The Hostess: Kelly was so very kind and knowledgeable about the community/area,her attention to every single detail, small and large, just blew us away!! She has great stories... More

Our one-night stay at Phoenix Hollow was a very fortunate happenstance. We added a stop in Windsor to our Nova Scotia itinerary kind of by dumb luck. But lucky we were. We almost missed staying at this magnificent old home and meeting Kelly, the delightful owner and host of this fine establishment. The home's Victorian craftsmanship has been preserved and... More

We spent five nights in this lovely historical home! Our host was wonderful - friendly, outgoing, informative as well as a wonderful artist. We enjoyed coming back to the ambiance and warmth of the house and finished off our day with a Sherry and cookie, graciously provided by Kelly!! We have never encountered anything like that before. The rooms were... More

Phoenix Hollow host, Kelly Mitchelmore, is a talented painter whose creative, artistic touches can be seen and experienced throughout her B & B. Kelly is as open and friendly as her paintings. The two guest rooms make for an intimate setting. It gives travelers an opportunity to meet and talk without feeling crowded. Kelly provides an optional breakfast menu, which... More

This is an outstanding B&B in all respects. The owner/operator, Kelly Mitchelmore, is an artist/designer, but more importantly is a most helpful and gracious hostess. This luxurious property is extremely well outfitted and is located in close proximity to restaurants and the waterfront Clearly, this is a five star accommodation.

My husband and I were looking for lodging for the second half of our trip to Nova Scotia, but the Digby Rat Race had taken over all the lodging, we thought, until we found Phoenix Hollow by chance, and were lucky enough to get in on the coattails of a cancellation.

I couldn't have asked for a more comfortable room in a lovely Victorian home with all modern amenities. The bed was perfect, and all the extra touches like the coffee maker, cookies, warm cosy robes made us feel coddled and at home.u Breakfast choices were delicious with a large selection of teas, good coffee and homemade jams.
