Formerly operated as the Riverside Lodge during the 1960’s through to the 1980’s, this century and a half year old home has since been completely renovated. Offering 3 large bedrooms for your enjoyment, each have been newly decorated with a hint of antique furnishings to compliment those found throughout the house. Even the original hardwood floors have been refinished to their original luster throughout the rooms!

Whether you are visiting the Eastern Shore to enjoy our beautiful beaches and scenery, getting together with old or new friends, or just needing to rest your weary head after a long day of traveling, you will find our home to be the perfect, serene destination.

Freshly baked goodies are served each evening and a Keurig is available in the living room for your refreshment leisure.

A full hot breakfast is served each morning between 8:00 – 9:00 a.m. in the large dining-room overlooking the river. Cereal, juice, tea and coffee, fruit tray, homemade muffins and bread, locally made jam, Alf’s blueberry pancakes and quiche are
just a sampling of breakfast favourites served each morning. Special dietary needs can also be accommodated.

We are sure you will find the view from the full length veranda to be most relaxing. We encourage you to walk our trails, and/or enjoy the amenities made available in the pergola, giving you a bird’s eye view of the mouth of the river.
