The dining experience is fantastic. In season all vegetables and herbs are grown on site. It's truly amazing to watch a chef pick these items in the afternoon and enjoy the freshest salads, soups etc that evening. There is only one sitting in the evening-enabling a leisurely evening of multi course dining. Freshly baked bread: two appetizers; entrée and desert...

We dined here with friends. The dining room probably sits less than 25 people, and as a result you pre-order your meal, choosing from two selections. The dining room is charming and enjoys an ocean view. Pre-dinner drinks are available in the living room. The table settings were lovely. Service was attentive, and the food was excellent. Expect vegetables fresh...

We came fromManitoba for a family wedding, booking the Inn well in advance. The Inn has a variety of acommodation including suites and rooms in the main building and detached chalets nearby. There is a vast area of manicured lawn and garden between the Inn and the ocean, about 150 meters away, which makes being outdoors a real pleasure. We...

We stayed in many B&Bs on our two week vacation spanning 2,600 miles. This was undoubtedly the most serene and beautiful of them all. Add delicious breakfast and a gastronomic delight for dinner. Unbeatable.

We stayed here for one night in Aug 2014. Our cabin had a queen-sized bed and a sleeper sofa, which accommodated our group of 3. There was a comfortable sitting area, which was much appreciated after a long day of biking. However, we found the service a bit off-putting. You are required to order your meals 24 hours in advance....

We are from New Hampshire and had never been to Nova Scotia. We enjoyed our experience so much at the Inn! The grounds were beautiful, the food was the Best and the Owners were so nice. We would recommend this as a great place to stay and would love to come back soon!

We were assigned a chalet cabin which was nicely laid out and with a propane fireplace to keep us warm. The furniture was just plain "Old" and it totally lacked any charm. We chose to try it here as we often stay at their sister property The Blomidon Inn in Wolfville NS which is wonderful and always fun. It was...

This was our last stop in Nova Scotia and what's very, very special place. We stayed in the inn cottage, as it had a washer and dryer in the bathroom and after six weeks of car travel we needed them. We were right on the water and could enjoy watching the tides come and go plus look across the water...

Our room was in the basement and had zero charm, and our host was nearly incommunicative. But the dinner made up for it all - probably the best meal, with home-grown fruits and vegetables, that we'd had on our whole trip. With seating for only 16 at dinner, you're guaranteed excellent service and attention. Breakfast was quite good, too. There's...

Our accommodations in the chalets were very comfortable, our group of four couples enjoyed having these cottages for our holiday. The propane fireplace helped to take the chill off from a rainy day on the golf course. The golf package with two spectacular dinners and full breakfasts was the perfect fit for our group. Mary was a very welcoming host...
