Getting to this hotel is half of the fun! Form Digby you drive to the first ferry stop to Long Island. Take the ferry to Long Island and continue driving to the second ferry stop for Brier Island. Take the ferry to Brier Island. Fun!
We stayed in a second floor room for a better view of the water. The room was very basic - bed, a few chairs, table, desk and a TV. Indoor/outdoor carpet. Everything was very clean, just not much style. The window opened so we could hear the birds and the water. Nice!
Hotel has a restaurant, but we did not try it. Instead, take the ferry back across to Long Island. When you get off the ferry, go to Lavena's. Fabulous home cooking! Make sure to have the peanut butter pie!
Tip: While on Brier Island, drive to the ferry and park your car. If you travel on the ferry as a walk on passenger it is free. Since Lavena's is right at the ferry stop on Long Island you won't need a car.
