I would have to agree with the many travellers who have given this B & B rave reviews. The property is stunning. The landscaping is lovely and impeccably maintained. The heritage house is furnished in keeping with the era of the house but with modern conveniences. My husband and I stayed in the Briar Suite upon our arrival in Nova...

We don't stay in B&B's very often but this was a very nice surprise. The house being built in 1862. Never slept in something this old. Con and Rose were the hosts and gave us excellent directions to their place. Not hard to find but nicely tucked way from the busy road. The gardens are so beautiful and weddings take...

We stayed for two nights at this beautiful heritage home, which is now a four and a half star bed and breakfast in the small town of Elmsdale, Nova Scotia. It is very conveniently situated near the Halifax Airport and sits on 7 acres of manicured and peaceful gardens. The hosts, Con and Rose, couldn't have been more welcoming and...

Pretty, cosy and comfortable bed and breakfast near the Halifax airport - just a 30 minute drive to Halifax downtown, and centrally located on the highway to access the North and South shores. We stayed for 3 nights and our hosts were very friendly, took care of us, and our room was fantastic - especially that comfortable bed in the...

We stayed the last night of trip before catching a very early flight out in the morning . The home is beautiful and immaculately clean. Near highway (but not too near), with a spacious green yard. Charming host. Since we left so early, she even packed us a breakfast to take on the road. When we were their the wifi...

This is the most beautiful B&B I have ever stayed at. Very quiet and elegant. The house is beautiful and the owners are very friendly and provided great service. The bed we slept on was extremely comfortable. Not a bad thing to say, DEFINITELY recommended.

We spent one night at the Briarwood B & B whilst in transit from New Brunswick to Halifax Airport. The B & B is ideally situated a short distance from the highway, and reasonably close to the airport. The beautiful house is situated in very extensive and beautifully kept grounds, and is in a very peaceful location. We were greeted...

We loved everything about this b&b. The room, home, breakfast and grounds were amazing. The hosts were very accommodating, even offering to pick us up at the airport if needed. We spent the first night of our NS vacation here and the last 2 nights. Proximity to the airport makes it ideal to do this.

We stayed at Briarwood the last night of a 10 day vacation to Nova Scotia. Wanting to be close to the airport, we found this b&b to be in a perfect and quiet location. The house is wonderfully decorated and very warm and inviting as soon as you step inside. Well manicured gardens and outdoor space was welcoming as well....
