This hotel is an absolute gem. We stayed in Holly Suite 1 which had a beautiful pane window with view of the ocean. My wife loved to walk down right to the water's edge where there were some chairs to relax and enjoy the view/sounds.

Room was large and clean. TV was tiny but lots of channels. Many small extras with the room.

Nice spread for breakfast.

Located very close to Peggy's Cove. Also served as a good base to take a day trip to Lunenberg which I highly recommend.

Get a good map and don't arrive after dark!! This place is a delight but obvious it ain't. It's actually a bit before Peggy's Cove and is mighty easy to drive right by...we did. Mostly cabins with some nautical/country charm rooms. The rooms were small but beautifully kept and the staff extremely obliging (seems everywhere in the Maritimes you meet truly nice folks who make you welcome). Because it is mostly self-catering cabins there is no breakfast offered. But dinner at the associated Rhubarb restaurant was a knock-out. I mean, where else can you get haute cuisine musk ox as an entree?? Great food and a sunny early morning saw great views out across the water. Parking is some distance away on a dark dirt road and those with mobility challenges might have problems. Breakfast meant a drive down to Peggy's Cove itself. 'ware tourist buses, even out of season we barely beat the morning rush of 3 tour buses!! But a lovely relaxed place to stay and dine well. Do NOT make Rhubarb jokes. The musk ox came with a merlot and rhubarb glaze!

We could not have asked for a better introduction to Nova Scotia than our stay at the Oceanstone Inn & Cottages. Our stay began on a high note when the owners made special accommodations for our very late arrival. The inn is located in Indian Cove along the scenic Lighthouse Route. Waking up to the sound of the surf and looking out at the ocean was quite a special introduction to this provence. The highlight of our stay was our dinner in the inn's restaurant. An outstanding culinary experience! I highly recommend the inn to anyone visiting the greater Halifax region.
