A refined get-away!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Sep 7, 2020
This is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed birthday glass of wine on the deck. Our surroundings were wonderful, with great vistas, easy strolls to historic sights and attractive gardens. The rooms are all tastefully decorated and meticulously clean (I'd like to move in!!). As part of the "silver set", being of a certain age, we felt very comfortable in this quiet, peaceful home.
We were served colourful and delicious breakfasts by very gracious hosts Desmond and Adriana.
The Old Lantern is close to Wolfville, nearby wineries, parks and interpretive centres.

Pinch me.... is this real.... we have traveled extensively and you could be in Germany, North Island New Zealand, Australia, or South Africa....in wine country.... this little Inn has nailed it.... sitting under the pergola and vines, looking onto the vineyard, sipping on local wine (or something you have brought with you.... ) The attention to detail is outstanding, we really enjoyed speaking with Desmond and Adrianna, and sharing memories of past travels.... they are outstanding hosts, breakfast was delicious, the room was exceptionally clean and the bed (although firm) was supper comfy..... we will make this part of our regular get away spots....just a lantern lite stroll from our favorite restaurant in the area.....Magical....

Room tip: We loved the Wine Cellar.... private seating area with great view of the vineyards(** there are some steps involved)

Arrived to a warm welcome from the hosts. They were very descriptive with housekeeping and COVID cleaning measures. Our room had a beautiful view of the vineyard, comfy bed, and nice bathroom. We loved how we could walk to Grand Pre for a glass of wine as well. Breakfast was also 10/10. Would return and recommend to others.

We needed to get away from all this covid business so we went to the valley to do some waterfall hikes. We decided to stay at the old lantern for the night and we were not disappointed. The couple who own the inn are great conversationalists from South Africa. They have been all over the world and we sat and talked for quite a bit after a wonderful breakfast. The inn is clean and very cosy the vineyard and the grounds are very nice. We are very happy we went and happy to have met these wonderful hosts.

Highly recommend.

Adriana and Desmond were absolutely so caring, accommodating and and sincerely personable. The room was very clean and comfortable and quite tastefully decorated. It was a short winter getaway for us and we will return in the summer or fall for another round of 'extreme hospitality'. Highly recommended.
