Carwarden is a rambling, charmingly old-fashioned house tucked among the farms of the Annapolis Valley. Mary is its charmingly old-fashioned proprietor. She seems severe at first, but once you catch on to the dry humor, chatting with her is a pleasure. Ask about the history of the house and its period furnishings: Mary has a wealth of stories to tell! Her knowledge of the area is thorough, so when she makes a recommendation, listen up. She pointed us towards the best places to view the Fundy tides, as well as several good restaurants.
Room: We stayed in the "Duchess" room. As you might expect from the dimensions of the house, the guest rooms are enormous. Every single piece of furniture is a beautiful antique. The occasional passing car can be heard, but they were far too infrequent to disturb us. The WC portion of the bathroom is both vintage and functional, right down to the two-tap sink. The modern shower opens directly into the bedroom - an odd arrangement, and the only break in period decor, but it worked just fine for us. We used the Wi-Fi with no problems.
Breakfast: Wow! Like everything else at Carwarden, breakfast is old-fashioned, and what could be better than that? Mary's Eggs Benedict are the best I've ever enjoyed, by a large margin, but she only makes them when the breakfast crowd is small. Still, have no fear: the muffins, waffles, granola, applesauce, etc. are all home-made, and all excellent.
