We just returned from a 10 day driving tour around the Lighthouse and Evangeline Routes. Our sixth and seventh nights (June 1,2) were spent at the Dockside Suites. I booked Suite D at $129 + 13%tax/ night ($10 AAA discount). this harborview suite has a kingsize bed with bathroom on the 2nd floor and the full kitchen and den with balcony located on the first. What a bargain! Every 12 hours the ebb and flow of the tides is amazing to watch. We watched the scallop boats rise and fall no less that 40 feet (that 4 stories!) Scallops are the local dish and are generally available (fried) at every restaurant in town. The Fundy Restaurant (downstairs) is nice and the food is very good. Digby is a neat town and you should stay at least two nights so that you fully appreciate the area. Don't miss the drive to Long and Brier Islands. Also, walk down to the Fisherman's Wharf and visit the Royal Fundy Market. There you can buy live lobster and freshly caught seafood to cook. OR, better yet, Joan O'Neil will cook what you pick out and you can eat it there. Lobster was #9.95 per pound. My wife was impressed with the seared scollops. We agreed that this was some of the best seafood we had on the trip.
We would definitely come back and stay here again.
