Official Site of the oceanfront Amherst Shore Country Inn & Historic Ketchum Cottages.

The Amherst Shore Country Inn offers Nova Scotia oceanfront  accommodations between Amherst & Pugwash Nova Scotia. At the Inn, you can find the privacy of a Nova Scotia hotel yet at the same time enjoy the charm of a Bed and Breakfast. Additionally, the Inn has available two of the most interesting and fully equipped historic seaside cottages in Nova Scotia.


This seaside Country Inn sits on a knoll overlooking a panoramic view of the sea. It’s a perfect vista for the superb gourmet dinners served each evening by reservation only. With over a thousand feet of beachfront, over a mile of woods trails and accommodations with all the comforts of home, the Amherst Shore Country Inn is a perfect place for seaside holiday or that needed getaway, any season of the year. And, with HDTV & complimentary Wi-Fi, you’re always connected when you need to be.


The Inn offers a range of accommodations including elegant chalets, comfortable suites & rooms and 3 seasonal rustic seaside cottages. The latter include two historic waterfront cottages 2 miles away, at Tidnish Dock. These two cottages were originally used by Henry Ketchum as he endeavoured to complete a railroad to transport sailing ships from the Northumberland Strait to the Bay of Fundy. It was North America’s largest Civil Engineering project of the 1800′s.


The inn is located on Nova Scotia’s Northumberland Strait, in Lorneville. It’s just 15 minutes from historic Port Elgin, New Brunswick, 20 minutes from Amherst, Nova Scotia and 40 minutes from Canada’s Spectacular Confederation Bridge (to PEI). The Amherst Shore Country Inn is a great place to enjoy Nova Scotia – Canada’s seaside playground.


Come, put your toes in the sea, swim at high tide! You’ll find it refreshing to be at the heart of the Canada’s Historic Maritimes. And, you’ll enjoy the hospitality of the Laceby family – a Nova Scotia Tradition since 1980.
