Fabulous 3 days at this clean welcoming motel. Carol provided great continental breakfasts with homemade treats. Most beautiful beaches, almost too nice to share with the world! Nice local restaurant across the street with weekly local musicians performing. Highly recommend this well kept secret!

We always stay in the motel rooms facing beautiful Mavillette beach, stunning sunsets and vistas. The best part is that you have a unblocked view right down to the water. Close proximity to digby if you're coming off ferry from st john. Don't change a thing!

Stayed at the Cape View on our last night of our Nova Scotia holiday. We were booked into the motel room next to the office (#5) and so happy with the stunning views of Mavillette Beach right out our back door! Russ and Carol, thank you so much for making our short stay so memorable! You obviously know how to... More

I recently spent a night at the Cape view with 3 friends. Our hosts were friendly & welcoming. The room was very clean & comfortable & the view from the room was amazing. I would definitely stay at the Cape view again.

Two of us spent four nights at the Cape View Motel and Cottages and loved every moment of it. The couple who run the place--Russ and Carol--are gracious and helpful hosts. They know about all the good places to eat, shop, and see. The rooms are simple, unadorned, comfortable. But the rooms are not really what you go there for... More

My husband and I stayed one night and were blessed with wonderful weather. We spent the afternoon walking the (almost private) beach and even got into the water a bit which was quite warm. We fell asleep on our beach blanket then walked some more. Supper was very good seafood at the restaurant across the road but we could have... More

This was the first time we stayed at the Cape View and we were quite pleased. While not fancy, it was neat and clean. The view of the Bay of Fundy from our back window was amazing. They have a list of requests on the back of the room's front door; and that is what they are - requests, not... More

Thanks for the review Melissa. We happy you enjoyed our property but sad to hear we had a problem in the room. If we had known a problem existed we could have fixed at once or quickly moved to another room. We are very sorry for that issue and it will be fixed as soon as the hardware store opens... More
