First time in a B&B; can't get better than this. Super comfortable and welcoming, the hostesses go above and beyond, breakfast was amazing. Clean and relaxing; great view. Would go again! The little touches (cookies, chocolates, etc.) boosted it even more!

We've stayed in many B&B over the years. Toba's Bed and Breakfast sets the standard. From the sincere, warm greeting as you arrive, their gracious hospitality never ends. Their home is truly yours to enjoy, and what a beautiful home inside and out. The sunsets over the water while sitting on their covered front porch are amazing. And what a way to start your morning - their wonderful breakfasts are prepared and presented as though you were on a cruise. If you want to kick back and enjoy the home, this is the place to do it. Or, use their home as a central location to Lunenburg and other areas. Trust their recommendations to sights and local restaurants - always spot on! Thank you Cathy and Kelly for making special memories of our trip!

You are in for a treat! The hosts are gracious, friendly, and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Our stay was in the side room, and we felt completely comfortable with the amount of space. We slept very well, with the sparse cars winding down the river road dwindling to none by bedtime. Cleanliness is immaculate. Little touches, like home-bake cookies, soft linens, and fragrant hand soaps add to the luxury. Breakfast is done in three courses, with sweet first, and a savoury course so filling you might not need to eat the rest of the day! Loving care has been put into the recipes, and if you stay for a few days, look out for the mouth-watering 'Toba's Special.' Be sure to spend a sunset on the porch to wind down the day.

This is the best B&B experience - the place was pristine clean and fresh. Luscious sheets, towels, and bath robes. A delightful cuddly throw on the bed. Fresh flowers, chocolates and freshly baked cookies greeted us in our room daily. As well, a guest fridge stocked with beverages, wine and beer. The most outstanding quality was the delightful culinary breakfasts ! So delicious and wholesome. Host Cathy & Kelly are so gracious and welcoming and genuinely care about the guest experience, very professional. Thank you ! We were beyond impressed. Thank you

Cathy and Kelly are committed to a great guest experience - everything from the warm greeting, fresh baked welcome treats and complimentary snacks/drinks, to the beautiful and comfortable decor. The breakfasts were outstanding - true culinary foodie delights. The location is perfect for exploring the south shore. And the sunsets are nothing short of stunning, whether from the verandah or the shore.

We had such a lovely stay at Toba’s Bed and Breakfast, situated in a beautiful part of NS. Cathy and Kelly, our mother/daughter hosts, have created a lovely and comfortable B&B in a gorgeous and historical house. They are friendly, helpful and generous hosts. Their breakfasts are marvellous, and the sunsets over the LaHave River from the veranda, or your room are stunning! Thank you, Cathy and Kelly, we loved every minute!

It has taken me a while to write this review because I knew it would be difficult to describe. How does an establishment get 50 plus 5 star reviews and nothing else? Do they not get to have a bad day or some bad luck. From what I experienced, they really really care about their guests. I won’t be able to describe everything they did but it started on arrival We were 30 minutes late and were the only guests that night. They took 30 minutes to show us around the amazing home and help us schedule our stay. I love music and they set up a dinner reservation the next night at the ovens ( Harry Chapins brothers place). The food was exceptional at Tobas The kindness and care was genuine. We even brought out the guitar and had a jam with the 4 of them on the porch on the second night. I left feeling like I had spent two nights with close friends. This place is exceptional in every way. I guess that’s how they get only 5 star reviews even after 4 years of operation.

We hope you are doing well and truly cannot wait until the next time our paths cross. Stay well, stay happy. Until next time, Big hugs, Kelly & Cathy

We stayed here for 5 days. The service was unparalleled. The room was spectacular. Choosing this place to stay at would be the best choice you could make. Even now We still miss the breakfast. There are cooks and then there are chefs. Welcome to a home that has chefs. The view from the porch is stunning. Here is a photo. Be careful, the only regret about this place will be that you have to leave. Ken and Sandra Lester

Oh my goodness…. Wow this truly made our day. Some say you come as guests and leave as friends but not you two.. the name Uncle Ken had a great ring by the time you left. It seems you two became family while staying and it was just so very special. Thank you so very much for taking the time to write this review, for staying in touch and for being exceptionally lovely people. We miss your kindness and joy that you filled our home with. Thank you again and we hope all is well. Until next time, Kelly & Cathy

You have to be here to believe it! Everybody else is a very distant second place! XO, XO. Every morning began with food fit for a king and queen. It was healthy, nutritious, and delicious! Every night ended with an amazingly restful sleep in a four-post bed!
