You cant describe the feeling you get watching the tide roll in off the Bay of Fundy at this location. The front lawn is right there on the river. Catherine greeted us at the door, took us to our room[large and comfortable] and recommended a place for dinner. Warren served a filling breakfast of eggs, toast and fruit. We got... More

Location, location, location! Right on the shore of the Shubenacadie River by the Bay of Fundy. Great views, from the chairs overlooking the river and from the room windows. Very nice host. Super clean. Good breakfast. Quiet and peaceful.

What a charming B&B! Our host Warren was wonderful. He provided great suggestions, including driving down to Burntcoat Head Park to see the tides. Spectacular. The house has 3 rooms available, each with a bit of a view. But the real view was from the Adirondack chairs in the front yard high about the Bay of Fundy. You could visually... More

We stayed one night in late July 2016 on the first floor. No one used the B&B living room which was outside our room, so that wasn't a problem at all. Both upstairs rooms were occupied but we didn't hear any noise at all. Our room was clean, attractively decorated and modern, the bed very comfortable. It had everything we... More

We spent the night at this B&B and were very happy with it. We had not stayed in a B&B before, so this was an experiment for us and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was great. Warren was very helpful in giving tips about where to... More

We stumbled upon Cresthaven late one afternoon, looking for a place for the night. I wish we could have spent our whole two weeks in NS, staying there. Warren was an interesting, informative host, and the breakfast he made for us was perfect. The room we stayed in, The Eagle's Nest(?) was beautiful, serene and welcoming. We looked out over... More

We were two couples traveling together and stayed at Cresthaven for one night after spending a couple of days in Cape Breton Island. This is a very unique destination and highly recommended. Warren was a gracious host upon our arrival and gave us all of the local suggestions for our less than 24 hour visit. Every suggestion he made was... More
