At the Authentic Seacoast we offer our guests three unique Seacoast Stays. Unwind in our historic boutique DesBarres Manor Inn in the heart of town, our comfortable Distillery House steps away from our state-of-the-art Distillery & Brewery; or embrace a new kind of adventure with our glamping experience in our Yurts in the Vineyard. All three accommodations can be booked online here, and packages are available for each.

We’ve crafted these three accommodation experiences to suit the specific style and needs of every traveler, which we hope can create lasting memories during your explorations along the beautiful Eastern Shore. At the Authentic Seacoast, it is our passion to present Nova Scotia, as it’s meant to be.

Select your stay, and head our way!

Yurts in the Vineyard

Experience a truly one-of-a-kind oceanside adventure when you come glamping in our yurts in the vineyard. Greet your morning with 360 views of the Atlantic from your private deck, and stargaze in silence as the sun sets. Each Yurt is uniquely located throughout our vineyard, and comes fully equipped with basic cooking supplies, a BBQ and fire pit. It’s something you’ll never forget.

DesBarres Manor Inn

Our boutique, historic Inn dating back to 1837 and located in the heart of Guysborough, is rich in history and luxury. Relax in one of our ten stately guest rooms, detailed with antique furnishings, and allow our in-house Chef to treat and delight you with local seafood and delicacies when you dine with us. Your escape awaits.

Distillery House

Our Distillery House accommodation is ideal for the distillery-brewery hopping aficionado, for a stop along their travels up the coast. Steps away from our Authentic Seacoast Distillery & Brewery, where we craft our award-winning premium spirits and beer, such as Fortress Rum, this comfortable stay is the perfect pairing for anyone who wants a taste or tour.

Cancellation Policy (applicable to all our accommodations)
While we hope you won’t have a need to cancel your reservations, the following cancellation policy will apply should you need to.

Given the high demand and limited availability, reservations require a 100% deposit for accommodations which will be deducted at the time of reservation. Guests have up to two (2) weeks prior to their arrival date to cancel their reservation at their convenience, with no penalty except for a 10% administration fee. No deposits will be returned should a Guest cancel within 14 days prior to the arrival date.

However, deposits will be refunded in full if the reason for the cancellation is due to Authentic Seacoast’s convenience, expected or actual non-performance. This, however, does not apply in the event of a governmental agency imposing industry-wide performance restrictions over which Authentic Seacoast is not responsible, such as covid-19 related restrictions or other factors beyond our control, like extreme weather. In such cases, Guests who cancel within two weeks prior to their expected arrival may elect to either defer their deposit and reservation until such time as the agency removes such restrictions or obtain their deposit less a 10% administration fee.
