“Great Place”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

A great spot to stay overnight. I was not too keen on the rabbits, as we watched one get carried away by an eagle. But overall I'd highly recommend this place for anyone.

Room Tip: I think any of the cottages are great!

We have been going to Upper Clements Cottages as an annual family trip for 5 years and we'll be back. They are right beside Upper Clements Fun Park but there is also much to do at the cottages. They have a beautiful heated pool, a small petting zoo, a bunny hutch and wild bunnies that hop around the property. You have to remember to take some food such as carrots, bread and lettuce for your children so they can feed the bunnies while you are there. There is also a walking trail in the woods and the driveway is safe enough for the kids to ride their bikes there. There is also a nice playground, a badminton/volleyball net and horseshoe pits with all the equipment necessary. They have a full kitchen, a bbque, and firepits. You can purchase a wood kit including paper, kindling and firewood for $3 for the firepit. There are also DVDs and games you can borrow for a rainy day. The hosts, Gary and Margaret, are very friendly and accommodating. Can you tell we love it there? Can't wait to go back.

My family and I were lucky enough to stay at Upper Clements Cottages on several occasions and I can honestly say that they really are the best vacation destination! The cottages are very nice, extremely clean and as another reviewer has stated the owners really have thought of everything! They are in the perfect location, right next to Upper Clements Park & very close to Historic Annapolis Royal and nearby beautiful Digby. I would highly recommend Upper Clements Cottages for ANYONE .. they are very appropriate for families but also for a romantic get away or trip with friends. Also I have to say that the owners of Upper Clements Cottages are the nicest people on the planet and extremely helpful in every way! Everyone should ignore the one bad comment because there must have been a misunderstanding - Margaret & Gary are fantastic and very accommodating! Everyone - do yourself a favour & if you are visiting the Annapolis area - stay at Upper Clements Cottages :)

The two-bedroom cottages are the best in Nova Scotia ... spacious, everything you want or need in the kitchen, clean (extremely clean), homey, comfortable, crisp linens (air-dryed on the clothesline), verandah, view of the Annapolis River, lovely pool ... I could go on and on!!! The owners deserve two thumbs up for the care they give to their establishment and their guests. Upper Clements Cottages are next door to Upper Clements Theme Park and very close to many Annapolis Valley tourist attractions ... Port Royal, Fort Anne, whale & bird watching (to name just a few). Four generations of my family (great-grandmother, grandmother, mother and daughter) comfortably stayed here and can geniunely attest to these excellent cottages. We can't wait to go back! Oh, and my granddaughter loved the bunnies and the goats.
PS Make sure you stay for at least a few days!!!

Room Tip: All cottages have two bedrooms (and a pull-out couch in the living room).

Had reservations for 2 nights made months previous for family gathering to celebrate an 80th birthday. Arrived to have to explain who we were 3 times before she could find our reservation. (they only have 7 cottages so how hard could it have been). Then to be told that our reservation was only 1 night and not the 2 booked and confirmed. Then as we were filling out the forms she demanded "are those your children" we said no. The next thing out of her mouth was "is that your dog, because we do not allow dogs". Once again we said no. Then she said there will be a $25 sir charge since your stay is only 1 night. The fact that our reservation was for 2 and they were only honoring 1 night along with ripping us off with a bogus surcharge made this a very unpleasant------ experience. The cottages are nice but the staff are rude to the extreme and that they charge more than a high end hotel in any major city would for a night makes this a place we would never return to , nor would we ever recommend staying here.

UCCottages, Owner at Upper Clements Cottages, responded to this review, 15 September 2011
First of all, this reservation was not made by this person himself, it was made by his mother-in-law, whose 80th birthday party they were coming to celebrate. The mother-in-law, who is actually a neighbor, came to our property on May 1st to make this reservation, as well as 2 more reservations for multiple nights for her grown grandchildren. At the time I questioned her about the one night booking for her daughter and son-in-law and she confirmed that they were ‘only coming from Halifax’, and that was all that was required. A confirmation letter was sent to our neighbor May 2nd confirming all 3 reservations. Regarding have to ‘explain who we were 3 times’ – there were a number of other guests in the office at the same time and this gentleman arrived stating, “I don’t know what name this reservation is in – it could be my name or it could be my mother-in-law’s name”. His reservation card was made up and ready for him – it was just a matter of figuring out what name I was looking for. As to my question of children – we often have guests arrive with additional people so we always ask how many adults and children, and since there were a number of people in the office and I didn’t know if they may have brought their grandchildren with them – this happens and more linens may have been required. There was also someone here with a dog and, since we do not allow dogs, it was an appropriate question, especially since he didn’t make the reservation with us directly and may not have been aware of our no pet policy. On to the $25.00 surcharge – there was no mention of a surcharge on check-in and none was charged. In fact, if this gentleman would check our website, he will see he was given a discounted rate. Our normal rate for a one night booking on a weekend night would be $205.00, plus tax. He was charged $165.00, plus tax. Upon checkout this person’s wife told my husband that she and her husband were up until about 2:00 am preparing food for the birthday party and the kitchen in the cottage worked well for them. As far as we knew, they were happy, with the exception of wanting a 2 night stay – and as his wife stated at check-in – “sometimes Mom gets confused.” Imagine our shock to see this review. Perhaps in future he should make his own travel arrangements or at least ask to see a confirmation. We work very hard to ensure that our guests have an enjoyable stay with us, and other reviews show that we are highly successful with this.
