Brenda has a diploma in Food Technology and has offered her hand to the wonderful Menu presented at the Inn, as well as being an accomplished artist. The Inn will be a showcase of her art so drop in and take a tour today.

About the Location

Named for the infamous pirate Peter Easton, the name Happy Adventure supposedly resulted from a successful outing of seeking and receiving shelter in the community’s harbour.


This quiet community was permanently settled in 1868. The first recorded settlement was as early as 1710, with 2010 marking its 300th anniversary.

There is also a nice picnic area (Little Sandy Cove)  and beach where, if the tide is low, you can dig for clams, known locally as “cocks and hens”. Happy Adventure also has great vantage points for whale watching or just admiring the surrounding scenery. From the Inn you can take a 15 minute walk in the country to the beautiful white sandy beaches of Sandy Cove
