Government issued photo identification as proof of residence in the Atlantic provinces will be required upon check-in for all reservations up to September 30th, 2021. We will be reviewing this decision at the end of May. Only Phone Reservations will be accepted.

Bed & Breakfast
We are an Adults oriented Bed & Breakfast, small, romantic and relaxing with luxury amenities and licensed for 2-person room occupancy, so our property is not suited for children under 16. (no capacity for cribs or cots)
Waterfront bed & breakfast lodging in beautiful Southwest Nova Scotia.
The Lake House Bed and Breakfast is the perfect getaway location whether you’re travelling for business, special occasion, romance or a quiet weekend of peaceful relaxation. Nestled in the Acadien village of Ste Anne du Ruisseau, situated on beautiful Eel Lake in the South West region of Nova Scotia.
Located on a private drive just 15 minutes from the Town of Yarmouth, this modern and comfortable retreat offers you an escape from the stresses of everyday life. Our extensive deck and gardens give you ample opportunity for sun or shade, and there is no better way to explore or appreciate the natural beauty that surrounds our property than paddling Eel Lake stretching over five miles in length.
Our B&B offers three beautifully appointed rooms, 1 king suite and 2 queens, unscented amenities and gracious hospitality.
Enjoy your breakfast on the deck with stunning views of the lake or in the breakfast room where tea/coffee is available throughout the day and evening. Our breakfast features a healthy gourmet entree each day made with local ingredients and farm fresh eggs.
Our guests enjoy a private living room with stunning views of the lake, and French doors that lead our to the patio, pool deck and gardens.
Relax in a setting of tranquility and charm. Whether you canoe/kayak the lake, curl up with a book, or explore the surrounding areas, The Lake House offers a retreat of timeless contentment.
During your stay, we invite you to enjoy the indoor guest common areas as well as the gardens, lake frontage, outdoor seating areas, and above-ground swimming pool.
