My wife and I stayed here for one night while visiting family at Acadia. It was under some renovations (and wintertime), so I don’t believe we saw it in all its glory. We stayed in room 4, which was a bit small, but comfortable. It had a good sized bathroom. The best part

I have been staying at the Tattingstone once or twice a year now for 4 years. The Inn changed ownership over that time, but the new owners Randy & Erika continue to live up to my expectations. Friendly, welcoming and flexible. And if you're there to visit your child at

Lovely old manor house with side buildings. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The room we stayed in was a bit tight for 4. Fabulous breakfasts and coffee, comfy beds and good wifi. Inn is located withing walking distance of the downtown.

We're thrilled you not only enjoyed Randy’s crazy-good breakfast but that you found our Inn so comfortable. Should the four of you return I recommend trying Room 11 in the Carriage House. It features two queen beds and a seating area offering much more space. Sharing your experience with others is greatly appreciated. Safe travels until we see you again.

We stayed here for one night (November 30, 2018) and LOVED it! It is a beautifully kept Victorian Inn. We stayed in one of the carriage houses, which was nicely furnished and very comfortable. Our bathroom even had a jacuzzi. Included in our stay was a breakfast, we ordered off

Just stayed there one night and stayed in the main house, so cannot comment on the annex. The owner was efficient but not very helpful when I asked what there might be to do in Wolfville that evening and no help with my bags was offered.The room was clean, with a nice bathroom,

Which rooms have their own deck or terrace?
Room 10 has a deck and it is shared with Room 11 I think. I know it’s room 10 for sure. We stayed there in August. You can have your own privacy. It’s the only spot you can have your own beverages. Also there are no fridges so you will need to bring a cooler.

Hi We did a wine tour with Grape Escapes. For $99 plus tax CAD, they picked us up in Wolfville. We toured 3 wineries, had a great lunch and a personal guide. My understanding is the Inn also does tours but we did not know this at the time of booking.
