Driving up the coast of Nova Scotia, this seemed like a place to stop for the evening. I arrived late due to bad timing on my part. I had registered ahead of time so I was expected. My friend and I were the only guests at the lodge that evening. We were warmly welcomed. I had eaten at a restaurant about 30 minutes away as I had been told that the restaurants in Sherbrooke closed at 7pm.
I have to say out of all the places I have stayed at over the last week or so, this was the worst. The room was small and smelled of mildew. There were 2 single beds in the room and they were so close together I could reach over and touch the other bed while laying down in mine. The mattresses were soft and lumpy. It felt like there was no box spring under the thin mattress. Is was very uncomfortable. The room is in desperate need of a renovation. Only the bathroom seemed to have been recently modernized. Thankfully I arrived late and was leaving early. I could not wait to get out of the room. There was also only one tiny table in the corner. Power outlets were far away so it was difficult to plug in a laptop and sit down at the tiny table. Thankfully I had an extension cord with me that we could use.
I went out for a late night walk just so I would not have to be in the room any longer than necessary.
Breakfast in the morning was good as as the service.
As a whole, the service was great, but the accommodations certainly could use a lot of sprucing up. Basically the beds are in dire need of an upgrade if nothing else. I woke up sore and stiff.
