This is a beautiful inn in a beautiful setting, but above all was the care taken by the friendly and well-travelled hosts to help us make the most of our stay in the area, from recommending a good restaurant (and booking a table) to pointing out local galleries and landmarks, then sitting with us after these adventures to provide more...

I was traveling with my parents and stayed here for two nights. First the room; gorgeous and semi private - my parents practically had their own room within our room. We arrived a few days after they opened for the season so we came across one or two bugs (beetles that snuck in). Nothing too unexpected since it is an... More

Wonderful place tucked in off the highway. In the evening we sat with other guests to enjoy a dram of scotch on the screened porch. Being the first to rise in the morning, the hosts brought steaming hot coffee to the porch as I enjoyed the sunrise. Delicious breakfasts. The hosts were very welcoming, helpful and we're always there to... More

The hosts were very friendly and were helpful with tourist information. The rooms were very welcoming and comfortable. They were well maintained and clean. The delicious breakfasts were buffet style and Irene kept everything topped off. If we have the opportunity to visit the area again, we will definitely stay there.

We stayed in suite 20 of the Winchester. It was sumptuous, private, large, clean, and just what I needed. The queen bed was comfortable, the bathroom was large with an air jet tub that I thoroughly enjoyed, and the separate seating area was perfect for my spouse who likes to stay up late to watch tv. Breakfast was varied with... More

The host was very pleasant and welcoming. Had a double room which was very clean however the decor was quite dated. There was also a bit of a musty smell in the room. The towels in the bathroom were stained and very rough (like sandpaper). I found it over priced compared to other B&Bs I have stayed at.

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
