My husband and I toured NB, PEI, and NS for our honeymoon and Bonshaw was probably the favorite place that we stayed. I guarantee you will not have more helpful hosts anywhere you stay: Dave and Sharon were kind, helpful but not too in-your-face about helping you plan your stay. They gave us a great map, good directions, and lent us beach chairs, cooler, and towels when we headed to the beach. Additionally, the breakfasts each day were fantastic and varied - Sharon is a truly excellent cook! At first we were intimidated because you eat with the other guests at breakfast, but it got to be a lot of fun because we shared tips each morning about great places to go.
The only thing people should know before they book is that this is NOT a historic bed and breakfast. I think from the website people maybe think otherwise, but it's just good to know ahead of time. The property consists of two buildings, the main house which is where the Mayflower suite (by far, the best room there) is and where the proprietors live, and then the secondary building that has two other rooms. The rooms are all cozy - the bathrooms are good size and everything. It's just not a historic property; although the property itself is incredibly lovely and the views are very beautiful.
The property is in the middle of the country, but it's very central to everything. I liked that it was a great location to explore the entire island, since we were interested in seeing Cavendish and Charlottetown and everything in between.
Overall, it's a great great place to stay - we even extended our stay because it was so wonderful, and cut short our time in Halifax. Great decision!
