“Not for everyone”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

We chose this property specifically because their website mentioned they had a canoe available (it was my husband's birthday & he loves canoeing). Our room was very clean, and we had a lovely view. The bathroom was spotless and I enjoyed the neat shower.

However, when I asked about the canoe, Miguel told me it cost $15/hour, which is high. We go to Milford House every year and we get a 24 hour canoe rental for $30. That would still have been OK, but we needed to portage/lug the craft all the way to the small lake behind the property. I said I'd have a look to see if we could possibly manage it. Miguel didn't point out where the trail was; when I found it, it was overgrown with wild raspberry canes & impassable. It was very disappointing, and I think misleading.

We enjoyed having a basket of teas available (some plain black tea would have been nice) and the WiFi was great. Breakfast was not great, not what you expect in a Bed and Breakfast. The sheets were nylon. Not nice.

I see Blueberry Bay Seaside Inn as more like a nice hostel than a nice B&B.

Hello Andree, Thanks for your review. I must have had a terrible off day letting you drag the canoe to the lake, or maybe I just didn't understand, anyway I'm sorry to read about my misbehavior.

I'm glad you liked the room, the (200 hour work) shower ;-), the basket, with tea and coffee, hot chocolate, cappuchino etc.

If you return, we'll let you take the canoe for free and ofcourse bring it to the lake!

regards

Miguel and Monique

Things got off to a rocky start when I received an email before we arrived thanking me for my stay and asking me to post to trip advisor. After that snafu I received an email trying to jack the rate by ten bucks because of some alleged computer error. Thankfully Miguel reconsidered on that one after being requested to do so. When we arrived we were told we were late though we had left a message indicating our expected time of arrival. Poor start.

From there things got better. The location is very pretty with a nice ocean view and rooms are nice and cottagy looking. Unfortunately beds on our room had no box springs making for an uncomfortable sleep.

Breakfast was fine and Miguel and Monique were quite helpful with suggestions and directions. Would return.

I agree completely with the previous review. We think these hosts need a little more experience in B & B food as our breakfast was quite bizarre too. We had a choice of rooms as the only guests there so will allow for the tea/coffee basket being grubby and not stocked as maybe it would have been if stayed in the pure booked room. The room was clean and comfortable and the house in a great location. We wish the hosts luck in their venture but feel they have a lot to learn.

Thanks for the review, we learn from them! However, We were very surpised, We thought we did great, suggesting to change guests to another room because we thought you'd appreciate it, spending a lot of time at the breakfast table together, having good conversations, offering a various fresh breakfast. And than get this kind of review, and like I wrote before it's unpleasant not to get a chance to change things when it's the moment. Anyway we're glad you appreciate the room being clean and comfortable and the house being in a great location!

Beautiful home situated in a lovely picturesque location. Host were very friendly and welcoming. However, we were disappointed with breakfast. After reading the reviews on this site and viewing the images on the website we are bewildered with the what we received for breakfast. Although we were asked about dietary concerns it did not seem likely to us that we would be served tunafish sandwiches on bagels topped with CAPERS, a very particular taste, first thing in the morning. There was no cream for our coffee and no other breakfast options provided. Disappointed we missed out on Miguels famous muffins. Despite this we were still drawn by the charm of the place.

Thanks for the review, it's always good to see what's concerning our guests. However with these reviews afterwards, as an operater it's hard not to get a chance to change things when it can make a difference. We thought we made the right choice by serving this mostly appreciated French culinary dish tuna salad with capers, but for you it was probably the wrong choice. We hope liked the (strong) coffee, the juice, the fresh fruits, granola, yoghurt, the baked sliced apple in pancake batter with cinnamon and sugar and sirop, regular pancakes, micro wave, refrigerator, bottles of water, the chocolate etc. Anyway thanks for the review, we learned again, and we're glad you liked the welcome you got and the charming location. Hope to make it up some day with something you really like!

Our stay this Bed & Breakfast was very pleasant. It is a great location. We stayed for two nights and with this being our first visit to Nova Scotia, they directed us to good beaches and wonderful places to eat. When we make it back to Nova Scotia we will look this B & B up again.

We had a lovely stay at the Blueberry Bay B&B. Our room was very clean - such an important factor when traveling! We felt comfortable and cozy the "cottagey" Sea Breeze room. We had a porch in the front with a view of the ocean and in the back which made bringing things into the room easy and gave us a lovely cross breeze. The room was pet friendly (they called us first to inquire about the size of our dog etc). Ruby was welcomed and quite comfortable there as well. Miguel and Monique are attentive hosts and offered very good advise about how to get the most out of the area. We stayed 4 nights and at first I thought it was going to be1 night too long in one spot, but we spent the 4th day visiting the sights in Liverpool and really relaxed and enjoyed it. We have fond memories of the accommodation and the area and I have no hesitation recommending a stay here.

Room Tip: Pet friendly

Great location! Room was clean and decorated quite nicely. Room was a bit chilly, though. Breakfast was in my opinion substandard, compared to what we had in other B&B s around NS. Overall an OK stay.
