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

We stayed at the Harbourview Inn on a drab, rainy grey day, so we did not enjoy the tennis courts or pool, though the beautiful flowers on he grounds and the lovely view were enjoyable even then, as was the lovely breakfast of poached eggs, Canadian bacon, and toast. The room was comfortable and spacious.

We took the ferry across the Bay of Fundy and stayed at the Harbourview Inn. It is in a beautiful location that looks out at the water. We had a room with two bedrooms which was perfect for our family of five. They set up a cot for us in the one bedroom. Each morning we had a lovely breakfast... More

We were delighted with our stay at Harbourview. Despite being a lovely old Victorian home, the hotel has all the modern amenities you could want. Breakfast was lovely including taste homemade jams that the owners made. The owners were so pleasant and helpful, The made the reservations for us at the whale watching outfit. And when on the last day,... More

We stayed here for a night immediately prior to Arthur, and were treated wonderfully by Darren and Vance. Their selections for local restaurants were excellent, as was their recommendation for visiting Bear River. The buffet-style breakfast allowed us to be selective in both what and how much we ate. The room was charmingly decorated, clean and air-conditioned, while the common... More

Our party of four stayed here in fall 2013. A beautifully decorated old home - nicely appointed rooms with private baths. The proprietors were very friendly and helpful - recommended a restaurant that we liked so much we went back the next day! We walked down to the water thru an ancient cemetery - took lots of pictures by the... More

This Inn is very cozy with wallpaper on its wall and matching carpet. It has antique furniture which adds to its decor. A/C and a washroom in each room. We had the King size bed, which is very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Excellent Breakfast in the am. The Inn and the grounds outside are very clean,... More

My mother and two sisters and I stayed at the Harboueview inn after post tropical Arthur went through. We arrived when there wasn't any power. Darrin and Vance had a beautiful buffet breakfast, hot running water and a generator! Our rooms were clean and ready for our arrival. Their staff was courteous and very friendly. I left a jacket in... More

As we sat in the lobby enjoying a drink in a totally comfortable and relaxing setting we were contemplating how many years we have staying at the Harbourview and I think it's the better part of 10 years. If that doesn't convince you this is a great place let me tell you about the owners Darren & Vance, they are... More
