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

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

Thank you for your complimentary review and we are glad that you did not mind sharing your room with the lady bugs. They move in for the winter and help out in our garden in the summer. Unfortunately they do not always leave on time.....we do our best to show them the door but there are always a couple that... 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
