My husband and I spent 8 nights here and our stay was absolutely perfect! Maarten and Nelly are warm, welcoming, fun hosts who make you feel like family. In their guest book I wrote that this was "Home Away from Home" but since the couple who stayed there the same time as we did used that as the title of their review, I'm going to say it's Better Than Home! Why? Because the breakfasts were the most scrumptious gourmet creations! Nelly and Maarten make their own yogurt, goat cheese, and pastries. Everything is prepared from scratch with no additives and served with lots of morning cheer. Throughout our stay they made us feel like old friends they were so happy to have visiting. Our suite was quite lovely with a good size sitting area (couch, chair, coffee table) and queen size bed and bureau. The whole house was immaculate and impeccably decorated. We especially enjoyed our evening cold drink on the deck surrounded by potted flowers and shaded by a big apple tree. The house is situated about a mile outside downtown on the edge of beautiful green farmland and within minutes of the Tidal Bore and main highways. So you have the quiet and beauty of the country but easy access to grocery stores, gas, and main roads. My husband and I agree we dont know how anyone could find fault with Bakers Chest. Nelly and Maartan and their lovely home made our vacation in Nova Scotia truly memorable.
They are all lovely. Depends on what size bed you want since each room has a different size bed.
