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

We booked here on our way from the Halifax airport to the North and have found a very nice house with a beautiful garden, very nice Dutch hosts, very clean and big room with a big bed. The breakfast was outstanding. You get home made cake and different fruit-bread with a special cooked egg/omelette. We had a very friendly conversation... More

We had a lovely, bright room with skylights. The Dutch couple who own this B&B are delightful and supply a delicious, healthy breakfast with wonderful home-baked breads and biscuits. They have four beautifully furnished rooms on the second floor.

Lovely large room and bathroom , huge kingsize bed!!!!! Very small TV and in a corner. Very nice couple, with good info and time to spend with their guests. Breakfast egg dish disappointing, Accommodation quite a bit outside Truro. Went to Victoria Park, worth seeing the trails to the waterfalls., got to be fit..... Went to Maitland Bridge to watch...

We enjoyed a one night stay in the very clean and comfortable property. Hosts were friendly, warm and welcoming. Breakfast delicious and morning coffee excellent. I guess the only negative was that we were surprised when paying our bill, that a request for a Tip appeared on the credit card machine. In all our many years of staying in B&B's,... More

Thank you for your review about your stay at our B&B. We are surprised that you felt pressured into leaving a tip. As you know our credit card machine is set up in our restaurant and therefore a tip option is included in the payment process. We always mention to our B&B guests that this can be by-passed and we...

We stayed only for 1 night and wished we stayed longer. Nelly and Maarten were excellent host, warm, welcoming and knowledgeable about the region. The breakfast was wonderful - great good, and relaxing. It felt more like home than at a B&B. This was our first night in Nova Scotia and it was a great start to our 10 day... More

My husband and I spent 8 nights here and our stay was absolutely perfect! Maarten and Nelly are warm, welcoming, fun hosts who make you feel like family. In their guest book I wrote that this was "Home Away from Home" but since the couple who stayed there the same time as we did used that as the title of... More

Host Nelly and Maarten & Decko, were a true delight. They made you feel comfortable and at home. We were with them (6) days, each mornings breakfast was a gourmet meal. The amenities were all you could ask for. Very pleasant rooms,clean and well kept. Would highly recommend Baker's Tearoom and Bed and Breakfast.

Maarten and Nelly were kind, laid-back, accommodating, and welcoming. What more could you ask for! The house is very tastefully decorated with antiques and luxurious touches (a working claw-footed tub!). They cooked a DELICIOUS breakfast meal - and vegan-ized it for me without any problem whatsoever.
