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.

We stayed in the Wedgewood room which was not the biggest of rooms but it was cosy, clean and full of charm. Breakfast at the big... More

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!

Connie and Rick are excellent hosts and their home is lovely. Connie is a chef who serves her breakfast as a masterpiece Rick supplies the frame in which it sits. The rooms are clean and bright and the bed very comfortable. You will love your stay here we did we had 3 great nights. Thanks Rick and Connie

Definitely paradise... My first visit to Nova Scotia and my first stay at a B&B. Sydney was snow covered, winds were blowing but I have never felt so warm and comfortable. Connie and Rick are very knowledgable hosts. Their beautiful home, delicious breakfasts and conversations all added to my experience. I am already looking forward to retuning to Sydney where...
