We chose Truro as a home base to travel around the Bay of Fundy for 2 days. Suncatcher B+B turned out to be the perfect place! Ruth, the proprietor, is absolutely lovely! The rooms are very comfortable, and breakfast was yummy. Ruth is a wealth of information, giving great suggestions for things to do and places to visit. Ruth also... More

Our stay with Ruth and Keltie was an experience on its own. Ruth was so warm, her home so impeccably clean and beautiful and gave us our most peaceful sleep from the hustle and bustle of city life. My favorite part in the stay though was the breakfast! I can remember the different delicious spread that was served each day... More

The rooms are very comfortable, spacious and with separate baths. Food is wonderful, including fresh baked evening deserts! Ruth will assist you on your trip and her historical perspectives of Nova Scotia were very insightful. Great stay.

I am pleased to know that you enjoyed learning about Nova Scotia's history re both the Mi'kmaw & the many cultures which have arrived in our province. History is so much more interesting over tea/coffee & cake! More

Thank you for your positive review of my B&B. I did enjoy your "stayed by chance" reference as sometimes a last minute choice offers a great experience while travelling. It is always rewarding as a B&B operator to know that my guests have pleasant memories of their time at Suncatcher B&B, especially of the evening tea/coffee/ dessert time. More

At Suncatcher B&B I like to serve a "can't-eat-lunch" breakfast so that my guests will be able to go through the day nicely filled! At tea/coffee time each evening, I also enjoy hearing about their day's activities & their impressions about what Nova Scotia has to offer tourists. More

Excellent assortment of fruits, jams, breads in a very delicious breakfast. The bedroom/bathroom suite was very comfortable. Hostess was well-versed in local as well as more general information. She provided menus of local restaurants & maps of how to get to them. Price was comparable to other similar accommodations. We enjoyed chatting with other guests at breakfast too. Many thanks!...

It is always a pleasure to tell my guests about places to visit here in the Truro area as each visitor has different interests. I like to point out some of the sites that are not as well advertised such as the Dalhousie School of Agriculture's on-going project & ever-growing Rock Garden.
