We stayed here in September for two nights and couldn't have wished for a better welcome to Nova Scotia. Joan welcomed us like old friends, gave us lots of tips for the area, made the best breakfast imaginable and even though I only contacted her for an extra bed the night before, even that could be done. When we arrived, we were welcomed into the home with a cup of tea and talked with Joan and her brother Michael for quite some time until we really felt at home. If you're looking for a true home on your trip, this is the place to stay.

This is for someone who wishes they had a close friend to stay with, who welcomed their coming. Very small, intimate, and personal. Location is great and Joan was just wonderful. She offered a lot of excellent free travel advice when asked. Breakfast was almost to order. The flaxseed pancakes were the best I have had. Joan is an artist and has many artist friends in and around Halifax and Day trip distance. I would go back in a heartbeat. Great spot for jumping off across Nova Scotia and the price, with a full breakfast, was low in spite of the season.

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay at The Marigold. Our room was simple and clean with homemade blankets and mats. Joan was friendly and knowledgeable and had some great tips for out-of-the-way shopping and eating. Breakfast was good and the portions were very generous. Joan offered us toast and tea in the evening and was more than kind to both of us.....

You're budget conscious? You prefer homey to formal? You're
drawn to sincerity, put off by pretension? You'd rather
feel like a welcome relative than just another guest? If
so, we urge you to stay at Marigold B&B (6318 Norwood
Street, [--], www.marigoldbedandbreakfast.com) in
Halifax, Nova Scotia. From the moment we arrived, Joan
Doherty had us convinced we were visiting a good friend who
wanted to ensure we thoroughly enjoyed her city. Our room
was very comfortable. The breakfasts she served us were
generous, hearty, delicious. Marigold is in a quiet
neighbourhood yet near restaurants and shops, including the
Trail Shop, Planet Organic grocery store, and Rock Island
Jamaican restaurant. And if you're fit, Marigold is ideally
located for walking. We fully appreciated Halifax on foot.
Thanks, Joan!
