We were traveling back to Halifax from the Cabot Trail and were lucky to find this B&B! Darrell and Judy are lovely people, well traveled and have great stories! The house is very quaint, peaceful and walking distance to restaurants. Breakfast was perfect! Thank you so much and we will be back!

Very kind and hospitable hosts. Comfortable and charming accommodations. Darrell and Judy were very accommodating of my schedule and my privacy. Also thought the breakfasts were just right. Stayed here five nights in total.

Me and my boyfriend stayed one night on our way to Halifax. We stayed in the room on the ground floor. It was not the biggest we ever stayed in but it was comfortable. The owners are very nice people and it is definitely a nice place to stay.

We stayed here two nights - on our way to and from Cape Breton. We stayed in room #1 on the main floor both nights and had an excellent sleep. Though the room may be small compared to some, it had enough space for what we needed. You do have to be comfortable with your partner though! I had to... More

This was the first place we stayed during a 4-day trip to Cape Breton, and it was lovely. Our hosts Judy and Darryl were friendly and informative, our room clean and cozy, and the breakfast fresh and well prepared. Thank you for making us feel welcome.

I stayed at this B&B in mid August while travelling through Nova Scotia. It was a very cozy and charming place with the friendliest couple you could ever meet. Great food and company just the kind of place to stop in at and rest your weary feet after a days travel in Cape Breton. We were very happy with our... More

Judy and Darryl were very welcoming and provided an excellent place to stay for us. We were able to meet other wonderful travelers and get advice from them. The breakfast was very good. The rooms were comfortable and the location was convenient. We definitely recommend this place for others. Also a place I would consider staying when I visit again!

Decent breakfast. Rooms were quiet. Just what we needed. Shared bathroom. Hosts were very nice. We were happy. The driveway was a little tricky for our bikes as it's on a very steep hill. ....... .............

As we were driving into Port Hawkesbury we decided to stop for the night, and were happy that Daryll and Judy had a spot for us at the last minute. Our host showed us our room and suggested a nice restaurant. Slept well and enjoyed breakfast before we were on the road again. Gracious hosts, and a clean, comfy bed.... More
