It was lovely to listen to the waves at night and to swim in the salt water. As cereal eaters we were disappointed to find one bowl for cereal; on the other hand there was everything else you would need for a cottage stay.

Bill and Patty are great hosts and the location couldn’t be any better. The boathouse cottage is rustic, cosy and comfortable and we would definitely recommend.

The location is beautiful and quiet. You can swim in the water (though it is a little cold). Easy to get to the Cabot Trail.
