Pretty views and quiet location. Rooms were clean and pleasant. Having explored the rest of the Cabot Trail, we would have been better to stay further north up near the national park. Our biggest disappointment was the food. Their chef who had been highly rated was not there as far as we could tell and most of us found the food to be very average to poor. The breakfasts were also mediocre. We had quiches one morning...a nice idea but all of them were way over-salted. One of the propreirers, Keith was pleasnt one minute and officious the next. He didn't make us feel comfortable. Overall we enjoyed ourselves because we were holidaying with a large group but wouldn't stay there again. We also agree with another visitor about the "sampler package"... better to decide what you want once you a drive as it's a lot of driving if you have limited time.
