We stayed for a week at the Clairestone Inn in beautiful Arichat on Isle Madame. Everything was perfect, from the picturesque view of the water from our room, through the comfort and cleanliness of the entire hotel, and above all the friendliness of the owner, Shauna. She made us feel like we were at home right from the first day. Breakfast was good and the bar was open several evenings for drinks and some pub food. All excellent! Thanks for your hospitality! We look forward to staying here again!

We stayed in an Ocean View room. The room was spacious, clean,cozy and decorated nicely Shauna (owner) is a wonderful person, warm and friendly , can say the same for her staff member Donna. Breakfast was enjoyable and had Shauna's amazing homemade banana bread and cinnamon rolls! Cant wait to go back for a longer stay

We stayed in a 2nd floor room, overlooking the ocean. The room was quiet spacious and spotlessly clean. The staff are wonderful. All are personable; helpful and friendly. There is a pub on site which has a nice variety of pub fare.

The staff at this hotel is what makes it a 5 star. It a very good sized room and the room is clean. My room overlooked the water. The bed is comfortable and clean. I did not stay for breakfast. If going to Isle Madame and wanting to immerse yourself with the island, I certainly highly recommend this inn. Shauna meets her guests and is compassionate to another’s needs. I cannot give this woman and her inn enough praise. Thank you.

Recently enjoyed a 1 night stay here on a journey to find where my great grandmother was born. The 2nd floor room was spacious and clean and comfortable and quiet. The owner, Shauna, went out of her way to help us find things to do with our small kids on Isle Madame. We also enjoyed a night at the bar chatting with Shauna and her family until well past closing time. Enjoyed a change of pace from our life in Boston to enjoy this lovely little village and had a great time in this inn!
