We stayed here on our first night in Nova Scotia--I have never regretted anything more! Owner is abusive and mean, he illegally charged my credit card for "violating" a policy he never even made us aware of! He literally chased us off of his property...More

Comfortable room with an incredible view. Sand beach, nice surf just a walk away. There is a restaurant just down the hill. Breakfast was continental and the coffee was good. Staff was helpful and cheerful.

About
Description
Cape View Motel and Cottages, Mavillette, Digby County, Nova Scotia, Canada is far enough away to be enjoyable, and yet close enough to have all the amenities of two Nova Scotia towns. Yarmouth is only More 20 mile drive with Digby a mere 40 miles. Enjoy a comforting stay while exploring a picture postcard view of Mavillette Beach, Cape St., Mary's fishing village, lighthouse, Saint Mary's Bay and the Bay of Fundy! Less

No, there are no A/C in our units. There is seldom any need as the ocean breeze is almost constant!!
