Located outside of town in a residential area, the Suncatcher is a comfortable and welcoming spot to stay in. The room we had was nicely furnished, and had its own bathroom; this area could be closed off from the rest of the house. Ruth, the owner, gathered us and two others staying in the B&B for after dinner goodies and...

Thank you for your kind remembrance of your stay here at Suncatcher B&B this past August. It is always great to know that my B&B is a "first" stay at this sector of the accommodation industry & that it was an enjoyable experience. Re the stairs/luggage: most B&Bs are older homes & the stairs can be an issue. My B&B...

Thanks so much for your kind review of your recent stay here at Suncatcher B&B. You were certainly lucky to be travelling before the terrible wind/rain storm hit Nova Scotia the next day. Keltie sends his "thanks" for your appreciation of him. I am quite proud of that gingerbread which I always serve in the Autumn.

While travelling Nova Scotia and Prince Edwards Island we stayed in numerous B & B. Although all of them were really nice we had to wait until the last night before flying home to find our favorite B & B and its friendly owner about an hour away from the Halifax airport. The "Suncatcher" is located some 5 miles outside...

I am very appreciative of your complimentary review of your recent stay here at Suncatcher B&B. I am glad that you have such good memories about your trip throughout the Maritime provinces. It is always fun to share the evening tea/coffee/dessert time with my B&B guests &, hopefully, give them an understanding of "our" part of the world!

I recommend anyone passing through the area to try and stay at this wonderful BnB. The host, Ruth, is an absolute delight, so incredibly knowledgeable, and an even better chef...her breakfast was amazing! Our one night stay at Suncatcher was the very best accommodation from our 10 days roadtrip around the Eastern provinces. Thank you!!

Oh my! Your review is high praise indeed & gratefully accepted! I try to use as many local products as possible when planning my breakfasts; much easier in the Summer!

Our stay with Ruth and Keltie was an experience on its own. Ruth was so warm, her home so impeccably clean and beautiful and gave us our most peaceful sleep from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Gerry & Ruth welcome you to Suncatcher B&B, located in a suburban area of Truro but only five minutes drive from the downtown core. Suncatcher B&B is a four-level split house built in the early 1970s. The B&B rooms are the entire upper level which allows for two large airy rooms each with a spacious four-piece ensuite. After a day of traveling and sight-seeing, our guests gather in our living room for tea/coffee and home-made dessert. This is an enjoyable part of the B&B experience for us. We enjoy chatting with our guests and are willing to help with any trip plans and recommendations. ... more   less
