We recently had the pleasure of 3 lovely days at The Barn at the Point B&B and Cafe in Gilberts Cove, just south of Digby, N.S. The set up is unique in that the "Bed" part of the B&B is located in the newly converted farmhouse - the rooms are lovely, each tastefully decorated, the beds inviting and comfortable under beautiful quilts characteristic of those made in the area, and each room complete with its own 4 piece ensuite bathroom, bar fridge, beverage centre, wi-fi and satellite TV. Our room looked out over "The Barn's" garden and rural property, which stretches farther than the eye can see, giving a sense of tranquility that comes with such privacy. We thoroughly enjoyed walking the trails through the fields and woodlands of the 90 acre property down onto the beach of St Mary's Bay. The "Breakfast" part of the B&B is served in the Cafe in The Barn adjacent to the farmhouse, which is a fabulous, fully equipped great room/function hall where our gracious hosts, Phil and Moira, serve breakfast (complete with world famous Digby scallops! and other hearty and delicious homemade fare and fresh baked goodies) and lunch daily to their B&B guests, local "regulars", and others who wander in. Fabulous food, luxurious accommodations, and the warmth of Phil and Moira's hospitality, and did I mention the Darts?! - we'll definitely be back!!!
