We stayed with Cathie for our 25th anniversary trip to Nova Scotia. She is such a gratuitous host and her breakfast is wonderful! On our last morning we had to leave at 3am and she even packed us a breakfast of egg salad sandwiches on homemade bread. They were delicious:)

By the Bay was such a wonderful place to stay during our time in Nova Scotia. The property and facility is terrific. The rooms are clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. It is nice to walk through the yard to the water or relax on the verandah. It's a great home base if you plan to visit Peggys Cove, Halifax or... More

Cathie is a lovely host and the house is very clean and nicely appointed. The breakfast was delicious and Cathie was lovely to our kids. The Bed and Breakfast is fantastic value. The only thing that I would mention is that the sound insulation between the Nora and Laurie room and the Glen Margaret room isn't great, so if you're... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely and helpful review Kirsty. I will make more of an effort to ask guests in the Nora and Laurie Fraser Room to use the Jacuzzi tub earlier in the evening. I realize that sound travels - especially to the Glen Margaret Room. Thanks again and I hope that the rest... More

I left the frenetic hustle and bustle of Toronto to visit with some old friends in Nova Scotia and spent 3 days and nights in the glorious calm and serenity of the By the Bay. Cathie's warm yet organized hospitality as well as the gorgeous location of Glen Margaret rival any accommodation on earth. The bed was the most comfortable... More

We stayed at By The Bay B&B for one night in May. Cathie is an excellent and generous hostess. The house is comfortable, welcoming and spotlessly clean. The location is peaceful and the garden is lovely. The breakfast is as good as everyone says it is!

By the Bay Bed and Breakfast is wonderful. Cathy makes you feel like you are coming home. It has fantastic beds, linens and space but more importantly it has Cathy looking after you. She is a great hostess and is cognizant of peoples needs (dietary, schedules. trip planning, etc). Her B&B has a feeling of privacy with a large green... More

My boyfriend and I needed a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of the city. By the Bay B&B was such a charming inn and was the perfect place for a quiet evening by the water. We're not sure how our lovely hostess Cathy managed to make deer pheasants and a big bright moon appear over our one night... More

My wife and I stayed at By the Bay Bed and Breakfast. Cathie was a delightful and charming host. The location was very convenient, the rooms were bright and cheerful, and the breakfast was tasty. Obviously, a lot of effort has gone into making this a great place to stay. We recommend Cathie and her Bed and Breakfast highly.

This was a great find! My boyfriend and I ended our Maritimes trip with this b&b, and now I wish we had started with it! We didn't have time to take advantage of the great swimming spot on the back of the property, but the Fraser room was fantastic! It had a jacuzzi, balcony looking over the bay, and a... More
