Excellent, comfortable king bed with luxurious towels and linens in this handsome B & B right across from the harbour on Main St. in Mahone Bay. Easy walking distance to all good restaurants and shops. The breakfasts were wonderful with five delicious homemade jams, smoked salmon, choice of blueberry pancakes or eggs with excellent sausage or bacon. Also included coffee...

Lovely place. Bed great. Fabulous pancakes for breakfast along with all the fixings including local smoked salmon. Host didn't seem too happy throughout our visit which is strange based on the other reviews. Perhaps just an off day. Didn't dampen our great view of Mahoney Bay.

We lucked out and at the last minute got a room at Fairmont House due to a cancellation. The house is centrally located and our room was very clean and well appointed. The owner was welcoming and prepared a delicious breakfast in the morning. We had a delightful conversation after breakfast, too. Wished we could stay longer, as Mahone Bay...

Nova Scotia, who needs AC? You very well may need it. We arrived on a hot day in August and were glad we looked for B&Bs with AC. Fairmont House, right on the main street, was a quaint older home with spacious, clean, well appointed rooms. Not very fancy, but perfect for us. The large bathroom had all grooming amenities....

This older home has plenty of character, cozy rooms, and the owner is delightful. I am celiac and we emailed ahead about gluten free options for breakfast. The owner had lovely gluten free toast and he had even bought some gluten free banana bread for my breakfast. The breakfast spread is amazing with smoked salmon, herbed cream cheese, home made...

I was treated so well at this b&b. Loved it. The breakfasts were from local fare and delicious. The room was so comfortable with a large bathroom and tub which I loved. I would recommend staying here to anyone.

We thought we would extend our mini vacation by booking one night in Mahone Bay. All reviews gave this place a 4 star, but I really can't see how or why. The bedroom was old, run down and dirty. The hand soap dispenser in the private bathroom had black grunge on it. The sheets were old and worn as well...

Convenient in Mahone Bay, with parking and an easy walk to everything in town. The building is a home on the main street in downtown Mahone Bay; it sort of felt like we were staying in a distant cousin’s house that had been converted to accommodate guests. The room was comfortable with king sized bed, air conditioning, and a view...
