We had a wonderful stay with Desmond and Adriana. They were perfect hosts and breakfast was phenomenal! Since it rained most of the weekend, we used their front room for Happy Hour instead of the outside patio with a fire pit. It was a perfect gathering place for our group of six. Our rooms were clean and comfortable and we all slept well. We walked through the vineyard to the Grand Pre restaurant for dinner. The trail was lit with lanterns to add to the charm of this place. Some of the ladies walked to the UNESCO look off. The Olde Lantern Inn offered the perfect getaway weekend for our group of ladies.
My wife and I stayed with Desmond and Adrianna for 1 night. Our room was super clean and comfortable and offered our own pergola for evening wine sips while watching the sun set over the vineyard. The walk to Grand Pre was a perfect to dinner and wine tastings and the UNESCO look off was the ideal post dinner walk. The Olde Lantern Inn offers the perfect getaway accommodations. Looking forward to our next visit! David & Amanda
This was a return visit to The Old Lantern Inn. It does not disappoint from the warm welcome to the relaxing and comfortably appointed rooms. We plan to return in the summer again. The hosts are exceptionally charming and genuine. My partner, who is a retired professional chef , praised the delicious breakfast and wonderful coffee blend which is served! The Inn is located centrally to numerous vineyards and there are many restaurants nearby to suit all tastes. The Old Lantern Inn will be our “ go to “ in the Wolfville / Grand Pre area
What a wonderful place this is! Nestled in the vineyards and a short, scenic stroll to Grand Pre vineyard and restaurant (which is lit with candlelit lanterns at night!), the Olde Lantern Inn is charming from top to bottom. We stayed in the 'In the Vineyard' room, which was spacious and comfortable, with triple-aspect windows that are elevated - so you are just over the vines. It's lovely. The jet tub in the bathroom was an unexpected treat. Desmond and Adriana are superb hosts, warm and friendly and with fascinating experiences to share. And the breakfast - wow! I couldn't decide between the sweet or savory - and so Adriana made me both! And for my fussy partner, she went out and got some of his favorite veggies to make a benny on our second day. Throw in access to walk the vineyards (a short stroll through which leads to the new Grand Pre viewpoint) and a 3 minute drive to the wonders of Wolfville and the surrounding area and you have the perfect weekend away. Highly, highly recommended.…
We recently enjoyed a night at The Olde Lantern Inn ( a return visit for us). Adriana and Desmond are charming and very welcoming hosts. So comfortable, tastefully decorated and quiet. The grounds are very attractive. They serve a very fine breakfast. Look forward to a return visit.
This Inn and the property is absolutely beautiful & filled with lots of country charm. For convenience the Inn is connected by a path with Grand Pre Winery & Le Caveau Restaurant. A row of candle lit lanterns were lit for our return after dark. Breakfast was so delicious. Our hosts Adrianne & Desmond are so welcoming and easy to talk to. We really enjoyed listening about their life journey and how they came to settle in the Valley of Wolfville. Thank you for a memorable stay !
The Olde Lantern Inn was a convenient location to explore the winery and Bay of Fundy area of NS. Desmond gave great tips helping to make the most of our time in the area; such as wineries, trails, bike rental and viewing the tide change. Adriana and Desmond offered several great choices for breakfast, we were happy yo be there a few days allowing us to sample them all. If you’re looking for friendly, welcoming people and a great space (we even had a private property), this is the place for you!
Thank you Adrianna and Desmond for your warm welcome! We will not forget your charming house in this bucolic landscape of Grand-Pré. It was a most enjoyable stay without counting your delicious breakfasts. Everything was impeccable, Adrianna and Desmond are exceptional innkeepers!
Four couples stayed at the Old Lantern as we did a self planned wine tour. The place is spectacular. It was clean, cozy with old world charm. The hosts were amazing and public health protocols were followed. They offered advice about the area, chatted with us and prepared an amazing breakfast. We went to le caveau restaurant which was also amazing. The hosts of the Old Lantern lit lanterns from the restaurant to the Inn as the vineyard was dark by the time we were finished our meal. It was such a wonderful touch. I would highly recommend this place and we hope to return again. Thank you for ensuring everything was perfect and for welcoming us into your “home”.
We loved everything about the Olde Lantern Inn. Desi and Adri were delightful hosts. The rooms were spacious and clean. The grounds was absolutely beautiful. And the breakfast was delicious. We will definitely be back. And highly recommend this B&B!
