“Beautiful setting close to Port Arthur historic site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2010

We did not have reservations upon our arrival in Port Arthur. We planned on visiting Port Arthur historic site the following day, so wanted to find close accommodations. We stopped at a couple places, and the rates were a bit high for our budget. As we drove down Safety Cove Road we saw a sign advertising reasonable rates from what we have fond thus far. We drove up the driveway and were immediately greeted by the proprietors Ben and Jacqui. They were very friendly and welcoming, and Jacqui offered to show us the rooms she has available. There were two, one was a larger suite with 2 bedrooms and one smaller with one bedroom. We choose the smaller as it was just my wife and I and our toddler. Both rooms have direct views of the picturesque bay. The next morning we walked the well manicured property. Ben was out feeding their horse, so it added treat for our daughter to visit and pet her. The hospitality that Ben and Jacqui provided was much appreciated. They were very knowledge on the local dining and sites, and provided various options and recommendations.
