Reviewed 18 July 2006

We stayed in a good sized , meticulously cared for cottage on the shore of a peaceful river. The cottage had a living room/dining room with a kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom, plus a deck with a screened in area with chairs and small table. The owners were very nice and knowledgeable about the area. She is an Osteopathic doctor and this site has been used for healing retreats. It's a beautiful eco-friendly compound with cottages and 3 tipi's for camping. It's right on the river, but with no direct access for guests. The owners had a very friendly golden retriver that my daughter fell in love with. The cottage is really nice, near to a lovely beach (Waterside Provincial Park) and a secluded lighthouse (Caribou Island). We saw a great sunset, and were only 5-10 minutes from downtown Pictou. They let us use their hot tub. There is a neglected playground. There is a rec room with books, movies and a ping pong table. My only surprise was being told that the cottage I thought I reserved was actually not. We were offered a $10/night "upgrade" upon check in to a bigger, nicer cottage-what I thought I had reserved in the first place. I would, without hesitation, recommend this place, but I would advise anyone to take a look-see before choosing to upgrade. There are a number of restaurants in Pictou, all within walking distance of each other. We ate at Fougieres- good food, harbor view, very expensive and the Stone House Pizzeria- good food, reasonable prices, cool menu. There is a gift shop in Pictou, Casper's- an extremely nice owner with interesting wares. There is a grocery store at the Rotary, 5 minutes away.
