Nice B&B but hosts are not onsite. And seem a little jaded by tourists and the community. I would think there are better B&B's to stay at where the hosts are local and appreciate the area. Look for local owners that like their community.

Here we are in the tiny village of St. Peter's Nova Scotia for the night. Our reservations were obtained due to the kindness of one of the staff from a Nova Scotia tourist information location. She made all the telephone calls for us and set everything up. This place is part of the MacDonald County Inn located a few doors... More

The moment we drove up to this property, it was suspicious of being 4 star, my first comment to my Husband was....look the garden is very untidy.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights during the Celtic Colours Music Festival in October. The house and room were spic and span.

My husband and I stayed here one night and found it to be a very nice lodging. We used the phone to contact the owner and she came immediately to show us around and chat about the area. The well furnished room had everything we needed with some nice touches like shelving in the bathroom and a hair-dryer and wi-fi.... More

We stayed at this little B&B on our way to hike the Cabot Trail. Our experience here was a bit different than at other B&B's where we've stayed, but pleasant nonetheless. Currently there is no innkeeper on premises (she owns several properties), so the B&B does lack the warmth and personal touch of other locations. The facility is clean and... More

When we arrived at the B&B we found a note with a telefonenumber at the front door. Because the door was open we were able to use the phone inside.

Arrived for the stay we'd booked three months prior and the innkeeper was in Sydney - someone tracked her down for us.
