We stayed at Laurie's for 3 nights after seeing the place on the internet and were very pleased with our choice. We originally booked a Queen room in the homestead section which was very nice but when we enquired about coffee making facilities we were offered the V.I.P suite at an impossible to refuse reduced rate. ( $150.00 per night - bargain )
The suite is fabulous with seperate lounge, fully equiped kitchen, large bedroom, massive balcony and 2 bathrooms, one with shower and the other with a huge whirlpool tub. We went to the local co-op and got supplies in for breakfast which offset some of the extra cost.
Laurie's is family owned and has been running since 1938.
The staff were really friendly and very helpful. There is lots of local information available in reception where whale watching and fishing trips etc can be arranged for you. Laurie's is centrally located in Cheticamp and is right off the main street overlooking the sea and Cheticamp Island.
The rooms are large and well equiped with the usual T.V. , hair dryer etc. There is a restaurant for breakfast or dinner as well as a cocktail lounge with terrace. There is also a laundromat for guests use which we found very useful.
We wouldn't hesitate to stay here if we are ever lucky enough to return to the area and would also recommend Laurie's to others.
When we arrived in Chéticamp, we phoned all the B&B's looking for accommodation. Even though it was close to mid-September, the B&B's appeared to be full. We started to check out the motels, and found a sign describing a B&B at Merry's Motels. Merry's has 6 motel rooms, but they also have 3 B&B rooms in their home.
We found these lodgings very satisfactory and at quite reasonable rates. They are located in mid-Chéticamp and had an OK breakfast. Plus our hostess, Susan is Swiss (which is a personal plus to me).
You can see from the picture (beside the old-growth tree) the bright yellow table (my wife loves bright yellow tables), the Cabot Trail, the Gulf of St. Lawrence behind, Chéticamp Island behind that, a museum across the Trail, only a corner of Merry's B&B on the right.
