  • We went there to spend a night at the light keeper's guesthouse. I was not sure about the ground clearance but I could have easily drove to the house with the awd. There was a bit of a storm with high...  more »
  • This is an amazing place. I can't even begin to explain it. Over looking the ocean next to a light house. Wow. There is definitely a walk down from the parking lot so I recommend a small bag for the n...  more »
  • The Cape d'Or Lighthouse and restaurant and hotel is located at the end of a 6km dirt road. One can drive to the end of the road but the last 500m must be walked. We did not go to the lighthouse and t...  more »

  • The setting is quaint with character although the lighthouse is very small and not functional anymore.The view of the cliffs are amazing but treacherous if you approach the edge of the cliff to look down. We went on a cloudy day, but it was still pleasant. The scent of wild roses bushes along the path down to the lighthouse was a plus. Looking further out to sea, one can observe tidal intercept,where the currents meet and form slight rapids. The drive to this location is a dirt road , bumpy in parts.
  • It’s been years since we discovered this gem. It’s out of the way and well worth the adventure to get there. Fascinating view and delicious food!
  • Great spot to hike to. Seals. Riptides. View. Steep decline. Difficult walk. Take a book. Relax for the day. Don't forget your camera ☺
  • Amazing view of the lighthouse, bay of Fundy and rock formations. It is worth climbing back up to the parking lot. We stayed there overnight so I got to see the sunset and sunrise and it is just so amazing. The rooms are clean and the food at the light keeper's restaurant was the best! They are all very accommodating. We can not complain 😀 you can bring your car down if you stay overnight.
  • The accommodations and the host is casual and laid back. Pack lightly. If you can tackle the steep slope to get here, then you will get the best view of the Bay of Fundy. Totally worth the stay.
