“Came as strangers left as family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2012

My wife and I have travelled extensively in Nova Scotia, This is by far the best experience in all our travels. Nestled between two of the three churches on the quaint main street of Mahone Bay it is the perfect location to see the Lunnenberg, Chester, Blue Rocks, The South Shore and Halifax. The property is spotlessly clean and very inviting, wonderful comfortable beds and large bathrooms. The owners have only recently taken over but we got the feeling the had been there forever they were so freindly and well organized. Every morning we enjoyed a wonderfull large breakfast prepared by Wil whilst enjoying great conversation with Mel and Wil over endless cup of coffee.Every evening after touring all day we would go for a walk down the quaint main street and then return to watch tv in our room or the parlour .Mel and Wil were always available but always in the background and never intrusive it was as if we had the house to ourselves.We will return sooner than later Thanks Mel and Wil Good luck.

Room Tip: All rooms are wonderfull

Had a wonderful stay at this charming B & B run by new owners Mel and Will and puppy Max.
It is perfectly and conveniently situated between two of the three famous churches in Mahone Bay and allows easy access to all good things in town within walking distance. Breakfasts were healthy, delicious and served with smiles and friendly conversation. It was great to be welcomed as part of a global family.
We chose the B & B and selected our room based on the offer of a clawfoot tub in the ensuite - it was to die for! We were pleased to find the ambience in this establishment charming overall and the hosts most entertaining and helpful.

Room Tip: Loved the clawfoot tub

We stayed at Fisherman's Daughter B&B in October. It was our first B&B experience. If this is how all B&B are, then we will be doing the B&B tour more often! We had a first rate breakfast in the morning and got to choose what we would like. The rooms have a tastefully modern feel, but still retained all the charm of the 170 year old home. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom facilities top-notch. Mel and Will, the owners, were absolutely wonderful and provided us with lots of information about the local amenities. We were made to feel like part of the family right from the first minutes! And our little dog enjoyed play time with Max, the Schnauzer. Mahone Bay is a beautiful town with lots of quaint shopping experiences. I would recommend Fisherman's Daughter without reservation - a most excellent stay!

You can never be sure if what you see online is what you'll actually be getting but in this case it far exceeded my expectations! From adorable & comfortable rooms with the perfect setting & view, to gracious hosts & outstanding breakfasts, this is my new favourite spot. Will definitely return if we're back that way & recommend it to anyone else travelling around Nova Scotia's beautiful south shore!

This very tastefully furnished bed and breakfast is situated inbetween the town`s landmark, the three churches of Mahone Bay. Arriving there you are cordially welcomed by the hosts Willem and Melanie and their very friendly schnauzer Max.
Everywhere in the house you discover the love to the detail in the furnishings which makes you immediately feel like being at home. The breakfast is great and makes you start greatly into the new day.
If we ever come again to New Scotia, a stop at the Fisherman`s Daughter is a must! Therefore, we can recommend this B&B without any restrictions. Especially recommendable is the weekend of the Scarecrow at the beginning of October.

We had stayed at Fisherman's daughter before Mel and Will purchased it this summer and liked it...now we LOVE it. They are making wonderful decorating changes to brighten up the rooms which were quite nice to start. They are wonderful people and great hosts...always take the time to chat and make all the guests feel at home. And they not only serve great breakfasts they give the guest a choice of what they want for breakfast...very welcome to be able to ask for egg dishes after hitting a series of pancake and french toast and continental breakfasts elsewhere. The location is very convenient...great views and easy walking distance to restaurants, a nice pub and shops. Topping everything off is Max the friendly playful schnauzer that we wanted to take home with us. This was our 4th 3 week trip to Nova Scotia in the last 6 years....so we have stayed at a lot of the Trip Advisor highly rated B and Bs....this was definitely the best.

Room Tip: All are nice...the upstairs have a nice view and no other guests overhead...on main floor,the Captai...

We came upon the Fisherman's Daughter by chance, and stayed to enjoy a very pleasant experience. It is nestled between 3 lovely churches on the bay, and we attended a delightful concert of "The 3 Mezzos" right next door at one of them. Our hosts keep a very neat establishment, and are friendly folk who gave us good advice about local sights and restaurants. We felt quite at home and would not hesitate to return.
