What an excellent choice! We have stayed at a number of great b n b's this trip, and this was far and away the best. Location away from downtown and close to sights. We were able to travel to Burrntcoat Head to see the low tide and get back to see the tidal bore at Truro without rushing. The ambiance... More

A great place to stay! Maarten and Nelly are charming hosts. They could not be more attentive or friendly. They catered to our every need and provided a lovely breakfast. We would definitely recommend staying at this place. There is even a swimming pool.

This is an excellent B&B, well run my a helpful and knowledgeable Dutch couple. It is situated within easy (driving) reach of down-town but in a peaceful area. The public rooms are tasteful and spacious, and Nellie cooks delightful gourmet breakfasts. Tea and coffee are are available any time and the rooms are comfortable. The cheaper one (Thomas) is OK...

Upon arriving at the Baker's Chest B&B, Nelly showed us menus of local restaurants and had a map printed to show us how to get back. The room was clean, nicely decorated (not cluttered nor sparse), and the bed was very comfortable. One of the things we loved about this B&B was the 'coffee nook' - a self-serve tea/coffee bar...

We stayed at The Bakers Chest B&B for one night in August as we had booked to do tidal bore rafting in the area. I wish we could have stayed longer! Nelly & Maarten were very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. We stayed in the Karn Suite which was lovely. Everything had been thought of, even a corkscrew in... More

Spent a night at the Bakers Chest in Aug. 2014,the host & hostess were very accommodating. They helped with restaurants and local sights. The room was clean and charming and breakfast was very tasty.If we ever went back to Truro we would probably stay there.

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.
