First impression: wow, what a neat place! The Harbourview is a big, charming, old country home with easy parking, friendly service, and a great breakfast. It's away from the hustle and bustle of a busy highway and town, but close enough to easily drive into Digby for dinner. We only spent one night there but would happily have stayed for... More

The Inn was beautiful. Great, quiet location. Short drive to Digby and the ferry. Clean,comfortable and good value. Don't forget to buy some of the fruit jelly, it is amazing! I would go back and highly recommend it.

We spent two nights here while in the Digby area. The public areas are pleasant. The breakfast delicious and the breakfast room overlooks the gardens. The area around the Inn and the Inn itself are quiet. The rooms large, clean and comfortable

We spent here just 1 night a couple years ago on to catch the ferry the next early morning. Coming back now for 2 days was the right choice. A very nice place,exactly how you expect a b&b at his best. Friendly service, good homemade-style breakfast, the rooms all different but very nice. Double thumbs up!

We arrived at this B&B much later than planned. However, our host was ready for us and very attentive to our needs. He helped carry our bags upstairs, and then called a great restaurant in town to be certain they were still serving dinner. Our room was homey and very comfortable - a delightful stay in the country. Breakfast was... More

Our family stayed two nights at The Harbourview Inn and it was wonderful.. The inn is tucked away in Smith's Cove and located about 10-15 minutes from Digby. The area is picturesque and quaint. The pool and tennis courts are about a 3 minute walk and there's a road down to a relatively secluded beach area. We only saw only... More

Once again we stayed at the Harbourview Inn and this time a little longer than before. It's located in a beautiful area with lots to do and offers peace and quiet along with several amenities. We were able to bike ride, walk on the beach, enjoy the pool, go to an amusement park and last but not least enjoy a... More

Situated no more than a 15 minute car journey from Digby the Inn is in a quiet location overlooking the Bay with tennis court and swimming pool very close. The Inn itself is about 100 years old but has been upgraded over the years with various additions and is surrounded by lovely gardens which have been planted and maintained by... More

I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We have tried to up-date the Inn to provide modern conveniences for our guests without changing its original character. The two young ladies serving breakfast enjoy their work and try to provide a warm and friendly start to your day. More

We had a wonderful experience at this B&B and would reccommend it for any travelers to Nova Scotia. The Room was large, the beds were comfortable and the service was quite acceptable. The Location was relatively close to Digby and easy to find.

We spent three nights here. Darren was welcoming and gracious at reception. Our room was adequate although a comfy chair would have been nice (two hardwood chairs in the room). Breakfast was nice but not exceptional, buffet style, hot meal and also cold cereal, nothing special except for the fresh fruit plate which is a lovely touch. We happen to... More
