The setting of the Harbour's Edge B&B is just that: a nice old house with chosen interiors at the edge of Yarmouth harbour bay, The garden (or rather park) is very nice and (assuming good weather) make sure you arrive early enough to spend some time in the garden! The hosts are very friendly and breakfast is another highlight there.... More

Our visit to this exquisite B and B was extended by the remains of Hurricane Arthur...how lucky we were! This is a fabulous place to stay for more than a night! The home itself is amazing to see (especially after reading the "story" behind it that is left in your room)...and make sure to see the photos of the restoration.... More

Arrived in Yarmouth and Esther checked us into the Harbours Edge . She is a wonderful host, friendly and helpful. We were shown to our room (Audrey Kenney) which has a huge bathroom attached to it. We were made to feel at home and sat with other guests in her fantastic garden which overlooks the water. Breakfast was fresh muffins,... More

In late April, my wife and I were looking for a single night accommodation as part of a late June driving tour that we were planning around Nova Scotia when we found Yarmouth and Harbour’s Edge B&B. We knew very little about the area but with the ratings given to Harbour’s Edge by other Trip Advisor members we decided that... More

We spent a wonderful day at Harbour's Edge before boarding the NovaStar ferry back to Portland, ME. The location was very convenient (you can walk from the ferry) and the story of acquiring and restoring this historical home as a B&B is a compelling one, a microcosm of Yarmouth's history really. Esther is a great host and very involved in... More

We spent a night in Yarmouth with Esther before heading out on the ferry the next day. Her bed and breakfast is a charming place with all the comforts of home. She makes a sensational breakfast and was even kind enough to share her special cooking secrets. I highly recommend staying there.

We were fortunate enough to have one day and night at this beautifully restored home with a most gracious host Ester. The home itself is magnificent, with every attention to detail and luxury. it is situated on the water's edge overlooking Yarmouth Harbour. During our wonderfully delicious breakfast we were treated by a visit from a beautiful red cardinal. Quite... More

This is a little overdue, but I didn't want anyone planning their summer trip to not consider staying at Harbour's Edge. Esther is an amazing host, and I really appreciated all the time she took to sit and chat, as well as her recommendations for where to eat and what to see and do in Yarmouth. My room was beautiful...

If you ever had to book a room in a far away place and only could base your reservation on pictures and guest comments, it can be difficult. But upon arriving at the Harbours Edge, in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia thee most cheerful lady named Esther was there to greet us. She made us feel at home right away. Her rooms... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Harbour's Edge B & B is the only accommodation in Yarmouth on the water. Our large Italianate home was built in 1864, when homes were grand. It sits beautifully on 2 acres of Harbourfront land. We rescued our home from demolition and you will understand why once you enter this great old house. If you enjoy birding, you are going to love this location. With 4 very large bedrooms, all with their own private baths, large full breakfasts, and spacious common areas, you will want to make sure you reserve for a couple of nights. One night won't be enough. Use one of your days in Yarmouth to rent bicycles or a bicycle surrey from The Wheelhouse Surrey and Bike Rentals. These are the only Bicycles Surreys in Nova Scotia! ... more   less
