Such a cute authentic b&b. The breakfast alone was worth it. I highly recommend calling to make a direct reservation & paying cash to ensure the owners earn the full amount. They are such amazing hosts, it was like staying with family. It’s a nice change from the big hotel chains. Highly recommended!!

We stayed with Marla and Darrell for three days and felt more like family than guests. .My husband is blind and they were kind, sensitive and accommodating making us both feel very comfortable and welcome. The food was absolutely spectacular and our conversations were educational and heartwarming. This has been the best experience we’ve ever had at a bed and breakfast and we will definitely be back. Thank you so much Marla and Darrell. We will be recommending your bed-and-breakfast to all our friends and family Gloria and Joe.

We have found the Nelson House to be a convenient location to break our journey when travelling from Southwest Nova Scotia to Cape Breton or PEI. It is a well-maintained, lovely old home. Our room was very clean and comfortable, with careful attention to guest safety during the pandemic clearly in evidence. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming, and breakfast is ample and delicious. The location is good for several reasons, including access to the Halifax Airport, but there weren't many local options for an evening meal.

We started our holiday in Nova Scotia by staying two nights here. The owners are very friendly and provide good service. The house is clean and neat, the breakfast tasty. We got some good advice about travel options and attractions in the neighbourhood. Thank you!
