The Evangeline Inn and Motel is located just off Exit 10 from Hwy 101 as you head in to Wolfville. It is ideally located to be your base of operations as you explore the many attractions in the area.
Within a 10km radius you can reach the Just Us Coffeehouse and Museum, the Grand Pré National Historic Site, and five wineries, including Luckett Vineyards, L’Acadie Vineyards, Gaspereau Vineyards,
Muir Murray Estate Winery and Domaine de Grand Pré Vineyards.
The inn is a former home of Prime Minister Robert Borden. We stayed in the King-sized suite in the inn. It’s a cozy room with antique furniture, a king-sized bed and claw-foot bathtub. Basically, exactly what you’d want to find in an inn.
The pool area was on the small side but definitely decent for a motel. One of the cool features is the fireplace next to the pool. One of the less-cool features is the 9 pm pool closure. Your stay includes breakfast at the café. We recommend the omelet. It’s a good size and loaded with ham, peppers and mushrooms.
We also tried the café for dinner the night of our stay. The selection is not huge, and it is mostly basic options such as sandwiches, but the food is good, the portions are big and the prices are low. They also skip the flour in their fish cakes, something Gillian was really happy about.
The rooms are comfortable and reasonably priced in the $100-$140 (tax included!) range.
