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

Our stay was brief, but delightful. Darren could not have been more helpful, and packed us a healthy breakfast to take on the ferry as we were leaving quite early in the am. A short, lovely walk to the beach.

We stayed here in July this year. The proprietor, Vance, was so friendly and helpful - our luggage had got lost in Heathrow and Air Canada were determined to get it to us. We waited up as long as we could and awoke at 1.30am to hear voices= Vance dealing with our luggage. The Inn itself is in a lovely... More

Stayed recently at this Inn in a 2-bedroom suite. Totally pleased with everything - the rooms were spacious, clean, comfy beds, extra pillows and excellent wi-fi. Breakfast was superb. Must mention the strawberries at brecky were just delicious! Darren and Vance are just so nice and personable, as all the staff we came in contact with. The grounds are beautiful... More

My husband and I rented one of their suites and were not disappointed. I am a walker and was able to walk along the cove at low tide. There is also a rail trail that runs through the property allowing miles of beautiful walking. Breakfasts were delicious and welcoming. I highly recommend the Inn.

My husband and I stayed at the Harbourview July 11 and 12, 2014. We booked the 2 nights with whale watch package and were not disappointed. The Inn is lovely and Darren was a pleasure to speak with. He and his partner take great pride in their establishment and it shows. Darren plays "bartender" which is great for a nice... More

This is reminiscent of an old world resort - grand old house with amenities. There is a pool, beach, tennis court, bicycles in a quiet country setting just outside Digby. Darren setup a whale watching charter for us and was accommodating to change it AND send the voucher to the vendor by fax as we hadn't checked in yet. Good... More

Our stay here was very brief as we caught the early morning ferry to St John's. We were made very welcome, our hosts gave us a ground floor room, so nobody would be disturbed by our early exit. Provided a welcome packed breakfast for the ferry. We, also, enjoyed a pleasant glass of wine in a very comfortable reception area.... More
