We booked Harmony Cottage for a last minute trip after Christmas. Michael, the owner was very responsive and accommodating with our booking enquiry and provided plenty of information before our arrival . The cottage well exceeded our expectations, it was cosy and welcoming and had everything we needed for our 5 night stay (even some beers in the fridge to welcome us !). It was immaculately clean, well quipped and of course the bonus was a delightful log burning fire (logs provided) . Our dogs loved the fenced yard and we all enjoyed the many lovely walking trails close by. Breakfast is available in the main house and it was very pleasant to wander across between 8 and 10 for fresh coffee, bagels etc with the offer of cooked eggs always there . Michael is the perfect host - on hand to help out and answer questions but in no way intrusive. We can’t praise this place highly enough and hope to return soon.…
DOMINION HILL COUNTRY INN – INTERESTING SPOT/GREAT OWNER We spent a night in early December in a small cabin at the Dominion Hill Country Inn between St. Stephen and St. George, N.B. Our grandson had a 2 day hockey tournament and we decided to stay in the area. Our stay was in December (dark early) in a very quiet, scenic area and we were gone after breakfast so our exploration was limited BUT we would have no reason not to go back. Be sure to check out their website to learn more about nearby attractions, trails, the very close waterfall and tidal area. The main building is a century old with a rich history and fine decor. There are a number of options for accommodation ranging from the old Manor house to glamping. We stayed in one of the smaller cottages (there are larger cottages as well) and it was fine for our short stay (a couple). The owner/innkeeper (Michael) was wonderful, full of history and put out a very nice breakfast. It's minutes from the highway, away from city lights and relatively peaceful (of course, our stay was early December). Check out the options that best suit your needs. We were more than satisfied and hope to stay there again. THANK YOU MICHAEL!!! …
We stayed one night on the 2nd floor in the main building. The room was lovely and quiet, the bed was okay, the place has been redone and while not perfect, it is very charming. I explored the trails on the property. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was yummy and plentiful. A real find off the beaten path.
Overall, this property is more run down than led to believe by the website. Our accommodation, the Lupine Cottage was not clean. Walking on the floor with bare feet resulted in dirt and crumbs sticking to your feet. A black hair in the shower and worst of all, we spilled a bit of bottled water on the bed when unpacking and therefore pulled back the sheets to air dry and discovered a large yellow stain on the mattress. The main living area had a sour smell. The breakfast casserole was overdone and no fresh fruit other than bananas. The most disappointing aspect of the visit was the attitude of the staff. We arrived early and asked if checking in early was possible. We understand fully if this is not possible as the stated checkin time is 3 p.m. however, the responses from two different staffers was to look at their watch and ask Incredulously "wow, what time is it" (it was after noon). When pressed if they could check to see if someone was in the room the night before we were quoted the check in policy of 3 p.m. We were told to come back then. No offer of using a sitting area, getting a drink of water or storing luggage. Basically, no warmth or hospitality whatsoever. This is not fine dining nor an upscale country inn but more like a camp. Nothing wrong with a camping, camp type of experience as we love to camp, just did not live up to its marketing. Upon checkout but were not asked "how was your stay" or anything to the sort, just leave the key.…
We were looking forward to our first glamping trip in the woods where we presumed it would be quiet and peaceful. We did not read any reviews that said that this property is located next to a major highway. If you don't care about road noise, then Dominion Hill is a nice choice. But we found it very difficult to relax and enjoy Nature while feeling like you are sleeping next to a road. The management is very nice and the accommodations are fine. There are rooms inside the Inn, which I'm sure are quieter, but if you choose glamping, beware the highway.
This campus is a historic estate consisting of a main building (inn), several cottages/cabins, and glamping tents, nestled in the woods just off and above the trans-Canada. The Lupine cabin has a kind size bed (actually two singles pushed together!) and a spacious sitting room. It was nice to open the windows and smell the fresh air. Breakfast is made fresh daily, first come first served. We loved the ambiance of the property..
My family stayed here for our first time, it was an unforgettable experience. We are impressed by such a beautiful and unique scenery. Michael and his staff were extremely professional and helpful! I would stay there again next time.
I stayed here and tried Glamping for my first time. My biggest thing is that I have mobility issues due to a fall at work a couple of years ago, so if you have any type of mobility issues as I do, discuss with the inn keeper before booking. I was able to get around and I had help, which was a blessing, otherwise a great stay. the place is well maintained and clean
I have stayed in the glamping tents and in the main house-loved both experiences. This time we made use of the firepit while we enjoyed a New Year's toast to 2022. The breakfast is gorgeous and the quiche one the best I have ever had. The hiking trails and picnic areas are right on the property. Owner, Michael, wants his guests to have a good visit and will go out of his way for you. Highly recommend.
Lovely charming 150 year old property. We so enjoyed our stay. Our rooms were in the Manor House. Breakfast was so very good. The coffee was excellent and they served REAL cream. We wished we had more time to explore the area. This property is not too far from the USA Canadian border.
