Great B&B, super clean, really nice heritage house right on the water. Jane was an excellent host. Spent 2 nights there, easy to find, only 20 min from Syndey. Spacious room on the 2nd floor and we appreciated the attention to the small details (for example, towels had a nice silk ribbon around them). Recommend!

This B&B is clean with a very comfortable bed. The hostess, Jane, is wonderful and her breakfasts were quite good. However, we stayed in the Captain's Room and I've never stayed in a room where the toilet, sink & shower are located in the same room at the foot of the bed and the busy highway/street is located about 10 feet from the head of the bed. Also, there are only sheers on the windows with no blinds or curtains to keep out the light from the street light located directly outside the room or the blaring spotlight on the B&B sign outside the bedroom window. So if you need a dark and quiet location to sleep, perhaps this place wouldn't be for you.

always only request the 3rd floor room (assuming you can climb the spiral staircase) for its spectacular view. charming inn with lovely hostess Jane and wonderful breakfast served elegantly in a sunny dining room with a view of the sea. charm to the max!
Avoid the "Captains room" on the first floor. The toilet and shower are in the room!!! and it's a dark room. Didn't see the second floor rooms, so I can't comment on them.
The patio areas are scenic and look out on the water.

Room tip: Stay on second or third floor.

It was delightful to stay at A Boat to Sea Bed and Breakfast in North Sydney, Nova Scotia. Jane is a gracious host, and her culinary arts at breakfast were stunning. This beautiful Victorian home is elaborately furnished with antiques and local fine arts and crafts. The view of the ocean from our room was lovely, and we enjoyed walking in her garden. The summer sun sets late at night in this northern region, and without black-out curtains we needed eye-masks to sleep (and earplugs for road-noise), but we keep those in our travel bags, so all was well. Jane gave us expert advice on driving the Cabot Trail, and the local scenery was incredible.
