“lovely rustic retreat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2011

We stayed here at the begining of July. Just terrific. Like having a little cottage on the Bay of Fundy. Don, the owner, is really friendly and helpful. The location is fantastic. Not fancy, but clean. Everything you need in the kitchen. And nothing beat the view.

I arrived in Grand Pre after 9:00 pm. It was dark and I was traveling alone and just a bit edgy. I stopped at a number of motels and b&bs and none was open; lights out completely. Just as I had resigned to sleep in my rental car in a gas station parking lot I saw a small sign advertising the Beach Breeze on Evangeline Beach, with an arrow pointing down a long dark road. I took the chance and it changed everything. I phoned Don, using a number left on the door of the office. He was over in a moment, opened the room, said we'd settle up in the morning. The room was CLEAN and like a beach cottage. I awoke in the morning to the splashing sound of water not 50 ft from my door. High Tide!!!!! I stayed 3 nights and loved it. Don became a new friend. My room felt like home away from home. I learned about the extreme high and low tides of the Bay of Fundy first hand. I was just minutes away from the Grand Pre Center that tells the story of the expulsion of the Acadians from Nova Scotia. It wasn't fancy, but for me, the best of the best. I would recommend the Beach Breeze with confidence. Watch for bald eagles, read the guides along the shore explaining the importance of the Bay, and find someone to show you the diking system the Acadians used to hold back the sea. Read "Evangeline."
Have coffee and breakfast at the "free trade" coffee shop in town. Say hi to Don for me.

We asked the woman at the information Centre for recommendations on accomodation overlooking the ocean. She said that if you can overlook the appearance of an old building, the ownersof the Beach Breeze Motel have done a good job of sprucing up the rooms with new beds, washrooms, etc. She was right. Had we been driving along the road we would not have stopped. But the information we were given was accurate. We rented a room overlookng the bay and were treated to a spectacular view - watching those amazing tides come and go and captured incredible performances of thousands of sandpipers flying in rhythm over the bay in the evening. The property is a work in progress - but we're really glad we chose to stay. The owner (Don) shares a wealth of experience related to the area ... the tides, the birds, local attractions etc.

We spent two nights in cabin 5 - one of the two housekeeping units facing the water. Great accomodations and great view. Could have easily spent a week .
Innkeeper Don went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable.
The kids (9 and 13) spent hours walking the mud flats and coming the shoreline.

Be sure to check out the "Three Holes" swimming hole in white Rock off of Deep Hollow Road. (Not in any tourist brochure).

My husband and I booked this motel in the winter of 2010 for ourselves and a group of family/friends for our son's wedding in August. Dealings for the booking was done with Patsy over the phone. We were in touch several times to confirm numbers, rooms, etc. Every time we spoke, we were very happy and felt confident that what was said would be done!!!
When we arrived at the motel, we were greated by Don, the owner. (Patsy is his wife). What a great person Don is. He went over and above for us and our group.
The rooms were all very clean and up to date, yet rustic. Beautiful view and amazing service. We could not have asked for anything better. This was our home away from home for the 4 days we and our party were there, and we really did not want to leave.
Thank you Don and Patsy, we would return in a heart beat!! Maybe next trip, we will be grandparents (smile)..

This motel is right on the Evangeline Beach. The views are amazing, the service is personable (cheers to Patsy and Don), and the Monday/Saturday Bingo next door is worth the time. The miniature golf place that is located next to the motel is difficult and fun...well worth the money. The area wineries (make sure to visit Gaspereaux and have a tour by Aly) and history make this area worth the visit.
This motel has charm and a great location. The only thing it is lacking is pretension and an extremely comfortable bed. We found this hotel to be convenient and of high value. We recommend this stay to anyone interested in Wolfville or Grand Pre.
