As you approach, you see a great view of the water and then the main lodge building and it's cabins and chalets come into view. Have stayed in both the chalets and the regular rooms. The chalet is fabulous and when you look at the regular cabins (there are 4 rooms to each) from the outside you think oh no...

My wife Karen and I spent one night at the Pictou Lodge and loved it. The staff are quite friendly and helpful. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms, which was a little dated, but clean and well maintained. You will skirt a small private lake upon arrival. People on paddle boards and in kayaks made us want to...

9 members of my family stayed at Pictou Lodge in early September in a variety of accommodations. The original log cabins are a bit tired (none of the doors closed!) with a view little issues, but it was a fantastic beachfront location, the new cottages with the mezzanine third bedrooms were fantastic and the motel type rooms were fine too....

Given that this property has been in business since 1926 we have to applaud how it is in great shape. Clean, comfortable, great location, housekeeping folks doing great work, outside maintenance not only good but fun for conversation. Breakfast is expensive. We passed it up the second morning. Both dinners were very good, and with advance reservation we landed a...

In mid August our wives spent the day at the Jost Winnery tour and decided to wrap up the day with a few drinks on the Pictou Lodge Patio followed by dinner. Husbands showed up around 7.00 to make the group 11. initially, the waitress had been told 8 so this caused some delays but no worries, eventually we were...

Does this place really need a review? It's one of the grand dames in the lodging world - not only in Canada, but internationally. Reminded my boyfriend and I of The Lodge at the Grand Canyon, but more refined. Much more refined. Plus, you need to make a reservation at least a year in advance for the Grand Canyon's finest...

The view from the dining room is amazing, situated on the water facing PEI. I ordered the brie starter which was delicious and the lamb rack which was also delicious but the lamb pieces were very small so it wasn't as filling as it ought to have been. For desert, I ordered the deep fried apple pie and it was...

Managed to get to this place three times this summer, twice for lunch and once for Sunday Brunch. On all occasions it did not disappoint. The lobster rolls are wonderful, and the brunch was great. We especially liked the way it was arranged, with different types of food in each corner. That way, there was never a line up. Brekki...
