14 Jun 2018 View of an idyllic bay
Writing this in the Nora and John Fraser room sat on the bed, watching the view through the window drinking wine

This place is everything it says it is. Friendly (Cathie, Bonny and Ali were so welcoming and friendly). The room was comfortable beyond words and beautifully decorated. The bed was one of best and most comfortable ones that we had slept in.

Home made bread, croissants and rolls were stunning as was the granola. Fresh cooked breakfasts with great coffee.

Would recommend this B and B if you are in the area, you won’t be disappointed

We stayed two nights in May 2018 but wish we had booked a few nights more. Cathie made us feel like at home. The B&B is charming and it has all you need. It is a few kilometers from Peggy's Cove and it is also a good starting point for discovering other attractions of Nova Scotia. There's a lovely garden behind the house with a nice view of the bay.
Our mornings started with delicious breakfast which we had together with Cathie and Bunny who was her helper at the time.
We loved staying at the B&B and definitely recommend it! Cathie, thank you for everything!

Fabulous b n b. Cathie was a wonderful hostess. Home and accommodations were superb. Very clean home very welcoming warm lovely atmosphere. The grounds and view of water was spectacular. Breakfast was great both mornings with lots of variety and home made items. Cathie prides herself on making guests feel welcome and she puts a lot of effort in her breakfast menus. Highly recommend this b n b to anyone!

We had a very good time at Cathies place. The service was excellent, the hospitality very friendly. "By the Bay" is a very nice & clean accommodation with a wonderful view. Cathie prepares extra vegan delicious breakfast ( vegan fresh prepared apple crumble, vegan homemade bread with avocado & tomatoes, homemade Granola with fruits and almond -milk ) for me !” Thank you for that "extra" service :-)

We stayed one night in July as we toured Nova Scotia. I wish we had booked more than one night. It's within driving distance of many attractions. We stayed at By the Bay because our daughter had stayed there and recommended it. She was right. Cathie is a wonderful hostess. She's welcoming and interesting to talk to. The food was wonderful, and Cathie's kind enough to share recipes. The room was spacious, clean, and beautiful. All the best features of a good B&B are here "By the Bay."

Our second time staying here. Cathie is a wonderful host and we stayed in our favourite room with a private balcony with a gorgeous view. Comfy Mattress and amazing breakfast. Cathie gave us a tip on an great hike nearby which was the perfect thing after our big breakfast! Oh and she has feeders so all kinds of birds were around which was an added bonus!

“Perfect Valentines Day Getaway!” 5 of 5 stars
My boyfriend and I had a perfect stay at By the Bay. Cathie is a hospitable and accommodating hostess! She makes the best scrambled eggs around too! The B&B overlooks a beautiful ocean bay and there is a nice yard to take a walk in. It close to Peggy's Cove and beautiful rural NS but also not too far away from the city. Perfect for a weekend get away. We stayed in the Nora & Laurie Fraser room. It has everything you need plus a jacuzzi, fire place, and balcony. (And all for an amazing price.) I was impressed with the details that went into everything and it was so clean! It was so cozy and I felt right at home, I didn't want to leave. Waking up in the morning was amazing with the sun shining through the curtains and the ocean breeze blowing in. We had a wonderful stay and will definitely visit again :)

We spent four nights with Cathie after driving from montreal, quebec. Our room was so well-equipped, comfortable bed, screen doors that opened towards the water, and a private entrance. Cathie's breakfasts were superb, lots of fruit, homemade bread, delicious egg reciPes. Cathie had maps for us and gave us easy directions into Lunenberg, halifax and area restaurants. Her warm and generous hospitality made us impatient to return...soon we hope.

By the Bay B&B is a warm and inviting B&B with tranquil views of the ocean, stimulating conversation and mouth watering breakfasts made with locally grown foods. The homemade granola, organic yogourt and fresh NS strawberries were enough on their own but were followed by oatmeal blueberry pancakes and local maple sausage.... Yummy! Rooms are very … read more
