It was just serendipitous that we found this place and decided that it looked almost unreal in its semi-remoteness on a hillside right on the water with very little else around. It was shrouded in deep fog when we arrived and seemed almost dreamy. It has charm and a friendly, family vibe with the relaxed owners and even one guest... More

Great atmosphere here. Lovely couple and great to chat with other visitors over breakfast. The beach is literally right next door too! A quiet community so typical to have a massive stunning beach to yourself. And great stars too!

I live away but am originally from the area. I visit often and always book a room for a night or 2 while I am home. I had been staying in a local place but decided to try this hotel for a change since I loved this beach when I was a kid. It was a horrible experience and will... More

In the past eight years we have owned this property we have come to realize there are two types of smokers. There are the respectful ones that are considerate of the other 14 patrons of the motel & cottages, and there are the ones that seem to have no consideration for others. We have a large {almost a half acre}... More

We read reviews and decided on this spot for our first night after getting off the CAT. It was around 1/2 hour drive from the pier. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but as others have said, it's clean and safe and a stone's throw to a beautiful beach. I'm an early riser so was up with the sun... More

Another fabulou Nova Scotia view. However: as soon as we started to register, owner was sarcastic to the point that aggravated us both. We are a couple, both in our sixties, knowing ahead of time that the place would be wanting of quiet, serene times. Luckily, the one restaurant in the area that was across the street had fabulous haddock.... More

So sorry you feel this way! Since you can see the lighthouse from the motel, we do not always see the need to tell people this information. Sometimes we suggest if we sense people are open to it. Some people have their own agenda. We are definitely not perfect though, so we do apologize. Thank you for the muffin comment!! More

We stayed in Cabin 4 and previously in Cabin 5 which are identical. There are 2 bedrooms with very comfortable beds, one with a queen and the other with 2 singles. The cottage also has a bathroom, kitchen and living room, deck and clothesline ! There is everything you can possibly need in the cottage. There is also a fire... More

This place is all about the beach and the view. Soft sandy beach is close. The rooms are nice enough and clean. The owners like the place to be quiet, so not a place to go party. Best for families and couples looking for a romantic getaway. Not very close to a town or amenities aside from a local restaurant... More

Came here to spend a few days in the area with some friends. I had a good experience here. The rooms were tidy and well looked after. The owner was friendly and polite. We even got newspapers delivered there. all in all I enjoyed my time there.

We arrived in a thick of fog to a peaceful sanctuary. Russ and his wife were wonderful hosts with even a continental breakfast. Mavillette Beach was a wonderful place to go and lose yourself to the sounds of the waves or watch the sandpipers dance along the soft sand chasing in and out of the approaching waves.

Fantastic cabins! Very clean, updated, and spacious. The owners are so gracious, kind, and engaged with all their guests and we were thrilled to be a part of their wonderful beach area. Restaurant across the road is handy with friendly staff and yummy eats! We'll be back in the Fall. Dan. Manchester NH
