“Clean, comfortable, convenient.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2009

Stayed a few nights at the end of June. We were in the little house next door to the Main B & B. We loved our room. It was immaculate and the bed was SO comfortable that I couldn't get up every morning for the fabulous breakfast prepared by the owners, mother and daughter. The B & B was right down the road from the PEI Ferry which was very convenient for us. We were also able to walk into town for dinner or drinks or shopping. The owners were extremely helpful and I would recommend this B & B to anyone.

If you're looking for a beautiful, immaculate, comfortable place to stay, check out Evening Sail. Before you go, though, check out their web site. Read it carefully. It tells you all you need to know about this lovely place and your friendly, accommodating hostesses: mother and daughter with loads of charm and a wonderful sense of humor. After a good night's sleep, you're treated next morning to a delicious, hot breakfast, a visit with your fellow guests and a chance to listen to the ladies' funny stories.

We stayed in the Sandpiper room and were delighted with the space. I loved having the deck and the room was bright, spacious and airy. OK, the bathroom was tiny, but certainly manageable.
Personality sells and one of the biggest assets of this B&B are the hosts - Michelle and Gail. You were immediately made to feel like family and they treated you like they cared about your stay.
The breakfast was marvelous and served family style. We always enjoy this as it is interesting to hear of the travels and experiences of the other guests. We unfortunately couldn't linger over breakfast as we had to catch a ferry, but the food was delicious - with baggies provided for doggie bags for your travels.
We highly recommend the Evening Sail as a stopping point on your trip.

We stayed in a comfortable room with two doubles and a sleeper sofa, which also had a kitchenette and a porch overlooking the back garden. Our room was in a second house, next door to the main facility. The wireless internet worked, but the signal was a bit intermittent. We drove to the Pictou waterfront for dinner; it was about five minutes away.

The highlight was breakfast. All guests ate at 8:30, seated at a long table. The food was terrific - fresh biscuits, an egg casserole, lots of pastries, fruit. We were given plastic bags to take a pastry for later in the day. We lingered over coffee and shared stories. Gail and Michelle have traveled extensively, and they know what is important to their guests. The Evening Sail is a terrific example of what makes a good B&B.

We stayed one night at the Evening Sail and we have only positive things to report. The hosts were very friendly and helpful, and the location was good (within walking distance of the Hector Heritage Quay and restaurants). The room was large with a comfortable king size bed, an ensuite bath, small fridge, and even a porch to sit out on. Even the bath towels were big and plush.

The breakfast area is large, and the breakfast itself was very good. Internet access was handy. To make it even more perfect, the price was a bargain. Highest recommendation.
