We stayed one night in September. Our room was large clean and had a great view of the bay. We also had a small diner table and fridge. The table came in handy as there is a great pizza place near by and this gave us a break from eating in a restaurant. The breakfast was good and the conversation... More

This bed and breakfast was quite cute and very very clean. We had the room with the best view of the water and we really enjoyed being able to see the water from every point in the room. Our hosts were so friendly and we had a great conversation over a lovely breakfast. Would go back sometime or refer others.... More

My husband and I stayed at Anchor's Gate in Aug 2014 when we went back to his native Nova Scotia for a wedding. After a LONG trip from CT, we were greeted with a clean, comfy, private destination with gorgeous views of Shad Bay. We had a private entrance, and the room was complete with a private bathroom, table and... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our home. We appreciate it. George said,Oops, he thought that comment would come back and bite him (: context was not the country but government and its susceptibility to gridlock. However, he was guilty of breaking the Golden Rule of never discussing politics or religion. We hope to see... More

Clean, comfortable room. The hosts are very helpful and breakfast is more than filling. Perfect place to learn about the history of Nova Scotia & Newfoundland as the host is very knowledgable. Close to Halifax & Peggy's Cove so a good base to explore in both directions.

I came upon this beautiful B&B by surprise and stayed 3 nights. George and Nancy are wonderful friendly hosts. I enjoyed our many chats over delicious breakfasts. As Peggy's Cove never gets old and was a short drive, I was able to visit four times. I spent one day at the Halifax Harbour and Atlantic Museum which is only a... More

Nancy and George were perfect hosts for our stay in the Bayside area. We were there for three nights in September, 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our "Forequarter" room was bright, clean, comfortable and offered a great view of the bay across the road. Room furnishings were functional and decorated in a maritime theme. The morning sunrises were spectacular!... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in October 2012 and cannot recommend the place highly enough. The room was spotlessly clean and had a superb view of the water and even had a balcony so we could enjoy the fresh air in the morning. Breakfast was fantastic and George and Nancy were perfect hosts. Thank you for a lovely, relaxing... More

We enjoyed staying here. We had an excellent view of the ocean from our room. Breakfast was good and filling. Nancy and George were very helpful and kind. The location was perfect for exploring the area along the coast. Easy distance from peggy's cove and Halifax.

This place was recommended to me by my brother who stayed with George and Nancy last year. My mom and I stayed in the Crow’s Nest room with 2 beds. The room was somewhat basic but somehow just perfect for this place. The room and bathroom were very clean. There is a small fridge in the room and coffee and... More
