From the moment we drove onto the property, being welcomed by "Hank the Tank", I knew this was going to be a great weekend. The main lodge itself is fantastic. The high ceilings, exposed beams and large stone fireplace make it so cozy and inviting! (The large table-sized crib board also helps). We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom...

This was a wonderful place to stay! The owners were very friendly and helpful!

Yes, I did say "By the Sea" because being perched on the shores of the massive Bras D' Or Lake which is some 60 miles long feels just like being on the ocean. Each of the wonderful cottages here have occupancy for two families, one on the second floor and one on the first. They are wonderfully furnished and have...

Sometimes you see a place advertised on the web and it looks good, only to get there and be bitterly disappointed. Well... this time it was exactly how it was described and if possible... even better. The welcome by Renie was warm and very Canadian.

If you enjoy a coffee in the morning on the porch just a few steps from the lake watching the loons fish for breakfast you'll love this facility. There are 12 beautifully appointed 2 bedroom cottages perfectly equipped so you can enjoy cooking up some local mussels. The Lodge is managed by a true gem-Renie who couldn't have made you...

I stayed here with a large group of family members and it was just perfect! The cottages sleep 8 people downstairs and 6 people upstairs with separate kitchens and bathrooms for each unit.
