My fiance and I stayed here for Valentine's Day and we had a fantastic time. We live in the city, but wanted to "get away" for Valentine's Day. It was our first time staying in a bed and breakfast and I can definitely say we will be back for another stay-cation. Brent and Wanda are so warm and welcoming and... More

Lovely accommodations and superb hosts. Brent was wonderful and accommodating. Their home was warm and inviting. Truly an experience seeing all their artwork and collectables around their home. The room was large and with our GPS we had no issues finding their location. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and plentiful. My husband and I would gladly stay here again.

In Nova Scotia the B&B industry is largely unregulated so you never know what you will get. Generally Nova Scotia B&B's fall into two categories ----those that are run as small inns, and those that are peoples homes into which you are invited to spend an evening or two. With the latter you never feel quite comfortable enough to relax... More

After reading the previous review I can empathise with both parties as my wife and I were the couple who had booked the room (on January 25th!!). Sadly Brent had been let down by a software glitch and was between a rock and a hard place. The negative review is perhaps understandable but from my perspective it is a B&b... More

When we made the reservation with Brent (the owner) over the phone, he told us he had two rooms available and booked us into the Garden room using my credit card number to hold the reservation. When we showed up the next day to check in, he said he have NO ROOM for us because he CLAIMS someone already made... More

At Blue Forest Lane we always try to accomodate all of our gusest in a professional and courteous manner, however we do reserve the right to refuse guests. After 11 years in businees this is 1 of only 2 guests that we did not feel comfortable letting accommodate our B&B. We have to always be aware and thinking of our... More

This was our first stop on our 9 days in the Nova Scotia area. We had never stayed at a B&B before. The owners were very wonderful, the room was great, and the breakfast was nice. It was the most unique breakfast we had all week. It is someone's house but we never felt weird or uncomfortable. They usually serve... More

This was our first B&B experience and we absolutely loved it! The owners Brent and Wanda were absolutely lovely - very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. Our room (The Garden Room) was so amazingly cute and extremely spacious. We had breakfast in the dining room often - let's just say Brent is an... More

We stayed 2 nights in the Cottage Suite and it was fantastic. We have stayed in a lot of B&B's and this is probably the most beautiful house we have stayed in . It is located on a beautiful wooded lot probably 20 minutes from downtown Halifax and is easy to find from Brent's directions so you are not in... More

My wife and I stayed four nights at this B&B. Brent made us feel welcomed at his home. The room and ensuite were large, clean, and inviting. The B&B is in Bedford and is about a 20 minute drive into Halifax, however it was a very quiet area and very peaceful after a busy day. Brent cooked four very good... More

This is a great quiet location outside of Halifax. After a long day of riding the motorcycles around, we found the Garden Room to be peaceful and very comfortable. Brent made an amazing breakfast each morning, we skipped lunch! We will recommend it to all of our friends and hope others see this good review as well. We look forward... More
