We stayed in one of the cottages. Very clean with a comfortable deck. We sat out there and had cocktails and played a board game. Owner very friendly. Center of downtown. Tom's Pizza directly across the street was great.

The location was perfect for us as we did not have a car. Close to the meetup point for the Cabot Trail bus tour, excellent breakfast right across the street at the Wheeler, wonderful dinner at their onsite restaurant, very centrally located -a short walk to the waterfront, restaurants, the drugstore and shopping. Very charming decor. Would definitely stay there again.
