We were assigned a chalet cabin which was nicely laid out and with a propane fireplace to keep us warm. The furniture was just plain "Old" and it totally lacked any charm. We chose to try it here as we often stay at their sister property The Blomidon Inn in Wolfville NS which is wonderful and always fun. It was early in their season but we felt they could have done at least a thorough cleaning of our chalet.
My wife was having some tests done at a nearby hospital and we thought this would be a way to change a dreary trip into a pleasant experience. It was in early June and the weather was bleak but that usually is a great time to enjoy a cozy stay, the manager was barely nice and any time we asked for even the most tiny change to our meals we were reminded that there were no chance they could give us anything other than the menu description. I am sure things are better when the full staff is on (at least I hope so) but we wont think of returning for a second try.
