A clean and cosy B&B, well located close to town. House was built in 1830, and our enthusiastic host, Brian, was rightfully proud of his home. From the back of the house, a wonderful view of the Minas basin. We enjoyed pleasant interactions at breakfast with other guests. A suggestion to expand breakfast sitting from fixed time of 8:30, would... More

We stayed one night at this well located B&B with the Bay in the distant background. Lots of fresh air and a nicely done garden. The breakfast was superb and carefully orchestrated. Located just outside the busy business district, downtown was close and walkable and the location quiet.

We sere in the Bay View room. Nice and spacious with a sitting area and our own bathroom. Comfortably slept 3 with the pull out sofa. While old, everything was still comfortable and nicely maintained. The owner (Brian) was very friendly and helpful, letting us use his fridge when needed. The only down side was breakfast was at a set... More

I stayed for 4 nights at Garden House with 2 friends so we had the house to ourselves. This inn consists of 3 rooms, 1 with private bath and 2 with a shared bath. It suited us perfectly! The house is almost 200 years old and furnished and maintained carefully. As an historic home, not everything is as you would... More

After friends recommended a stop in Wolfeville, I found the Garden House B&B in our guidebook and was lucky enough to get a room there. Brian is a warm and interesting host, who quickly makes you feel at home and part of the family. One of his other guests was about to open a bottle of local wine, so we... More

The best welcome we've ever had! Brian provided us with great information on Wolfville and its surrounding area. With lots of short hiking trails around as well as on the dyke, Wolfville provides more that the average town. This house in quirky in design which gave it great character. Our only disappointment is that we had only booked one night.... More

We stayed our first night ever in Nova Scotia at the Garden House B&B in Wolfville. What a way to be welcomed into a new area. We picked this B & B through reviews in Tripadvisor and they were spot on! Brian, the owner, was fantastic. From his great smile, to his tips on where to enjoy the great outdoors,... More

Stayed at the Garden House for just one night. The rooms are charming (not as much "twee" as some b&bs). The larger queen has a nice view from the window. We wished that we had bought a bottle of wine with us to sit out in the pretty garden. Brian and Lisa were very helpful hosts - directing us and... More

We were lucky to be guests at this B and B. It was by chance that we met a former guest while in Truro who steered us to Wolfville and the Garden B and B that is within a 1930's house. Brian and Lisa the hosts were very friendly and extremely helpful in planning our two days around the area.... More

This place is not the glitziest or the most beautiful B&B i have ever stayed in but the fact that we were made to feel so welcome, sent out with information about Wolfville (and a voucher for a free drink from one of the local pubs!) got back from supper and put our feet up in front of the TV...
