It always fascinates me that we spend so much time traveling the world when we have all these great treasures so close to us. The resort is a little remote but really not that far off the main highway. Beautiful old log Lodge and Cabins as well There is also completely modern cabins . However the highlight is the dining room in the main lodge. the staff are so friendly and the food is of such high-quality that you cannot but help to be pleased. Great value for your money.
There is also several other sizes of accommodations to suit size of group and budgets. The town has some interesting tourist attractions and is close to beaches and the ferry to PEI.
Unfortunately it is closed for the season but it is well worth putting this on your agenda for next summer you will not be disappointed
We chose this place because of it's proximity to the PEI ferry (5 mins) but it offers so much more. I booked a simple motel style room which was clean and fit our needs. We chose to have dinner in the main lodge and the big room/pub was empty except for us, the dining room was very busy. The staff were great, the food was lovely and the location cannot be beat. Make this a must do if you are in the area.
