Althought I didn't stay at the Blazing Horizon Cottages, we most certainly frequented the restaurant most every night for dinner. One of the waitresses, Una, did a wonderful job of teaching us about the local culture; Barb the owner showed my 14 yr old teen the craft of folding paper napkins (staff fold 30,000 yearly!) and all of the staff were very gracious when I thought Shag Rock (as viewed directly from the restaurant window) was a black iceberg!
I've never seen such a colourful shrimp cocktail, the seafood dinner was superb and each time we went, my teen ate the seafood chowder and fried chocolate brownie or the apple caramel dessert.
Their little gift shop offered some really nice local crafts, too, which I found waned on the rest of the peninsula.
