Our entire family from Quebec stayed here during our wedding weekend. Our family pretty well took over the B&B (with the exception of one room!). The staff was amazing and made sure all of our family felt comfortable. They made sure to keep us updated on rooms and even let some of our family into their rooms early to ensure... More

We so enjoyed our 3 days at the Gingerbread House. Alan and Libby were fantastic hosts. Alan not only makes great breakfasts he truly has a passion for it. We stayed in the Cornwallis room and the Annapolis room and they were both great rooms. We truly liked having my own entrance to my room. Definitely going back and will... More

So peaceful and quaint and quiet and totally relaxing. We stayed in the marvelous Gaspereau Suite with the giant hot tub. The hot tub is in the room which is huge and is close to the bed but if you do your research you should realize this before you go and NOT complain about the low rumbling of the pumps... More

Stayed here in early June 2015. The accommodation is very nice. Our room had its own private entrance and ensuite. Breakfast was very nice and presented very professionally. It was nice to have accommodation with a private entrance so you could come and go as you pleased without worrying about disturbing other guests or the host.

Just returned to Maine after spending two wonderful days in Wolfville. We have stayed at the Gingerbread House Inn 4 times in the past two years. The first time was on our 25th wedding anniversary, the last three because our daughter was considering Acadia University for her post-secondary education. Love the rooms, love the helpful owners who have always gone... More

We stayed at the Gingerbread House Inn one night only but wish it could have been longer. We loved our room (Victorian) and especially appreciated the comfortable beds. In fact, we both had the best night's sleep in a long time. The room was clean and very quiet. The owner had turned the heat up for us before we arrived... More

Had a great stay. The food and service was lovely. We found the hosts to be very accommodating. In fact, they even waited for us when we let them know we were going to be late. This was our second visit and we'll stay again. Comfy king sized bed and nice hot tub.

The owners no longer want to run this place (it is up for sale). Beds are sagging and breakfast hours are very limited and inflexible. Definitely does not live up to the price they charge. This place gives gingerbread a bad name.

Yes, we are for sale. No, we have not changed our attitude or response as we always try to welcome and assist guests as much as we can. We do not have any saggy beds and get compliments all the time for a good nights rest. Like all places, breakfast times are set - we serve between 8.15 and 9am... More

We stayed one night recently for our anniversary. The owner was absolutely fantastic, recommended some wonderful restaurants and was super friendly and accommodating. The room was great, hot tub was clean and relaxing. We were most impressed with the service however, the owner went above and beyond. I forgot an important item in the room and we live over an...

We stayed there for Valentine's day. The room was ok, the decorating was a bit dated, nice hot tub, but the room smelled very strongly of chlorine and the hot tub made noise that kept us awake for most of the night. There was a blizzard over night that led into the next morning and didn't slow until supper time.... More
