Our room and bed was very comfortable. We stayed in the 1900's room with a queen bed. The wifi was strong and breakfast was very tasty. Nothing wrong with...

We loved this historic B&B in Yarmouth NS. It is a perfect place to stay if you are taking the ferry to Portland ME or exploring Nova Scotia. The Victorian house has been beautifully restored and is within easy walking distance to everything Yarmouth.

Neil was an excellent host who made us feel welcome, and was attentive to our every need. He even arranged our dinner reservations at a local restaurant we would not otherwise have discovered. Our room was clean, quiet and spacious. A wonderful historic inn!

Neil and Michael's welcome and warmth alone make this an Inn worth staying. Add the attention to detail in their restored Victorian, breakfasts, location convenient to walk to town and near to the ferry and advice for anything you need and you have a great place to stay in Yarmouth.
