Victorian delicacy

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 22 Jul 2017
Drove in early afternoon for a wedding with my husband and was immediately greeted by the hostess, she was very knowledgeable about the valley and the history of the house itself. Decorations around the house were antique and certainly fit in with the era when the house was built and overall were interesting when we learned about the history of a few pieces. The rooms were clean and organized. I believed we stayed in the Royal room suite and it was fully equipped with an air conditioner, heating and a personal bathroom. The brekafast was catered to our food allergies and was delicious! Would certainly come back next year.

We decided to stop in Kentville at this wonderful old B&B are we're not disappointed! You are welcomed with a large veranda with lots of seating. The house is filled with antiques and is tastefully decorated. The host was informative and friendly. The inn is a short walk to the downtown area where you will find lots of eateries and pubs. We had an early departure and he was more than willing to provide us with an early breakfast! Awesome spot

It's a tight turn into the driveway and there is a candy coloured carriage house and a majestic Victorian home. Bright and cheery flowers adorn the veranda and what an outstanding door. Yes I am an architecture buff- and this home did not let me down.
The hosts are helpful and steared be to some local hidden treasures. The farmers market is full of tasty treats.
After a great sleep in a comfy queen bed surrounded by victorian atifacts we were spoiled with a large english fayre enough to last a good portion of the day.
Kentville is located 1 hour from Halifax/ Mahone Bay/ and Annapolis Royal- perfect positioning
Apple blossom festival is a true country treat- "you all come back now ya hear" and we will

This is the 3rd time we have traveled this way Just love Nova Scotia- the friendly people and welcoming atmosphere- nothing is ever too much trouble.
The Wickwire House is just like stepping into so many of the British and European B and B's. As expected of Victorian Houses- dark Mahogany- lushes wood- and memorabilia indicative of the travels the Victorians did. A good job at portrayal of the period.
The hosts are charming and the caretaker a bit bumptious but so thoughtful.
The breakfast was sumptuous and gigantic- no room for seconds.
We got to sit in the gazebo and watch the world go by.
We were close to vineyards and the Grand Pre UNESCO site., and found Amethysts at the beach on Cape Split
A fabulous nights sleep on a king bed- with the victorian room so charming, just like it should be- not sterile white and minimalistic- but full of interesting eye catchers
Having spent so much time in the UK, this felt like home

Where to start, found the B & B on the internet and reserved for 3 nights. Arrived to find the owners were traveling on business and the care taker was the only person there. The house has many old / antique items and furniture - almost to many to easy move around. The room was large, tidy but not as clean as I would have liked.

The real problem was the care taker, he talked non stop about him self and his past experiences in the army and with his rescue dog. He was over friendly and the description of his dog did not leave us feeling comfortable as he indicated it did not like men and he would lock it up if he left the grounds. We left to see the area in town and when we returned, once again we could not get away from the care taker. This time he talked about he return from the army and the 'adjustment' problems he had. Scared us and we left - did not stay but had to pay for the night.

Have stayed at many B & B but this one, we will never return to.
