“Nice Rooms and Great Beds”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

We stayed 3 nights while travelling with another couple. The rooms were excellent and bed quality great. Quit at night but there is significant road noise from Bedford highway in the morning. We rented the jacuzzi room which my wife really enjoyed. Breakfasts were not available until 8:30 am. This is late for travellers; but the Owner did serve us at 8 AM before we left for the airport. Very challenging entrance driveway and parking lot. Stair access is required to 3 of 4 rooms.

We were looking for a comfortable place to stay for two days of sightseeing. The location is a short drive from the Harbour area but was easy to get to and the host gave us a tip for free parking. Rooms were comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was excellent. Our hosts were very accomodating and welcoming. They arranged for us to get into our rooms early and for an early morning breakfast on our day of departure. They provided us with lots of helpful information to guide our sightseeing. The house is on the historic register and has the character of the era. The furnishings and decor are eclectic ... very much a reflection of the owners' personalities. This young couple is interesting, very friendly and interested in giving guests a great experience. We had a really great stay.

6 for awesome!
Our room was big, clean and modern. Perfect Breakfast: Fresh Fruits, super service, nice conversation with the host about the history of the house. The hosts actually are young, friendly and obliging!
They gave us excellent tips for sightseeing, food, bars and shopping too.

We stayed two nights while traveling with another couple. Our room was comfortable and I slept well. The furnishings were antique. I thought it was odd that their dining room table did not accommodate eight people. There are only four rooms and when everyone arrived for breakfast one couple had to wait. There was a tall table to stand at that was set for two people, but the couple decided to wait so they could sit down. The breakfast food was good. The driveway and parking were extremely tight. There's no view of the water because a large condo blocks their view. The hosts are pleasant and energetic. The rooms were not made up during the day and that is unusual at least from the experiences I've had staying at B&B's. The inn is on the outskirts of town in an industrial area, but it was a shortdriveto downtown Halifax.

The reviews on this property range from 1 to 5 and after being there I can appreciate the reasons for both. We booked this property with the idea that it was in Halifax which is accurate but it is just off the Bedford Highway and to get to the Halifax waterfront is a 7.5 km drive. For breakfast we had the choice of 0930 or 1000 hrs. Although we had booked a couple of months prior, it was only at check-in that we learned breakfast times were consecutive, and the early times, on which our plans for the day were based, were taken. Our choice was to drop a planned excursion or skip breakfast. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating, and the property is as stated. Not mentioned is a small disappointment - there was a lovely view of the harbour until a few years ago, when a long several-storey condo was built, leaving only an Ocean Glimpse. It is a stately home, and we appreciated the warm welcome. We understand why people love it, with excellent hosts.

Room Tip: Check the location on Google Earth.

The friendly, helpful and enthusiastic owners, Katherine and Daniel, did the utmost to make us feel at home in their quiet, historic house. People like them make the difference between a nice vacation and a great one. One tip - don't use computer directions, ask the owners how to get there (as the street name was recently changed). Their email address is reservations@ascendence.ca.

Room Tip: The ``Auditor's Room'' on the second floor has a sea view; its bathroom is next door. Th...
