“Great location, great cottages, super service”
Reviewed October 22, 2009

We have stayed at cottages at The Anchorage House for over a month each of the last four summers. The location, on St Margaret's Bay, is ideal as you are thirty minutes from Halifax and within half an hour of Chester, Mahone Bay and the famous town of Lunenburg.
Each cottage is supplied with everything you need for a long or short stay and each is meticulously cleaned by the friendly staff before, during and after your stay.
Peter and his staff answer all your questions. The salt water pool is great on the hot days of summer. And for us, the great thing is that well-behaved dogs are accepted which is a real plus as many of us like to travel with our pets.
We can thoroughly recommend a stay at The Anchorage whether you stay in the inn or in the various-sized cottages.

Best place on the east coast of Nova Scotia for beauty, peacefulness, location, etc. This is especially true if you have family/children. Chris and Peter are excellent hostess and host. They go well beyond the expected. I have stayed there with both my children and grandchildren and will continue to stay whenever in NS. When the kids are safe and happy. I am happy.

I call it the other Peggy's cove because it is better that everyone (masses) go there to visit and I can return to this quiet place to relax.

My 89 year old mother & I spent the night with the expectation that we would get breakfast & we didn't. I had to leave the room keys in a mailbox the next morning because the office was closed, it was 8:00a.m. The website did not say that breakfast wasn't included but it does now because I sent an e-mail to Canada Select to report him. The whole experience was very shady. I don't like people that are untrustworthy. I thought all people in Nova Scotia were honest, apparently not. We stayed at two other B&B's with breakfast & great hospitality. I would never recommend this place because of the way we were treated for the price of $111.87 per night. There are so many more places to stay!
