Close enough to Peggy's Cove Lighthouse, but far enough away from the maddening crowd. The couple that owns this are fun and caring people. The rooms are beautiful, with each one having an incredible view out the back window. It is very clean and inviting and the grounds are well kept and pretty. I enjoyed my stay there and would certainly go back the next time I am in Nova Scotia. A short 5 minute ride to the "Light". A short 40 minute drive from Halifax, but worlds away in the scenery and ambience.

Room Tip: All are good!!

In the area for a wedding, there are not many options for accommodation. We booked at Clifty Cove as a default. We struggled a little at check-in because the person who was left in charge of the desk, as nice as she was, did not speak much English so we were left to fend for ourselves a bit.

The room itself we were pleasantly surprised with. Spacious, bright, with a fridge, and a stunning view over the water. It turns out, though, that despite the views being similar, the decor appears to be more outdated in some rooms than others. We were in room 7 and it was lovely; my mum and aunts were a few doors down and it looked like the room hadn't been touched since 1970.

We comfortably shared a room with another couple so felt we got our money's worth. I have definitely slept in more comfortable beds, but I have also slept in worse. I felt the room was well-equipped, and exactly what we were looking for.

Room Tip: Room #7 had two large beds and was well decorated. Shared comfortably with another couple.

We stayed for one night in August. The most beautiful sunset my mom and I have ever seen. We were right on the water. Kept our window open all night and could hear the waves crashing and buoy dinging. It was so relaxing. Just what we came to Nova Scotia for.

Room Tip: Try to stay in either 1, 2 or 3. We stayed in room 3 and the view was perfect!

We stayed at Clifty Cove for one night on our trip through Nova Scotia and found it to be very inviting. The owners were exceptionally friendly & we appreciated their welcoming our golden retriever. Absolutely gorgeous view from our window and around the back of the motel there were chairs and a little fire pit set up so you could sit and enjoy the sound of the waves crashing in along the shore and the beautiful view. The cottage itself was extremely clean, quiet and complete with fridge, microwave & coffee pot. The one thing I did miss was an outlet in the bathroom for my curling iron & hairdryer but made do with another socket in the main living area....no big deal! All in all, we would definitely recommend this place to any of our friends and wish the owners well.

We stayed Aug 2nd 2013 for 1 night - it was a great place - very clean and owners are exceptionally friendly - opened the windows and slept like little kids in the fresh air .. all you can hear is the water and the birds in the morning - will be venturing back on our next visit out east.
Our room had a perfect view of the cove and enjoyed our wine right on the rocks outside - a great place to stay and really relax - extremely welcoming owners !! thank you.

We stayed at Clifty Cove Motel while in Indian Harbor.
The Motel room was very clean and had a great view out the back window which you can leave open to hear the waves right outside the room.
The owners were very friendly accommodating and helpful!
We would recommend this motel and appreciate the hospitality we received!

My husband and I and another couple stayed the Clifty Cove one night on our East Coast vacation. The owners were extremely kind and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed the little red campfire in a can that the owner set up for us despite the rain. Thank you so much!! The rooms were super clean, beds were comfy and the view is fantastic. Very close to Peggy's Cove and the memorial site for Swiss Air flight 111. We wish we'd had more time to stay longer.
