“Very Special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2011

My husband and I stayed at the Bakers Chest Tearoom in July. It was our first experience staying at a bed and breakfast and I can surely say we will measure all future B&B's against this one. Maarten and Nelly are very gracious hosts and the breakfast was absolutely fabulous. We enjoyed visiting with other guests at breakfast and comparing notes on highlights of traveling around NS. The rooms were beautiful and our bath with the claw foot tub was a beautiful touch. This is definitely a must stay if you are traveling to or through Truro. I know that we will definitely keep it at the top of our list for our next trip to Nova Scotia.

The excellent reviews pretty much say it all--
Clean. Clean. Clean.
Large rooms.
Nice back yard.
Maarten has a wealth of information about the local area and is very willing to share it.
He also has a VERY dry sense of humor--and I loved that!!! Just ask him how he refers to the Tidal Bore.
Nellie is a wonderful person and a very good cook.
Dico is a good old dog and he put up with my patting at every opportunity.

Maartin and Nellie are lovely dutch couple who make your stay very comfortable.
With Nellie's individual breakfasts that change every morning and Maartins cakes and breads every breakfast time is something to look forward to, a nice touch is that all guests eat together and Maartin and Nellie sit with you to swap and share experiences.
The Inn provides a small gym, hot tub and pool with lots of seating area outside.
Beware not to miss Nellie's creations around the site and you can purchase some of them if they are not all sold.
They gave us good advice about what to where when tidal bore rafting for which we will be eternally grateful. If you are in Truro this is the place to stay
All four rooms are beautifully furnished , they do have a pet labarodor who is getting on but does love a fuss

My husband and I visited Truro on a family research trip. We stayed at The Bakers Chest Tearoom and B & B and had a lovely visit. The rooms are large with pretty views of the countryside. Maarten and Nelly are gracious hosts and very familiar with Truro and the surrounding area. The B & B is very convenient to restaurants in Truro and the region. When we visit Truro again, we'll plan to stay at Baker's Chest.

Room Tip: No bad room at the Baker's Chest!

4 couples stayed with Nellie and Marteen in Truro for only one night (unfortunately). We would have loved to stay longer. Our hosts were very helpful, funny, talented and looked after us well.
Our breakfast was the best on our 2 week trip in Nova Scotia. Marteen outdid himself with his baking which he learned from his baker father in Holland. Our bed was heavenly and the room and home were spotless. We had great directions to the attractions of the city but missed the Tidal Bore by 5 minutes even though Marteen told us to be early.
3 couples were from Ontario and one from Pennsylvania

My daughter Jane and myself stayed for a week with Nellie and Maarten, we were cared for excellently, I was ill when we first arrived and although evening meals were not provided, they very kindly provided some food for us after our flight from Winnipeg, if ever we are over in Nova Scotia again I will certainly stay there again I would love my husband to meet them, Jane and myself enjoyed every minute there and the room and breakfasts were fantastic, thank you both very much.Mary and Jane, from England

Room Tip: No problem with any room,just pick the right size for yourself
