We arrived mid morning on a rainy Saturday holiday weekend. Very pleased to find our room was ready early which was very nice. We walked up the trail to the Creamery Square for the Farmers Market - quite a nice market. Walked along Main Street and then back to the Inn. All of this was a short stroll from the Inn which was nice because we could leave the car and not worry about the traffic (important during the market as the place was very busy). Visited several museums in the area over the weekend all within a relatively short drive of the inn - Balmoral Grist Mill, Sutherland Steam Mill, Jost winery, etc. It was nice having the Inn on the Trans Canada Trail as we could walk the dog for hours. Found two nice parks where we could stop and rest while the dog ran and swam. Met a group of Micmaq giving a nature tour. Next time we will have to look into this.
The Inn - fabulous! So cute and unique. The gift shop has some interesting toys and items, lots of antiques, We stayed in Boxcar Jimmie, probably one of the smaller rooms. It suited us perfectly, rustic but charming and pet friendly. Everyone staff member we met was warm and friendly. The room was very warm so the AC was necessary. Only thing is we are short and the AC unit is quite high up on the wall. Appreciated having the fridge as we weren't expecting it. The best part was the food - OMG it was good. Although the prices appeared a little high at first we found it cost us half of what we had paid for a similar meal the weekend before elsewhere and was of even better quality. Our package included drinks and dessert as well as breakfast so we really felt we got great value for our money. Breakfast was also nice the next morning in the café. Had a nice chat with the owner Jim. The story of the Inn is so interesting. Would highly recommend it to anyone.
