The hosts were pleasant but the accommodations did not live up to the reviews or online images. The property is tired, full of knick knacks and a mix of stuff, and essentially not how it is presented online, at all. The hosts bedroom was directly above our room (3rd floor) so we could hear the heavy feet of our hosts. The breakfasts were fine but not what you might expect for a 5 star rating.
We stayed a night at the Red Mahone Bed & Breakfast during our week in Nova Scotia. We absolutely loved our b & b experience and the town of Mahone Bay. Mahone Bay is so picturesque and quaint. Our room at Red Mahone was spacious, Barbara and Glen were welcoming, the bed was comfortable, the ensuite was lovely, and Glen's breakfast was delicious! We took Glen's advice and took a short walk to the Saltbox brewery where we enjoyed a few beverages and participated in trivia night. We didn't win but we sure enjoyed ourselves! The locals are friendly and helpful, and we would highly recommend checking out the brewery. If we ever return to this part of Nova Scotia, we would not hesitate to stay at Red Mahone again. Thank you, Barbara and Glen!
We stayed one night in Room #2 at Red Mahone B&B. Barbara was very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was amazing! Glen made a mean stuffed french toast with tons of fresh fruit. I would give breakfast and the hosts a 5 out of 5. Our room was very nice and the bed was VERY comfortable. The only reason I didn't give this a 5 rating is because the bed was very tight in the room and it didn't allow for much space or very usable nightstands. Also, the window air conditioner was quite loud and luckily we didn't have to use it, so we turned it off. The ensuite bathroom was very spacious and the shower was great. I think improving the furniture arrangement in the room, changing out the air conditioner and also attending more to the front gardens and lawn would elevate this B&B to a 5 star rating. Overall I would recommend Red Mahone B&B.…
We had the very best hostess and host during our safe at the Red Mahone B&B, we will definitely return for another stay! The breakfast we had was fit for royalty and the attention to detail was amazing! Thank you Barbara and Glen!!
Red Mahone was clean and elegant and my room was the perfect combination of classic and modern. The hosts made me feel pampered and welcomed while also respecting my privacy. I stayed in the Maggie Room for a solo weekend getaway and enjoyed the luxurious king sized bed and soaker tub. The breakfast was absolutely delicious! I would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast for their hospitality, attention to detail, and homey yet minimal style. I can't wait to return.
