“This place was the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2011

We recently spent two nights at the Old Riverside Lodge. It was a fantastic B&B and a great base for exploring the beach and the Halifax area. The hosts, Alf and Connie, couldn't have been nicer and had great suggestions for restaurants and things to see and do. The property was beautiful and the breakfast excellent. We travelled with our two young sons and we stayed in the dormer room which accomodated the four of us comfortably. We would definitely recommend this B&B and hope to come back again in a few years.

Innkeepers Connie and Alf Ellis have created a superbly decorated and comfortable bed and breakfast in the small town of Musquodoboit Harbour. You will find your hosts to be gracious and engaging, the breakfasts to be delicious, and the setting guaranteed to relax you after a long day of touring.

We stayed two nights at the end of a 14 day tour of Nova Scotia and found this property to be a superb BnB. Make your reservation with confidence whether you are exploring the coastline or looking for a place within comfortable driving distance of Halifax.

Room Tip: The River Room has great views of the river

This review is long overdue, but better late than never! I stayed at the Old Riverside Lodge last summer at the end of a wonderful trip around Nova Scotia with my parents and husband. We were particularly impressed by the wonderful hospitality displayed by Connie and Alf at this lovely B&B. We were unfortunate to be caught by a cyclone the day after we arrived, but any inconvenience this had on our sight seeing plans was more than offset by our wonderful hosts who shared a delicious home cooked dinner with us and entertained with stories from their past life in northern Canada. Old Riverside Lodge is a beautifully restored historic home situated in a lovely setting next to the water. Don't miss it!

I came here on a short notice recommendation from Musquodoboit VIC and I'm glad I did! Al and Connie have an absolutely beautiful house with huge spacious rooms, I was very happy in the river view room! This is another B&B I will try to visit next year with my son, it is too wonderful of a place not to return to!

This bed and breakfast is an absolute gem! The hosts are wonderful. They made us feel at ease and very comfortable. The setting is absolutely gorgeous! It overlooks a river. The home itself is 150 years old and decorated beautifully! I wish we had found this bed and breakfast sooner. If I ever return to the area, I will definitely be staying at the Old Riverside Lodge!
