We spent 2 nights at this inn and will definitely return the next time we are on the north shore of Nova Scotia. The room was spacious and the bed very comfortable. The hosts were friendly and helpful and the meals were excellent. Wonderful breakfasts and a delicious dinner. This was a bonus because there are really no restaurants in... More

The grounds were really nice and the ambience was lovely but the bed in our room was really lacking, it was saggy and lumpy and made for a very uncomfortable night sleep, the hostess was very friendly and I wish when we checked in that I had taken her up on the upgrade that was offered, I had felt we...

The Amherst Country Shore Inn is a perfect example of Maritime Hospitality and service. The hosts couldn't have been more gracious, and the meals were excellent! We stayed in a cabin, and the amenities were perfect for a couple that just needed to rest and unwind. Private deck, fireplace, whirlpool tub in the room, separate living-room space, and a view...

Wife and I were looking for a 3 night getaway, someplace different. We are in MA, and wanted to do a road trip. We decided Nova Scotia, and PEI, was a good destination after seeing peak foliage through coastal Maine. We picked the Amherst Shore Country Inn, based on Tripadvisor reviews, and pictures. The "Inn" was just what as it... More

This place is amazing! The food is freshly made right out of the garden and the accommodations are fantastic! I will definitely be coming back if I am ever in NS. 😊 We stayed in a chalet and I would highly recommend them. Very spacious with a fireplace and jacuzzi tub!

Our chateau at the Amherst Shore Country Inn was a wonderful place to stay. I could walk down to the shore or thought their gardens. Roomy, quiet, lovely. A great place to stay. The dinner and breakfast were even better. The dinner was one of the top two of our entire trip to Canada. The breakfast was the best.

The property is great and the food was out of this world. The owners pick the herbs and produce fresh from their extensive gardens. Unfortunately, we were only there for one night, but we plan to return and spend a week next time. Highly recommended.

We stayed in a chalet a minute's walk from the main lodge. There was ample sitting room, a comfortable bed, and a slightly cramped bathroom. There was a jacuzzi tub next to the bed, which worked fine but took up a lot of room. We were able to park our car right beside the chalet, which was helpful. Dinner the... More

My husband and I have stayed and dined here twice and we will go back again and again! The cottages are so cute and cozy with a jacuzzi tub and large living space. The food at the inn is exquisite, like nothing I've ever tasted before. The property is very well kept and maintained. A romantic and enjoyable experience every... More
