An amazing B&B overlooking the lake. Watched the sunrise over the lake with a coffee. Breakfast lasted for over 1.5... hours with lively conversation with a Swiss couple and a couple from New Brunswick - great travel ideas were shared.read more

Most wonderful establishment. Sits, as one might expect, on a lake. Lions to mesmerize you when they cry. Elaine met... us when we arrived with blueberrry muffins. We sat on the stone deck for a while. Elaine tried at the late hour to get reservations at The Hatfield House, but they were booked. We listened to suggestions for a rainy day and visited an Acadian Village the next day. . Great fun. Spend some time talking to Elaine and Ray. Can't help but be amazed.read more

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend in the summer of 2019. It was a relaxing and comfortable spot that served as... the perfect launching point for our travels. The morning breakfasts were special delicious treats that were far better than anything we could have found in local restaurants. We could tell our host took a great amount of pride and care in preparing this for us. We highly recommend booking this B&B. Ray and Elaine were fantastic hosts.read more

A beautiful home in a beautiful location. Owners are friendly and helpful. Our room was perfect! Clean, comfortable and... very nicely decorated. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. We were given a tour and all policies were explained upon our arrival. Elaine has thought of everything. Breakfast was plentiful and absolutely delicious . We are looking forward to going again, hopefully for a longer stay.read more

These other reviews did not deter me when my husband and I were planning our trip to Nova Scotia. If you look up other... reviews of the Lakehouse B&B on Trip Adviser all the reviews are 5 stars, and rightly so! This place is beautiful! Ray and Elaine were very accommodating and we had no issues with check in. They were very helpful in getting us settled in for the night and offered us a glass of wine! We sat with our glass of wine overlooking the beautiful lake and felt so at peace. The room was spotless and comfortable. We slept like babies! And the breakfast....probably the best breakfast I have ever had. Salmon and eggs and asparagus with options of fruit and muffin, with fresh brewed coffee. Simply amazing! We can’t thank Ray and Elaine enough for their hospitality. If we had of known how spectacular the property was we would have stayed longer. What a beautiful place you have! Can’t wait to come back again next year!read more

The owner lacks empathy or a real sense of hospitality. We felt unwelcome (having booked her most expensive room) from... the moment we crossed the threshold, as if we were pests, not guests. And the gorgeous bathtub,the very reason we booked, was out of order, and no apologies at all. Beautiful place in a lovely lakeside location did not make up for the feel bad experience. Glad to get out early.read more

We arrived with our 5 month old and were denied our room. The owner stated the B and B was geared towards adults. I... looked st the website and nowhere on the site does it emphasize this. She denied a partial refund, and was unhappy when I bent over to change my daughters diaper. We said we understood, we simply wanted to call a few hotels to try to find a place to stay. We were shocked at how she was unwilling to help in anyway whatsoever... not even allowing my husband to sit down while making a phone call to another hotel. Very disappointed 🙁read more
