Travellers' Choice
The Lighthouse Motel & Cottages is one of only a few remaining 1950s drive-in motels in Nova Scotia. Under new ownership and management since Spring 2017, all 15 air-conditioned units have been completely renovated creating a boutique lodging experience along the LaHave River. Blending modern Canadiana with eclectic coastal elements, The Lighthouse boasts 500 feet of waterfront with a small private beach as well as several acres of green space appointed with communal BBQs, picnic tables for al fresco dining and various seating areas highlighted by a large communal firepit. Unique to the property is a renovated boathouse cottage converted into 3 studios directly on the LaHave River & a 2 bedroom cottage that can accommodate up to 6 guests. Situated on the historic Lighthouse Route minutes away from Crescent & Rissers Beaches, the property is perfectly situated for exploring nearby Lunenburg, Mahone Bay & Kejimkujik National Park. Oh, & dogs are welcome here!

Everything from start to finish was perfect for the duration of our stay at lighthouse motel and cottages. We went down with some friends to celebrate a birthday and the thanksgiving weekend. The accommodations were excellent and very well-kept. They are dog-friendly which was amazing for our doodle !! The owners were extremely nice and courteous and we felt right at home. Highly recommend this place for nice relaxing getaway !!

The room looked exactly as it looked on the website. Very clean. The owner and the staff we've met are very friendly. The water view was great, we wish we could take it home :) It was quiet although it was fully occupied. I am sure we will be back!

We found this little gem on line actually by mistake we thought we booked something in Lunenburg . So glad we found it ! The people were great. The accommodations were great! We rented one of the boat house suites, they are decorated so nicely . You wake to see and hear the water. The first morning I got up and watched the sunrise and sat with my coffee by the water it was so peaceful and relaxing. Will definatley make a return trip!

I cannot say enough about this spot! I highly recommend for anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay on the South Shore. Marc and Shelley are amazing and have so many little thoughtful touches waiting for you! The location is fantastic with so many great beaches and restaurants close by and I highly recommend staying at the boathouse right on the water. The suites are so quaint and with the option for boat rides or a big bonfire with the other guests, this is truly a perfect spot! We will be back for sure!
