We stayed 4 nights here - close to Halifax, Peggys Cove and right on the water. Great info as Henk used to work at a visitors info place - Great breakfast and felt very welcome! Lots of good info. We were always asked how are day away went and they both were very interested in what we had seen -... More

This B&B is conveniently located 40min from Halifax and just 10min from Peggy's Cove. It offers exceptional value in the expensive Halifax region with gracious hosts, spotlessly clean accommodation and a wonderful hot and cold breakfast buffet ... get there before this couple retires!

Henk and Doreen are perfect hosts. They gave us a warm welcome. The room was immaculate as was our private bath and the entire home. We stayed three days, and we wish we could have stayed longer. Doreen spent time with us each day detailing the ins and outs of the area. She made several suggestions on places to go;... More

We are so very fortunate to have been able to spend three nights with Doreen and Henk! It was like spending time with long lost family members :-) we were welcomed with a friendly and warm greeting, followed by blissfully comfortable accommodations and well we could not begin to accurately describe the food, simply delicious and different, every morning. Hopefully... More

The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast delicious. It was also nice visiting with Doreen and Henk, the innkeepers. We arrived late, and very hungry, and Doreen was nice enough to phone an area restaurant and tell them we were coming There is also a very nice outdoor area complete with a swing facing the bay.

Doreen and Henk did a great job of making my wife and I feel at home. We arrived late and they greated us with open arms. The property has a great location just off the water and is very pretty. The house and rooms were spotless and well equipped. Doreen cooked as fantastic breakfast fit for a king. The bed... More

we stayed for a few nights in the suite on the top floor and had a wonderfully relaxing time. Spacious bedroom, bath and living room, and spotlessly clean. The only thing interrupting your sleep could be the traffic noise from a fairly busy street right next to the property. Breakfast was plentiful and Doreen and Henk make you feel welcomed.... More

Stayed one night and a good night it was. The sheets were the best we slept on in 9 nights in Nova Scotia. Doreen cooked a very healthy, tasty breakfast and there was plenty. On a bay but you did have to go outside to really see the view and we got there on a damp, cool night so missed... More

I had the pleasure of an overnight stay at The Flying Dutchman B&B this past weekend. I was in Halifax for business and did not wish to stay at a hotel so I found this perfect B&B. Minutes from Peggy's cove and just 20 mins. from my morning appointment in Halifax, I made the right choice! Comfortable room/bed and perhaps... More

We visited Flying Dutchman a couple of years ago in the summer, stayed for two nights and enjoyed both the stay there and the exploration of the area. Doreen and Henk are wonderful hosts and Doreen is a topnotch cook. We had hoped to enjoy breakfast on the dock, but alas it was too cool and foggy. However, the sunny... More
