We can't wait to get to this spot whenever we can. Not only is it located across from one of the most beautiful beaches in nova Scotia,its charm is about as much as its beautiful as it is about its staff. From the first call to book to the arrival and greeting we feel a deep sense of caring and...

This was to be a charming experience - not so! Pulled into the gravel parking lot on a hillside and had to drag luggage along and then up quite a few steps to the lobby - no help at all. Met the hostess and got checked in and was told my room was up another long steep narrow flight of...

This was supposed to be the high point of our trip. When we arrived, and I told the desk clerk what room we were in, he laughed, and said it wasn't a very good room. Then he tried to upsell us on another room. He also wanted us to pay more than our original deposit for the room we had...

He became unhappy with stated provincial law that consumption of alcohol is prohibited in public areas. He then became unhappy with a room he booked through a third-party booking engine, which...

We ordered the Seafood Linguine and the Salmon meal and both were very fresh and delicious. We shared a salad for an appetizer and it was a very generous portion and very...

Our GPS got us a bit turned around as we neared our destination at the Surfside Inn. It had been a long trip, and we were tired and hungry when we finally pulled in. Natalie, the proprietor, was so gracious and welcoming to us. She reopened the kitchen to serve us a lovely light dinner, so that we wouldn't need...

My husband and I stayed here for a short weekend getaway and loved it. It's right on the ocean for a beautiful day on the beach. The rooms are lovely, and full of charm, like the house, but the bathrooms have been updated and are very modern. No cable, but there's netflix! Staff was very kind and the food was...

Dear Laura, We were happy to see you back for your 2d year wedding anniversary! The Victorian room is a good choice for a romantic stay, as it features a gorgeous antique double bed-frame and offers a nice view of Queensland beach. However this room is designed for couples and the bedframe is not suitable to accomodate a child. Having...
