Ruth is just fabulous! The evening chats with her over tea and home made desserts were so interesting - good conversations and a great insight into the area and the people who live there. Staying at a B&B (such as this one) is such a great way to meet and mix with the local people - we met many super... 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.

The name Suncatcher is based on all of the stained glass suncatchers and pieces, all designed and made by Gerry, throughout the house. Also noticeable are the strikingly complex and beautiful needlepoint pieces, also made by Gerry. The B&B, in a modern home, has two spacious bedrooms with very attractive en suite bathrooms.

A great welcome from Ruth & Jerry, you feel part of the family and Keltie the dog is very friendly. A lovely room - Chignecto - spacious & comfortable with roomy bathroom. Lots of stained glass round the house made by Jerry. After an evening out Ruth provides coffee with homemade dessert & plenty of chat!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Gerry & Ruth welcome you to Suncatcher B&B, located in a suburban area of Truro but only five minutes drive from the downtown core. Suncatcher B&B is a four-level split house built in the early 1970s. The B&B rooms are the entire upper level which allows for two large airy rooms each with a spacious four-piece ensuite. After a day of traveling and sight-seeing, our guests gather in our living room for tea/coffee and home-made dessert. This is an enjoyable part of the B&B experience for us. We enjoy chatting with our guests and are willing to help with any trip plans and recommendations. ... more   less
