I stayed here with my partner for three nights and it was the perfect place to escape from the hustle bustle of everyday life. There is no better place to sit with a cold beer or glass of chilled wine and watch the sunset, than the decking of this Lodge. It overlooks the shore of Lobster Bay and it is hard to think how anyone could tire of such a view. We saw three fabulous sunsets while we were there. It's not hard to see why people choose to hold their weddings at the Argyler with such a wonderful backdrop. It was just as dramatic and spectacular to watch the mist roll inshore and out again in the morning. Set off the main road down a dirt track the Lodge is surrounded by garden on three sides and the shore on the other and it feels a world away from daily life. It is a place to truly relax and unwind. Alana and Jon, the owners, make all their guests feel very welcome in a casual and unobtrusive way and the food Jon cooks is plentiful and hearty! I especially enjoyed the swordfish steak he cooked for me on our first night there and his lovely orchard salad was full of fresh ingredients. His breakfasts - my personal favourite was his French Toast - are amazing and certainly set us up for the day. The couple make it a really personal experience - we felt right at home there. Our room, the Leeward cabin on the Lodge website, was lovely. A really comfortable bed and a welcoming sea breeze from the ocean-facing window made sure we got a great night's sleep. Everything was spotlessly clean and the lovely soft bath towels were most welcome indeed. Jon's parents help out at the Lodge and were on hand to offer advice on places to visit. In fact the Lodge proved an excellent base for exploring the area. It was our first time in this part of Nova Scotia and we will be back! Our only criticism was that it was a pity there was no lounge area as well as the restaurant as once the sun went down it got quite cool on the deck. It would have been nice to be able to sit inside in some comfy chairs or a sofa enjoying a drink or two before retiring to bed. That's a minor issue and would not stop us going back again (and again) to this lovely place.
