We very much enjoyed our 2 night stay at Old Riverside Lodge. We had the River Room and were able to sleep with the windows open and hear the babbling river. Everything was clean, well tended and nicely decorated. The hosts were knowledgeable about the area and very friendly. Not having the bathroom en suite was no problem at all.... More

While traveling through Nova Scoria on a recent long weekend with friends we book a night at this B & B. Alf & Connie were the most charming host. The grounds were beautiful and so peaceful. Breakfast of blueberry pancakes and all the trimmings was so yummy. Alf even made homemade walking sticks for all the guests to enjoy and... More

We were on a "genealogy tour" and wanted a B&B in the center of one of our search areas. Alf & Connie were very welcoming and helpful in our research. The Lodge setting is wonderfully landscaped with a great view. The rooms are immaculate, warm and very comfortable. The wifi was necessary for our research and much appreciated. Breakfast was...

I spent 2 delightful nights with Connie and Alf last weekend. They are delightful hosts and I truly felt at home. Breakfast exceeded my expectations, my room was lovely (I chose the River Room), and all guest spaces were perfect. They have done an amazing job restoring the lodge. It is very large, and yet maintains a cozy, classic charm.... More

The home is located in a quiet setting along a beautiful section of river valley, and there are some nice hiking trails on the property and nearby. Our room was very large, clean, and comfortable and adjoined a nice... More

This place is well worth a visit, even if just to admire the restoration of the lodge, originally dating back to the 1860's. Extremely quiet location (last property on a dead end road) with a beautiful river winding past it's doors. The hosts went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable. Very friendly and accommodating. Tasty breakfasts served... More

My husband and I were making a return trip along the Eastern Shore toward Halifax from Charlos Cove and stayed one night (Sept 1, 2014) at the Old Riverside Lodge. This heritage home was truly exceptional in terms of decor, updates, ambience, breakfast quality, and the riverside setting on which it is located. Alfred and Connie Ellis were wonderfully warm...

My husband and I stayed for 3 memorable nights in the sumptuous River Room of Connie and Alf's perfectly lovely Bed & Breakfast. The B&B is not advertised as a spot for birders to stay, but the beautiful grounds abounded with warblers and both Osprey and Bald Eagle were easy to spot along the river past the garden. From the...

Alf and Connie were great host. Our stay felt like we were going to a friends house. This is what a B&B should feel like. The house ans rooms were beautiful and welcoming. The property is so nice to walk through and special added touches everywhere. They suggested great places to eat and visit. They knew the area so well.... More
