This hotel is just about 3 minutes drive to pleasant bay to view the sun set and walk on the beach. It is on the road side of Cabot Trail. We stayed here after visiting east half of the Cape Brenton island. Room is very basic, but they keep clean. You feel the room like the rented cottages home.
Pros: Location, friendly staff, decent restaurant
Cons: At this location I don't have much to complain.

The rustic off-grid lifestyle here isn't for everyone though it's mighty cosy and a perfect getaway for self-reliant singles and couples. But make no mistake, there's no flush toilet, electricity, TV, or cell service, and the nearest WiFi hotspot is a 5-mile drive. There is an outhouse and an outdoor on-demand hot shower and an outdoor clawfoot tub with a sunset view, but if you depend on a fully modern bathroom you won't be happy here. If you want to get away from the modern zoom zoom zoom then you'll have found paradise. There's a landline for emergencies, but let go of all that — tune in to the eagles, moose, and whales cruising by, and listen to the babble of the brook or the waves crashing on the rocks below. The lookout cabin sits atop an 85 foot cliff overlooking the warm summer waters of the Gulf of St Lawrence. The sunsets over the water are fabulous. The yard is private and the cabin is not visible from the road. The kitchen appliances, stove, oven, cooler, and lighting all run on propane, handcranks, batteries, or solar. There's a woodstove for heat should you need it. Dishes, cookware and utensils are provided, as well as clean linens, but bring your own towels. This is a nature lover's paradise, a place to reconnect with the natural world and recharge your batteries in that way you can only get where the sky is huge and the mountains crash into the sea. $800/week for 1 or 2 person occupancy, $900/week for 3 or 4 Weeks run Saturday afternoon to Saturday morning Offseason retreats available by the month
