I am writing this review with honesty and much sincerity.
Karyn and I decided to have a little stay vacation and visit Digby and the surrounding area and specifically go whale watching. After looking at the accommodations in the surrounding area and speaking to Henry we decided to book without hesitation on the Hillside Landing B&B.
Henry and Linda are amazing people who have poured their hearts and souls into restoring the Hillside Landing B&B to unimaginable tastes and comforts . Thank You!
Henry greeted us and helped us with our luggage and belongings at arrival and showed us to our room.
Our room was the queen room with king sized proportions and with an on suite only equaling to the bathroom we had at the Bauer Hotel in Venice Italy.
After settling in and meeting Linda she treated us with tea and the other guests to the most amazing oatcakes we had ever tasted. Breakfast was also one of the best we had ever tasted . Starting with a mouth watering fruit and yogurt par fee followed with the best eggs benedict I have ever tasted. Thank you Linda! The exquisite details to your breakfast certainly didn't go unnoticed and were greatly appreciated by Karyn, myself and your other guests.
We didn't want to leave such warm and hospitable B&B owners, Henry and Linda.
Karyn and I recommend to everyone staying or passing by Digby, Nova Scotia.
We will definitely book and stay with Henry and Linda when we visit the valley of Nova Scotia again.
Thanks again for such a memorable stay.

Henry and Linda were wonderful hosts. They were so easy to talk to, you were made to feel comfortable right away. It was like you had known them for a long time. Both were a font of knowledge with where to go and what to see.
The room we stayed in (The Vye Room), had a spectacular view of the water and the working boats in the Harbour. It was clean and very comfortable, and had a modern bathroom with an awesome shower. Sitting out on their balcony was so relaxing and looking out at the water just left you with such a calm feeling. Breakfasts were delicious, all homemade and left you feeling well fed and content.
We would definitely stay there again!
The restaurant they suggested (The Shoreline), had delicious food (bacon wrapped scallops were to die for) and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

This B&B came highly recommended by a friend. Upon arrival I was pleasantly greeted by the owners. I was given a tour of the house and offered fresh oat cakes and homemade raspberry jam. The “Queen” room is beautifully decorated, air conditioned and has a brand new bathroom. The home is extremely clean and cozy. Many restaurants in close proximity. Enjoyed the evening sitting on the deck overlooking the ocean...incredibly relaxing. Delicious eggs Benedict and homemade waffles for breakfast. Wonderful stay. Thank you Henry and Linda for making me feel right at home.

My wife and I recently stayed at this B&B located near the waterfront in Digby, with great views of the harbour. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and given a thorough tour of the guest areas and available amenities. Some of the high lites were a very clean room, very comfortable bed, super modern bathroom in each guest suite, nice covered porch overlooking the harbour, one of the best breakfasts we have ever had at a B & B, and great conversations with Linda, the owner, who made sure we had a thoroughly pleasant stay. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property.

This reservation was made online and sometimes you are disappointed with the place chosen. Well not this time ...... Hillside Landing is a beautiful old home on the side of the hill overlooking the Digby Harbour. It has lovingly been restored by Linda and her family and she is the B&B keeper. She is perfect for the role!
In addition to a beautiful comfortable room, we were treated to a homemade breakfast, seated in the house's well-appointed dinning room along with other guests. Linda made the most delicious food and it was served on beautiful old china. What a way to start your day!
Our bed was a huge king-sized bed and we were situated in a large room with a direct view to the Digby Wharf where boats were coming and going at all hours.
As well, in the morning we watched the sunrise over the Digby harbour.
This B&B was truly unforgettable and brought one back to by-gone days. What a lovely experience during this difficult time in history ....... go away covid!

PS be prepared to enjoy yourself and/or your companion for the evening. There is not a TV in the room. However one is available in the downstairs. Linda does provide a large variety of games or reading material. We played 3 games of crib ....haven't enjoyed ourselves so much in a long time. Thanks Linda.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay at this beautiful old home that has been modernized with all conveniences, beautiful large well appointed bedrooms, very large living room with large tv , charming dining room, etc all for use solely by the guests. Henry and Linda are welcoming gracious hosts, provided information about local attractions and history, helped us Upstairs with our luggage. Excellent wifi. They serve an amazing breakfast of orange juice, fresh made smoothies, omelettes made specifically with ingredients of your choice, toast, cappuccinos...all served on beautiful china in a room overlooking the Digby harbour. Place is sparkly clean.

We would definitely return and recommend one should reserve early as the place is generally, in non Covid days, booked up months in advance. They have just 3 bedrooms available.

Can't say enough about the warm and inviting hospitality that awaited us at Hillside Landing for our 44th wedding anniversary stay. Henry and Linda Wielinga are such gracious and consummate hosts. Our room was decorated with a 44th anniversary banner, balloons and a chilled bottle of cherry cider. This special touch was more than appreciated! The Wielinga's made dinner reservations for us and afterwards we visited with them while enjoying the spectacular evening view of the Digby wharf and basin from their balcony. Breakfast was a culinary delight as we were served seasonal fruit with yogurt, fresh juice, coffee, homemade heart shaped waffles and an amazing eggs benedict with fresh Digby scallops! Our visit was extended further as our hosts shared more time with us on the balcony before we took our leave. Hillside Landing is a truly remarkable tourist venue. It has been remodeled with the Wielinga's signature touch and is immaculate inside and out. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a memorable overnight or extended stay in Digby. It will leave you either wishing you could stay longer or definite thoughts on booking a return visit!! Thank you so much Henry and Linda..you truly are two of Digby's fine tourist ambassadors!

Hillside Landing in Digby is one of the best B&Bs we have stayed in over many trips in Canada. Henry and Linda couldn't have been more welcoming or more helpful. It is in a prime location right in the centre of town with views out across the harbour. The rooms are a spacious and the shower is amazing! Breakfast was delicious and Linda's butter oatcakes provided a lovely evening snack. Thank you Henry & Linda for your hospitality.

We stayed with Linda and Henry on Aug 1-3, 2021 for our 41st Anniversary. We have travelled extensively around most the world and have stayed in many different types of accommodations along the way! Hillside Landing B & B is up there in our top 5 best stays!

Our room had a beautiful view of the Digby Harbour. The room and (new ensuite) bathrooms were well apointed and spotless. The hot breakfast both mornings were yummy and even included Digny scallops!

After a 30km bike ride we were greeted at the door with fresh lemonade and gingerbread cookies, just out of the oven.

If you are staying in Digby, look no further!

Thank you Henry and Linda, we will be back!

Hugs,

Cynthia & Mike

It was by chance we discovered this gem! The hosts Henry and Linda were so charming and personable. Our room was exquisite and the breakfast delicious with scallop pcs topping off the eggs Benedict!
(That I must try at home, delicious!)
There are 3 rooms at the Hillside Landing which makes it very cozy and no pretentious vibes at all. Our sizable room and amenities exceeded my expectations. Everything was so clean and not cramped with unnecessary paraphernalia.
(The bed was comfortable, room temperature controlled by a heat pump and a private spacious, clean bathroom with a great shower!)
We had an evening drink and our morning coffee on the east facing deck which overlooks the water/ boats. The street below had a great little pub and the next street puts you on the main Water street so location is great as well. We thank our delightful hosts, especially with that little birthday surprise, so sweet! As mentioned, very personable and great place to stay. We also inquired as to buying scallops before leaving Digby and they directed us to Birch Street Fish Market! We def bought more than scallops; what a great market. Thanks for the tip!
