A wonderful room and great hosts. The setting is so relaxing you don't want to leave. Very quiet. Good breakfast and very nice bed. We had a lower room with a cove view. Good base location for many close by attractions. Extremely clean with extra amenities. Would highly recommend.

We spent 3 nights at Rum Hollow during a trip to Nova Scotia. The location is great - close to Halifax as well as many great tourist locations including Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay, Lunenburg and lots of little beaches. The Lookout Room was clean and comfortable and the bed has to be one of the most comfortable I'd ever slept... More

Beautiful home so private and quiet, fabulous room, breathtaking setting on the water, and wonderful host and hostess. Best bed and breakfast we have stayed in to date. Lots of helpful information on seeing the area. Breakfast was delicious, fresh cookies each day and help your self to tea or coffee anytime.

We just finished a delightful week with Jim & Debbie in the wheelchair friendly Landings room overlooking the tranquil St. Margaret's Bay. The house is very modern and well decorated with a spacious room and double sized bathroom equipped with a couples Jacuzzi and full shower. For the first few days, we followed Jim's detailed advice and maps to visit... More

We stayed three nights in the Landings room; large, clean, comfortable, and with a fabulous view of the bay. The whole house is beautiful. Host Jim is very friendly and is super helpful with maps and suggestions for things to see and do. The breakfast was a bit of a weak link; certainly adequate and plentiful, but we would prefer...
