This B&B is second to none. We visited with two families of 4, and booked all three rooms, so we had the whole place to ourselves. The heritage home was furnished with lots of antiques which matched the century home, and the interior was decorated in a welcoming Maritime style. The rooms and facilities were clean and tidy. The host... More

The B&B is in a beautifully restored and decorated old captain's house. Our room (the Blue room) was comfortable, clean and quiet. I could go on about the house (better than most B&Bs), but what really impressed us about our stay was the proprietor. He's a friendly, interesting guy and an excellent ambassador for the local area and we thoroughly... More

Our family stayed at this B&B as part of our tidal bore rafting adventure. We were so pleased to be able to stay at a very special farm house so close to the River Runners. The proprietors are very warm and welcoming. The house is perfectly clean and large. My husband and I slept in he Blue room which has... More

We stayed for two nights at the Tidal Life Guesthouse. We were so impressed with this amazing heritage home, the gourmet breakfast, the property and getting to know our hosts...well travelled story tellers. Bing's eatery is a must for healthy, delicious food choices....Saturday entertainment was a delight. We loved the history, people, architecture and warmth of the village. Beautiful countryside...

What a fun place to stay! Your hosts will charm you with the history of the house, their dogs, their art and of course the wonderful breakfast. The room and bathroom were very clean and had everything we needed. The living room had all sorts of games and books. Make sure you eat at Bing's at least once during your... More

We spent just one night here and loved this wonderfully charming, historic house with quirky touches and art everywhere. We met Kelly at his restaurant and then let ourselves in to the house. Louis and Armstrong (Kelly's dogs) stole our hearts & that was before Kelly told us how he had rescued them both!! We used the back deck and... More

there was lots to like---a large room, modern bathroom, art on every inch of wallspace, books galore to browse, tasty breakfast, accommodating hosts. Don't expect to find much to do in Maitland, however, and there was only one restaurant, which was fine. We stayed here because it was close to our river rafting excursion the next day. If you want... More

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of days after a seven day whirlwind tour of Cape Breton Island in a 21 foot motor home. By then we needed some R&R and space. This place definitely fit the bill. After only an hour or two we had amorphisized with the house. Its a 150 year old Farm house... More
