I travel to the area once or twice a year for work and stay here every year. I've read the negative reviews and to be honest I've never seen anything but cordial hospitality from Russ and his wife. He's very up front about the rules...More

Comfortable room with an incredible view. Sand beach, nice surf just a walk away. There is a restaurant just down the hill. Breakfast was continental and the coffee was good. Staff was helpful and cheerful.

About
Description
Cape View Motel and Cottages, Mavillette, Digby County, Nova Scotia, Canada is far enough away to be enjoyable, and yet close enough to have all the amenities of two Nova Scotia towns. Yarmouth is only ...More 20 mile drive with Digby a mere 40 miles. Enjoy a comforting stay while exploring a picture postcard view of Mavillette Beach, Cape St., Mary's fishing village, lighthouse, Saint Mary's Bay and the Bay of Fundy! Less

No, there are no A/C in our units. There is seldom any need as the ocean breeze is almost constant!!
