The chalet was incredible and the food was great. A LOAF of homemade bread was served at first. I have never seen that in a restaurant before and they even asked us if we wanted to take the rest of the loaf home, which of course we did. lol The vegetables (3 different ones each night) were from their giant...

Really special place in every way. Our room had every possible amenity, our dinner and breakfast were exceptional. The grounds surrounding the inn are lovely. Very professionally run with many special touches.

Outstanding in every way! Gorgeous property, lovely comfortable room,great food and friendly hosts! Know that if you want dinner (and you will!) they require advance reservations. We just sat Oceanside for three hours soaking in the beauty and the tranquil setting. Their vegetable gardens are awesome. We love this place.

The Amherst Shore Country Inn is a good reason to avoid the Digby Ferry and continue to the crossing to Amherst. The overnight gourmet package includes one night's stay with dinner for 2 and breakfast for 2. At a total of $263.35 Canadian, it was an incredible dining and breakfast experience. The view from our room and dining room was...

The only problem with this place is that the food is so good that we ate too much! The inn beats much larger hotels in both service and the quality of food. Accommodations in the chalets are fine. The bathrooms are very small, but how much time do you really want to stay in a bathroom?

We have visited to celebrate our anniversary for the past few years. It is a lovely venue overlooking a beautiful vista. Multiple stemware for each course, and crystal stemware for drinks, and fancy China for tea and coffee afterward. If you book early enough in advance, you can choose the menu. If you call a day or two before, you...

We spent 2 nights at this inn and will definitely return the next time we are on the north shore of Nova Scotia. The room was spacious and the bed very comfortable. The hosts were friendly and helpful and the meals were excellent. Wonderful breakfasts and a delicious dinner. This was a bonus because there are really no restaurants in...

The grounds were really nice and the ambience was lovely but the bed in our room was really lacking, it was saggy and lumpy and made for a very uncomfortable night sleep, the hostess was very friendly and I wish when we checked in that I had taken her up on the upgrade that was offered, I had felt we...

The Amherst Country Shore Inn is a perfect example of Maritime Hospitality and service. The hosts couldn't have been more gracious, and the meals were excellent! We stayed in a cabin, and the amenities were perfect for a couple that just needed to rest and unwind. Private deck, fireplace, whirlpool tub in the room, separate living-room space, and a view...

Wife and I were looking for a 3 night getaway, someplace different. We are in MA, and wanted to do a road trip. We decided Nova Scotia, and PEI, was a good destination after seeing peak foliage through coastal Maine. We picked the Amherst Shore Country Inn, based on Tripadvisor reviews, and pictures. The "Inn" was just what as it...
