We stayed at this B&B for two days and wished we could have stayed longer! Ann & Larry were very hospitable and also helpful with restaurant and attraction suggestions in the area. They offer a choice of 4 rooms-three have ensuite bathrooms while the fourth room has it's own private bath across the hall. We stayed in the Fergus Suite... More

Though I had said that we'd arrive early in our reservation email, when we arrived at the B&B the host and hostess Larry and Ann were out for shopping. However, this does not affect our good impression much because subsequently during our two-night stay we had a wonderful time. Larry and Ann were really helpful and hospitable. They offered many...

We stayed for two nights while attending Nova Scotia Music Week events. The room was wonderful, the bed comfortable and the location quiet. The breakfasts were truly superb. Ann and Larry are terrific hosts who made us feel right at home. We admired the spacious yet cosy nature of their large lounge and dining area. Only one suggestion - it... More

My partner and I escaped to Truro for a birthday weekend away from the city. My partner arranged a Romantic Getaway package with Ann and Larry, and the standards were impeccable. We arrived on a Friday night, and the room was warm and inviting (and their house is breath taking!) . The bed was comfy (albeit a little squeaky, but... More

Restful one-night stay at this beautiful B&B! All areas were sparkling clean with crisp, fresh linens! Our room was spacious and bright with very comfy bed. Chef’s Choice for breakfast was so yummy with fruit salad, yogurt & home-made granola, eggs benedict and a beautiful assortment of freshly home-baked breakfast sweet breads … most delicious!! Larry & Ann were wonderful... More

Stayed one night in September 2014. Ann and Mac are wonderful hosts, present a delicious breakfast, quiet location. Wish the beds were king size and less noisy when moving around. Its location makes it easy on/off the highway although we heard no highway noise. Reasonable price and lovely surroundings.

We've just returned home from a two night stay at this lovely B&B. Anne and Larry could not have been more gracious. From the moment we were welcomed into their home, we felt like their personal guests. The breakfasts they served was yummy. Homemade everything, including the yogurt. One morning I asked for the "Chef's Choice", and to my wonderful... More

We stayed 1 night in late August on our return road trip from Cape Breton to Toronto and were charmed by the house, restful, well-treed property, and our hosts. We had a standard room, with our own bath across the hall, but other rooms were available with en-suite bath and 1 had access to a roof deck and jacuzzi if... More

This is a delightful B&B with equally wonderful hosts. Rooms are darling and super clean and the grounds, lovely. We typically aren't B&B users but if they were all like this, we would be easy converts. Thoroughly enjoyed and wholeheartedly recommend!

My husband and I just completed a six week trip through Nova Scotia and PEI. We stayed at 1 hotel, 8 B & B's, 4 Inns and 1 cottage. Our stay at Ann and Larry's was one of our best experiences of our trip, although the entire trip was beyond amazing! We loved the room - we rented the Master... More
