We (a group of 4) recently rented the two bedroom cottage (1 queen / 2 twins) @ Lighthouse Motel & Cottages. There was also a Murphy's bed to easily enable 6 people to share! Check in was easy and in fact the owner allowed early check in (accommodating our tee time for golf).

We stayed here in late Aug and absolutely loved it! We were very apprehensive as it looked like an old school motel but the reviews said otherwise and I am glad we listened to the reviews. We were lucky to stay in the boathouse which is right on the water. Outside there are

Nice spot right on the river with safe swimming area when the tide is in. Recent updated decor is attractive and fun. Facility is older but owners have made numerous improvements throughout. Quiet out-of-town location but not far from Bridgewater restaurants.

We were two couples and stayed in the 2-bedroom cottage near the water. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. We had easy check in. There were 12 of us in total staying at the cottages. 2 groups up in the "motel style" rooms and 2 in the row cottages. Everyone was pleased with their accommodations. We went into town for supper at a local pub. From our cottage, we witnessed the most awesome sunrise while enjoying our morning coffee! Recommending this location for a stay is an easy one!

having never been to N.S. would this be a good location to see that part of N.S.
Yes, lots of place to explore! It is close enough to Lunenberg and Mahone Bay, that travel is easy.
