We stayed the last night of trip before catching a very early flight out in the morning . The home is beautiful and immaculately clean. Near highway (but not too near), with a spacious green yard. Charming host. Since we left so early, she even packed us a breakfast to take on the road. When we were their the wifi... More

This is the most beautiful B&B I have ever stayed at. Very quiet and elegant. The house is beautiful and the owners are very friendly and provided great service. The bed we slept on was extremely comfortable. Not a bad thing to say, DEFINITELY recommended.

Great b&b in a beautiful heritage home. Pretty bedrooms (but older home, so not huge). Very nice and friendly host. Quite close to Halifax Airport. Breakfast was good but unchanging - bacon and eggs. Fresh fruit would have been a nice addition. Recommended.

We spent one night at the Briarwood B & B whilst in transit from New Brunswick to Halifax Airport. The B & B is ideally situated a short distance from the highway, and reasonably close to the airport. The beautiful house is situated in very extensive and beautifully kept grounds, and is in a very peaceful location. We were greeted... More

We loved everything about this b&b. The room, home, breakfast and grounds were amazing. The hosts were very accommodating, even offering to pick us up at the airport if needed. We spent the first night of our NS vacation here and the last 2 nights. Proximity to the airport makes it ideal to do this.

We stayed at Briarwood the last night of a 10 day vacation to Nova Scotia. Wanting to be close to the airport, we found this b&b to be in a perfect and quiet location. The house is wonderfully decorated and very warm and inviting as soon as you step inside. Well manicured gardens and outdoor space was welcoming as well.... More

Where do you start? Perfect location, perfect hosts, perfect beds and a beautiful house. We stayed at the Briarwood at the start of our vacation in October and again for 3 nights at the end. You are made to feel very welcome and the room (Quince) was exceptional. The bed was so comfortable and a good nights sleep was granted.... More

They say in real estate that location is everything and that certainly holds true for Briarwood's location just minutes from the Halifax airport. We stayed here both after our arrival and before our departure for home after two great weeks in the Maritimes. Despite its proximity, the beautiful old home and its magnificently landscaped, huge back garden are exceedingly quiet.... More

My mom and I spent two nights at the Briarwood in June on our vacation to Nova Scotia. We were delighted from the moment we set eyes on this beautiful old home. Our room was spacious and had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and even the sheets were high quality. There were two living rooms to relax in... More

I just had to return here for a second visit. Such a beautiful place to stay, comfortable, and easy to find just off the highway.
