I try to always leave positive reviews and give people the benefit of the doubt. However after returning to the area to visit family after many years, and staying at the cape view motel, I felt obligated to post something about the experience. Instead of rambling I'll just highlight the issues #1 owner argued with me that I parked in...

When the first thing a guest does is not be forthcoming about how many people will be staying in the room, you bet I keep an eye on them. If you decided to stay in the room with your family rather than take the one minute walk to a three mile long beach, that's on you.

Motel had a picture window at the front and at the back of the room, with the most breathtaking views of the Bay of Fundy and St. Mary's lighthouse. The king bed was very comfortable and also the owners were full of information of the area. Great for all ages in a relaxing atmosphere.Also a help yourself good breakfast.

Thank you for the awesome review! Its good to hear that you enjoyed the beauty of Mavillette and Cape St. Mary's!

You have a perfect view in Mavillette Beach which is only a few minutes walk away. The sunsets you can watch from your window or at the beach are breathtaking. You get an continental breakfast even even when you are staying in a cabin. The cabins are very nice, too. There is a beautiful A-frame next to the motel. It's...

It was just serendipitous that we found this place and decided that it looked almost unreal in its semi-remoteness on a hillside right on the water with very little else around. It was shrouded in deep fog when we arrived and seemed almost dreamy. It has charm and a friendly, family vibe with the relaxed owners and even one guest...

Great atmosphere here. Lovely couple and great to chat with other visitors over breakfast. The beach is literally right next door too! A quiet community so typical to have a massive stunning beach to yourself. And great stars too!

I live away but am originally from the area. I visit often and always book a room for a night or 2 while I am home. I had been staying in a local place but decided to try this hotel for a change since I loved this beach when I was a kid. It was a horrible experience and will...

In the past eight years we have owned this property we have come to realize there are two types of smokers. There are the respectful ones that are considerate of the other 14 patrons of the motel & cottages, and there are the ones that seem to have no consideration for others. We have a large {almost a half acre}...

We read reviews and decided on this spot for our first night after getting off the CAT. It was around 1/2 hour drive from the pier. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but as others have said, it's clean and safe and a stone's throw to a beautiful beach. I'm an early riser so was up with the sun...

Another fabulou Nova Scotia view. However: as soon as we started to register, owner was sarcastic to the point that aggravated us both. We are a couple, both in our sixties, knowing ahead of time that the place would be wanting of quiet, serene times. Luckily, the one restaurant in the area that was across the street had fabulous haddock....

So sorry you feel this way! Since you can see the lighthouse from the motel, we do not always see the need to tell people this information. Sometimes we suggest if we sense people are open to it. Some people have their own agenda. We are definitely not perfect though, so we do apologize. Thank you for the muffin comment!!

We stayed in Cabin 4 and previously in Cabin 5 which are identical. There are 2 bedrooms with very comfortable beds, one with a queen and the other with 2 singles. The cottage also has a bathroom, kitchen and living room, deck and clothesline ! There is everything you can possibly need in the cottage. There is also a fire...

This place is all about the beach and the view. Soft sandy beach is close. The rooms are nice enough and clean. The owners like the place to be quiet, so not a place to go party. Best for families and couples looking for a romantic getaway. Not very close to a town or amenities aside from a local restaurant...
