The management was excellent and communicative in the right ways. The room was clean and very spacious. The location is prime for getting around this part of the Valley. The hot apple cider was a very nice touch. I would definitely recommend it to others. Thank you.

The room was very clean and comfortable, with a refrigerator and coffee maker/tea kettle available. The room was nicely decorated and the king sized bed was comfortable. Room temperature control was efficient and easy to use. The bathroom walk in shower was clean and modern. This inn has a quiet location, located one block away from the main highway through the town.

Overall, staying at the Gingerbread House was a very pleasant experience! Everything was clean, rooms were easily accessible, and it was relatively close to many of the main attractions within Wolfville. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay during a getaway from the city, this is the place to go!

Me and my wife we stayed over at the Gingerbread Inn on December 25 to 26. We had a very positive experience staying there. The Owner was able to accommodate us a little early as we arrived almost 1 hour prior to our check-in time. We came into a very cleaned and organized room with a Jacuzzi tub and very cozy room. There were ample of extra bedding and sheet for the pullout couch. The owner lit up the fire in the amazing fireplace and him and his wife brought out snacks and Arabic tea for us all to enjoy. Plan to stay there again this summer. Love the location and their details to cleanliness.

Very shoddy workmanship and wiring very questionable as seen in first photo of plug outlet sticking out of wall. There was also a note saying not to use the microwave and the fireplace at the same because it would blow a fuse or a breaker. Housekeeping was sorely lacking with lots of dust, especially under bed which was very visible, also very grubby shower tiles. The contactless check in was horrible and when we messaged them that the heat pump wouldn’t work on cooling we never did get a response. We have stayed at this establishment 3 times in the past 10 years and they were all pleasant stays. After spending 250.00 for a one night stay this time we definitely won’t return. The one positive thing was a decent breakfast which was included and delivered to the room … This was the only time we saw a person during our stay.

Dear Guest, I must express my appreciation for your message. I must admit that I came across it only after 7 a.m. the following morning. At that time you sent the message, I had already retired to my bed for the evening after taking care of breakfast orders, and your message about the air conditioning found its way into my inbox at the late hour of 8:32 p.m. Given the briskness of the night, I had assumed you might have chosen a more environmentally friendly approach, such as opening a window or utilizing the screen door. Alternatively, I thought you might have referred to the comprehensive welcome guide in your room, which is replete with detailed instructions. Regrettably, I did not come across your message until the break of the day, and by then, it had already been resolved. As for the matter of ice, I must confess that such a message eluded my digital grasp. Nevertheless, the location of the ice is clearly marked on the property map we provided and in the aforementioned welcome guide, with the door itself labelled "ICE" for easy identification. I apologize if there was any oversight on your part. Now, let's address your concerns about the electric fireplace and the microwave. It's worth noting that both of these appliances have the potential to exert substantial demands on electrical circuits, regardless of the integrity of the wiring. The cosmetic imperfections you mentioned may be valid in some areas, but I assure you that they do not affect the functionality of the system. I appreciate your observation regarding dust, and I will promptly engage in a conversation with the cleaner responsible for tending to your room during your stay. We are committed to rectifying this oversight. Regarding the vexing matter of the shower grout, my attempts to cleanse it with a combination of chemicals and elbow grease only revealed that what initially appeared as dirt was, in fact, black grout. I share your disdain for black grout, and I have resolved to use grout paint in the upcoming winter season to rectify the installer's unfortunate workmanship. It is disheartening that such a situation exists in a shower that is barely a year old. I apologize that our contactless system did not align with your preferences. It is important to note that the majority of our esteemed guests find great value in the time-saving attributes, convenience, safety, and privacy that this system affords. In conclusion, I respect your decision not to visit us in the future, and I extend my gratitude for bringing the matter of dust to my attention. I assure you that I am actively collaborating with my team to address this issue promptly. Thank you for your understanding and communication. Sincerely, Mike, Innkeeper

We were on our honeymoon and couldn't have had a better time. Staff put petals and candles in our room. Michelle is a definite asset and went above and beyond for us. Breakfast was far more then expected and delivered by Michelle whose personality could outshine the sun! Such a great time. The Freemans
