Certificate of Excellence

Maarten, out host, is originally from Holland, and brought all his bakery recipes with him to CA. We were only there for one breakfast but it was the best one ever. Very enjoyable stay.
Location was convenient for a one night stay on way to PEI, taking the ferry.

This is our best bed and breakfast of our trip so far and we have been staying in some great places. The room is huge and comfortably decorated. Every piece of furniture and decoration has been well-placed--no clutter here. The hosts are friendly and helpful. I was thrilled to finally have a bath last night instead of a shower, however both are an option. The grounds are superb. We stayed in the Estey room with the first king size bed of our trip. I have been jet-lagged, being only 3 days in North America on a trip from Asia and I got my first full night's sleep. That alone deserves a million thanks! Breakfast was great. I wish that I could give this place more than 5 stars.

Cheerful, friendly hosts. Spacious, thoughtfully decorated, well-furnished rooms. A vastly superior homemade breakfast. Nelly and Maarten offer it all with a smile, knowledgeable advice and a warm handshake.

We spent a week in Nova Scotia and this was by far our favorite B&B. We felt good from the moment we stepped through the door. Our room was spotlessly clean and spacious, with a large en-suite bath. The hosts will do laundry (for a fee), which was quite nice after days on the road. The breakfast was wonderful, but the best part were our hosts, Nelly, Maarten, and Dico, their old, yellow lab. If you're near Truro, stay here!

Thankyou Nelly and Maarten. Cancellation of the Digby Ferry prompted an unscheduled overnight stay in the Truro area. Did we land on our feet!!! Such a warm welcome to a lovely home and breakfast to match with Maarten's home baking to the fore! Would return if ever in the area.

Room Tip: Any...I suspect!

Great B&B, convenient for all the tidal bore and hig/low tide locations, not far from the Halifax airport. Owners were the best, couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. Breakfast was fantastic, we'd stay there again in a heartbeat. Thank you Nelly and Maarten!
