We stayed in the Wedgewood room for 5 nights. This was our first time at a B&B and it’s definitely very different from staying at a hotel. It’s a much more personal experience and you truly feel like you are guests in someone’s home, which has many positives but can also be a bit of an adjustment if this is... More

Great character home in good location close to downtown Sydney. Rooms were a good size with private bathrooms. Hosts Connie and Rick are a wealth of knowledge, warm and gracious too. We really enjoyed our lively conversations with them over a great breakfast. They've been at this a while, and I'm sure can intuit guests needs and wants pretty well.

Really a beautiful home and lovely friendly couple who made us feel so welcome. Breakfast was 1st rate as was the help they gave on what to see in their area. We would recommend this B&B to friends and family any time!

Stayed one night here in Sydney Nova Scotia on the 20th March 2016. Rick and Connie were very accommodating hosts after a little hiccup on arrival as we didn't have a reservation as we were not sure how far we would be able to drive that day. As it turned out we were the first guests of the season. Turned... More

From the moment Rick picked us up at the airport to the packed breakfast we took to go when we had to leave, we felt cared for and had an excellent experience being hosted in this lovely B&B. Comfortable rooms, great food and friendly hosts.

Located in a quiet neighborhood but close to all attractions and within walking distance of downtown Sydney, this is the perfect place to stay. The hosts are so friendly and welcoming, and Connie is an absolute fountain of information! The house is charmingly furnished with antiques and one can see the TLC the owners give to the home. The breakfasts... More

We are new to B&B's and were a little hesitant about the experience. Rick and Connie made us feel welcomed right away and offered us much help in planning out our trip. The hydrangea room where we stayed was nice and has its own ensuite. We would recommend this place to family and friends.

Very comfortable, clean and a gourmet breakfast. Hosts, Connie and Rick, are welcoming. Breakfast provides opportunities for interesting conversation between guests and hosts . They are knowledgable and give good suggestions for travel in the area. Easy walking distance to downtown and dinner. A good place to stay in Sydney!
