination - choice of accommodation - we were in the lodge where all rooms have private balconies overlooking the beautiful river - so relaxing to have the water and woodland literally feet from our deck - a great view in the morning! There is lots to do (all... More

This is a lovely spot if you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing setting. The room we had wasn't special and the bed was so soft we felt like we would fold in half! I was disappointed as I thought for the price it would be nicer. The highlight of the dining room was the view of birds, drawn close... More

We were on a boat at the Lodge's dock, so only went to the restaurant. Most of the food was well prepared and good, except for their signature dish: Planked Salmon. We were expecting wild caught salmon, freshly planked. What we got was farmed salmon, planked at some unknown date in the past. Not what was expected. Service was friendly... More

We originally called in here in 1976, on our honeymoon, just to have a look around. This year we were in Nova Scotia, and just happened to remember what we saw back then, so decided to stop in and stay for a couple of days. Now we are wondering why we waited so long, it was the highlight of our... More

We stopped at this hotel on our way from Lunenburg to Cape Breton Island. The grounds are nice and well kept. The weather was rainy so we were not able to enjoy walking around the hotel. Check in was fine, we arrived a little late @ 7pm, and the lady at the front desk seemed tired. I asked about getting... More
