The Cove Motel is much more than you see in the photos on their website. From the second you turn onto the tree-lined drive you start to anticipate what may lie ahead.
The hotel is an incredible peninsula right on the Causeway.
The room is basic, but very clean. The bed was comfortable. Our room faced the causeway so we could see the bridge to Cape Breton and it was nice to walk right outside and be on the water. My husband and I took a morning walk along the rocks on the peninsula and then back up the tree-lined drive.
We heard that the restaurant was excellent and we were not disappointed. A must have: the Smoked Mussel chowder. The menu says its incredible and it is.
The gift shop was the best surprise of all. This was really a GIFT shop - not just tourist trap items. I bought many holiday gifts when I was there and since we were on a motorcycle, they offered to take them to the post office and have them shipped back to the US for us. I regret not buying a handpainted jacket when I was there! If I lived in Nova Scotia, I would do my gift-buying at the Cove Motel's gift shop.
