  • convenient to all areas
    The owners were very friendly and helpful. Knowledge of the area. Clean. Good value.

We reserved through the Nova Scotia Information Service and were welcomed by Lisa. The rate was quite reasonable for the area. We got a spacious room, clean, with Wi-fi, and we parked right at the door.
With Lisa’s help we were directed to and able to watch the Tidal Bore from a vantage point about 1.5km from the motel. The office has a tide table and will direct you. Lots of places to eat right up the road.
