My mother and I travelled through Nova Scotia and PEI for two weeks in June, in some of the worst vacation weather we've ever experienced: rain, wind and chill for 2 weeks straight. By the time we arrived at Azelia Farmhouse I had come down with my first cold in years - and it was a doozie. Mary Pat met us as we drove in the yard, and immediately extended such warmth and hospitality, it just seemed to cut right through the bad weather. I felt better the moment I met her. After declining her kind offer of tea and dessert in favour of an early bed time, Mary Pat recommended a 'hot soak' in the tub of one of her other guest rooms - that was unoccupied that night (our room only had a shower vs. bathtub), along with a hot lemon drink to help make me feel better. This is service far above and beyond anything I'd have expected of a B&B host. We stayed in the Bees's suite, which is actually 2 adjoining rooms that share a roomy bathroom. All the amenities were available - TV's in each room, coffee and tea-making facilities, as well as early morning coffee or tea made and delivered outside our room with the morning newspaper. The breakfast, complete with home baking, was hot and delicious. The farmhouse is situated just outside Antigonish (if you're traveling using a GPS, select "Antigonish County" vs. Antigonish before typing in the address - it'll take you right to the door) overlooking a lovely field with horses - and a night view of the lights of Antigonish in the distance. Lovely, homey B&B, hosted by one of the most lovely people we've met anywhere. Thank you for a terrific stay at Azelia, Mary Pat and Al.
