I stayed here overnight on my last day in Nova Scotia to see Peggy's cove. The B&B is a perfect location if you want to get up early to catch the sunrise and see the sunset. Cathy , the owner was sweet enough to check the times for me otherwise I would have totally missed the time. She's very personable... More

Had the pleasure of staying at this quaint B+B about 10 min drive from Peggy's Cove and about 45 min drive from Halifax Int Airport. Very easy drive. Cheers to Cathie who runs the place and made me feel at home. And just like home at that. I came to photograph the area and got great advice from her and... More

We stayed at Cathy's place on our last night before flying out in April 2015 - and wished we had been able to stay longer! A beautiful, very clean room with a comfy armchair, fireplace, and spacious bath, and a spectacular view out to the water (with its own balconey). The breakfast was superb, and Cathy so very friendly. We... More

Stayed with Cathy last May 2014. Clean and cozy. Her breakfast was amazing. All made by Cathy. Bread, preserves etc. She is very personable. Near Peggy's Cove. Quiet area. On lake or pond. Great stay.

Thank you Joan for the excellent review. I really appreciate that you have taken the time to write this. I hope that the recipes you "stole" from my website worked out well for you. I really enjoy making homemade bread and it is nice to know that it is appreciated. By the Bay is actually on Long Cove (salt water... More

We stayed in this B&B during our traveling by Nova Scotia in September. We were always on the road and did not stay anywhere during our 3 weeks trip more than 1 night. In Cathy's house we decided to stay 3 nights. We felt ourselves really at home. Breakfast was wonderful and we even stole some of the recipes from... More

By the Bay is a wonderful bed and breakfast. Cathy is a very gracious, accommodating hostess. Her home is warm and cozy and she makes you feel really at home. Our room had a great view from the balcony and the extra touches were appreciated: chocolate bar, water in the refrigerator, glasses and wine cork. Cathy's breakfasts were fantastic. We... More

Staying at this B&B was a relaxing experience. The upstairs ensuite was bright and welcoming. All supplies in the bathroom were appreciated...real bottles of shampoo and conditioner -not the push button containers, plus individually packaged soaps. Very well appointed. Cathie's breakfast was delicious with bread fresh out of the oven paired with home made condiments. The view from our outside... More

We stayed in the “John & Agnes Long for Verandah Lovers” room, which is on the ground floor with a private bath just outside in the hall, and a private door to the verandah. Our host was friendly and informative and prepared a great breakfast for her guests! I would definitely recommend this B&B.

We are a couple with two kids, 2 and 5, and Cathie was a great host with tons of patience even when the kids became little rascals. We truly felt at home. All our needs were catered for, and Cathie helped us beyond our expectations. We had really interesting conversations with Cathie and got some great tips on what to... More

We stayed at Kathy's on July 30th. She couldn't have made us feel any more at home. I did learn that when you book your stay through a 3rd party (booking.com, etc.) a portion of the price goes to them. If they helped find the room that's fine, but if not, I'll book directly from the Hotels website in the... More
