The breakfast was fantastic including a lot of home made treats such as the granola and the jams that her friend makes. Ann Marie was a great host and...

We stayed here for two nights as a weekend getaway. Anne Marie was an excellent host: very welcoming and helpful. She gave us tips on where to eat and what to do while we were there (we ended up taking a hike along the Bay of Fundy which was really beautiful and fun). Guests have access to a coffee machine...

Lovely room in a historic house (read: wooden floors and doors, single pane windows.Not your sound-proofed, plush carpeted hotel room). This place is great if you like history, architecture and Bed & Breakfast accommodations. My favorite feature was the Keurig and mini fridge on the landing so I could make tea and coffee when I liked. The hostess was super...

Having driven past so many large weather-boarded colonial properties, it was great to see one from the inside. The proprietors have gone to great lengths to furnish the guest areas in keeping with the colonial period. I find that the Victorian style is a bit oppressive with so many knickknacks, pictures and flounces but I am assured that this was...
