I have tried to contact the owner 4 times, and no one is returning my calls. I booked 2 rooms, one for myself and my children, one for my grandparents who are in their 80's and my grandfather walks with a cane. At the time of booking, I asked to be placed on the main floor. The employee said that... More

Most of all the staff were Wonderful! They were very accommodating, providing us with a cork screw, wine glasses... More

we paid $140 plus HST so $161 total for a mediocre room. the king bed was two pushed together and the overall decorating needed updating. There was no view. The grounds were beautiful but only 4 sad adirondack chairs were available for seating. the deck to get to the room was very decrepit. would not stay here again.

Dear Sanderc~ We are very sorry that you felt that your room ( including a farm to table breakfast) was not worth the $140 rate. I am puzzled by the comments that room needs updating. That room was completely renovated in 2014 from new wooden flooring, new walls with wainscoting, new king bed, mostly new furnishing ( those that are... More

We took a group of about 20 musicians here to watch a local band perform, which I might add was great with the audience participation factor. We enjoyed some excellent local seafood fare beforehand, and sampled some excellent local Nova Scotia wines and beers. It was a great night, the staff handled the absolutely packed venue with talent and aplomb.

When we arrived in the late afternoon, we were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves upgraded for no extra charge. And that was just the beginning of all the pleasant surprises this location offered. Though our view wasn't directly onto the river, just a quick peek around the corner gave us some fantastic views. The best view, however, was the room... More

We spent one night at Lanes and would have stayed longer if time had allowed. The was clean and comfortable and the view from our window was the Mercy River. It was beautiful and peaceful with a veranda to have coffee on if you choose to. The dining room was lovely with attentive staff and the best fish and chips... More

Hello Barry~ Thanks for staying with us and taking the time to write a review. Privateer Days is the busiest time of year and perhaps the reason for your wait in the restaurant.

Spent Saturday night at Lanes and have to say we truly enjoyed our stay & hope to return. What stood out the most was the staff. The two gentlemen that worked the the fast paced dining room on Saturday evening were excellent. The pride of independent ownership shines through at this establishment. Loved the entertainment.

Traditional Inn with pub and restaurant. They made a wonderful job renovating the place. Large rooms, with all the faclities, view on the river, niewspaper in the morning, great farmers breakfast, good draught beers, wooden floors, and their sense of humour.... On the door, it says: come in, baby it's cold out there!
