Reviewed 12 March 2017

This is a place just to be...walk the boardwalk around the property, have a glass of wine and read by the wood stove. It is wheelchair accessible if need be. No wifi, no tv. Just enjoy the person/people you are with. It has a cook top stove and bar-b-q so plan your meals accordingly. Time does not seem to matter...

Wow! What a hidden gem this place is. We have driven by dozens of times on our way to the south shore via highway #8 and were always curious. I chose a two-night stay for my husband's birthday and could not have found a better place for "the avid hunter/angler" who is difficult to buy for!After turning off the highway...

Go here! Don't question it. Absolutely epic location. Lodging choices include, a private chalet, a pretty nice condo, a bunk room in a cabin, Tepees or pitch your own tent. The entire property has been carefully and sensitively developed with as little impact as possible. The tepees have wonderful beds with memory foam. The entire property on the Mersey River...

I stayed here a few years ago and I would not hesitate to stay there again. The grounds are absolutely beautiful with raised wheelchair accessible walkways throughout their property. The cabin itself was tastefully decorated and in the woods and felt very secluded although you were really not far away from the restaurant , tipis and office. They had a...

Thanks so much for your feedback. It is very much appreciated. Unfortunately, Magic, our cat, who was the best guest greeter, has passed away and is no longer with us :( Hope to see you again sometime in the future. Andrea

Wonderful place for families looking for a nature and canoeing holiday. Peaceful and relaxing. Very enjoyable and safe outdoors environment for small children and teenagers alike. Chalets are clean and spacious (5 persons), included in the price are the sports facilities- canoeing and swimming in two lakes on site.

Four adults comfortably shared a large cottage in this beautiful location. Lovely woods right on the Mersey River. We also appreciated the easy -- and free! -- access to canoes and kayaks for exploring the river and the swimming raft. We look forward to a return visit, perhaps in the fall.

I wanted to stay near the Kejimkujic National Park, and sure enough, this accommodation is 5K away from the National Park. It is situated right along the Mersey River. Andrea was the hostess and oriented me around. They have different kinds of accommodations with varied prices. One that I could afford were the tents which are older than the tipis...

Thank you for your feedback and we're glad you enjoyed the location and proximity to the park. We offer a variety of experiences in a nature retreat setting. The wall tent ($90) and tipi ($75) are our camping options, which include shared facilities. The parking is away from the camping area to try and cut down on the vehicle noise,...

Beautiful, tranquil setting. Cabin was lovely and all the staff were very friendly. Wonderful place to get away and simply enjoy the beauty of nature. There were other cabins nearby but you felt as if you were on your own. Hope to get back in the fall to enjoy the change of season.

We stayed in a chalet in June, amid the black flies. There were no eating facilities open at this time of year. There is a roadside cafe a few kilometres from the lane off the main road. It's very basic and not open for long during the evening.

Thanks for your feedback, Steve. Early June is a challenging time for us in the rural area of Nova Scotia and we are aware that services are limited. I am sorry you did not have a very good experience while visiting. We are open to any suggestions so we can improve our services. Andrea

This was our third time visiting and had a wonderful 3 night stay. Chalet is cozy and comfortable with everything you need. Enjoyed relaxing in front of the wood stove. Beautiful setting in the woods with the sound of the river running and starry nights. Close to Keji for lots of hiking opportunities. Can't wait for our next visit.

“The small chalets are perfect for a family of four, even four adults. The kitchen is well equipped; the nearest store is about 20 minutes away, so you may want to stock up on groceries before you arrive.”
