This is such a lovely place to stay. Vicki and Floyd are so welcoming and accommodating. Little Bear is super cute and all the other animals are lovely to see. Vicki kindly showed us around the farm and also some of her spinning with Alpaca and Sheep wool - fascinating. We stayed in the Big Bert room which was really nice. Massive comfy bed and had a separate entrance and it’s own bathroom. Breakfast was delicious and made with fresh eggs from the chickens and freshly made biscuits. Yum. I would highly recommend this place.

Stayed for a night in October. B&B took care of our whale watching tour. Kids loved the property and the owner. Learned about the farm and explored the small island. Even though the whale watching was cancelled because of rough seas we would return again. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

We spent the night here and it was totally amazing, we arrived and Vicki made us feel right at home, room was fantastic , and fantastic omelette in the morning, very knowledgeable about and mentioning things for us to do on island. Like I said amazing, there was another couple there from PEI as well and very knowledgeable as well , Bruce and Margaret I do believe. We will definitely be back, she made me feel like the way I am, a joker ,,, and Oh Boy I love bugging her,,, little farm and gift shop are great too. Totally Amazing πŸ˜ŠπŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦β€οΈ Tony&Juanita.

We wanted to go whale watching in the Bay of Fundy and Brier Island is where 2 of the whale watching companies are based. It's hard to reach because you have to take 2 ferries from Digby to get to it, but well worth it. The town of Westport is small and walkable. No restaurants but it has a general store with a snack bar next to it. Hooking by the Sea is a lovely B&B run by a woman who not only knits but runs a small farm with chickens, sheep. alpacas, and cats that you can interact with. A very relaxing setting. The rooms are comfortable. Victoria is a lovely hostess who makes wonderful breakfasts and attends to your needs. One of the nicest settings I have ever stayed in.

We loved Victoria and her dog Bear! The stay was amazing. She has such a positive energy with the 200 year old house! She gave a tour of the farm right when we got there. So cool. I think we just want to come back and stay and hang out and help on the farm. Her hospitality is amazing!!
