This was the best b&b my wife and I stayed in during our 28 day trip to eastern Canada. John and Denise couldn't do enough for us. Every time we came back to the home they were there to ask us if there was anything we wanted. They served us tea and biscuits in the evening. We were made to... More

We had the good fortune to stay in the garden cottage at the rear of the home, and would heartily recommend it if you prefer quiet, privacy and the ability to stick to your own schedule. This is a self contained unit that includes everything you need to make your own breakfasts and snacks (although we did miss out on... More

John and Denise were amazing hosts. They made us feel more like old friends than guests. The house is lovely, spotlessly clean. John's breakfasts were delicious and his blueberry muffins second to none! Great attention to detail. Always offering to make us tea or coffee and providing ice for our G & Ts! Denise was very knowledgeable on local history... More

Everything that has been said about Heart's Desire is true. John and Denise are excellent hosts and they made our 4 day stay very worth while. If you are a light sleeper, it would be better to request a room at the rear of the house as the traffic noise can be disturbing, despite the fact that Mahone Bay only... More

We stayed at close to 30 different B & B summer from Manitoba to Newfoundland. The BEST hosts by far were Denise & John Perry at Heart's Desire Bed and Breakfast. There were times this summer where we encountered awkward, even disconnected hosts. They would disappear after showing us our room and didn't even bother to socialize after serving us... More

This was our first experience at a B&B and thanks to Denise and John, we are hooked! Both of our hosts were absolutely awesome, from the moment we arrived till the day we left (7 days) we felt as if our comfort and happiness was their number one priority! Every morning we were treated to hot coffee or tea in... More

This was a lovely bed and breakfast. The home is beautiful, and the rooms very clean. There are two lounges to unwind in apart from the bedroom. I felt very at home. The hosts, John and Denise were warm and friendly. I felt like I was a family guest, not a patron. I would highly recommend this place for any... More

The hosts are just the most loveliest people with an amazing sense of humour. The house was more than clean and we could have stayed there for weeks! Mahone bay is a lovely place and you definitely have to stay with them! Thanks Again for all. You made our trip sooo much nicer and we hope to come back one... More

Working in the accommodation industry for many years has afforded me the opportunity to experience an array of holiday stays. This B&B is exactly as advertised. My 19 year old daughter and I stayed here, on our trip from BC to the Maritime provinces. The location is direct water view, steps from shopping and dining, easy short drives to explore... More
