We called one morning in August to get a room for that night. Luckily we got the last room. As soon as the owner picked up the phone, I knew we had made the right decision. Her warm and friendly voice is exactly the tone of the establishment. She asked us what time we would arrive and our CC info. The room had a wonderful deck where we got up early, drank coffee and watched the beach. Sublime. The room itself had 2 rooms, suitable for a family with 2 TVs. There was a jacuzzi but we didn't use it. The continental breakfast was nice-I had bagels and the owner(husband) kept us filled with lots of hot coffee.
The inn is directly across from Queensland Beach. Lots of nostalgia for this 50 year-old Nova Scotian. It is as beautiful as ever!!! I do miss the canteen though. A bit sanitized for my liking now.
The innkeeper suggested we try the Trellis Cafe for dinner but we foolishly planned to go to the much touted Dauphinee Inn (see my review). In the end he was exactly right and we had dinner there and went back the next morning to hang out a bit more. Wonderful place and AMAZING staff. If you go for breakfast, they have a lobster omlette!! Back to the inn there is nothing negative about the Surfside. But we arrived much later than we had said and we couldn't get intoour room as the owners were running errands. It is a B&B soyou need to keep this in mind. But no problem, we popped across to the beach for a couple of hours. Don't miss thisplace!!!
