Our cottage was the perfect place for families to vacation. With two bedrooms equipped with a queen bed and the other with two twin beds a family of four can rest comfortably. Loved having a mini-fridge, a patio, a bathtub (perfect for bathing two beach loving boys!) and separate bedrooms for the adults and kids. Clean towels were brought daily and we were just a short walk to the main building where breakfast was served, board games were available and a few steps from a great kids climber and sandbox. It seemed at every turn at Shaw’s family came first. With so many family activities and perfect accommodations it was like taking a trip to a family cottage rather than a vacation resort.

Our meal at Shaw’s Hotel was truly spectacular. It featured all the best of the island prepared with care and attention to detail. Each dish was full of flavour and we devoured every last bite.While there were kids options available the boys wanted salmon so the kitchen split the order on two plates. It was perfect! The dining room overlooks the bay with beautiful views.
From the beginning of the meal we were amazed by the richness of flavour, fresh ingredients and beautiful styling. With Chef Matt Chandler cooking you are sure to fall in love with every dish. From the chowder to the mussels, to the salmon and the seafood stew it was an incredible meal. We finished off with delicious desserts and then took a leisurely stroll while the boys played at the playground. Taking in the beautiful smells from the kitchen and cool breeze it was a beautiful night.
