St Ann’s is Taking Care of You!!
Great location, very comfortable and impeccably clean room at the waters edge. The views of the bay are fantastic. The owner was very friendly and informative and shows that she truly cares for her guests. She volunteered great information for area attractions and restaurants all around the Cabot Trail. Nice sea food restaurant right next door. We stayed two nights and highly recommend this motel to anyone with highest of standards and expectations. This is an example of what the authentic Cabot Trail hospitality is all about. We WILL be back. Thank you Tina!

Wunderschöne Aussicht auf den See und direkt am Cabot Trail. Leider gibt es in der Nähe keine Möglichkeit zu frühstücken und man muss mindestens eine halbe Stunde fahren, bis man etwas zu essen bekommt. Abends gibt es ein Restaurant direkt daneben.
