Recently, we visited this delightful Colonial Home in New Brunswick, Canada. We have a cottage in Northern Maine and New Brunswick is a lovely and welcoming province to visit and spend some time. Our hostess and host, Elaine and Stephen, were welcoming and extremely interesting. Our accommodation was most comfortable with the ample and tasteful breakfast an absolute treat. Elaine makes pies, jams, relishes, etc., etc. all to die for! You won't be disappointed...enjoy!
We stayed here for two nights and felt very welcome. The breakfast was an amazing spread with home made everything from breads and jams to sausages and maple syrup! The room was clean and the hospitality was top notch! Location was great also.
We were visiting Hopewell Rock and needed accommodations for one night before heading back to Halifax. We called up and thankfully there is room available. We arrive and it is like we have known Elaine for years- so friendly and welcoming. The house is lovely and the rooms beautiful. The breakfast was fantastic with bacon and eggs, pancakes, her homemade jam, fresh home grown fruit, their own maple syrup and honey-- can't thank Elaine enough for the lovely stay, even though it was a short one night stay.
Fundy Park 1000k: About a kilometre beyond S&Cs at the crest of a hill was the sign for Peck Colonial House. It was a gravel driveway with enough rise that I struggled to keep the bike upright whilst keeping my eye on a dog who was barking and making its way toward me. To my right was a gentleman tending a flower bed. Assuming him to be the proprietor I asked if there was a bed available. He apologised saying that the B&B was closed for the day as they had a family commitment in the afternoon. I asked if there was any chance of a meal. He told me to go around to the back, knock on the door and speak to his wife.The dog by now seemed quite friendly so I wheeled the Ritchey to the back of the house, leaned it up against a garden bench and with a knock on the screen door, I was invited in. Explaining my predicament, she made me a ham and cheese sandwich and brought me a glass of orange juice but unfortunately she couldn't offer me a bed. Whilst I ate, we talked about "the ride" and when asked told her that I was a physician working at the QE2 in Halifax. She then told a story, complete with photos from her iPad, about her elderly but "sharp as a tack" mother who had fainting spells requiring a pacemaker. After a while her husband and the dog came in and a grandchild and elderly woman appeared and joined in the general conversation. The cat and dog were great friends, he had bees on the property, he had not lost any of his blueberry crop to the frost a few weeks earlier and they grow all their fruit and vegetables for her pies and pickled vegetables. Mrs Holmström asked when I thought Anne might be here to collect me. After 5, I thought, which was when the family had planned to leave for the gathering. "Why don't I make up a bed for you and I will wake you at 4:45. If your wife is not here at 5, you can sit in my husband's easy chair out in the garage and wait for her." She disappeared for a while and later lead me upstairs to a room where I slept until she woke me. As they were preparing to leave, I asked "How much do I owe you?" "Nothing. Would you like some milk and cookies?" she replied. Appreciative, I asked if I could buy a couple of her pies, strawberry/ rhubarb and blueberry, which she sold to me for $20.00. Accompanied by her and with my milk and cookies, I made my way out to the shade of the garage and the easy chair. As I watched them leave, I levered back the easy chair, settled in and gave thanks for my good fortune.…
This B&B has cozy rooms and excellent breakfast! She served pancakes, toast, muffins, assorted jams, eggs and bacon all homemade and delicious. The view of the marshlands and bay across the road were great too! I enjoyed meeting their dog and cats and wandering around their farm that includes chickens and bee hives. There are horses down the road that can be observed from the farm. This was such a relaxing place to start the day and come back to after a day of hiking around the Hopewell rocks and Fundy national park! My sister and I enjoyed ourselves here.
