Very clean, and decorated to fit with the age of the house...beautiful. Our bed was comfortable and the Inn was very quiet. There were some minor issues surrounding the use of the shared bath, but that is to be expected when booking this type of lodging. Breakfast was very convenient. Thank you Penny.

Beautifully Maintained house turned-inn. Formerly the home of the doctor here on Brier Island in 1800’s. Located right “downtown”, a short walk to everything needed for a great small town Nova Scotia visit.

Our host, Penny, was quick to address a water issue which happened at 9pm. She provided us with water in the bathrooms for washing up and flushing toilets. Fixed by the time we got up in the morning.

Most come here for the whale watching but there are some lovely remote locations with lighthouses, rustic beaches for bird and sea-life watching as well. Saw sea lions, many different sea birds, and a pod of porpoises swimming by.

Need to come back and spend more time birding and beach-combing.

We stayed four nights so we could explore all the birding spots on the island...as well as take the whale watch boat. We saw whales and birds, met wonderful people -- residents and visitors -- and fell in love with Brier Island. Rooms look over the harbor; continental breakfast is provided; take a short drive or walk onto the ferry for lunch and dinner.

This place is spotlessly clean. I can walk barefoot around the house without feeling I have to wash my feet. Comfortable room and dining area. Feels so homely. Love the breakfast setup where all the guests can interact with each other. Shared toilet and bath. No shower. No WiFi.

Stayed here in anticipation of whale watching the next day (package deal- excellent value for both). We were a large group so we booked all 4 rooms in the inn and had the run of the place. Having read some previous mixed trip advisor reviews we were concerned what we would find when we arrived but to our pleasant surprise the Inn was immaculate. Peggy had delivered everything as promised. The house was very clean, in good working order especially given the age of the house. Furnishings were in good repair and suited the houses style. Bedrooms were nicely appointed and did come with fans ( no A/C) which with Windows open brought in the cool ocean breeze. One drawback unfortunately is the fact that the ferry runs 24hrs per day and did scrape against the dock a few times making a loud noise which could be heard at the inn.
Peggy was there bright and early setting up for the breakfast which is included in the package.
All in all a great place to stay especially if you want to feel like part of the local area. Peggy is a wonderful host and I would highly recommend her Inn and Whale watching tours
