My husband, 2 daughters and I stayed there 2 years ago and had such a wonderful time we still talk about it and hope to go back. The main house is very quaint, welcoming, interesting, beautiful...I could go on. Our room had a bathroom and two sleeping areas and was very comfortable. The breakfast served was excellent and the service... More

This is a good mid level property. During the six weeks we spent in Canada/U.S we stayed in 14 such properties. Reviewers that gush 'Five star everything' need to travel more widely. We stayed in several officially rated 5 star properties and this was not one of them. However, we really liked the property and would recommend it to anyone... More

Given the reviews we felt it was not quite up to No.1 status. I understand that the owners perhaps wish to keep to traditional 'Inn' style decor but although the lobby & sitting areas are warm & welcoming, the annex bedrooms are somewhat dated (see attached photos). To strike a balance, might it be an idea for rooms in the... More

Warm and friendly substantial Inn a few miles from downtown Digby. Darren was extremely friendly and helpful and went the extra mile to accommodate an enforced change of date at the last minute. 'No problem' he said.

We have stayed at the Inn on two previous occasions but always stayed in the Winchester House. This trip we stayed in the main Inn. I love everything about this place. It's location, the view, the rooms, the food, the staff and Darren and Vance. They are such sticklers for detail; nothing at all is left to chance. They even... More

Charm,comfort, helpful and friendly staff, yummy food, good walks. Loved #7, it all felt like home! Peaceful, beautiful. View of water. Bar in lobby. They do laundry which is terrific for drivers circumnavigating Nova Scotia!

We stayed for two nights in Suite 20 in Winchester House. This was spacious and quiet, with a peaceful outlook from the small terrace outside the door. The bed was large and comfortable. It was a short walk to the breakfast room in the main house. The breakfast was plentiful, with good variety. The young staff ladies assisting at breakfast... More

I booked the wrong dates and didn't realize it until we were past the cancellation period. Vance promised to try and resell our room and drop all charges to our credit card. And then he did it! I wish I could give them more than 5 stars for helping us out when they were under no obligation to do so!... More

We stayed here two nights in a room with king sized bed. We loved the big room and it was nice having a small fridge. The property itself is gorgeous to walk around. Breakfasts were served buffet style but the food was fresh and excellent quality.

My second stay here and it still feels warm and welcoming. Darren is the perfect host with a good sense of humor. The inn is in a quiet location but very close to Digby and the Annapolis Valley. Rooms are spacious and wel equiped. Breakfast is nice with enough choice and always something warm.
