We needed a quiet week-end break, so we chose the DesBarres Manor Inn for the occasion. Great choice! The small village is becoming quite picturesque and with the setting overlooking Chedabucto Bay, it is hard to go wrong, as this is an amazingly beautiful body of water on our coast. The only down side of the village was the great looking pub, becoming well known for its craft beers, is closed for the season. Go figure!
The Inn itself is quite stately in a laid back way, the rooms were large and welcoming and the beds very comfortable. After a long drive along the Eastern Shore, it was great to be well received by the staff, given a tour of the Inn and escorted to our room. The evening meal was a set four course meal and can only be described as excellent. We travel quite a bit both for work and pleasure and this we both rated as our best dinner in memory. The flavours, quality and presentation were outstanding and we will be going back, long drive or not! Breakfast in the morning was also very enjoyable and as we left the Inn we both had a smile which said we had scored a winner. Highly recommended for a couple wanting a lovely get away.
