We stayed here because they property allows pets and we were travelling with our dog. The location is convenient if you're doing both side of the trail. Also the property has a restaurant that's open till 9pm and serves breakfast. The rooms are very very dated and in need of some renos but decent enough for one or two nights. The beds in room #12 are not comfortable though.

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Amenities
It was clean and easily accessible. The mattress is very hard and the sheets and duvet synthetic (static); there is no fridge and no kettle which would have been nice. Also a lot of noice whenever a neighbour uses the water (shower, faucet, toilet). Wifi available but speed limited. Location was good for my itinerary, would not stay there again.

The Inn was in a nice location, on the Cabot Trail with the mountains nearby. I was a bit disappointed that the Inn was so dated and had very few amenities. There was no phone in the room nor a hair dryer which seem basic. I felt it was over priced for what you get!
