My partner and I needed a couple of days out of the city,and we'd heard wonderful things about Oceanstone Inn, so we booked in for an overnight stay.
The property is surrounded by lovely old evergreen trees, natural rocks, a bubbling stream, well placed paths and of course, the ocean.
Our building housed 5 flats, but privacy was perfect and very quiet.We stayed in the Hollyhock suite, which was an open concept flat with lots of windows,old pine beams, rustic pine furniture and a beautiful hardwood floor.Modern as well as rustic, with a balcony and a stunning view of the ocean.
The hot tub was well placed in a cozy corner in front of a window, and provided a relaxing soak after a day of hiking at Pollys Cove-we certainly appreciated the wonderful Terry bath robes! The cove is located a few kilometers to the east and is a part of the Coastal Barrens-we hiked over huge granite rocks guided by a well marked trail just above the ocean-definitely worth experiencing.Bring a camera
Dinner at Rhubarb Cafe' topped off a perfect day, and I was very pleased with the gluten free items on the menu.
In the morning, after a great sleep in the wonderfully comfortable bed, coffee in the kitchen area, we had a walk around the grounds and along the beach front.
At this time of year when flowers are not in bloom and trees are bare,we still enjoyed the beautiful natural surroundings.
Staff were excellent and attentive. We can't wait until we return!
