We spent two nights at Browns guest house. Nancy is a wonderful lady and very helpful. We had a lovely room number 3 with a very comfortable queen bed, you do share a bathroom. This guest house is the cleanest home I have ever been in. Nancy puts out a very nice continental breakfast. You will be happy if you... More

Wonderful value. I paid $90 per night and slept in an immaculately clean, charmingly decorated room. The hostess, Nancy, pays much attention to detail and the rooms are very charming and decorated with antique pieces. The queen bed was very comfortable and there was a smaller bed in the room which could be used by a child. Nancy provided a... More

My son and I stayed here recently. A mixup occurred and the room reserved for our late arrival had been inadvertently given to an earlier guest. However, Nancy accommodated us and we had beds to sleep in! A nice light breakfast was available at an earlier than normal time frame, as requested. The one thing missing on a hot humid... More

Brown's Guest Home is located right on the edge of downtown Amherst so it's just a few minutes walk to city centre and the nearest Tim Horton's. My partner & I stayed there for 2 nights in May 2015 and several times previously. Your hostess, Nancy Allen, is quite cordial and willing to discuss local history or point out places... More

I had the opportunity of staying at Brown's Guest Home in August of this year - historical, excellent upkeep to original finishing in this heritage property, amazing hostesses and lovely breakfast. I was a weary traveller and my family was welcomed as family.... will stay here again.

The host was friendly (but seemed a little frazzled), and left us to our business for the most part, which was nice. The house is beautiful, clean and tastefully decorated. The night we stayed we were the only ones staying, which made for an easy time using the shared facilities. There is one full bath, and one with just a... More

Deane and Nancy are welcoming and helpful. Room was comfortable and very clean. Breakfast was good. Enjoyable stay. Highly recommended! Nancy recommended a nearby pub for our evening meal and the food was wonderful. Christopher & Marie

We couldn't've enjoyed a warmer introduction to Nova Scotia than the one we had from Nancy as we arrived at Brown's Guest Home. She really made us feel welcome in her home. Before we'd even asked she furnished us with a leaflet of local restaurants. We chose one she had recommended, which was excellent. The room was comfortable and traditionally... More

I had made a one week trip to Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick, doing most of my travelling by either bus or cab. In between the days that I would be gone, I would see the sights of Amherst. This particular Bed & Breakfast has one of the best locations, so that you can easily commute by cab, bus, train,... More

This historic B&B really gave us the flavor of this historic town. Our hosts were congenial and welcoming. We really enjoyed our stay. It was very convenient to downtown Amherst, Fort Cumberland, and Mt. Allison University in Sackville,NB.
