We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Halifax and SeaWatch was perfect. The room was comfortable with a great view and deck right across from the water. The view was outstanding with all the windows and even skylights just made it feel huge. Separate entrance made it very convenient and I didn't have to feel like I was bothering the host.... More

Found this quaint & rustic gem with lots of nautical memorabilia overlooking the beautiful bay within 20 minutes drive of Halifax. Our hostess was very helpful & friendly & cooked us a delicious home made breakfast. Definitely recommended.

This B&B is in a great location - close to Halifax and an easy drive down to Peggy's Cove. Elaine and Stan were great hosts and very personable. Elaine had good suggestions on where to eat and how to avoid traffic. The room was beautifully decorated with a nautical feel. We stayed in the larger room (Ship's Wheel). The view... More

Just returned from 7 wonderful nights at the Sea Watch! Elaine and Stan are the perfect hosts, and we felt completely at home. We stayed in the Ships Wheel room and it was lovely and spacious. Enjoyed having the kitchenette as we often had our big meal late and only wanted to peck at dinner time. Elaine placed a little... More

Elaine is so personable and she and Stan had some great ideas where to go in the Halifax area. Our room/suite had everything we needed while travelling. Lots of great stories about this B & B and the owners. Loved the Halifax area.

We had a wonderful stay at SeaWatch B&B, the view was perfect with great nautical ambiance. We enjoyed our night out on their pier watching a sailing regatta. In the morning we were served our breakfast in these wonderful shells. A great experience and worth a stay. Thanks Elaine for your wonderful hospitality. Hope to visit again soon.

We're so glad that we chose to stay at SeaWatch. It was right on the water, within view of Halifax. Elaine and Stan made us feel so welcome. To say that the room had a nautical theme is an understatement...It was like actually staying on a pirate ship. The details were incredible! Every time we came back to the room,... More

If you enjoy a down-to-earth experience by the seaside this IS the place. Comfortable room, private patio overlooking the entry to the Halifax port, & dock from which to fish, if that's your wish. Watching a spectacular sunrise across the bay to the southeast, you can imagine yourself in a quiet wilderness; turn to the north & the lights of... More

If you love all things nautical, this is the place for you! The SeaWatch is in a convenient location to downtown Halifax and to neighboring Peggy's Cove, while far enough off the beaten path to provide beautiful views, along with peace and quiet. Stan and Elaine are gracious hosts. Stan greeted us and carried both our bags up the stairs... More
