Make sure you take Route 1 along the French Shore from Yarmouth to Digby! Chez Christophe in Grosse Cocques for the best/most reasonable dining. Reservations a must for dinner. Entertainment on Thursday 6-8....don't expect to get a table in the kitchen, where the music action is!! Visit the Gilberts Cove Lighthouse, the folks there are the most hospitable anywhere. What a wonderful break for tea!! Scotia Bay Motel in Brighton units are clean and reasonable. Unbelievable tide movement at the end of Digby Neck. Worth the drive just to watch the ferry maneuver. Gaspereau Winery in Gaspereau, short drive from Wolfville. Also nice 30 minute tour of the Bear Valley Winery in Bear River, scenic drive from 101. If you have the time, take Route 1 instead of 101, unless you like trees! Kingston Diner for homemade Coconut cream pie....

Greetings from Tennessee! I have been unemployed since October of 2008 but, still have plenty of Delta Sky Miles, Intercontinental Hotel points and remain optimistic in high spirits. My bride (of 26 years) loves Lobster so I thought eating our weight in it would be a nice break from the doldrums of unemployment. When last we did this in Maine it was wonderful visiting all of the roadside Lobster shacks for inexpensive but wonderful meals. A friend suggested PEI so I'm seeking advice on the best places to go for a 3 to 5 day trip. We enjoy off the path places with quaint (known to the locals) restaurants and little or no tourists type attractions.
After reading all of these wonderful reviews and suggestions I realize that we're cutting it short on time however, until employed again a quick trip will must suffice to wet our whistle for a return adventure.
We're 57 & 60, plan to travel in late September, in good enough shape for a 3 mile hike and enjoy everything outdoors. A good local pub with music is a plus and affordable lodging is a must.
Thank you all for your thoughts.
Yours in Lobster we remain.
