When we first arrived, we thought this B & B seems OK except its a bit remote. The surrounding is pretty nice that you can see the bay. But when we asked the owner about where to eat dinner, he advised us that the only restaurant in town is closed since September 30 for the season. So you either eat...

I took my girlfriend (now fiancée) to Nova Scotia for a few days to see the Bay of Fundy and witness the Tidal Bore. Prior to the trip, I conducted some research on places to see, what to do, where to stay, etc through the Nova Scotian ministry of tourism. Cresthaven by the Sea was identified as one of the...

You cant describe the feeling you get watching the tide roll in off the Bay of Fundy at this location. The front lawn is right there on the river. Catherine greeted us at the door, took us to our room[large and comfortable] and recommended a place for dinner. Warren served a filling breakfast of eggs, toast and fruit. We got...

What a charming B&B! Our host Warren was wonderful. He provided great suggestions, including driving down to Burntcoat Head Park to see the tides. Spectacular. The house has 3 rooms available, each with a bit of a view. But the real view was from the Adirondack chairs in the front yard high about the Bay of Fundy. You could visually...

We stayed one night in late July 2016 on the first floor. No one used the B&B living room which was outside our room, so that wasn't a problem at all. Both upstairs rooms were occupied but we didn't hear any noise at all. Our room was clean, attractively decorated and modern, the bed very comfortable. It had everything we...

We spent the night at this B&B and were very happy with it. We had not stayed in a B&B before, so this was an experiment for us and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was great. Warren was very helpful in giving tips about where to...

We stumbled upon Cresthaven late one afternoon, looking for a place for the night. I wish we could have spent our whole two weeks in NS, staying there. Warren was an interesting, informative host, and the breakfast he made for us was perfect. The room we stayed in, The Eagle's Nest(?) was beautiful, serene and welcoming. We looked out over...
