A group of us stayed here in the autumn of 2003. It was, without a doubt, one of the best evenings I have spent in Nova Scotia. The hospitality was exceptional, and the food was magnificent. Plus the owner seemed to organize one of the most stunning sunsets I've ever seen. We finished the evening around a roaring campfire.

I have been tempted to keep quiet about our wonderful evening as I fear it will soon be over-run with others wanting to stay there. We will definitely be back.

As the previous reviewer mentioned, the walk down is a bit difficult. It is worth the effort.

OH MY GOD, if you're traveling anywhere near the northern shores of NS, I would heartily recommend a night or two here. The lighthouse is perched on the tip of a Cape and has increible views in all directions. The rooms (in the old lighthouse keeper's home) are nice and the restaurant serves freshly cooked, home style meals. Darcy, the owner, is right there with you and will provide all sorts of hiking and activity suggestions - or just sit and relax with a good book and enjoy the great view! If you can time right, make sure to be there for the beginning or the end of the high tide coming in and you can watch the Dory Rip appear and disappear before your very eyes - very cool!

Three caveats: To get to the lighthouse you have to down a pretty long, kinda steep road, so pack a nightbag to take with you (instead of all your stuff). Also, when we were there they did not yet have a liquor license so bring your own bevs of choice. Lastly, it is a working lighthouse, so you may get the foghorn whilst there (but isn't that part of the experience??!!)

This was a great find that I would strongly recommend!
