Great motel in a beautiful location. It was very quiet and clean, timely room cleaning service. The ground are well groomed. A great place to spend a restful evening. It is close to all restaurants. We enjoyed the whale watching trip.

The couple who run the place make every effort to ensure your stay is pleasant. We had a good night's sleep between nice clean sheets. They will also help you figure out things like beaches or where to eat.

Wonderful location with great views and just close enough to everything. Owners were extremely helpful and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived - it was like visiting old friends! They helped us discover activities in the area, recommended local restaurants that were less touristic for a more local feel and even help us start a fire to... More

I just read the recent reviews and I can only second the positive comments they have made. We stayed there in mid-June on the first warm day of the year. The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable. The motel is not fancy, but is in great shape and comfortable. Everything we hoped for. If we ever get the opportunity to... More

We booked this motel based on the great ratings and boy were we glad we did. I should mention that we are finicky travelors who have at times stayed at top-notch hotels. We were very pleased with our stay there and would highly recommend it to others looking for options near Cheticamp. The backstory of the place is that a... More

Nice motel. Quiet and convenient location right at the entrance to the park. You need to drive about 10 minutes to find food. The room itself is very basic and bit dated. Seems to be in the process of being upgraded. The beds were comfy. Could have used 4 pillows on each bed instead of two. The river view was... More

The motel is perfectly located at the entrance to the park: the area is stunningly beautiful, the famous Skyline trail is a 20 min drive away. The room was very clean and comfortable, it had everything we needed for the stay. The hosts are nice.

I was traveling with a group of students and the Cornerstone provided super-clean and budget-friendly rooms set in a paradise...can't ask for better. The restaurant will open next season, making the coffee run unnecessary, but other than that, A+. Super-friendly management as well.
