Historic Halifax Nova Scotia Bed and Breakfast

From our first contact with you, we try to get a sense of how we can help make your stay as enjoyable as possible.  We are always happy to assist you in making reservations, planning what to see and do or where to dine. See an example of Day Trips on the Marine Drive & Eastern Shore or other ideas on our attractions page.

Since many of our BnB guests begin and end their Nova Scotia stay with us, many want to share their stories and experiences when they return to us at the end of their travel adventures. We really enjoy the feedback our BnB guests and visitors provide.

Our Bed and Breakfast Inn has become a favorite destination for airline travelers to begin and end their Halifax, Nova Scotia visit because our prime location is only a 15 minute hassle free drive from the Halifax Stanfield International Airport. We are only 15 minutes away from downtown Halifax.

After a day of sightseeing and adventure; relax, unwind and experience gracious hospitality and tranquil ambience at our historically restored Bed and Breakfast.  Our Circa 1870 BandB features Victorian decor and antiques.

History back to 1870

Our home was built c. 1870 by well known builder at the time, George Canfield. It was lived in for many years by school inspector B.C. Silver and his wife Marietta, who held the first Bedford Horticultural Society meeting here. Our home is included in Scott Manor House Museum walking tour "Heritage Walk # 1". The Bed & Breakfast house is also part of the series "Doorways to the Past" which is featured at the historic Scott Manor House Museum.

With the business traveler in mind, we provide the convenience of high speed wireless internet access, desk, comfortable bed and breakfast accommodations and a fresh bountiful breakfast. We provide a warm and relaxing atmosphere for families and friends traveling together for weddings, family reunions, class reunions, group activities or whatever special occasion you may be celebrating.
