Everything about this place was amazing. My husband and I enjoyed everything about it and would definitely recommend it and we will hopefully return one day. Louise was a great communicator and went over and above to ensure we had a great stay.

Louise and Oonagh were wonderful. Their property is beautiful and the privacy of the apartment is a bonus. This would be my top choice for accommodations if I were in the area again.

We absolutely loved our stay here! The carriage house is beautiful and sitting on the deck drinking our morning coffees/tea and watching the horses was one of the most relaxing parts of our trip. We only wish we'd had more time there. Would definitely stay again.

This place is fabulous! So spacious, comfy, convenient and so much fun watching the horses from the huge sunny deck. Wish we could have stayed a month.

Wow! What an awesome place to relax. You can not beat the accommodations and thoughtfulness of the hosts. We will definitely return should our travels bring us back this way. If traveling anywhere in NS, I would strongly recommend you plan a couple of days here just to get away from everything.
