We have never stayed there, but you will love the area. It is on the largest salt water lake in the world, near the start of the Cabot Trail. There is lots of good swimming, fishing, hiking, on & off road drives. It is about an hour from the Newfoundland Ferry Terminal, and nearby some of the best golf in North America, Ingonish Beach, Bell Bay, and a new Links course just opened.
You'll love it.
