The reviews on this property range from 1 to 5 and after being there I can appreciate the reasons for both. We booked this property with the idea that it was in Halifax which is accurate but it is just off the Bedford Highway and to get to the Halifax waterfront is a 7.5 km drive. For breakfast we had the choice of 0930 or 1000 hrs. Although we had booked a couple of months prior, it was only at check-in that we learned breakfast times were consecutive, and the early times, on which our plans for the day were based, were taken. Our choice was to drop a planned excursion or skip breakfast. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating, and the property is as stated. Not mentioned is a small disappointment - there was a lovely view of the harbour until a few years ago, when a long several-storey condo was built, leaving only an Ocean Glimpse. It is a stately home, and we appreciated the warm welcome. We understand why people love it, with excellent hosts.
