After reading Trip Advisor reviews, I booked six nights at Fairhaven for my mother (86 years young) and myself. We were extremely pleased. The house and gardens are so lovely--and it was so nice to stay in a home. Ian and Leslie have two upstairs bedrooms they use for the B&B--additionally there is a separate lounge (with TV) for each of the bedrooms. We stayed in the Twin room, which has a huge exclusive bathroom, across the hall--which looks out on the lake and has a fantastic spa tub. Since the house is right on the Lake the views are incredible. (I am going to try to post some pictures, but I sometimes have computer issues!!!)
Best of all are the hosts--Leslie and Ian. Ian is the chief cook and bottle washer--and he is a total delight. Mom and I really felt like we were visiting friends. The location, in Dartmouth (just outside Halifax) was perfect, as you are close to everything, but in lovely country setting. And the people in Nova Scotia could not be more friendly--is is a great place to visit.
