My wife grew up on the Anne of Green Gables books and more than anything she wanted to stay at this hotel. We were able to book one night, July 29th, and it was more than we could have ever hoped for.
We had any absolutely beautiful room with a wonderful view of the lake and sea. We spent some time on the nearby beach just walking and wading in the water. We also decided to have dinner at the hotel's restaurant and we were not disappointed.
The meal was fantastic and the service was amazing. Our host, Mr. Alex, provided excellent suggestions from the menu and our server made sure we didn't lack anything the whole time. Afterwards, we stepped up to the bar for some nice conversation with the bartender and a night cap. Between the bartender (an Irish lady that I hope will forgive me for forgetting her name) and the attendant on duty, they went out of their way to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. (Delivering our drinks to the front porch and even tracking down some bug repelling candles to make our evening more comfortable. We hadn't even ASKED about that. They were just thinking ahead!)
The whole staff made us feel at home for our short stay. My wife was so happy because she had been nervous that after visiting the area and the hotel, it wouldn't live up to her expectations and her childhood fantasies would be tainted and that simply was not the case at all. It exceeded our expectations in every way and we can only hope to visit again someday!
