To sit down to breakfast in a beautiful old home, be served by the most gracious hostess and be treated to maple syrup that came from the maple trees that you can see outside through the windows is just heaven. Mary's sense of fun and her sharp wit, along with her local knowledge, along with the most comfortable bed and... More

We booked our stay at the Carwarden (pronounced "Carden") Inn without ever having been there . . . it was charming. Our hostess met us in the leafy yard and made us feel right at home. She invited us to take our glass of wine to the front veranda which overlooked miles of farmland--so very peaceful and beautiful. Our room... More

We have a long term sub let for the summer in nearby Wolfville, and were enjoying an evening drive, partly to get away from the noise of a generator across the street ( result of Hurricane Arthur taking out an electric box- happily now resolved). As we passed this beautiful home, my husband popped that question. Luckily Mary had a... More

This is a traditional B&B in a peacefully serene area just off the beaten path. A Heritage property featuring spacious high ceilings, comfortable rooms, antiques and wide veranda with beautiful pastoral views. The hostess is a gem that must not be missed. Breakfast was unbelievable.

Recently my wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the beautiful Carwarden Bed and Breakfast in Port Williams Nova Scotia. The historic house is located in a rural area just outside the small town of Port Williams, which, in turn, is a ten minute drive from the university town of Wolfville. As would be expected, a car is... More

We stumbled across this place at the last minute and spent one night as we travelled through Port Williams. What a find. The house itself is beautiful, the bed was super comfy (we were in the Cortland Room) and the room had all the creature comforts but the best thing about this accommodation was the host, Mary. She was so... More

We stayed at Carwarden two evenings and truly enjoyed our stay and talks with Mary about life in general and what to do to enjoy your stay in the area.. She reminded us so much of my husband's Grandmother with her boundless energy, wonderful cooking and baking and genuine desire that you will enjoy your stay. Mary is amazing! The... More

My husband, a visiting friend from Quebec and myself wanted to spend time in the Wolfeville area visiting wineries, etc. and decided the best way to do it was to stay over-night. Perusing the B&B's in the area, I was taken with the web-site for Carwarden so booked two rooms, en suite for the night. What a find! The home... More

This is a beautiful historic house that has been lovingly maintained and furnished with period furniture. Mary is a wonderful hostess. We had originally intended to get up, eat and move on and ended up 2 hours behind schedule because we were enjoying our chat with Mary! Spacious rooms, excellent breakfast! I hope to return!

When we planned a trip to the Annapolis Valley with friends, we thought we should try something new, but, as luck would have it, we gravitated back to our favourite, the Carwarden, with gracious host, Mary. She welcomed us as long-lost family (it has been four years!) and welcomed our traveling companions to join us for an afternoon cocktail (they... More
