My spouse and I stayed four nights at the Morton House Inn, which has the aura of the Victorian nouveau riche, set amidst towering locust trees on the Mersey River, Nova Scotia. Colours are dark, and the well-worn furnishings lend an air of opulence just before the fall. (And indeed, when the lumber boom went bust in the late 1880s, this place had rougher times). No a/c in our room, but the cross-breeze kept our room cool. Comfortable-sized bathroom and bathroom. The parlour, library and porch offered all sorts of reading, resting and chatting options (but we mostly chatted between ourselves since we were the only guests for three of our nights). Good breakfasts. Aside from the main house, there are motel-style housekeeping units at the back.
