“Great B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Harborview was recommended by Vistors Center in Digby, NS.... Owner was extremely courteous. Accomodations were clean and well appointed. Breakfast was generous and well prepared. Everyone who worked at the Harborview were extremely helpful and gave us lots of suggestions of place to see. We would rank this B&B as one of the best that we had stayed at.

We were fortunate to find space for our first Wharf Rat Rally, in nearby Digby, at the Harbourview Inn. Everything was great!! The Inn is beautifully decorated with antiques and well cared for. The room we had was comfortable, exceptionally clean and quiet and best of all for us, non-smoking. Breakfast was delicious and the entire staff were friendly, prompt, and very helpful. We enjoyed our stay so much that we booked for next year before we left!

Harbourview Inn is located 6 km from Digby, in the very peaceful Smiths Cove: you can see deers wandering in the grass overlooking the bay in the morning.
It's out of the beaten path but very close to the tourist village of Digby (you need the car to go to Digby).
Very high quality, beautifull clean and well furnished room (the only downside was not having fridge inside our room), this Inn is associated with UCI (Unique Country Inn).
Owners were very welcoming and helpful: we booked the whalewatching tour through them, avoiding time-wasting.
Really recommendable!

so you cannot walk to a restaurant. Nice view, but difficult to find. Great breakfast - blueberry pancakes, sausage and fresh fruit! Wonderful breezes! Had we stayed longer, we would have enjoyed using the pool.

Very quaint house, well maintained, the staff was very friendly and gave us great reco's for whale watching (Brier Island), restaurants, and other b&b's for our trip (the Train Station in Tatamagouche). Darren was particularly helpful, both on the phone and in person, helping us with our travel timing and logistics.

Breakfast was on a lovely sunny indoors porch with eggs and ham / sausage (different each day), toast, cereals, juices, and friendly wait staff - more than expected. Air conditioners in all the rooms, we had the nice big corner room upstairs (actually a 2-room suite) which was perfect for our family of four, and had a nice breeze blowing through.

Added benefit was access to a large outdoor pool a stone's throw down the road, kids loved that!

Great place to stay if you're doing the Brier Island whale watching, which we highly recommend!

Really nice setting. Great staff. Owners very pleasant and helpful. Perfect jumping off point for a whale watching trip or simply swimming, reading and relaxing. Breakfast is included - and excellent!
Would definitely recommend and stay there again.

This inn is a convenient location for anyone wishing to participate in the many activities near Digby (whale watching, etc.). We stayed in suite 21 in the Winchester House and thoroughly enjoyed it. The establishment is very clean and comfortable. The hosts are very accomodating and the breakfast excellent.
