We loved this inn. Brenda was warm and inviting. We had hot coffee and a selection of breads, croissants and out of the oven scones or muffins, fresh fruit, yoghurt cereals etc. There are 6 rooms with several bathrooms. Our Room was very comfortable and so quiet. There is great whale watching from one of the wharfs which was a stones throw away at seals watch yours. Lots of whale sightings. They guarantee it or you don't pay. You are on the water for 4 hours so dress for warm and very cold in the same trip! Bring a blanket! We ordered take out cooked lobsters from Fundy House (glad we didn't eat there!) which were picked from their tanks at $10/pound and super delicious! We had a chilled bottle of wine and dined on the deck of the inn with a gorgeous sunset. The beach is less than a 5 minute walk so we finished off with a walk along the floor of the ocean with the tide out and watched the fog roll in with darkness. What a great experience. We also did a sunset take out dinner at Whistle point and woke up at 530 am to do the sunrise at southwest head (7 min drive from the inn). If I did it again I would do sunrise at whistle road in the north head and sunset at south head. We also took in the Castalia marsh for a collection of scallop shells. The farmers market was fun and I bought a beautiful maple cutting board and some nice pottery pieces. The people of grand manan are really friendly and helpful. A great couple of days. Thanks Brenda for your wonderful hospitality. I would recommend the inn to others. Note there is no restaurant or convenience store in the inn. I added some pics too.

This is no longer a restaurant, although it has a superb deck overlooking the harbour. All you can get there is soft drinks, not even alcohol...It's a real pity as it would be a superb location for a great restaurant!

The staff was very small, wait times were long but the food was really good. We at least had a great view of the beach while we waited. They could use better management of the outdoor patio and more umbrellas

We stayed in this B&B in Sept. after it had closed its restaurant to the public, so they served breakfast only to their overnight guests. Brenda greeted us warmly to show us to our comfortable room upstairs and again in the morning to cook to order our eggs with full breakfast, muffins, etc. Our room had windows overlooking Seal Cove, a refrigerator, comfortable beds and chairs, share bath, common room down the hall with TV, refrigerator, microwave, etc. Rooms, baths, all were clean, modern and in excellent repair. There was a deck with relaxing Adirondack chairs with cushions, views of the tidal waters, and historic buildings left from the smoked herring industry. It was an easy stroll to the beach and the village of Seal Cove was all around us. We felt wonderfully mothered here by our hostesses. Relaxing island stay.
