We, Phyllis & Martin Vree (Proprietors) of the Basinview Motel extend a warm hearted Maritime welcome to those visiting Nova Scotia. We purchased the motel in 1996 and have been noted time and time again for our good will and hospitality ever since. We welcome our guests with a mix of the well known Nova Scotian and Dutch hospitality. (Dutch spoken fluently).

Lovely small motel run by a very friendly couple. Rooms are basic but super clean with a comfy bed. Owners even provided us with old towels to clean the motorcycle. Property is charming and quiet and only minutes away from Digby. Fresh coffee and light breakfast provided.
