A lovely Swiss couple recently bought this cute B&B and it is fantastic! Every room has it's own outside entrance with parking close by. The rooms are spacious and well furnished with lovely antiques. The beds are comfortable and everything is very clean and well kept. We left the windows open as it was warm and we heard no noise...

We have been enjoying wonderful weekend escapes at the Gingerbread House for many years and just returned from our latest. We have never had one complaint about the wonderful atmosphere and hosts. The rooms are beautiful and the breakfast is to die for. We were sad to hear that Alan and Libby will no longer be playing that role and... More

Honoured to be one of the last visitors to this great B&B before new owner take over. I can only hope the new owners make their guests feel as welcome as we felt. A clean and quiet room followed by a delicious breakfast. Thanks for a great way to spend our Anniversary weekend!

My boyfriend and I spent New Years Eve in the Gaspereau Suite. The innkeeper was pleasant and helpful. When we first entered the room it smelled quite musty, there is an indoor hot tub which might contribute to the unpleasant smell. However, we had an excellent relaxing night with breakfast brought to our room at 9 am. Breakfast consisted of... More

Thanks for your comments. When first walking into that and the 3 other suites with hot-tubs you sometimes get a whiff of the chemical bromine (no chlorine) which is necessary to maintain/clean the tubs. Let me know when you return and I will see you get extra sausage :-) More

We stayed in the Annapolis suite which also had an indoor hot tub. Alan, the owner, took us through everything we needed to know as we checked in. The room was toasty (we showed up during a snow storm and stayed two nights of dropping temps and rising winds) and comfortable. The bed was too soft for our liking though.... More

the Inn is in need of a complete upgrade. The breakfast room was cold, and the breakfast minimal. The furniture in the Annapolis room is extremely old and the bed most uncomfortable. We have stayed at several B&B's that add wonderful "little extras" and charming "touches"... not so, at The Gingerbread House.

We do try to be everything to everyone but sadly cannot keep all happy - sorry. As with any property, maintenance is ongoing but a 'complete upgrade' - hardly. In winter, prior to guests arriving we set the thermostats in the rooms to 20* (70F) and the same before breakfast in the dining area. We would certainly turn it up... More

Me and my partner stayed here two weeks ago, we loved our stay in the Gaspereau suite! We were greeted my owner, Allan, and he really took the time to get to know us, where we were from, and suggested a few restaurants in town! The room itself was amazing. Never had something compare to this gorgeous suite! The breakfast,... More

Annapolis room , mould everywhere didn't use the hot tub as the cover was full of mold ..Windows were mouldy..fireplace didn't work...mould in bathroom...hair caught in spider webs behind toilet...one fan didn't work..room needs to be fitted and updated from the 80's. Bed was crap...cheap pillows and hard lumpy mattress. Would not recommend.

We were shocked when we read this tirade. How does one justify such an exaggeration of facts? Comments like "...mold everywhere" and ..."full of mold" are totally unfounded - the hot-tub cover is cleaned and dried after each use along with the tub itself. The seams on the lid have darkened after years of exposure to 39* water temp. and... More

This was our third time staying at the Gingerbread House. We stayed in the Annapolis room once again, and enjoyed the room. Alan provided a great breakfast the next morning and delivered to our room. Our hot tub was nice and clean, and it looked like a new shower had been installed. I would only suggest it may be time... More

Our entire family from Quebec stayed here during our wedding weekend. Our family pretty well took over the B&B (with the exception of one room!). The staff was amazing and made sure all of our family felt comfortable. They made sure to keep us updated on rooms and even let some of our family into their rooms early to ensure... More
