We felt that this Inn was a little bit like a factory - tons of guests and very little personalized attention except for at check-in where the owner proudly touts his tripadvisor rating. The rooms were dated and the bed was ok (I believe it was a double rather than the queens and kings other B&Bs/inns in the region tend... More

We stayed at the hotel for one night on our way to Tiverton. Darren welcomed us and gave us good tips for the dinner in town. The place is quiet and relaxing. Breakfast with home made jams was simply perfect. Definitely recommended

I would not trade this beautiful, historic inn for any five-star hotel. We had stayed here years ago, so on this trip back to the Maritimes we went out of our way to stay here again. It is not just a place to stay, it is an experience. Darren, Paul and all the staff go out of their way to... More

Once again we visited the Harbourview Inn on our annual vacation. After our vacation was over I thought about the highlights and the Harbourview was definitely one of them. Darren and Vance and their superior hospitality along with the great staff, beautiful and very clean rooms, all set in an amazing location, not to mention Rosie (the Inn mascot) and... More

We stayed at the Harbourview Inn on our way to see the whales in Tiverton. We are so glad we did. It was close to Digby, but far enough away to enjoy the quiet and tranquillity of the grounds. We booked a suite as our family of 4 were travelling and both rooms were spotless, nicely decorated and very cosy.... More

What a great way to end our first visit to N.S.! A beautiful setting, relaxing, comfortable, walking distance to the beach, pet friendly, convenient to Digby and its restaurants, stores, St John Ferry. It was a quiet atmosphere in which to regroup and think about the five days we had spent on the island. Extra linens were brought to our... More

Harvey family had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed their stay at this tremendous Inn. Staff were really friendly and made us feel right at home. Exceptional breakfasts were served by excellent staff. Just loved our rooms too! Looking forward to our next stay!!!!

This location, although not easy to find-had to ask the local police we ran into, is well worth a stay. Convenient to the Digby, Nova Scotia area. Staff was very helpful. Beautiful, colorful and restful location.

We chose the inn from web site location and reviews. We stayed in a queen suite and glad we did. Quiet, and a lovely country location. Hosts were very nice, and breakfasts were very good. We are a bit awsy from town but the quiet in the evening is nice. the only recommendation i would make is that the host... More

Stayed in the Winchester House early May . Darren gave us a warm welcome & even left breakfast in the fridge for us as Inn wasn't opened for the season yet . This place was spotless . We do a lot of travelling & by far this has to be the cleanest place we have stayed in . Bed comfortable... More
