Fisherman's Daughter
Ranked #1 of 6 Mahone Bay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We were greeted by innkeepers, Will and Melanie and immediately were made to feel welcome. We stayed in an amazing room that included an onsuite, which was the deciding factor to go to the B&B initially. We were awed by the history of the house and how so many of the historical features of the home were still intact. The breakfast was wonderful and the choice of three different breakfast items satisfied everyone in our group. The inn was in walking distance to the community, so we were able to park the car and walk around to see the sights. The inn was quiet and clean. We felt that the cost of the B&B, that included a full breakfast, was more than comparable with other lodgings and we would certainly return to this B&B again.

We were delighted by the accommodation at this bed and breakfast. The room and en suite bathroom were immaculately clean, as was the rest of the house, with tasteful and charming furnishings and decor. The breakfast menu featured delicious seasonal items, and the hosts graciously accommodated my daughter's request for vegan options.

I would heartily recommend this B&B to anyone vacationing in the area.

This was by far the most majestic and lovely home I have had the pleasure to stay in. The hosts, Will, Mel, and Max (dog), do an amazing job at making you feel welcome and at home. Incredible breakfast, wonderful accommodations, and the most outstanding view from the from patio. I have already told all of my friends and family members about this gorgeous B&B and would highly recommend it to anyone staying in Mahone Bay. It is located right between two beautiful churches and placed right in front of the bay. If you are looking for a B&B with a great view and even better accommodations call Will or Mel and book a room. 2 thumbs up.

Room Tip: Captains room is gorgeous

Beautiful place with awesome down to earth innkeepers.

This place is a must stay nestled in one the most serene areas of Nova Scotia that I experienced. Breakfast was superb, the home was comfy, beautifully decorated, and the view was idyllic.

From the very start........it was a cut above all the B&B's that we have been to. Melanie and Will have redone this gorgeous old home to the level of a top level hotel. The breakfast is the best and the warm atmosphere is truly not to be missed. Probably the prettiest village in Nova Scotia! with the best accommodations, food, and Innkeepers in this gorgeous part of Canada!!
Don't miss it! We have been to a lot of Inns This is at the Top!

We stayed at the Fisherman's Daughter on August 6th.
We were welcomed by Mel and Will our hosts and shown to our beautifully decorated room with a wonderful view of Mahone Bay.
Mel and Bill recommended a great pub for dinner (Mug and Anchor). We had dinner on the deck overlooking the bay.
We thoroughly enjoyed the complimentary sherry and cookies in the evening while sitting on the front lawn watching the sun set.
The breakfast next morning was truly five star!
We had forgotten a camera cable in our room and Will called to let us know.
Mel and Wil went above and beyond to make our stay truly memorable.
We highly recommend this B&B.
