“A lovely place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

I stayed at Fisherman's Daughter for four nights. The house was lovely and the breakfasts great (especially the pancakes). There is an amazing view of the bay from the B & B. Will and Melanie were great hosts. Highly recommended.

I recently stayed at the "Fisherman's Daughter" Bed and Breakfast in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. This was my second time and I was not disappointed;it was very nice last year and even better now with the improvements made over the winter. The property is located in the heart of Mahone Bay among the three churches and has a very picturesque view of the harbour. It is an easy walk into the area of shops and restaurants.
The breakfast served here is every bit as good as a "5 star" resort - many items to choose from and you place your order the night before.
The rooms are very nicely decorated and have lovely bathrooms. The grounds are impeccable.
The inkeepers, Mel and Will, go out of their way to make your stay the best it can be.
I highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast.

Room Tip: ICaptain's Room downstairs is a good size with a beautiful bathroom with a claw foot tub.

My family and I stayed at Fisherman's Daughter for one night in the triple room. The B&B is beautiful and thereally we had was really nice. We had our own bathroom and there was a water kettle and tea bags in the room so we could have something to drink at our convenience. Willem and Melanie are really nice people and made us feel very welcome. Willem cooked up a mean breakfast and they had gluten free bread which was awesome! The B&B is a short walk from downtown and right by the water so you don't need a vehicle. I definitely recommend this place.

Recently,I had the pleasure of being a guest of Will and Mel in beautiful Mahone Bay Nova Scotia.I checked in for a week and stayed over a month!The property is immaculate and nicely nestled among Mahone Bay's famous "Three Churches".A beautiful view of the bay and only a short walk to all the shops and eateries in town.Be sure to have lunch at the farmer's market.Your hosts provide all the amenities, beautiful spacious and sunlit rooms(even chocolates on your pillow.The homemade breakfasts are not only works of art , they are also delicious.Be sure to meet Max who became a close friend.I've travelled to many places around the world but have never experienced a more relaxing and totally pleasurable experience. I also met two great new friends!

the Fisherman's Daughter B&B was the best stay I have ever had! the room was bright and clean, the view and grounds were incredible and the hosts were very kind and went the extra mile in every detail. the location is wonderful and close to all the events Mahone Bay has to offer. i will tell friends and relatives about Will and Mel so they can share in this exceptional experience when they come and visit me in Mahone Bay.

Everything was nice, more than only okay. The room and especially the bathroom was very nice and cozy. And we liked the open manner and the cheerfulness of the innkeepers as well. The discussions with them and the other guests at the breakfast (also very good!) was interesting and funny at the same time.

My husband and I had a fantastic time at the Fisherman's Daughter B&B. The location in Mahone Bay is very convenient, the room we stayed in was lovely (I especially enjoyed the Victorian claw foot tub) and the entire house is very clean and well cared for by the owners, Will and Mel. They made us feel so welcome that it was like we were old friends who had come to stay for a visit. We enjoyed their company and the breakfasts were wonderful each morning. This is an exceptional B&B and anyone who stays there is in for a treat! We look forward to visiting there again!
