I travelled with my mother at the beginning of July. We were warmly welcomed at A Seafaring Maiden B&B. Bill & Ann Marie are lovely hosts who provide a comfortable room, delicious breakfast and local advice. We were also fortunate to share the breakfast table with wonderful travelers this made our stay all the more pleasant. Thank you for your... More

Ann Marie and Bill were great hosts. They were helpful about places to visit but also not intrusive. Their home is beautiful and the breakfasts were great! Be sure to try the carrot cake jam. My room had a view of the Annapolis River. The bed was very comfortable and the adjoining bathroom was well supplied and comfortable.

We were so fortunate to be able to stay at this wonderfully traditional Bed and Breakfast as they are usually fully booked. We really appreciate Ann Marie and Bill's efforts in accommodating our specific needs. We are traveling with our twelve year old daughter and they were especially attentive to ensuring she enjoyed her experience and breakfast choices. We enjoyed... More

Ann Marie and Bill are the consummate B&B hosts - great breakfasts, thoughtful personal touches, knowledgeable recommendations for sightseeing and dining in the area. Rooms are immaculate with modern bathrooms, yet retain the period charm of the house. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and recommend A Seafaring Maiden for others travelling in the Annapolis Royal area.

We found this B&B at the last minute following an exciting day touring the area. We were warmly greeted by Bill and Ann Marie. Bill carried our luggage to our beautiful room. The bed was comfortable, room was clean, breakfast delicious and hospitality second to none. Don't miss this B&B if you are in area.

An excellent choice. The owners provide a very welcoming, yet relaxed, atmosphere. Bill & Ann Marie are extremely knowledgeable about the area & their recommendations about what to see & do & where to eat were 'on the money.' There is parking available, a terrific view from the veranda, & a 'bayside' picnic area. Breakfast was very tasty & varied.

Friendly and Generous hosts made our trip to Granville Ferry most enjoyable. We have been to this part of Nova Scotia before, but never "across the water" to Granville Ferry, one of the oldest settlements in North America. Bill and Ann Marie were the consumate hosts, with tips about surrounding points of interest and about the best way to get... More

We had a very enjoyable 2 nights with Anne Marie and Bill. Lovely room and a comfortable bed. Anne Marie also did a massive load of washing the night we arrived, we were desperate for clean clothes as none of the places we had stayed before had laundry facilities. They also gave us great advice on places to visit including... More

I don't usually do B&Bs but that was all there was. This was a very cute, well-decorated, charming house with a great room and king bed. Bath was private, but across the hall. Some rooms have bathrooms in the room. Breakfast was excellent. Owners are very helpful and caring. Across the river from Annapolis Royal but an easy 5 min.... More

Ann Marie's great grandfather built this house and barn. Lots of family meaning. She and her husband Bill have turned it into a grand B&B. Period furniture in every room. Breakfast in the Wedgewood Room -- the traditional WW blue with decorative relief work painted white. Right across the river from Annapolis Royal. Perfect viewing of the magnificent tides.
