Desmond and Adrianna ar very kind, accomodating and friendlly and make the most wonderful breakfasts. They are very much people focused, well travelled and knowledgeable, as we had an opportunity to share stories with them from time to time. My wife Kirsten and myself really enjoyed our stay there during Aug 2nd to 4th. We found the guests we met... More

We arrived in a pouring rainstorm and found a warm welcome from Desmond, our host. He was very helpful - got our dinner reservations and made arrangements for a last-minute tasting at the nearby vineyard. A fine view of Grand Pre was a short walk away. Our room looked out over the vineyards. My only caveat is that the lighting... More

What an adorable quaint B&B with a great location to see the vineyards. Our hosts Adrianna and Des were delightful people who made us feel welcome and served delicious breakfasts! We stayed in the Marechal Foch room upstairs and the bed is very comfortable. Beautiful view of Grand Pre vineyards which is right next door. We also ate at the... More

We stayed here one night in late June. Desmond, our host, gave us a bottle of sparkling wine, since it was our 10 year anniversary. It was lovely! His wife was away on a trip, and he seemed a bit frazzled, but all in all he was a great host. We stayed in the wine cellar, which was very large... More

The Olde Lantern Inn looks out on the vineyards at Grand Pre. What could be nicer? On a rainy day, the fireplace in the room was very welcome. The room was warm, comfortable and clean; breakfast, cooked by Desmond, very tasty. Visit the winery and take in the UNESCO view of Grand Pre.

We arrived 15 min before checkin greeted with "oh your early" and almost felt like we should wait in our car till check in time. The inn was in a bit of shambles due to renovations. No amenities - we had to get ice from the restaurant they phoned the inn were told no ice available. No fireplace in room... More

If you're planning to visit the Grand Pre area, stay here; there's no need to look further. With only a few rooms, the Inn has the quiet, intimate, comfortable feel a B&B should provide. It's beautifully situated, up off a small road a few miles from Wolfville, tucked away among the vineyards of Grand Pre; we had grape vines right... More

This is a unique Bed and Breakfast on the fringes of a working vineyard and winery. It also is a short walk through the vines to a UNESCO world heritage site, so the location for this wine rep was awesome. There is also a winery tasting room and tours within a two minute walk and an award winning restaurant as... More

If you are looking for a place to stay in the Grand Pre area of Nova Scotia, then look no more because here it is. Located next door to the Grand Pre Vineyard it has an excellent location. A short walk to the Vineyard gives you access to tastings, tours and the excellent restaurant. The room was fantastic and oh... More

My husband and I had a nice, relaxing stay here recently despite the unspring-like weather. The new owners are very nice, friendly and accommodating. The only disappointing thing was the lack of a fireplace in our room, as indicated in the pictures on their website. That was the main reason we booked that particular room. They need to update the... More

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and we thank you for the constructive feedback. We took over the Inn last summer and are busy introducing certain changes in the rooms and living areas, in keeping with our style of hospitality. We hope to see you again soon! Adriana and Desmond More
