I have never written a review for any place I have ever stayed but I must for Ye Olde Argyler Lodge.
My mom and I just returned home from a weeks stay at this beautiful lodge! I have so much to say, I suppose I'll start at the beginning. When I was planning our trip to Nova Scotia I searched the internet for a special place to stay. I found it! My original phone call was answered by Jonathan (later to discover he is the chef extraordinaire)! He couldn't have been more helpful. My elderly mom needed something extra in the room and he was more than willing to make sure it was there when we arrived. It was there!
It's overwhelming when you drive up to the lodge for the first time. The beauty of the actual lodge surrounded by lush gardens and the sea in the background is mesmerizing.
We entered into the lodge and were immediately greeted by Jay, a gentleman who was beaming with joy. Moments later, we were greeted by an equally joyful woman, Lois. We felt as if we had just come home to our long lost relatives.
We stayed in the Captains Quarters. Roomy, very comfortable, luxioriosly soft sheets and towels, decorated beautifully and amazing views. But I think the cleanliness of the room was the most memorable. It was spotless.
The food! It is more than apparent that Chef Jon knows his way around the kitchen and prepares amazing dishes. Each meal was wonderful, prepared with that little extra passion that you don't learn in culinary school. Travelers and locals are very fortunate to have Chef Jon preparing their meals. Jon's sous chef, Lois (his mom), also does very well in the kitchen. Lois prepared breakfast for us every morning. Her waffles are a must! And I can't forget Jay, always ready to warm up your coffee, pour a glass of juice and hand you the morning newspaper; all with a warm smile.
Ye Olde Argyler Lodge is a hidden gem! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone I know. It would be perfect for a family vacation, a family reunion, a wonderful romantic getaway or a getaway with friends. I can't say enough about the proprietors: Lois, Jay and Jonathan. They are all passionate about their Lodge and taking great care of all their guests. I plan to return again and again!
