About Us


Inspired by our love of travel, we started the marmalade motel with one goal in mind: create a high-quality, memorable stay that doesn't come with a 5-star price tag. 

We invite you to travel the road less travelled and explore the best that nature has to offer along the Eastern Shore.  With hiking, kayaking, fishing or simple relaxation, you're bound to find the undiscovered treasure of Nova Scotia.

A Room with a View

Every room has a stunning ocean view.

Our little motel only has 8 guest rooms. You'll enjoy the peace and quiet of the area. 


Every room at the marmalade motel features a private balcony overlooking the ocean. The perfect place to watch the sun set, with your favourite drink in hand. 

Rooms are fully renovated and decorated in a modern-BoHo decor. With clean, contemporary designs that make the most of the beauty that surrounds us. 


Pet Friendly

Bring your fur friends and babies. We are a pet friendly motel. An additional $15 per room night will be charged.

No Smoking

The entire motel grounds and all rooms are non-smoking (of any kind, even the whacky kind!) 

Kayak, Paddle Board or Canoe

Bring your favourite water craft with you. Only steps away is a beautiful rocky beach to set out and explore the area by water. If you need to arrange overnight storage for your gear, please let us know. We can accommodate on a first come first serve basis.
