We stayed one night at the Foley House Inn on our way from Cape Breton to Brier Island in order to do tidal bore rafting. We arrived late in the day and checked out prior to our 7AM rafting trip. The rooms were comfortable (we had 2 - one for my wife and I and another for my 2 teenage... More

We stayed in "The Suite" after tidal bore rafting in Maitland. This room is perfect for families as it has 1 double bed plus two singles. The only complaint that I would have about the room is that the television is on the side with the two children's beds. It would have been nice to be able to watch tv... More

Joan and John are excellent hosts and their home is very comfortable. Our bed was oh so comfy and we slept well in spite of the winds preceding the impending hurricane Arthur. The breakfast was great and we particularly enjoyed the home baking.

Travelling with friends we spent one night here using this as base to see the tidal bore. Originally booking family unit but as this unit does not have privacy between bedrooms, we exchanged for two separate bedrooms with ensuites. Very comfortable bedding. Owners were not home when we got there but a friend assisted us. Please be aware there is... More

Couldn't have asked for anything more at the Foley House bed and breakfast. So much to see and do nearby and we loved all the surrounding area. The Inn was spotless, service excellent and the food was great. Joan and John were excellent hosts. Will be recommending this place to all of my friends.

We spent two nights with Joan & Jack in their very comfortable Inn. The room was very attractive, very clean and homey. Breakfast was cooked to order and delicious, Joan's homemade muffins were a special treat. We felt very much at home and would definitely recommend this Inn. Good location within the village and close to the Bay of Fundy.... More

We spent 2 nights here. A clean inn decorated using a cute beach theme. Beds were so comfortable--not too hard, not too soft, just right. Breakfast was delicious and the dining room was set up like a diner with individual tables as opposed to the large single dining room tables that we were accustomed to at other b&bs. Joan and...

We stayed here one night as it was close to the tidal bore rafting I had booked for the following day. We were well looked after by Joan and John and they made us feel welcome. We arrived just before the only restaurant nearby closed so Joan advised us to go straight there and let them know we were coming.

We arrived, exhausted, after a long drive in the pouring rain to learn that the only restaurant in town was not open. Joan, who was entertaining friends from out of town, graciously offered to toss some extra veggies into the stir-fry she was preparing to save us a trip to Truro. Priceless! She and John also persuaded my reluctant spouse... More
