In preparation for our bicycle trip, I had booked ahead for accommodations at the Friar's Bay Motor Lodge because it was beside the sea instead of the golf course, where the other main establishment was. This motel has a row of small adjoining units running down the hillside from it's main Office, but I elected to go for the more expensive Cottage located directly on the beach (C$102 or US$88, including taxes). I figured that, after a day of biking, it would be nicer to be able to relax by the water with a few cold beers in hand - and I was right!
The Cottage is actually the former motel Restaurant, which has been retired and divided in half to provide two rooms for accommodations. Our half consisted of a single large room with a full kitchen, dining room and beds, as well a separate toilet/shower room. The large front window overlooked a very healthy looking stand of wild roses with a view out over the water to Lubec, Maine. Although we could not check-in until about 2-3 PM, the motel office kept our backpacks for us while we spent the day biking out and back from the very picturesque lighthouse at Head Harbour. No complaints about either the beds or the shower!
