Not in the town but a few minutes drive at the T-junction from Cape St. Mary. Clean and quiet; Internet was spotty - goes out from time to time. Bathroom across the hall was very long and narrow. Good solid breakfast and the hostess is full of commentary and advice.

Make sure you stay with Frankie at the Best Kind B&B before boarding the ferry to North Sydney. Frankie is very helpful about local sites and traditions. She serves a great breakfast and there is a wonderful view of the water from her bedrooms.

Stayed for two nights in the suite which was very comfortable .there was a full kitchen which we used for one of our meals. To me it is not necessary to have clean sheets and towels daily which is an extravagance one can do without. Freddie and Ed were superb hosts. I would recommend this place.

Stayed here the first few days of september 2014 before heading off to the south shore. It was perfect. The beds are very comfortable, the rooms are very nice with just the right amount of personal touches to make them feel homey. And the Breakfast! So good. I wish I had Frankie and Ed to cook for me every morning.
