Very quiet and cozy room, with very comfortable bed and bedding, and an exceptional dining experience, both for supper and breakfast.
Overall very enjoyable. Good central location on the North Shore for exploring the area.
Jubilee cottage is a nice and well-run B&B that has many great features. The family that runs the B&B is friendly and helpful. The house is set in a shallow bay about 30 meters from the water. There is a small bench by the beach where you can admire the rising sun and take in the beauty of the seaside.
There is a small dock and a convenience store 2 min away with essentials like a small selection of wine and beer. Our room (blue heron) was pleasantly decorated and featured a small tv with cable, a window air conditioner, a wood stove, electrical base board, ceiling fan, bed (queen) and sofa bed. Wi-fi is available.
The bed was firm and comfortable with many pillows. The sofa bed was predictably less comfortable but still very acceptable. The bathroom was small but modern with a whirlpool bath. The common areas are nicely decorated and warm. There is a dinner offered at night ($42) – entrée, soup, main course, dessert and coffee. You can bring your own alcoholic beverage. The price might look high at first glance but the quality of the ingredients and cooking amply justify the price. Let’s say that having been to many high-priced restaurant across the world, I was very satisfied by this meal. Excellent value for the price. You can also dine without being a guest but reserve ahead. Ingredients were fresh (this was summer) and there is a great emphasis on organic local food and of course fish and seafood. The food offerings are compatible with gluten-free needs. The cuisine could be described as world fusion with asian-Caribbean-australian influences. The portions were perfect for me – I would describe them as mid-size canadian, large european and small for american visitors.
Very few downsides. Perhaps the room would be seen as small for people used to expensive north american hotels (of course, the sofa bed was using some of the room space). Bathroom was also small. This is a vintage house so you could see, here and there, signs of its age but you needed to really look for it.

This was our third time dinning at Jubilee Cottage. Friday night was “Now and Zen” Asian cuisine. The menu includes an appetizer, soup, 2 mains and dessert. Coffee and herbal teas as well. It is a BYO wine. Only $5 corking fee. Call ahead for reservations. Since it is a small family operation the menu is set for the evening. There are other themes on other nights. A great value at $42 each plus $5 corking fee if you bring wine.
We stayed at the Jubilee Cottage Inn for the first time in April 2014 and had a great time. Welcoming hosts, clean and quiet venue, nice area, great service and most of all, delicious food! The themed dinner that night was the Atlantica & Australis combo – excellent!
Lovely cosy comfortable rooms, full of charm. Our room had a fireplace and ensuite, and the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. The ambience in this period home is very soothing and the music wafting through the puts you at peace. The full breakfast is scrumptious and be sure to stay on for the dinners. Perfect place for your country getaway!
