Lovely stay at the Fisherman's Daughter. Superb in all ways- great location, atmosphere, breakfast, clientele. Lois and Bruce could not have been more helpful. This charming couple made us all feel welcome and special. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone.

My cousin and I stayed in this absolutely gorgeous old home for 2 nights in July. Our hostess greeted us warmly and her husband also is a very pleasant and helpful individual. We enjoyed our stay immensely, for a number of reasons. The breakfasts are decadent and the location is superb and we visited places easily from this location to...

When you see a picture of Mahone Bay it inevitably includes "The Three Sisters" - three historical churches on the water at the entrance to the small town. Look closely between two of them and you'll see the Fisherman's Daughter B&B - a beautifully kept historical house that predates the churches. My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in...

To avoid the stress of a large wedding, my husband and I chose to elope. Our online search led us to Fisherman's Daughter B&B, and we are so glad it did!!! What a truly beautiful and magical place. The owners, Lisa and Bruce, worked with us to create the wedding we wanted. They took care of everything, from the flowers...

We spent 3 nights here at the end of a two week Maritime vacation. Mahone Bay is a beautiful, quaint town that's located near Halifax and Lunenburg and convenient for day trips to the Bay of Fundy. Maybe the best thing about Mahone Bay is the Fisherman's Daughter B&B run by Lisa and Bruce. Terrific people who make you feel...

Lisa and Bruce provided the warmth and welcome you hope for when booking a B&B. Our room was well appointed, the bathroom was luxurious and contained thoughtful extras like shampoo, soaps and lotion. Our room included water and snacks and were encouraged to ask for anything we might need. Lisa's freshly-baked breakfast treats were a great sart to each day...

We booked all four rooms at Fisherman's Daughter for a 4 day family reunion. We had such an amazing time, mainly due to the care and guidance of the Inn's owners. They practically planned our whole stay with restaurant and sightseeing recommendations. The Inn is very quaint and extremely clean. The furnishings are very detailed and cozy. Since we had...
