By the Bay B&B is a cosy place to stay on the south Shore. It has a lofty view from the veranda of Long Cove, part of beautiful St Margaret's Bay. The veranda is great, the room very comfortable & spacious, and the breakfast was really good. So was the company of the other guests and our congenial, helpful host. Aside from the view of the Bay, my favourite memory is of the stars at night from the back lawn. . .haven't seen the stars like that for many years. Thank you Cathie!
Bill and Joy Stayed September 2018
My wife and I spent three nights at By the Bay. We were attending a wedding. Cathie is a wonderful host and the breakfasts were spectacular. Sitting around the dining room table chatting with Cathie, Selwin and other guests was a nice way to start the day. The property close to all the places you want to visit. We spent a day touring the South Shore, a day in Annapolis Valley and then the wedding day. The room we stayed in had a beautiful view of the water and the bed was one of the most comfortable we have slept on in our travels. We visit Halifax a lot and will be back to stay at By the Bay.
Thanks. Bill and Joy

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!

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."
