I've read the mixed reviews, and my experience was 100% positive and wonderful. I chose to stay at the Cape View because it was within striking distance of the early Yarmouth ferry to Maine, but it would also give me one last beautiful night on...More

About
Description
Cape View Motel and Cottages, Mavillette, Digby County, Nova Scotia, Canada is far enough away to be enjoyable, and yet close enough to have all the amenities of two Nova Scotia towns. Yarmouth is only More 20 mile drive with Digby a mere 40 miles. Enjoy a comforting stay while exploring a picture postcard view of Mavillette Beach, Cape St., Mary's fishing village, lighthouse, Saint Mary's Bay and the Bay of Fundy! Less

No, there are no A/C in our units. There is seldom any need as the ocean breeze is almost constant!!
