The inn is located on the Northumberland Strait near Amherst, Nova Scotia.

Set back from the water on a knoll the views are outstanding.  There are spacious lawns to explore, sprawling vegetable gardens which supply the dining room and a freshwater pond.  The property features 1000+ feet of waterfront where you can walk for miles at low tide on the exposed tidal flats.

Great food makes for a great getaway!

Since being purchased by the Laceby family in 1980, the inn has served regionally inspired cuisine.  Dinners are a 4 course prix fixe offering with everything being made and baked in house.  The menu itself changes each evening to reflect diversity and what’s in season locally. Advance reservations are required.
