I'm planning a very small wedding--under 20 people--and want to have it at an inn by the ocean. The focus of the day is meant to be a great dinner party for our families with interesting, creative food using local ingredients. We would prefer a seaside locale in PEI or NB, but would also consider Nova Scotia, although this is likely to be further away and guests would have to travel further. We are trying to be green.
From the research I've done, I've come up with this list:
Inn at Bay Fortune--PEI
Dalvay by the Sea--PEI
Liittle Shemogue Country Inn--NB
Rossmount Inn--St. Andrews, NB
Algonquin Hotel--St. Andrews, NB (not really an inn, but a relative recently said the food was excellent. I had brunch there once but I don't remember the food).
I would appreciate any comments about these places, or suggestions for others to try out. On Chowhound, I've seen a few positive comments about Rossmount Inn and Inn at Bay Fortune (a few, not because there are negative comments but because the Maritimes doesn't really loom large in the world of Chowhound) . I saw one positive mention of the Little Shemogue Country Inn, which might be my first choice, and wonder if anyone else has eaten there. The plan is to eat around before making a commitment, but we don't have the funds for too many fine dinners, so guidance is appreciated.
