Stayed here for one night while on our way back to Halifax. The hosts are absolutely the most charming folks ever.......and they make this B&B what it is. We had the larger room (Estey) which overlooked the back garden and were not disappointed. It was a hotter day the day we arrived and while the room has a portable air... More

It was the first time for my boyfriend and I to stay at a B&B, and encouraged us to think about trying more B&B in the future. We were welcomed very nicely and warmly. It was very nice and clean inside. The highlight is definitely the breakfast. Although my boyfriend is vegetarian, they were very flexible about it.

This was a great "home away from home." The hosts were friendly, welcoming, and helpful, with maps and suggestions of things to do and places to eat in the area. The breakfasts were very good, and the communal table setup (and hosts' participation) encouraged interesting conversations with other travelers. My room was pleasant and comfortable, as were the common areas... More

We spent one night at Baker's Chest on our recent trip in Atlantic Canada. Nelly and Maarten are super hosts and made us feel welcome immediately. We were lucky to get the last available room that evening, which was spotlessly clean and wonderfully comfortable. It's obvious that Nelly and Maarten have paid a lot of attention to detail to make... More

We stayed for two nights while spending our anniversary in Truro. Maarten and Nelly were very welcoming, and were quick to recommend us places to see/restaurants/etc. We spent time in the hot tub on the first night, and Maarten was very helpful getting us started. Breakfast on both mornings was amazing, with fresh fruit and homemade baked goods. Nelly and... More

We stayed at the Baker's Chest on the last day of our trip to the Maritimes and were sorry we couldn't have stayed longer. Maarten and Nellie were very friendly and welcoming. Our room was comfortable and spotless. Their home boasts a gorgeous garden and patio area. Perfect for relaxing. Breakfast featured homemade dutch breads (very tasty) and a fruit... More
