"Quaint, Rustic, Beautiful Views of Ocean"

We stayed in the red roof chalet for a week and loved it. Food excellent, lobby a fun place to hang out, read, listen to music, etc. Highly recommended.

~ Kate, Ottawa

"Paradise Out Our Door!"

We awoke to clear skies and an unbelievable paradise out our door! The morning sunrise on the pond , with the ocean and cliffs in the view beyond, was stunning. Water fowl abound and bald eagles were regular traffic in the skies.

~ Marla, New York

"Perfect Location"

The resort is in a perfect location. Close enough to get into nearby towns for food/drink, on the Cabot Trail and still far enough that you truly feel like you are in the wilderness. I would return here and recommend it!

~ JD, Toronto

"A Wonderful Getaway"

Being new parent this was our first escape on our own and we could not have found a more wonderful place to do this. Quiet, peaceful – great food and all topped off by the amazing hospitality of Paul and Barbara.
