The couple who run the b and b are quite nice and helpful. they told us about the tidal bore which you should see. They also have lots of good info on dining. Our room was well appointed and the breakfast was excellent.

Expecting some luxury, based on the reviews here, we experienced a no-frills, clean, but disappointing stay. The hosts were warm and friendly and the place is spotlessly clean, but otherwise, it's simple accommodations lacking amenities (e.g., where to put your stuff in the bathroom--on the floor?). Our room was on the second floor, just under the roof, and very hot.... More

We arrived and were promptly greeted by Maarten and Nelly. They showed us to our room which was absolutely lovely. Maarten even went and got our luggage and carried it upstairs to the room. The entire B&B is clean and comfortable. Our hosts maintain a meticulous place and were so helpful in pointing out places we should visit and see.... More

We stayed with Nellie and Maarten last week during the Bay of Fundy leg of our road trip. Both were excellent hosts. The home made and baked breakfasts with the assortment of dutch breads were the perfect start to our day. Nellie and Maarten are friendly, knowledgeable about the area and were flexible with our late arrival. The property is... More

We booked the Baker's Chest because we were arriving on a flight at the Halifax airport and wanted to stay somewhere nearby to crash before driving the several hours home. Our host, Maarten, greeted us at about 10:00 PM and was really friendly. The room was nice and the bed quite comfortable. The neighbourhood is very quiet and the whole... More

Lovely bed and breakfast with lovely hosts. Room was very clean and roomy (even for our family of 4). Thoroughly enjoyed the fresh fruit crepe and other homemade goodies for breakfast. Comfortable bed but road noise (mostly loud motorcycles) woke me a few time. All in all, an excellent value for 2 but a little on the high side for... More

We spent one night with Nelly and Maarten at their lovely B&B after our wild ride on the Schubenacadie River. The B&B is out of town, but not terribly far; we drove in for dinner. Baker's Chest is beautifully decorated and the cleanest B&B I have ever been in...love that! We had the Thomas Room..kind of small, but adequate for... More

The room was gorgeous and so was the food. So fancy. We had a claw foot bathtub in our bathroom and our girl thought for sure that made her a princess. Maarten and Nelly were kind enough to let us show up crazy late and greeted us with a smile. They have a beautiful bar made out of organ keyboards.... More

Stayed here one night while traversing Nova Scotia. Located just outside of town. Friendly innkeepers. Nice, comfortable, clean room. You can borrow a DVD player and DVDs from the innkeeper to watch on the small TV in your room, which was a good way to spend a rainy evening. Slept well. The next morning was served this delicious Apple-Bacon Crepe... More
