The inn is at Smiths Cove a few miles out of Digby but about 10 minutes drive. It is in a quite rural location and is an elegant country house with spacious guest lounges on the ground floor. Our room was spacious and elegantly furnished and very comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent and our host extremely helpful. In fact he... More

Harbourview Inn was our introduction to Nova Scotia, and it could not have been better. The inn is comfortable, charming, and warmly welcoming. Darren worked with me to find a suitable room (my husband doesn't do flights of stairs if at all possible), and room #10 was perfect for us. We had a water view, lots of room, a tv... More

We stayed at the Harbourview Inn three years ago and were excited to return there on our recent trip to Nova Scotia. It is truly a special place run by Darren and Vance. The inn is beautiful and extremely comfortable. The rooms are lovely. We were again in Room #4 which has windows on two sides. We had breakfast in... More

We enjoyed our two nights stay in this inn. It’s pricey but it has its charm. My wife enjoyed the ~25m outdoor pool a lot as it was the selling point for her ;-) Great breakfast, great view off the Bay, the only thing I didn’t like is how soft the King size mattress was, not good at all if... More

We stayed at Harbourview Inn, in Smith’s Cove just outside of Digby in July, 2014, for 3 nights. We enjoyed this lovely old home, which is beautifully decorated and landscaped. Our room (#2) was very comfortable with a view of Fundy Bay. We were seated in a beautiful sun room for breakfast. A different, delicious breakfast was served each morning... More

Innkeepers Darren and Vance made our visit to the area unforgettable. We arrived "under the weather" and they made special arrangements for us upon arrival. Later, they gave us tips about the area and arranged for a whale trip for us. Through it all, we felt that they truly cared about us as persons, not customers.

Three of us shared the two bedroom suite. We enjoyed the comfortable rooms, outdoor gardens and pool, tasty brunch and overall hospitality. We especially appreciated the hosts mailing a toy my son forgot on site to us in Calgary - they really went the extra mile on that front!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Harbourview Inn. We experienced a 3 hour delay on the ferry over from Saint John to Digby so we were quite worn out when we arrived. It felt like coming home! Cozy atmosphere and friendly staff. The room was quaint and comfortable. Enjoyed learning some of the history. Loved sitting out on the verandah.... More
