Beautifully appointed B&B.Helpful & friendly hosts

Pros: Everything! Especially the accomodating, helpful and friendly hosts.
Cons: Nothing. This was a beautiful place.
Location: Unfortunately there for too short a time to explore the area. Supermarket close by which let us have a lovely bbq from the deck off our room.
Unfortunately we only stayed with Tom and Eva for one night as it was a stop on our way from Cape Breton to bring us near to the airport in Halifax for our return to Boston. They have done an incredible job completely on their own of turning this old church into a ridiculously well appointed and cared for home and B&B. Upon our arrival, there was a whale watch boat off in the harbor stalking a whale who we were able to see from our room and beautiful and cozy deck. After hearing from our hosts that they have continually added features after hearing from guests that they have added things such as a barbeque on the deck when one guests said it would be nice to have..I thought I would have a suggestion! A pair of binnoculars to watch the whales. No sooner did I have the thought than Tom came to our door saying "I was wondering if you might want a pair of binnoculars to watch the whales." Amazing. If you want to stay in Halifax, I can't imagine a better place. Homey and immaculate. Super comfy bed, amazing views, helpful and genial hosts. I wish we could have stayed longer. About 35 mins to the airport with no traffic.
