Anchors Gate B&B
Ranked #1 of 1 Bayside B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 October 2016

We stayed a single night in the Forequarter room. The view was as gorgeous as we expected, and the room is actually a bit larger than some photos suggest. Also, George is an accomplished carpenter, so custom built-ins (a closet, tv shelves, and night stands) make the space incredibly functional. The bath is large and comfortable, and there is even a small private balcony. Everything is impeccably maintained.

Breakfast was outstanding! Homemade french toast with real maple syrup and homemade jam, fresh-picked blueberries and yogurt, and plenty of hot, fresh coffee and interesting conversation got the day off to a great start.

The location is ideal for visiting Peggy's Cove either before or after the tour buses are there, but the real charm of Anchor's Gate is the warmth of the hosts. Nancy and George put us at ease from the moment we arrived, and they offered great suggestions for local restaurants and activities (including the local museum).

We'll definitely return the next time we're in Nova Scotia.

Room Tip: Forequarter has a great view, and it was very comfortable for a couple with moderate luggage (2 carr...

We had the room with the beautiful view of the water and it was very nice. Breakfast was good (eggs, meat, etc.). The homemade jam was AWESOME. This was a great location to visit Peggy's Cove and Prospect.

We often visit Nova Scotia for its Atlantic Canada relaxed atmosphere, honest beauty, friendly folks, food (lobster) and ocean adventures. Anchors Gate, owned and operated by Nancy and George, is almost always our first stop. George is a ship building Newfoundlander with a barn shop worthy of his fine craftsmanship. The entire B&B reflects his efforts toward quality Atlantic Canadian design. Nancy's master gardening and hospitality is both graciousness and not to be missed.
Stay for a day or several weeks as we have - you will definitely enjoy these peaceful surroundings.

Nancy & George are excellent hosts, in a perfectly situated location just 20 minutes outside of Halifax and near the incredible granite outcrop in Peggy's Cove. Clean, comfortable rooms, delicious breakfast, fun & interesting conversations, great information about things to see, places to go, and directions on how best to get there.

Room Tip: The smaller room had the best view, but the larger room made it easier to spread out and relax...

Stayed two nights with George and Nancy Pike in their B&B. They were wonderful hosts and provided us with tips for the area and dining. Comfortable room and good breakfast! We learned a lot about par Canada from George!!

Booked a room here and when we arrived to check in the owner told us we could not stay with our newborn. I am an eco-tour operator in the province and will be sure to not recommend this business to anyone visiting. We were hoping to be able to recommend a few B&B's to our guests, but Anchor's Gate won't be on the list.

Good customer service is important to us and we appreciate you raising the concern about service to families. We believe we have been a family friendly home (children 2 and older) over the years but we lack the proper facilities to accommodate new born babies in our main house. We have a self contained unit which can accommodate any age, however, the main house with the other rooms are all located on the same floor in very close proximity. The night in question, the other rooms were occupied and we believe we have an obligation to our other guests to provide a quiet environment. We were not aware or misunderstood that the couple were traveling with an infant or we would have referred them elsewhere. We did find them alternate accommodations.

We stayed one night in September. Our room was large clean and had a great view of the bay. We also had a small diner table and fridge. The table came in handy as there is a great pizza place near by and this gave us a break from eating in a restaurant. The breakfast was good and the conversation excellent.
