My husband and I stayed 3 nights in Cabin 16 which was great! We had our own kitchen, table, couch, bedroom and bathroom to ourselves. The cabin was in great condition and very clean, and very quiet! We had a view of the woods and no cabin close to us! Laura's and Rick were very friendly hosts. Every morning we...

Inviting, clean, and comfortable accommodation with a hidden gem of a lake at the back of the property. Stayed several nights while exploring the Bay of Fundy area, Parrsboro Harbour, Five Islands Park, Cape D'Or Lighthouse, Joggins Fossil Cliffs, and the Eatonville day-use trails at Cape Chignecto Park.

Spent the night here after taking in the annual Parrsboro Gem & Mineral Show. Our cabin was clean and comfortable with lots of towels and extra bedding. The breakfast that was provided was a nice touch and the owners were friendly and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again. The only downside was the tiny tv, but hey, we were...

We stay here every year in a cottage and love the location and the quietness of the property. The owners are very accommodating, they cook you a hot breakfast in the morning. It was amazing!! I actually got the recipe for the roasted potatoes they serve with breakfast. There was a small rabbit eating grass on the lawn and they...

I've passed by this Motel quite a few times when I've traveled the back roads along the Glooscap Trail along Parrsboro, Spring Hill and Amherst so while working in these areas I decided to stay here since it was a very central Motel to stay in. Close to Parrssboro and Spring Hill and around several attractions and close to amenities...

We didn't stay here, we just went for breakfast. Very intimate, home cooked and really nice location. Unfortunately it is up for sale. The owner makes the breakfast and it was very nice. Seemed like people who stay here a lot return.

it's basic and everything else was booked. No major issues - but it definitely had that 'motel air' to it. Convenient location for the kayaking we were doing the following day. Has tv, the shower was clean and the town nearby was nice.

This place sports a motel and a group of cottages. One cottage is equipped with a ramp for wheelchair but all motel rooms would also be accessible. It is just outside Parrsboro, Nova Scotia. Because it is a small family business they do prefer cash or debit. Parrsboro is a small town with many historic features. There is live theatre...

Excellent accomodation operated by excellent people. Breakfast was fantastic. You can't go wrong with this place! The place looks recently renovated and it is just a few minutes outside of Parsborro which has an excellent grocery store and museum and its own theatre.

“Motel is located on a back road Highway that isn't traveled much, that and the area has VERY light traffic so noise isn't an issue.”

“The Motel faces the road but is set back we found it to be very peaceful [ and we live in a very very quiet rural area ]The cottages are further back again - the Road is quiet and the views lovely. The web photos, good as they are don't do it justice - we will add some of our own too .;-)”
