Was the best B&B, beds so comfortable and outside of the city with such a warm country feel, Ann and Larry were so very helpful, cant brag enough about them both. They also helped us with choices and arrangements to stay for the rest of our trip, We highly recommend we stayed 5 nights and couldn't of been more pleased... More

We did a 10-day trip to Halifax, South Shore, Bay Of Fundy and Cape Breton, and Truro was on the route. What a find! Lovely hosts, genuinely friendly even though we rolled in late! It was the best breakfast I have ever had at a B&B. Eggs, bacon, tomato, and as someone said before, homemade goodies - even stewed rhubarb... More

We did a one-week trip to Halifax and Cape Breton, and needed to fly home the next morning. We did not want the anticlimactic feeling of staying in a generic airport hotel, so we figured Truro was doable. What a find! It was the best breakfast of the whole trip. She gave us a choice of various hot meals or... More

Stayed one night before our flight home from Halifax airport and it was an excellent choice. Ann & Larry made us feel so welcome, their house is beautiful and well appointed, and they were extremely accommodating as we had to sort out the contents of our cases. They let us do this downstairs to save lugging everything upstairs which was... More

Thank you Larry and Anne for a wonderful visit. Your home was incredible. You made us feel so welcome. It was a welcomed break in the middle of our pan-Nova Scotia travels. We are already excited about our next visit. We stayed in the master suite, which was a real treat. Your gardens are beautiful and the views into woods... More

This B & B is not in Truro! Really, not even close. It is about 15 minutes away. At check in I met the owners and inquired where Truro was and he noted "it was just a few miles away". We wanted to be in Truro to get up early to see the tide changes. I said I would check... More

You contacted us on the day of your original reservation and asked if we could change the booking to the next day. Although you were within our 72 hour cancellation policy we did not charge for that night but re booked for the following day When you arrived on the new chosen day you commented on our B & B...

Our room was very spacious. We had an excellent rest. The breakfast was hot and tasted great. We felt very much at home. Our host Ann and Larry were gracious hosts. We were made to feel welcome from the onset and when we left felt like we were leaving friends. These are two people that are in the right business.... More

Anna and Larry are great hosts. Their home is spotless and the breakfasts are delicious. They are very knowledgeable and can help you find the activities you are looking for. Try the Nook and Cranny for dinner in Truro. Also try the tidal bore rafting. Tidal Bore adventure rafting (Capt Morgan) did a great job.
