Mel and Will (not forgetting best friend Schnauzer Max) offer the very best in B and B hospitality in a wonderful Nova Scotia setting at Mahone Bay. We found them by a chance encounter on the ferry from PEI and we are so glad we did. Breakfasts were excellent (hosted by Max) and nothing was too much trouble for the... More

We've visited Mahone Bay many times, but had never stayed there in a B&B. After reading reviews on Trip Advisor, we selected the Fisherman's Daughter and it proved to be an excellent choice. Mel and Willem know how to make their guests feel very welcome in their beautiful historic home located between two of the famous churches fronting the bay.... More

Everything about this place is amazing...Where do we begin? The hosts Willem and Mel are so kind and personable, you feel like you have known them all of your life. Max the dog is a sweet addition to their family. The grounds are immaculate, the home is spotlessly clean, the linens and towels are 5 star plus and the breakfast... More

My husband and I took 3 elderly family members for a 2 night's stay. It was a "match made in heaven." We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The accommodations, the fantastic breakfasts and the hospitality were great!

Nestled between two of the three churches, this B&B is in a fantastic location to explore Mahone Bay and stay away from the main busy-ness. From the first moment of our arrival, Willem and Mel made us feel comfortable and welcome. We were delighted to hear the history of this beautiful house. This original structure from the 1800s pre-dated the... More

Will and Mel are wonderful hosts with a really homey home. And Max the dog was an instant hit with the kids. Breakfast was fantastic and they were kind enough to accommodate our son's allergies. Also one of the few places welcoming to kids in the area. Located just a minute's drive out of the main patch of business in... More

THIS place is THE place to stay in Nova Scotia! We spent a week touring NS and Fisherman's Daughter was an absolute haven. Of all the places I have stayed, hands down, this was my favorite... we only wished we had skipped our other stops and went straight there! Melanie and Willem are truly amazing people with personalities as warm... More
