Our fourth visit and first time in Sareth Beach House. Just the right size for our family getaway. Has everything you needed. Great space for snowshoeing in the winter. Very comfortable. Felt like home.

Although we have stayed at Cambra Sands 5 times, this was our first time during the snowy season. It was pleasant and serene. As always, the owner and staff were so friendly and accommodating. Although snowbound for a couple of days, the cottage was warm and inviting. It felt like home. The care and attention to detail was superb. Every... More

Spent Valentines weekend here and was pleasantly surprised by the lovely accommodations and scenery. Very clean, spacious, and modern facilities. Staff are very warm and friendly. Ended up being stranded for an extra night due to a storm and the staff went above and beyond to make it enjoyable for us despite the circumstances. I would 100% recommend this place... More

Spent new years eve and day with family at the aurora and Arabel cottages. Beautiful spot and amazing location right on the water. We would all love to return to the cottages during the summer months but winter was just as beautiful. Fully furnished, decorated and stocked cottages. Perfect for a few families to come together. Love love loved it!... More

Arrived with another couple on Thanksgiving and spent 4 wonderful days in the Caledonia Cottage. Property was immaculate and we loved the ocean view from the dining nook. Cottage exceeded our expectations and we especially loved the attention to detail in every room. Resort is close to Tatamagouche for good food, and also the Jost Winery. Looking forward to a...

We spent the weekend at Cambra Sands while we attended a wedding in the area. Our group occupied three of the cottages and we all had amazing experiences. From enjoying the hot tub, sitting around the campfire at night, enjoying walks on the beach everything was way beyond expectation. All cottages were warm and inviting with plenty of space including... More

We booked our cottage for a bachelorette party and it was the most lovely of places to go. Our cottage was beautiful, tidy, tasteful decorations, and very spacious. (Leander). The hot tub and fire pit along the beautiful beachline are just a huge bonus to an already amazing retreat. The best thing about this location is that you are quite... More

We have been going to Cambra Sands for years now and it is still our favorite home away from home. The cottages are lovely, the area is peaceful, and we always hate to leave. Would love to stay for the whole summer! Only negative this year was the lack of working WiFi, but that just forced us to completely forget... More

What an incredible stay at Cambra. The cozy cottages are modern, very clean and well maintained with all amenities - including an outdoor hot tub on site! That was the highlight of our stay. The ocean view at the edge of the well-manicured lawn was fantastic. Well done Cambra!!
