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

Gorgeous spot overlooking the bay and a beautiful old house! I loved our big, bright bathroom and sitting areas.Our hosts, John & Denise were very nice and helpful. They were very accommodating with a gluten sensitivity & carrying a lot of luggage for us. lol.

We stayed two nights at this lovely B&B and we were well taken care of by our wonderful hosts, Denise and John. It is a beautiful spot overlooking the bay, close too all the nice restaurants and gift shops. The community was well decorated with the scarecrows so it was a good time to visit the area. The next time... More

Went to Mahone Bay for the Oct 4 to 6 scarecrow festival. We stayed at this very nice B/B, which is run by a super nice couple. The place is cleaner than clean, lovely spot over looking the Bay with a great outdoor deck to sit on, drink local whine and watch life go by. Was a fabulous stay, A1... More

Denise and John were the best hosts - they were very hospitable and made us feel very welcome. Offers of tea and cold drinks in the afternoon were a nice extra touch. And John carrying our suitcase to our room. Room was very comfortable even though modest in appointments and the bathroom was spacious. The whole house was truly spotless... More

Great location - short stroll from town. Lovely home and view from front porch. We had the Bay room which was comfortable and clean. The bathroom was in the hall but bathrobes were provided and the bathroom itself was very clean and large. Breakfast was plentiful. John and Denise, the hosts, were very friendly and helpful. They really made our... More

We stayed a night here after cycling from Bridgewater. Beautiful location, short walk to the main restaurants and shopping. The hosts, Denise and John, were awesome! They had a great sense of humour, they were friendly, and they were very helpful. Breakfast was delicious! Yogurt and fresh fruit with croissants and a variety of local jams. Then eggs, bacon and...

What a gem! Friendly, clean, excellent breakfast and friendly hosts. Coffee arrives miraculously at the right time in the morning. The bathroom was delightful. WiFi worked. Comfy bed. Good value and Mahone Bay is so, so beautiful.
