My wife and I were invited to a wedding that was going to take place at the Arbor View Inn. As it turned out, we were the first to book the room and ultimately eased the decision making for the bride and groom. Other far away places such as Iceland and other Canadian Cities were in the mix, but fortunately,...

I’d like to preface the following by saying that my wife and I have never written a negative review about any of our stays at a bed and breakfast. When things don’t go as planned we try and make the best of it and move on. However, when numerous things add up, as they did during our 2 night stay...

We initially intended for this review to stand on it's own merit, appealing to the logic that one bad review amongst many excellent reviews would be regarded as an aberration. We then considered that a lack of response may inadvertnatly indicate that we do not contest the statement of this individual. Lastly, we weighed the benefit of responding to alleged...

Three storey guest house, you need good legs! Hostess delightful, friendly and helpful. Our first room was rather dark, no coffee facilities, no tv, and no long mirror, a trifle basic for 160 dollars a night. We moved to a second room which was much better, I understand rates were higher on that room, but we were charged the same....

My wife chose this inn based on positive reviews and she was right! The owners Cindy and Pete make you feel like they've invited you to their home, and are very knowledgeable about the area. The rooms are spacious, and tidy, and comfortable for a 107-year old home. The breakfast was better than any I'd had at any restaurant on...

We have never been treated so well at a bed and breakfast. Pete and Cindy were more like friends or family rather than hosts. Our room was beautiful and the breakfast was the best we had in Nova Scotia. Don't let the location fool you. Lunenburg isn't that big and you are a quick(5 minute) walk, or even quicker (2...

We had the very good fortune of having friends recommend the Arbor View to us. We were only able to spend three nights with Pete and Cindy at their gorgeous home, but it was long enough for us to realize that we have never stayed at a better bed and breakfast. Truly wonderful people, in a quiet hillside mansion. Don't...

Our family of four (two kids: 6 & 11), spent a luxurious night at the Arbor View Inn, on our tour of the coastal towns, south of Halifax. The owners were very welcoming, even to the kids, indicating that they did not understand why other B&B's, discourage children. The accomodations were superb. Our room had a huge and fluffy, four...

My Husband and I chose to spend our Anniversary at the "Arbor View" and were not disappointed! We chose the Annapolis Suite on the top floor, what a wonderful spacious room! We loved the victorian furniture, and the jet tub was a big plus! The soft warm robes were my favorite! I must say that the inn keepers were not...

Cindy & Pete are such an absolute pleasure and truly made us feel at home in Lunenburg. Their heritage home was beautiful, impeccable and welcoming. Three nights of great sleep, and waking up to the most incredible breakfasts. They're a great example to other B&Bs and definately exceeded our expectations. Not to mention - they've got a great sense of...

Cindy & Pete run the best B&B we've ever stayed in. They are the most welcoming and engaging couple and we thoroughly enjoyed talking with them about the area. The period B&B is beatiful, and the large rooms are completed to the last detail. And if you like a great breakfast, then you're in the right place. A great value...

“Bed and breakfast rooms that I have been in are situated within older homes but the atmosphere and local flavour are second to none and are owned by friendly people that have lived in the area for years. If you want 4 walls, air conditioning, television and big city presence, then go to one of the chains, but if you are travelling to enjoy the country, then stay at a Bed and Breakfast.”
