Lovely house built in 1864. The couple worked incredibly hard to make a beautiful BnB. The room was great with an en suite bath. The details were well attended to and the breakfasts were delicious. Esther is a great guide for things to do and things to see. I'd recommend this BnB to anyone.

No other Yarmouth accommodation compares to this one! We have visited Yarmouth several times and the experience at Harbour's Edge was the best yet. The home is overflowing with character, the owners take such pride in the property and the views are incredible. Walking distance to everything, and situated at the end of the Yarmouth Harbour, you can watch the... More

The owners of this property have worked hard to maintain the historical value of their home. Rooms were clean and well furnished in period furniture. One concern was that the towels were clean but had taken awhile to dry so they did smell musty. We were too shy to mention this and made do with one large towel that was... More

Beautiful Victorian house with large, comfortable rooms including sumptuous bathrooms. Host was very personable and very helpful with tips on local sights. Breakfasts were excellent with many homemade delights and personal selections.

Beautiful home. We stayed in the Ellen Brown room which faces the road; road noise wasn’t an issue, especially with a fan going. The room was quite large and comfortable. Our hostess warned us that wireless can be iffy in that particular room, but we didn’t find it to be difficult. Adirondack chairs lined up in the back yard facing... More

Quick summary: very comfortable room and accommodating hosts. Excellent breakfast. A good option if you are taking the ferry to/from Yarmouth to Portland, Maine. We stayed in the Georgie Allen room, which has two double beds in a spacious room and a view of the harbor. Sofa. A big chest of drawers, closet, and two luggage racks provide a lot... More

My wife and I live on Cape Cod, we took the Nova Star Ferry from Portland and spent a week in Nova Scotia, staying in different places almost every night. We never make reservations in places that we've never been before because my wife likes to check the places out first, she's not overly picky but insists on a clean... More

we stayed at the Harbour's Edge in late May for 2 nights. Esther was very welcoming and served a delicious breakfast. we stayed in the Clara Caie room and it was very cosy. the house has quite a history so try and read Gil's epic write-up on the restoration of the house while you are visiting. highly recommended.

Lived up to all the excellent reviews: lovely house and location, gracious and helpful hostess, very good breakfast. My only niggle: the generic liquid soap and shampoo in the bath/ shower struck the wrong note. Sorry to be picky - and at least you also provided hard soap.

We loved staying at this B&B on our last night in Nova Scotia! We took the ferry to and from Portland, ME so this was a great option - close enough to the ferry for a full night sleep. The rooms are lovely and the Inn has been painstakingly updated to achieve modern comfort. The Innkeepers are friendly and create... More
