We were delighted to spend 2 nights at this wonderful place. The Vespers gives you a Whole experience - beautiful decor, comfortable room, delicious food, incredible view. Joyce was an exceptional hostess and cook, and she knows a lot about the area. I hated to leave.

What an amazing bed and breakfast! The large old Victorian home has been turned into a showplace! Joyce, our hostess, was kind, helpful, and a wonderful cook! We slept in the Aberdeen Room which is a second floor corner room with windows looking out 2 different sides of the house to the ocean. We watched lobster boats, a Newfoundland Ferry,... More

This really is the only place to stay if you find yourself here. Joyce is wonderful and the house is fascinating. A great staging post or even somewhere to base yourself when you come and do the trail.

There may not be many good reasons to go to Glace Bay, but if one is determined, this certainly has to be the best place to stay. It is a huge, three story, Victorian era home that has been painstakingly restored. It is located on the coast and the views are remarkable. The rooms are named after area mines and... More

A beautiful B & B in a historic house! We had planned to stay in the Donkin room, but as they were only just opening for the season, they upgraded us to the Passchendaele Suite, which was magnificently large. Breakfast was delicious, and the owner was very kind!

My firend and I stayed here for two nights and it was an amazing place, a beautifully restored convent perched by a cliff overlooking the ocean.

We stayed here for two nights during a motorcycle trip out of Michigan. We had the New Aberdeen Mine Room #2 and it really does have the best view of the ocean! We could even hear the surf at night. It felt like we were the only guests there since it was so quiet! Everything is so tastefully decorated and... More

We had a great stay in this beautiful converted convent. The rooms, other facilities and the views were amazing. We had a great time as well with our wonderful host Joyce -- breakfasts were plentiful and home-cooked, and the home-made jams were lovely. Remember to let Joyce know if you have any food sensitivities. A great surprise in Glace Bay.

I was invited to a wedding in Glace Bay & thought, "why not, I've never been there". The bride booked this B&B for me and I was not disappointed! Joyce has it decorated in period pieces through out and the charm is the first thing you notice. A group of us attending the wedding were staying here & the huge... More
