I cannot express how much my husband and I love this B&B. The room that we stayed in was so lovely, clean and peaceful. We also love the breakfast that's served every morning. After breakfast, we'd go back to our room and take more naps because the room just relaxes us. The hosts were very helpful with our questions regarding...

Innkeepers pleasant and guest-oriented. Breakfast was very, very good...we loved the fresh blueberry pancakes. We scheduled our visit as a resting point after the ferry from Saint John and before heading to Halifax. After the visit we would like have enjoyed a second night. Digby scallops lived up to their reputation.

We were delighted to spend 4 days here. Great old home with lot of character in a perfect location. Darren and Vance excellent host. Wonderful breakfast. More than nice and smiling people either at breakfast and at the house keeping service. The swimming pool, the tennis court and the playground are great resources to relax and entertain kids.

We had a wonderful time during our three night stay at this B&B. It is a lovely home and the rooms were beautifully decorated. Darren and Vance have obviously been at this for some time as they have every detailed covered. The breakfasts were wonderful, the staff friendly and considerate and the hosts were excellent. We were a little travel...

We first stayed here three years ago and passing through we had no hesitation in booking two nights at the Harbourview. We were not disappointed the room was immaculate, Darren and Vance excellent hosts, breakfast superb and when we had to leave early for the ferry they prepared a packed breakfast for us to take with us. Don't hesitate if...

We arrived late and were welcomed by the owner himself who had stayed late to greet us. We slept well, enjoyed breakfast the next morning (served by a very friendly young man with a winning smile!), and then sat for a long time on the front porch just enjoying a relaxing morning as we waited for the sun to come...

We stayed at Harbourview Inn for 3 nights in July and this was our favourite accommodation of our 2 weeks in Nova Scotia! Our room was extremely comfortable and the front porch a great spot to spend late afternoons after a day of sightseeing. The breakfast was a wonderful way to start each day and Cooper (our dog) especially liked...

We stayed here for a night during our summer holidays in July 2013. They were extremely friendly and the service was amazing. VERY comfortable bed, clean room and they even do your laundry for a small fee which was folded on our bed when we returned back to our room. The breakfast was very tasty and it was a very...

I had fallen the day we arrived. They were very accommodating and placed in a room where I did not have to walk very far. They also made sure we could stay two nights even though we had only booked one. The breakfast was very good and they had excellent suggestions for other meals.

Our only regret is that we could only stay for one night. We were on a 20 day tour of the Eastern seaboard and had 11 stops, this was the most charming accommodation of them all. We'd taken the overnight sleeper to Halifax, stayed one night then drove to Harbourview. We,were greeted by Darren, who was friendliness itself and shown...
