“Beyond comfortable”
Reviewed 23 November 2011

The fact that this Inn was a former sardine factory was intriguing enough to get us to book for three nights, but we were also a bit concerned about what we were getting ourselves into. When Judy walked us into our room we felt right at home. We literally were over the water with the best view we have ever had by far – the window is west facing so the sunsets over the water were georgous. We used the many decks, indoor common areas, common kitchen and their most unique restaurant with the freshest seafood anywhere - the fish is purchased directly from the fishermen’s catch as they come off the water.

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean - no bad views ! 'Moonrise' is a good room. The apartments (compare...

This is a very unique "stay" and an opportune discovery for the bed & breakfast enthusiast. These century old cannerys dot the coasline of American/Canadian northeast Atlantic coast. Many an entrepreneur has taken one up and sink with the tide. Not so here. Victor & Judy have turned a old crow into a spring chic. But don't expect vintage, It is minimalistic modern. They have taken full advantage of a beautiful & authentic seaside location. The Inn is clean & comfortable, and really fun!

We stayed here 2 nights in in ocean view room in Oct. The room is basic but the view is spectacular in the morning. Bed is comfortable. The inn has a restaurant serving breakfast lunch and dinner. Breakfast is the best meal there. Excellent coffee and eggs and pancakes are to die for. One of the highlights is a tour of the lobster holding tanks underneath the Inn by the owner. Ask for the tour! We would definitely go back!

The owners, Victor and Judy, have converted a derelict sardine canning factory into a delightfully charming Inn, which is literally "on the Wharf". Our room was large, light and airy, and had a pleasant Scandinavian 'piney' feel to it - very comfortable, clever decoration, and well appointed with warm lighting, armchairs, a chest of drawers, a comfy bed, and lots of wall-plugs for charging electronics. All the rooms are right on the water, and there is a large communal area with cooking facilities, refrigerator, crockery, wine-glasses, a printer and a comfortable well-lit sitting-area. There is Wi-Fi throughout - complimentary (as it should be everywhere), and covered parking for your car.

Victor, Judy and their staff gave us a warm welcome, and we enjoyed some excellent draught beer before dining in their refreshingly simple restaurant, with terrace overlooking the wharf. To choose our meal, Victor took my wife and me to his lobster holding tanks, underneath the Inn, and we chose our lobster for dinner. In fact, I personally carried it back to the restaurant!

The next day, we went whale-watching in Victor's new 42' diesel launch, and saw 3 minke whales, 26 bald-headed eagles, 5 lighthouses, lots of porpoise, and millions of sea-birds - a beautiful excursion. Before departing the Inn, we grabbed a 'lobster roll sandwich' which had more lobster than bread!

A good experience, great value, worth the trip - we really enjoyed our stay. Book in advance - they're getting busy, and they close for the cold season.

Room Tip: All rooms are over the water, and are the same length - rooms with verandas have smaller weather-pro...

How can a former sardine factory be so charming? Every room has a picture window of the bay and most rooms have a balcony overlooking the bay with its ever changing scenes. After checking in we were exploring the building and wharf when Victor, the owner, asked if we would like a tour of the lobster tanks. His tour was fascinating and we learned so much about the seafood industry. He is very friendly and gracious. It is amazing how this concrete factory has been converted into a comfortable and attractive hotel. There was a sense of peace and quiet about the place. Our room was simple yet elegant. The common area was impressive with a full, well equipped kitchen and several sitting areas. It would be the perfect place to share with a group of friends. With no TV it may not be the place for some kids.
