The rooms are very comfortable, spacious and with separate baths. Food is wonderful, including fresh baked evening deserts! Ruth will assist you on your trip and her historical perspectives of Nova Scotia were very insightful. Great stay.

I am pleased to know that you enjoyed learning about Nova Scotia's history re both the Mi'kmaw & the many cultures which have arrived in our province. History is so much more interesting over tea/coffee & cake!

Ruth is just fabulous! The evening chats with her over tea and home made desserts were so interesting - good conversations and a great insight into the area and the people who live there.

Thank you for your positive review of my B&B. I did enjoy your "stayed by chance" reference as sometimes a last minute choice offers a great experience while travelling. It is always rewarding as a B&B operator to know that my guests have pleasant memories of their time at Suncatcher B&B, especially of the evening tea/coffee/ dessert time.

At Suncatcher B&B I like to serve a "can't-eat-lunch" breakfast so that my guests will be able to go through the day nicely filled! At tea/coffee time each evening, I also enjoy hearing about their day's activities & their impressions about what Nova Scotia has to offer tourists.

Excellent assortment of fruits, jams, breads in a very delicious breakfast. The bedroom/bathroom suite was very comfortable. Hostess was well-versed in local as well as more general information. She provided menus of local restaurants & maps of how to get to them. Price was comparable to other similar accommodations. We enjoyed chatting with other guests at breakfast too. Many thanks!...

It is always a pleasure to tell my guests about places to visit here in the Truro area as each visitor has different interests. I like to point out some of the sites that are not as well advertised such as the Dalhousie School of Agriculture's on-going project & ever-growing Rock Garden.

Thank you for your positive comments re your recent stay here at Suncatcher B&B. I always enjoy chatting with my guests during the evening tea/coffee & dessert & again at breakfast time. Lots of guests have questions about the history & geography of Nova Scotia as they travel around our province, one of the oldest settled areas of North America.

The name Suncatcher is based on all of the stained glass suncatchers and pieces, all designed and made by Gerry, throughout the house. Also noticeable are the strikingly complex and beautiful needlepoint pieces, also made by Gerry. The B&B, in a modern home, has two spacious bedrooms with very attractive en suite bathrooms. A unique extra provided by Ruth and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Suncatcher B&B, located in a suburban area of Truro but only five minutes drive from the downtown core. Suncatcher B&B is a four-level split house built in the early 1970s. The B&B rooms are the entire upper level which allows for two large airy rooms each with a spacious four-piece ensuite. After a day of traveling and sight-seeing, my B&B guests are invited to gather in the living room for tea/coffee and home-made dessert. This is an enjoyable part of the B&B experience for me as your Host as I enjoy helping with any trip plans and recommendations. ... more   less
