We had the great pleasure of staying a month at the Barn at the Point B&B. Moira is a wonderful host. Accommodating, thoughtful and generous. Great breakfasts, luxurious bathroom and a lovely big quiet room with a king size bed, overlooking a big lawn. We were even permitted to bring our two dogs -- a privilege beyond measure. There are...

It may have just been the night we were there... or the guests that were there. While Moira said to make yourself at home... there wasn't much of her home that seemed open to us to make ourselves at home in. Doors were shut to keep animals out or in certain rooms... and I wasn't sure if that meant to... More

While we enjoy having guests stay at our home we are wary that our guests may not enjoy our pets who also live here. We like to keep the door to our personal space closed as that is where the pets live, and to avoid them entering the guest area we also try to keep the external door closed. We... More

We had a wonderful experience at this lovely bed and breakfast that we stopped in at unexpected during the winter offseason. We were treated with amazing hospitality. Breakfast was great. The hosts were charming and accommodating, and very informative about the area as we were there looking at properties. The property was breath taking. We took our puppies for a... More

Had two days off and despite it being not only in the middle of the week but winter, Moira and Phil were excellent in providing me with a peaceful and warm atmosphere to recharge my soul. Sometimes when the winter blahs interfere with our normal routine of work and homelife, one feels the intense need to find a peaceful place... More

We stayed 5 nights in this spectacular location. Moira and Phil are wonderful hosts. The room was beautiful, the food was great (LOVED the lasagna). Trails are great to walk even in the winter and the shoreline was amazing at sunset. Would definitely stay there again.

We received a warm welcome upon arrival. Our room was quaint and cozy. Loved the resident catfish! We are vegan, and they did not blink an eye regarding this - despite having nothing on the menu for us, they made a creative, yummy vegan breakfast! Also, some delicious homemade preserves sold on site. Great stay :)

This more than met my expectations as a retreat to get away for a few days from the drama of life. I checked out the marked trails which took me to the shores of St Mary's Bay which I had all to myself. It was so peaceful sitting on a piece of driftwood listening to the sound of the waves.... More

My husband and I like to escape to the country on labour day weekend for a last grasp of summer. This year we chose The Barn at the Point. We were not disappointed. Moira and Phil are most welcoming. The property is large with marked trails to explore. The trail which we took led us to a beautiful beach with... More
