We stayed at this location for 3 nights in August 2015. Shining Waters is very close the the National Park. It's the only perk of staying at this location. During our 3 night stay, our tank ran of of propane, our dishwasher stopped working, our toilet leaked and our shower was plugged. The deck appeared to be rotted and the... More

My apologies for the issues you incurred during your recent stay. This has been our busiest summer in the last 15 years and clearly we have been somewhat overwhelmed by the volume. For over seven weeks we have been completely full and evidently we have not been able to fix all issues before the next guest has arrived. All of... More

Stayed in the three-bedroom deluxe cottage - the dishwasher didn't work (I think they knew that before we checked in) and we have a family of 5 staying for a week. They tried to fix it but after two tries, it didn't work. Oven didn't work, DVD didn't work, BBQ ran out of gas and the tank sat for two... More

The inn needs to be updated. The carpet is musty smelling in the main building. I used the common bathroom and the wallpaper was peeling off of the wall and the faucets were not clean. Our queen room was spacious and it had been cleaned adequately, however, everything in the Inn needs an update. No coffee maker, phone, or fridge... More

We recently spent a week in the executive cottage and found the unit to be very comfortable and a nice size. The resort is simple, but is very clean, has good amenities and is an excellent location - very close to Green Gables and within an easy and scenic walking distance to Cavendish Beach. The staff are friendly and provided... More

It was our first visit. It was quite large and had a lot in one spot for kids to see and do. I would recommend a shady spot put in around the splash pad. Parents are forced to stand or sit in the heat while keeping an eye on the young ones. Water slides were run well and lines weren't... More

We stayed at the Inn. The staff was outstanding from the moment we arrived. They let us store our bikes in the garage, offered their personal umbrellas for us to use on a rainy day, repaired our broken door handle within a few minutes, and were just fun to chat with! Having a sitting room with some books and tea... More

We selected this hotel as a recommended hotel in Cavendish Beach and weren't disappointed. The price was reasonable and included breakfast. We didn't realize it would be as rugged as it was, but we did sleep comfortably for the one night we were there and the shower was hot. They also have cottages available and a swimming pool.

From the website these looked nicer than they actually were. Our cabin was so uneven we needed boards to hold the doors open.....if you walked from the bathroom to the bedroom you were walking uphill! Bedding old, outdated, worn, and uncomfortable. Couch too uncomfortable to sit on. Pool was ok, playground old and dangerous. The owner was very friendly. I... More
