Fred and Marion were gracious people to open their house to us. Once we started talking with them, it felt like we had known them a long time. They gave great recommendations about places to see and where to eat. Marion's breakfast was the best. Her homemade peach jam was to die for. We hope to return to their B... More

Fred and Marion are wonderful hosts who make you feel like part of their family. This is the second time I have stayed at Blockhouse Hill Bed and Breakfast, and I felt like I was staying with old friends. My room was quiet, clean and comfortable located next to a small sitting area to relax in at the end of... More

We had the entire top floor to ourselves. The beds were comfortable, nice linens, and very clean. We awoke to fresh coffe and tea waiting for... More

We stayed with Marion and Fred for two nights. One at the beginning of our round trip and one at the end. When we first arrived we were already greeted warmly by Fred and Marion, but when we got back the second time it already felt like coming back to see friends. These two are really great hosts, generous, helpful... More

As soon as Fred answered the door, we could tell right away we made the right choice. Marion and Fred made our stay feel like we were at home. Their home is the true flavour of the Maritimes, warm, comforting and most of all a feeling of family. Marion's Breakfast are delicious and served everyday with a warm and honest... More

Wanted to find accommodation near Alderney Landing for the ferry to Halifax and chose Blockhouse Hill because it is only a few minutes walk from the ferry. When booking, there were cordial e-mails offering assistance with aspects of holidaying in Nova Scotia. Marion's warm welcome when we arrived set the tone for a very enjoyable two-night stay. There are two... More

Traveling solo for over two weeks, my time in Halifax was something I was really looking forward to. Blockhouse Hill B&B and my hosts Fred & Marion did not let me down. Allowing strangers to stay in your home takes a lot of trust and an inviting personality. I was comforted knowing I was only a stranger for about 5... More
