My family has been visiting Brier Island Lodge a couple times a year for about 3 years now - we love the trip down because you get to see farms and trees and windmills and the ocean (Bay of Fundy) The relaxed pace of everything is very welcoming after a busy week too.
The rooms are always clean and tidy - the matrasses are firm and comfortable and the beds don't roll and squeak like in some places I've stayed. The hot coffee and tea in the lounge all day is appreciated and there is plenty to do even if you decide not to go whale watching. There are trails to walk - we like to visit Northern and Western light's (lighthouses) and walk around and take pictures and see what has washed up in the little tide pools. Our son likes to bring home interesting rocks he has found.
We always go out on the Whale Watch boat and have been lucky enough to get right along side of some breathtaking whales - we've also had some lovely 2 hour cruises just watching the waves and birds and the coastline go by when the whales have been hiding. These cruises are just as nice I think.
Dinner in the dining-room is always a treat after a day of seeing the sights. For such a tiny kitchen, they really do put out a fantastic assortment of great maritime favourites - and the desserts - don't get me started about the brownies and ice cream..... YUM!
