We chose Tidal Life on the basis of reviews and its nearness to River Runners. We were not disappointed. Although the bathroom is across the hall and through the lounge area we were the only guests so didn't have to worry about meeting anyone on a midnight WC visit! The owners were friendly and gracious both at the B and...

The Tidal Life Guesthouse is a gracious old Victorian bed and breakfast on a quiet street. The owners live in a separate building. The house and our room were beautifully decorated with antiques, interesting art, lots of books, and all the amenities. The upstairs common room offered books, board games, and movie DVDs for guests. The adjacent lounge contained a...

Very friendly and accommodating hosts provide a very comfortable visit. Great bed, quiet location. Excellent breakfast, and opportunity to eat at Bing's Eatery (their local restaurant). The emphasis on local foods is important to us and the community.

Kelly and Danny run a restaurant around the corner during the summer and they have a great victorian style house where they run a b&b. When we were there, there was another very nice family staying in the other rooms (I...

We spent one night at Tidal Life - our first night in Nova Scotia. It is a beautiful house and we were very comfortable here. Kelly and Danny were great hosts, we also recommend dinner at the restaurant (Bing's).

Just visited Tidal Life - it's a great quiet place to relax, see the sites (especially the Tidal Bore) and enjoy Nova Scotia.
