We stayed at the Inn overnight on the way to our vacation. It's a cozy old place, well fixed up and welcoming. We were treated to hot coffee and muffins for "early bird" on the way to the airport which was a nice touch. When we returned a week later we were picked up by the owner of the Inn,... More

My husband and I stayed there for a night this past weekend. It was incredible. Everyone was very kind and even took time to acknowledge our dog who travelled with us. The room was spotless and the bed extremely comfortable. My mind is still sitting in the jacuzzi. We will be coming back after the snow is gone so we... More

I have been regularly staying at this inn for many years now and obviously my experience was always very positive in the past so I keep coming back and have referred many friends as well. I spent this past weekend there with a friend. In general we were very satisfied with everything, as usual. Hence the 4 stars. But we... More

This place is a real gem! We stayed there for two nights bookending a trip to Mexico, we only chose it because of they allowed us to leave our vehicle and offered a free shuttle to Stanfield. However we discovered our new place to stay whenever we go to Halifax! It is very clean and its just small enough to... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here after a flight cancellation during a winter storm, when all other hotels were booked. For a difference of only $20 from the standard room, we opted for a room with a king bed and whirlpool tub; this upgrade is a must. The bed was hands down the most comfortable that I have ever slept... More

We were caught in a storm at arrival at Halifax Airport and our regular hotel, where our car was parked, was booked solid. All airport hotels were to full capacity due to the storm and flight cancellations. Our regular hotel contacted Inn On The Lake and they had 6 rooms left. It was a 10 minute tricky drive, after we...

Just about the cutest place I have ever stayed at! I unfortunately only got to stay here for one night, but it was a great experience.

I had my second stay at Inn on the Lake in January 2015. We were part of a business group. This is an ideal location to get in and out of the cities of both Halifax and Dartmouth and it is near the airport. Being winter, I wasn't able to experience the grounds, but the interior of the Inn is... More
