Our family stayed at Hedley House because of its proximity to a whale watching tour we had booked. I'm sure glad we did, because the service was friendly and genuine, the room was clean and the view was spectacular. For once, "ocean view" really does mean ocean view; you can sit on your deck and watch the tides roll in... More

Just left Hedley House and must say its amazing! Rooms very clean and neat! No air conditioning but who cares when u can open the windows and smell the sea! The steps lead right to the beach so the kids can go beachcombing and collect the tons of shells! Very lovely continental breakfast with muffins she makes! Next time we'll... More

We couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Joanne & Al were wonder hosts. Every morning they would sing songs at breakfast, sometimes in the evening we'd have a sing-a-long. The views were out-of-this-world. Being from Illinois & Minnesota, we were amazed at the changes in the tides. We watched them change right from our private balcony. We found... More

This hotel has beautiful ocean views of the Bay of Fundy. The tides go in and out, so you have the opportunity to dig for clams and explore the beach. All of the rooms have great views with a little balcony to sit outside. Our room was very clean. The staff were very friendly. Continental breakfast was very nice. I... More

My lady and I spent one night at Hedley House, and it was a truly ovely one. The rooms are filled with charm, and the landscape was chocked with flowers and well-loved grounds. It is a rustic place, so not directed towards people that require a high level of maintenance, but perfect for those of us who understand what is... More

Joanne is great. So friendly and helpful. We showed up late in the day and found exactly what we hoped for: clean, pretty, nicely decorated, gorgeous landscaping, fairly private with great views. We love it!

We've driven by this place many times & never stopped. This time we did and were very pleased with what we found. Our room was a bit on the small side but very charming. Very clean and thoughtfully equipped. It had everything we needed including a fridge, microwave, stove top as well as dishes, a teapot, kettle, tea & coffee,... More

Joanne was a fun, charming, attentive hostess who is a fine musician. She started us off each day with a song or two and even invited us up to the house to sing one evening. Hedley House is strong on retro charm (units were built in the 50's). The place is very clean and well maintained.The view from each room's... More

This quaint inn on the Bay of Fundy coast was the perfect end to our Maritime adventures. Joanne was a wonderfully vibrant hostess with great knowledge of all the local sights.
