We booked three days before and we got a good deal compared to the fares we noticed on the website. Tho, we ended up in another house than the fancy one you see in the pictures.
Don't get me wrong, it was an ok cottage, but I doubt 500$ per night is the right price. There are a lot of beds and washrooms. While the beds in the kids room was pretty clean, in ours we had to remove everything and use ours. As well, the plates in the kitchen was dirty on the edge. Luckily we had ours. More than that, I found an intriguing odour of old. Overall, I give 7/10 for cleanliness.
A lot of room, maybe 15 people can sleep in a bed. There are several couches that can be used as beds, but I didn't found them to be comfortables.
The surrounding area is amazing. BUT the mosquitoes are a nasty plague. Man, hundreds of them attack you from any direction. We used Off! and it kind of worked out. My back received "massage" on every square millimetre. While doing BBQ, I killed dozens while drinking my beer. Those nasty creatures refused to stay outside. The killing show continued until at down. My wife can't stand the buzz of mosquitoes so I had to wake up and resume the massacre. The owner must do something about this. Afterwards, I will consider coming back.
We traveled out to Atlantic Canada this year, and were already away when my husband just happened to check our home-phone voice mails – and boy, did we have a surprise waiting for us! It was Friday night (Aug 17th) and we were already in St. Andrews, NB. We were going to be traveling to New Horton, NB the VERY next day (Saturday the 18th), and staying at the New Horton Lake Inn for 2 nights. We had booked about 3 months prior to arrival. When we picked up our voice messages, we had one from Clyde (at New Horton Lake Inn). My husband called Clyde right away and was told that there was a “situation”; that because of the music festival happening at the Fundy National Park, he could no longer honour our reservations – he’d given our room to someone else! He gave us the names of two other places we may be able to find rooms. We were fortunate and did find another place to stay, but couldn’t believe that a place would do that to us! What if we hadn't checked our messages?! We spent a very stressful Friday night on what was supposed to be our time for R&R. Be very careful about booking at this place! You may OR MAY NOT have a room when you arrive!!
We found the New Horton Lake Inn on the web while looking for a place to stay for a couple of nights while exploring the Bay of Fundy. After staying for 3 nights, and having a wonderful time, I must say that the web site for the Inn (http://www.newhortonlakeinn.com/) is accurate, if not a bit modest. The place is as beautiful and as clean as the pictures show. There was lots to do on the property, and so much to explore in the area (within 30 minutes drive). The kids have already asked about going back. Alma and Fundy National Park is 20 minutes to the west. Cape Enrage is 15 minutes away, and the Hopewell Rocks are 20 minutes to the east.
We had a spacious room, with 2 queen beds and room for a single roll-away bed, with our own full bathroom. Breakfast was served in the dining room at 8:30; starting with home-made yogurt and fruit preserves, followed by fresh pancakes or waffles, with sausage on the side. Delicious, and Clyde makes sure everyone has enough. As a B&B, you are on your own for lunch and dinner, but just ask Clyde for a recommendation. There are a number of nice restaurants in Alma and Riverside-Albert, and the restaurant at Cape Enrage is quite upscale.
I am glad we stayed at there, and I would recommend it to anyone.
