My parents and I stayed at the Chanterelle for 5 nights and we would have to say it was the highlight of our 2 week trip around Nova Scotia. Our room was spacious and well equipped, with comfortable beds that were very welcoming after a long day in Cape Breton. We loved the many personal touches in the room that Earlene (the owner) had collected over her life, as it gave the room a very homely feel. Over the course of our stay we ate at the inn every morning and evening and we were extremely impressed with the quality and seasonality of the food on offer. We had some truly outstanding food cooked by both Earlene and Brian, and we really enjoyed the opportunity to taste some very local produce. The staff are all extremely friendly and attentive, and as the inn was fairly quiet when we visited at the beginning of May, we were able to share some interesting stories and learn a lot about the area, also they went out of their way to check whether local attractions were open and they even organised our Whale watching trip for us. Other than that the Inn is in a beautiful location with great views from the terrace and dining room, and it was extremely convenient being located on the Cabot Trail. We would highly recommend this Inn and if we ever revisit the region we will be sure to stay at the Chanterelle!
