My husband and I stayed as we were going to a wedding in Stewiacke. Marla was very accommodating and allowed us to check in early to get ready for the wedding. We had a great sleep in the Victorian Rose room and the breakfast was delicious!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and chatting with our hosts! I would certainly recommend... More

We loved the opportunity to meet new people from elsewhere over breakfast. Marla and Darrel are wonderful and friendly hosts who helped make our 3 night stay pleasant. We felt that we had gone into the past with its dated decor and trappings. Thoughts of my grandmother's house came to mind with the china cabinet, the crocheted doilies, a parlor,... More

The Nelson House is conveniently located near the Halifax Airport. The bedroom and bathroom were very clean and well appointed. We stayed 2 nights (a week apart) but stopped in another day to retrieve some packages they were kind enough to store for us. There were choices for breakfast but we had the 'eggs benny' both days because they were... More

We took friends who arrived at the Halifax airport from Finland to this lovely and gracious B&B. We were warmly welcomed and treated to tea and cookies on arrival. The rooms were spacious, well-appointed and immaculate. We had booked all 3 rooms in anticipation of this visit. Our hostess and host were both so accommodating and friendly. Breakfast was a... More

We booked in to stay at this B&B on July 15, 2013....needless to say it was extremely hot weather. Upon arrival we noticed that only one out of three was raised to approx 12 inches high (enough to fit a horizontal fan in it)....the room was sweltering hot and we asked if any of the other windows in the room...

Feedback is always welcomed, Bonnie. It was indeed record breaking temperatures of 39C degrees the day you arrived, which is unusally hot for our Maritime climate, and I do apologize that you felt your short stay with us was not a 4 Star experience. We provide window fans that work well for our climate, but due to the high temperatures... More

My husband & I really enjoyed our stay @ Marla & Doug's home. Breakfast was awesome, poached pears were a real treat & wonderful eggs benny to follow, no need for lunch. Great location, close to stores & local pub. Beautiful view of the horses in the neighbours yard in te morning while enjoying breakfast.

This, the last of our 8 different B&B’s on our Maritimes trip, was one of the best. Marla has thought of everything. The vintage house is very inviting. We had an early fight out of Halifax and she still got up early to make sure we ate one of her wonderful breakfasts before we left. Comfortable bed, large clean bathroom,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Marla and Darrell (and Bailey, the friendly dog). Their vintage home is clean and comfortable, and a fine place to settle in after a day's travel. Both host and hostess took the time to sit and visit with us, providing information on subjects ranging from fishing and lobstering to social developments and real estate.... More
