We really enjoyed our time here. My husband and I were looking for a place to stay to check out the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia. And this place was perfect. When we arrived the tide was starting to go out and it was amazing watching this over hours in this beautiful yard. I found it so amazing to see how different the area looked when the water was completely out. Our hosts were wonderful. So full of knowledge. He answered so many of our questions and gave us advice for things to see and at what time. The room was great. The breakfast was delicious. And our host even made us a fire in the common area for when we finally came inside. I can't express how much we just enjoyed sitting out in the yard after being in the car for so many days. This was our 1st B&B experience. We usually do hotels or a VRBO. I hope all B&B's are as great as this 1.

We spent 2 nights in this quiet country inn in August 2021. The historic home is beautiful, and lovingly maintained. Our room was very clean, comfortable and cheery. The location of the inn is stunning--right on the shores of Cobequid Bay, where Fundy tides are highest. The expanse of sea and sky that greets your eye is stunning. We saw bald eagles, sandpipers, gulls and willets. We sat outside at night watching the Perseid meteor showers. Breakfast was wonderful, and we took Warren's advice for our day trip along the coast--every suggested stop was a delight.

If you’ve never visited the Bay of Fundy/tidal bore and surrounding area you really should as it one of the wonders of the world. Cresthaven By The Sea is an idyllic spot to spend one or two nights while you explore the area and gaze at the magnificent view from your Adirondack chair. Eagles sit literally in the tree next to you hunting for their next meal with an occasional call. Warren can answer any of your questions and is a lovely host and their is even an adorable cafe two minutes away. One has the feeling of sitting at the edge of the world here as you watch the tides ebb and flow.

I spent a wonderful three days at this property. The accommodations were very clean and quiet. With only three rooms, it was very cozy. The breakfast each morning was delicious! Very knowledgeable hosts, will be happy to stay here again. Sitting right on the water, the location is perfect.

Delightful B&B, place is spotless, the hosts were wonderful and breakfast was great. They took my food allergies into account and couldn’t do enough for us. The view of the Bay of Fundy was right outside the door.
