Very friendly and accommodating hosts provide a very comfortable visit. Great bed, quiet location. Excellent breakfast, and opportunity to eat at Bing's Eatery (their local restaurant). The emphasis on local foods is important to us and the community.

We stayed here last summer and felt compelled to write a review of this place - it's a diamond. Kelly and Danny run a restaurant around the corner during the summer and they have a great victorian style house where they run a b&b. When we were there, there was another very nice family staying in the other rooms (I... More

We spent one night at Tidal Life - our first night in Nova Scotia. It is a beautiful house and we were very comfortable here. Kelly and Danny were great hosts, we also recommend dinner at the restaurant (Bing's). Special thanks for getting up at 6am to cook us breakfast before our early morning rafting trip - we really appreciated... More

Just visited Tidal Life - it's a great quiet place to relax, see the sites (especially the Tidal Bore) and enjoy Nova Scotia. Kelly and Danny are amazing hosts who not only know a lot about the local community and surrounding Nova Scotia sites and experiences, but who are both amazing chefs (visit Bings for amazing local farm fresh slow...

This B&B is in a great location for exploring the Bay of Fundy- which is super cool and worth a visit! Kelly suggested we come for dinner and we were so glad we did, they operate a restaurant close to the B&B which is fantastic!! Our room had 2 bunk beds and we were very comfortable (family of 4)- everything... More

This B&B is second to none. We visited with two families of 4, and booked all three rooms, so we had the whole place to ourselves. The heritage home was furnished with lots of antiques which matched the century home, and the interior was decorated in a welcoming Maritime style. The rooms and facilities were clean and tidy. The host... More

The B&B is in a beautifully restored and decorated old captain's house. Our room (the Blue room) was comfortable, clean and quiet. I could go on about the house (better than most B&Bs), but what really impressed us about our stay was the proprietor. He's a friendly, interesting guy and an excellent ambassador for the local area and we thoroughly... More
