We have never stayed quite so close to the water before with a wide and unobstructed view of the bay. Our waterfront cottage was ideally located to enjoy the changing light and feel g banks too. The deck was set with comfy wicker furniture and gorgeous pink hydrangeas. The beds were comfortable, everything was spotless and in the kitchenette there was even a hand crocheted dishrag? Jesse and the other woman were kind and helpful, clearly interested that you enjoy the place they take such good care of.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable 2 night's stay in a cottage. It was the main cottage (?) the one that sits by itself on the little hill. Spectacular views of the bay. The lady at check-in was just as sweet as could be. (We did however ask her to change payment from one card to another, and it was no problem. Only to discover on check out that the payment was put through on the card we didn't want it on.) The bathroom needs blinds on the window in the shower. I know the window is glazed, but still, it is uncomfortable. Also, the shower needs a grab bar. It's just silly not to have one installed. And while the kitchen is well stocked with plenty of pots and pans, you need more plates, cups, glasses, bowls, and utensils. Simply not near enough of those items. The washer and dryer (free to use!!) were an absolute godsend. A wonderful place to stay and relax.

We enjoyed our stay at the Cottage on the Hill- we would've like to know that the cottage in on the side of the street. Also, the charge on my credit card wasn't the same as the one that I had through my reservation with booking.com- it was 50$ higher. They told me what was on my receipt wasn't what would be charged on my visa but it was. Just be certain to check what you pay for before you accept the charges.

This was a great spot on our tour of the Fundy islands - the room's are very nicely updated/renovated, very clean, and the staff were very friendly. We stayed in two of the hotel rooms. A nice touch is the fridge and microwave - I'd say the only thing missing was a kettle. The beach across the street is an excellent place to watch the sunset. My only complaint is that the walls between the rooms are paper thin - I could literally hear everything my neighbours were saying. Other than that I would definitely recommend this place.

We stayed in Waterside Room B. The view from the waterside rooms is nothing short of wonderful; you are basically right on the water. Ideally, two of the same families/friends should book both the A and B rooms. Soundproofing between these two rooms is not great (we heard our neighbors with a small child pretty well, and I'm sure they heard us), and the awesome waterfront deck is shared, as in it being the exact same deck with no separation between rooms. However, if the owner's cottage next to the B room is not occupied, the B room occupants can use their deck (it wasn't occupied when we were there, so we had our own deck anyway). Other than that, this is a great place to stay. The kind staff was very helpful when I called a few times to change my dates. Decor in the room is very attractive and stylish, along with a nice bathroom with a roomy stand up shower (but please, upgrade the towels and throw away the paper thin ones you have now). They also, I think, recently added a great A/C system.

Amazing staff. Cozy room. Loved having access to the bbq to cook dinner, though we did bring everything we didn't, the staff offered utensils, plates etc as well. There is a very nice restaurant a 1 minute walk down the street as well. I would stay here again and recommend to any one in the area

Travelling with a visiting friend I took my two young daughters and we stayed at the water front cottage room a. The location is incredible beachfront access no stairs. Really enjoyed watching seals from our deck. The cottage is well appointed with everything you need to accommodate your stay. Staff were incredibly friendly and very helpful. At my daughter locked us out of the bathroom and they were there within 10 minutes to solve the problem. Also there was a significant storm coming to the area on our last day of intended stay. We were able to cancel without being charged for that last day. If you’re going to Campobello great place to stay.

Wonderful place, great rooms, very peaceful and relaxing. I left my laptop charger in the room and the brilliant staff even mailed it back to my home. They went above and beyond and it was very much appreciated. Thoroughly recommended!

We spent a lovely night at Friars Bay in a cottage directly on the beach with a private deck. The queen beds were very comfortable and the kitchenette and bath were well-equipped. All the staff we interacted with were so friendly and easygoing. A real gem.

Small (10 rooms) inn, recently upgraded. Small but cute room, no air conditioning.
Could hear every word spoken in next room.
Very pleasant management. Good value for the price and a nice restaurant a short walk down the road.
