We stayed at Gray Gables B&B recently and were pleased with our experience there. The house is very nice and very clean. There is 1 guest room on the main floor and 2 guest rooms upstairs. The bedrooms are pretty, clean and comfortable with nice, modern ensuite bathrooms. The beds were comfortable and we slept very well. Nice and quiet,... More

While visiting Nova Scotia's South Shore we had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful B&B for 2 nights. Our room was absolutely lovely and breakfast was delicious. Jacqui & Dave made us feel at home right from the beginning - wonderful hosts! My husband and I have stayed at many B&B in the past 10 years or so and... More

We stayed in their "Ocean Mist" room, what a comfortable room with it's own bathroom and outstanding view. Everywhere was immaculate, very clean and comfortable. Our hosts Jacqui and Dave made us very welcome and were most friendly, sharing their recipes as well. The breakfasts were excellent, Dave's speciality was Blueberry Pancakes and they were good. The location is great,... More

From the warm welcome to the heartfelt goodbye, we thoroughly enjoyed our two-night stay at Gray Gables--a charming and comfortable home, with the most relaxing sea view! It was a great base for visits to Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg, Chester and Halifax. We had a wonderful early morning 2.5 mile trail walk around Graves Island. Coffee and tea always available, comfy...

Beautiful property run by Jacqui and Dave, better known as best hosts ever. Gray Gables is perfectly located for sight seeing, golfing or just relaxing. Breakfast was superb. Would return again and again.

We stayed one night at the Gray Gables B&B. It was absolutely perfect. The view from the room was amazing. The bedroom was large, comfortable and clean. Our host was very friendly and welcoming. There are 3 bedrooms for the travelers. The living room is also available. We met the 2 others couples and spent a very enjoyable evening. The... More

When travelling as much as we do, it is hard, if not impossible to find accommodation that "ticks all the boxes", but this one certainly did. We stayed at Gray Gables for six nights, making it our base for touring and moreover our home for the week. That can be risky when you visit somewhere new, miles from our home... More

My wife and I stayed at Gray Gables Bed & Breakfast for our wedding anniversary and we were very impressed with the entire establishment. The whole property was meticulously maintained inside and out and gave off an extremely welcoming, warm, peaceful feeling from the moment we pulled up to the place and walked through the door. Gray Gables B&B truly... More

Gray Gables is one of the best places I have stayed. Jacqui and Dave make their home feel like a home away from home. The breakfasts are amazing and the view from my room was to die for. I would recommend Gray Gables and I cannot wait to return.
