When you are sad to leave a place, you know it was special. Nice spacious rooms and a super comfortable bed, only topped by the warm welcome and great hosts Lydia & Johannes who make their home yours as well. Located close to Port Hawkesbury and a good start point to explore the whole island. Cannot wait to visit them again 😊

Our Initial booking was for 4 nights. At the end we extended our stay to 12 nights.The reason: we met excellent hosts and guests. We had a wounderful room (downstream). Each morning (with very good breakfast) and many evenings we got many hints such as how to find a solicitor and how to open an account. At the end we bought a house and had a party together.

Lydia and Johannes, originally from Germany, came across several years ago and operate their beautiful house and lodge since then. Hundreds of guests worldwide are coming and stay here to get in touch with the Nova Scotian lifestyle of Canada. In the middle of the forest, directly next to a beautiful river, this place is definitely worth a visit for more than one day! For sure I will come again :-)

Stopped in for the night, was completely blown away by how amazing it was. Beautiful, clean, friendly hosts. Breakfast was delicious and made to order. We added our pin to the map of guests and wrote in the guest book. Must come back!
