My family rented the entire place for a two night stay. The Barnwood Inn had a special place in our hearts as it was our grandparents homestead at one time. Our hosts Ginny and Gary were very thoughtful, friendly and made our stay memorable. The rooms all have bathrooms and are very clean, with comfortable beds and comfy linens. The... More

My sisters and brother stayed at the Barnwood Inn for two nights during our family visit. Ginny and Gary were great host and the rooms and breakfasts were great. We love this house, since is was our grandparents homestead and where we lived for the first few years of our lives. It was truly great visiting the homestead again after... More

We enjoyed a comfortable, clean room; great breakfasts; and interesting, friendly, helpful hosts. We could not have asked for a more pleasant stay: a first rate B and B. There are plenty of reasons to visit Bear River. Staying with Ginny and Gary would have to be near the top of the list.

On very short notice my family needed a place to stay in Bear River. The hosts at the Barnwod Inn were kind enough to accommodate our late night arrival and have a lovely room ready for us. The room was clean and comfortable and we slept well with our two little ones in tow. Ginny was thoughtful enough to leave... More

This is our second time at Barnwood Inn, and would definitely return. Ginny and Gary Hurlock run a very classy operation in Bear River, and I would recommend the Ash Room, which is their largest. It has a queen and a single, with a good size 3-pc bath (corner shower). All of the rooms appear to have a ceiling fan,... More

We really enjoyed our stay, Thank you so much Ginny, Emily and Gary. We look forward to returning next year and touring more of the area. While being in Digby during the Whaft Rat Rally was fun to be a part of, coming back to the B & B was so relaxing. Thanks so much. Judy & Earl Doucette

Having spent a big part of my childhood around Bear River, it was time to come back for a Cherry Carnival in 2011. The Barnwood Inn offers a terrific place to put your head down, have a lovely breakfast (something different each day) and to reconnect with a very special part of the NS countryside. Thanks to Gary and Ginny... More

A gem of a B&B. Charming house in a beautiful flowered setting. Ginny and Gary are wonderful hosts. Rooms are decorated beautifully and are immaculate. We ended our Nova Scotia visit here and it was perfect.

On my ride from Halifax to Salmon River I found myself dead tired in Bear River and fortunately was directed to Barnwood Inn B&B, overlooking the beautiful Bear River Valley, on a quiet road. I had a very good sleep in a comfortable room, and set off the next morning restored, after a good breakfast that was set for me... More

We would like to thank our wonderful hosts for a lovely relaxing "home away from home" experience during our time at the Barnwood Inn in July. (Sorry it's taken so long to write.) It was great to be able to relax, unwind and enjoy your little pocket of Nova Scotia. We hope to return someday.

Dear Aussies, Thanks for your review and we're thrilled that you enjoyed your stay with us. It would be lovely to see you back here at some time in the future. The children were as good as gold and we couldn't have asked for nicer guests. You're always welcome here. Best regards, Ginny More
