This place looks just average from the outside, but the room was very clean, outfitted with everything you might need and the breakfast was excellent with lots of everything. Service was very friendly and the views from the room were amazing across the harbour watching the boats come and go throughout the day and early evening.

We had to leave early to get the 8am Bay ferry. This B&B was in downtown Digby and just a couple miles to the ferry. They have a modern annex in the back overlooking the harbor. It was a short walk to the Fundy resaurant for the famous Digby scallops. Our host got up early to fix us breakfast that was just excellent. There is a busy street in front, but the annex in back is quiet especially if you get the corner room second floor in the rear.

'Come from away' is often a perjorative term in Nova Scotia- used to describe a would-be local who perhaps does not have deep roots in the area. But it is also a hospitable greeting, a friendly opener question in lieu "Where are you folks from"?

Well, Joe does 'come from away'- he and his then partner bought the establishment only a few years ago, and he certainly does welcome those who similarly are coming from somewhere else...

The place is a standout- the lovely authentic architecture of the main house, the location right on the water, the very attentive and delicious breakfast service. We stayed in the new annex, even closer to the water, and sat on the adirondack type chairs just watching the sunset. The room was clean, functional, and while not stellar, we were more than happy.

No question, besides the location, Joe is the draw. With something of a tough hard scrabble life, he has put everything into this business, and both earns and deserves his keep. I have no hesitation in recommending the property.

Oh, and his dog, Todd, is a great asset, too!

Room Tip: The two oceanfront suites in the annex are the quietest and closest to beach, but all are fine. Didn't see the main house rooms, though...

My husband and I spent three weeks touring the coast of Nova Scotia and Cape Breton. We also booked passage on the Bay ferry from Digby to Saint John, NB in order to visit friends. Prior to our trip I checked out B & Bs on Trip Advisor and randomly chose this one. It was easy to reserve a room for our preferred date, and the owner was always very prompt in answering any of my questions sent online. We stayed one night at Come From Away B & B on
the waterfront in Digby, and Joe placed us in room #4 in the building behind the main house. This gave us a totally unobstructed view of the Bay of Fundy as well as a clean and comfortable room with full bath. In the morning Joe and his helpers served us a "logging camp" breakfast which eliminated any possibility of requiring lunch, and we sat around a large dining table exchanging travel stories and tips. We enjoyed our stay so much.

Room Tip: I highly recommend room #4 as the view is spectacular!

We highly recommend this lovely comfortable and clean B&B. The location is right on the beach where you can watch the tides ebb and flow or simply enjoy the peaceful water's edge in the evening. Joe came out in the rain to meet his guests with umbrellas on the way in to breakfast. He whips up a hearty full breakfast and leaves the guests to enjoy shared stories of their travels and next adventures.
Don't miss out on this small town where the people are friendly, the views are great and you get a real flavour for the Maritimes.
Accommodation with the full breakfast is very good value during peak season.
