They seemed to have been fighting before hand and decided to take their frustrations out on me. I was having no... More

My wife and I stayed at Gray Gables during a recent trip to Nova Scotia for a friends wedding. We had never stayed at a B&B before so didn't really know what to expect walking in, but we were amazed as soon as we walked into our room. The view was incredible and the bed and layout were far better... More

We stayed several days in the main floor Ocean Mist room which is very accessible (not for wheelchairs) for seniors. This is a Canada Select B&B and deserves its high rating. Our room was very spacious with two easy chairs, private tv and even a fireplace if needed. The bathroom offered an easy walking shower and jacuzzi tub. We had... More

Wonderful bed and breakfast. The breakfast was great. Hosts were personable. Rooms are well maintained and decorated. Great view from an amazing deck! Walking distance to park with walking trails. Recommended restaurants by Jacqui were excellent. Would definitely recommend it. We will surely return if ever in the area.

Outstanding! Jacqui and Dave were excellent hosts and their home and the surrounding area are absolutely beautiful. We stayed in the Bay Breeze room which is one of the few rooms with a king bed that we found at B&Bs in the area.
