Greeted by a smiling innkeeper who gives us a different room because we had to leave early to catch the ferry and cross the Bay of Fundy, Our room was a small suite which was very thoughtful of him. Would loved to have stayed here longer as the place was warm and inviting and the grounds looked wonderful, looking out... More

Have stayed at inn many times and have always had a great experience. Vance and Darren ,the inn keepers are friendly and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable and will even help you make reservations for local restaurants and excursions. The rooms have all the charm you would expect of a historic country inn and are... More

Had a great time visiting friends at the Harbourview. Room was cozy and the view of the basin from our view was an added benefit. Breakfast was nice and the added entertainment from a staff member was an unexpected benefit. Took whale watching tour at the last minute and absolutely loved it. The weather cooperated and saw both whales and... More

This was by the best B&B we stayed in while touring Nova Scotia. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was very well appointed, clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed a good breakfast each morning. Our stay here has made us consider coming back to NS again, from the UK

Emailed the hotel regarding their adventure weekend for my husbands 40th birthdays and I could not have asked for better service! I needed some changes to the package which the wonderful Darren helped with and arranged with no issue (or none that he let on!) Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed and shown to our suite which was immaculate (flowery... More

We arrived around 9pm and the inn keeper was very welcoming and showed us to our room which was in an annex to the Inn. Room was very clean but nothing special décor-wise really. Very homey/country. Beds were okay. Breakfast was fine (scrambled eggs, bacon one morning and poached eggs, sausage the next, and just enough. Waitress was a little... More

Great place to stay after you take the ferry from St. John to Digby and before you head across Nova Scotia. The owners were wonderful, lending us their own bikes to ride. And who knew that Digby was the scallop capital of the WORLD? Loved sitting on the porch sipping tea and reading.

We booked this because they offered a whale watching package, and we're very glad we did. We stayed in a suite which, despite being close to a road, was quiet and its deck was full of sunshine. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the bathroom was lovely. The breakfasts were good and the staff very friendly. I had tried to... More

This is a wonderful old inn located on in a park-like setting just outside of Digby. We only stayed two nights, but this seems like a place one could go for a much longer relaxing get away. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The breakfasts are outstanding and staff are there to serve coffee or whatever you forgot from... More
