We visited this area again, knowing it was a great home base for stopping in at Peggy's Cove, Chester, Lunenberg, Mahone Bay and just about every gallery and antique place along our path of exploration. We also visited several places along the Petite Rivière as it was an artisan weekend. Everything was great, we stayed in the waterfront cottage and... More

The power has just come back on when we checked in to our room and there were several dead flies throughout the room which turned me off. Room itself was okay. Nothing special but I would not choose to stay again. We were en route to Yarmouth and this was a convenient stop on our route. Not much to do... More

Can't say enough about the great service!! We stayed in the cottage- breath taking view - living room looks out over the water. Everything you needed in the kitchen. Beautifully decorated bedrooms and bathroom. Hope we can make it back sometime!!

Nice location, overlooking lake (not our room unfortunately). No air conditioning, just a stand alone fan so very restless night as room so warm. If we opened windows , flies came in attracted by nearby lake. Basic. Served its purpose of one night stopover between locations. Would not want to stay any longer than one night.

Overall, I was satisfied with our accommodations. However, the lack of air conditioning, coupled with 30+ C temperature made for a miserable sleep. There is a lovely place out back to sit by the river. And it is pet friendly.

We had the room by the water and it was wonderful, clean and relaxing. This was a last minute booking and we were pleasantly surprised. This is the perfect place to relaxe and only 20 minutes from Lunnenberg. Would go back anytime.

This motel is super clean and has a beautiful view! We rented the Queen Water view with kitchenette room. It was like a cottage except just a room which was perfect for us since we were out around Bridgewater, Lunenburg and Mahone Bay. The owner is super friendly and you can tell he took great care of the grounds!

We stayed at the Riverbank Cottage for two nights in late June. We cannot say enough about our accommodations. The cottage was beautiful. There was a large main room with fantastic views only feet from the rivers edge. There is a kitchen where you can prepare a meal and two bedrooms (perfect if traveling with the kids). But the best...
