Thank you for a wonderful stay. The inn’s location can’t be beat among the vines, with a beautiful viewpoint steps away and proximity to Le Caveau, the town, wineries and more. We were very comfortable in the cozy wine cellar room with our own entrance. Our hosts were very welcoming and gracious and the breakfasts were excellent! Highly recommend this stay for anyone visiting the area.

We had a a wonderful stay at The Olde Lantern Inn. The room was squeaky clean and very comfortable. The grounds are relaxing the views are phenomenal. The Grand Pre landscape park is a short walk and the sunset over the marshland is so beautiful. The breakfast was delicious. The hosts are very interactive and personable. Thank you very much to our hosts for a warm welcome it was a pleasure to stay with you. We will most certainly be back.

Lovely rustic inn and very comfortable accommodations. The bed was sooo comfy and the room quiet . The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. We were given lots of suggestions for dinner in Wolfville and you can walk behind the inn ( about 3 mins) to the Landscape of Grand Pre view park. It is a 5 min drive from Wolfville and close to area tourist sites. Breakfast was delicious! Would definitely stay here again.

We spent 2 nights at this beautiful bed and breakfast with 2 of the most amazing hosts. Des and Adrianna were such a joy! We had such a wonderful stay and they have made us want to come back, solely to spend time with them in their wonderful piece of paradise. Thank you both so much, we look forward to seeing you both again. Big hugs to you both from Manitoba!

The Old Lantern Inn is like a piece of paradise. The location is perfect, Desmond and Adriana are the perfect hosts, making you feel are home from the moment you meet them. The fine dining (in my opinion) breakfast is beautifully presented and of the freshest quality. We were in the Wine Cellar room and it is beautifully decorated and cozy. The grounds are blooming with flowers and shrubs along with surrounding vineyard. This is definately a perfect choice when staying in the area. Thank you Desmond and Adriana for the lovely weekend! We will be back

We had a really great stay at the Old Lantern Inn. Des and Adriana were fantastic hosts and we really enjoyed chatting to them and getting their recommendations for the area. The room was very comfortable and had everything we needed including a lovely outside seating area within the vineyard. Breakfast was delicious with a great range of freshly cooked options. We really enjoyed exploring Grand Pre and Wolfville, including a lovely visit to Le Caveau restaurant next door.

Everything about the Olde Lantern Inn is 5 stars. My wife and I stay here with friends every year when we come visit the Wolfville region and its fabulous wineries, and we are always blown away by Desmond and Adriana's hospitality and attention to detail. Just read all of the other 5-star reviews and you will get a taste of what you are missing ;-)

We spent three nights at the Olde Lantern Inn and Vineyard. Grand Pre is a wonderful town to find lodging, close to beautiful hikes, amazing natural beauty, incredible sunsets, and easy to navigate. The Olde Lantern Inn and Vineyard was an amazing experience thanks to the stewardship of Adriana and Desmond. The place was spotless-they take pride in their sanitary cleaning,especially for those Covid-averse. The inn itself is beautifully apportioned, comfortable, and well-located. Breakfast was delicious with their famous french toast, or brioche eggs Benedict, or omelette, always served with lovely fresh fruit, juice, coffee, and warmth. The inn was charming. The sunsets and the vistas at the walkable UNESCO heritage site were outstanding. Right outside, you can walk lovely vineyards, gaze at fresh flowers, or enjoy an evening stroll as they light lanterns every night. This is a do not miss place. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough

We have been coming to Grand Pre pretty much every year, except for the covid years. This year we stayed at the Olde Lantern for the first time, and can't say enough good things about it. Our room was comfortable and cozy with views of the nearby vineyards, a complimentary bottle of wine (for staying for more than one night), and all appointments needed. At breakfast, the French toast was the best I've ever had, coffee & orange juice & bacon tasty & ample. Desmond and Adriana are great hosts. If you are not familiar with Grand Pre, must-dos include Le Caveau restaurant, a walk through the vineyards away; and a short walk in the other direction leads you to the spectacular UNESCO Landscape overlook, with the hundreds of acres of farmland reclaimed by the Acadians and still maintained, and a peek-a-boo view & longer walk to the Grand Pre Historic Site which recreates and commemorates the Acadians and the first large-scale Expulsion in the 1700s. A short drive away (or longer walk along the Great Trail) is the town of Wolfville with its many restaurants, taverns, and cultural sites.

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.
