Truly a quiet haven with fabulous breakfasts. Great bed and great sheets. And gracious hosts! They provided early coffee and there are local trails for strolling. Will recommend to anyone looking for peace, quiet and a great beach near-by.

This was one of the best places we've stayed for B and B in Nova Scotia. I wish we'd known how beautiful a place this was and we'd have stayed longer. The gardens were large, right down to the river and had areas left for wildlife, and great areas to sit in at different points of the day. The house... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay at this gem on the river, in an atmosphere of complete relaxation. We were in the dormer room, which is comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was delicious with varied offerings. Their service is impeccable and relaxed - they make you feel completely at ease.

We stayed in the area to hike a trail in our beautiful province of Nova Scotia. Alf and Connie offer a beautiful peaceful place to unwind and relax. Walking into the Blue Room, where we stayed, was like seeing a room in "Better Homes and Gardens" magazine! Everytging was immaculate, and comfortable. Breakfasts were great!

We very much enjoyed our 2 night stay at Old Riverside Lodge. We had the River Room and were able to sleep with the windows open and hear the babbling river. Everything was clean, well tended and nicely decorated. The hosts were knowledgeable about the area and very friendly. Not having the bathroom en suite was no problem at all.... More

While traveling through Nova Scoria on a recent long weekend with friends we book a night at this B & B. Alf & Connie were the most charming host. The grounds were beautiful and so peaceful. Breakfast of blueberry pancakes and all the trimmings was so yummy. Alf even made homemade walking sticks for all the guests to enjoy and... More

We were on a "genealogy tour" and wanted a B&B in the center of one of our search areas. Alf & Connie were very welcoming and helpful in our research. The Lodge setting is wonderfully landscaped with a great view. The rooms are immaculate, warm and very comfortable. The wifi was necessary for our research and much appreciated. Breakfast was...

I spent 2 delightful nights with Connie and Alf last weekend. They are delightful hosts and I truly felt at home. Breakfast exceeded my expectations, my room was lovely (I chose the River Room), and all guest spaces were perfect. They have done an amazing job restoring the lodge. It is very large, and yet maintains a cozy, classic charm.... More
