This is by far the most pleasant stay my husband and I have ever had! We traveled to Nova Scotia in late June and spent 5 glorious days at Blockhouse Hill. Fred and Marion saw to every little detail from beautiful delicious breakfasts (with adorable homemade heart-shaped muffins and the most amazing homemade granola and peach jam I have ever... More

Together with two friends we spend part of our honeymoon in this charming B&B. Right from the beginning we felt very welcome by the personal and warm way Marion and Fred open their home to guests. They care about every little detail to make sure they have the most wonderful stay. Breakfast was delicious, Marion's blueberry pancakes are the best... More

I would highly recommend the Blockhouse Hill Bed & Breakfast. Fred and Marion are wonderful hosts and made my stay feel like "home away from home". My room was very clean and comfortable, and I started off the day with a wonderful breakfast each morning. Fred and Marion are very helpful at pointing out places of interests and restaurants to...

My daughter and I stayed for two nights at this delightful B & B. The hosts (Marion & Fred) are warm, kind people who clearly go the extra distance to ensure that their guests have everything they need for a comfortable stay. Our rooms were well furnished, lovely, clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and more than ample... More

Marion and Fred are the pleasant hosts of the Blockhouse Hill B & B, and it's extremely comfortable. The room was spacious and neat as a pin, and the bed was comfy. Marion's breakfast was delicious, and Fred delivered excellent service. This is a great spot to stay if you're visiting the Halifax area.

We were 2 weary travellers just arrived from the UK and could not have asked for a better welcome from Fred as we arrived late at night. Our room was perfect, the bed super comfy and the sitting room with tea/coffee facilities was a godsend. Waking up to Marion's delicious homemade breakfast...granola, muffins, bread, jam, stuffed French toast to die... More

We stayed at Fred and Marion's for the first and last nights of our trip to the Maritimes. We could not have asked for more, every comfort and need was accommodated. We really enjoyed getting to know Fred and Marion, and listen to Fred's wonderful stories. After a long flight to Halifax, Fred made sure that we had coffee and... More

We started off our tour of NS and PEI by staying 2 nights at the Blockhouse Hill. Fred and Marion were excellent hosts, so helpful and hospitable. We had the four poster bed room at the front and as it is a quiet residential road we slept like logs! Every comfort was provided not only in the room, but also... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Fred and Marion. We had a comfortable bed in a large room, fresh coffee was available at 7:00, and Marion's homemade breakfast was amazing. Fred gave us great directions and suggestions to enjoy Canada Day celebrations. The ferry is only a short walk from their home. Proud Grandpa Fred shared some stories about his... More
