“Breakfast was hearty and delicious”

We were made to feel most welcome by the hosts of this beautifully and lovingly restored century home. With all the details you expect architecturally but with modernized kitchen, baths, etc. Checking in was easy and we appreciated the little touches of fresh herb/wildflower arrangements, a "morning room" to prepare coffee/ tea, a small refrigerator , cork screw and wine glasses ( and spacious enough to practice yoga,) and a library of books and movie dvd's to peruse. The area is quiet but exactly where you want to be if your interest is in observing the unique geological experience that is known as the tidal bore and The Bay of Fundy. DO visit the Interpretive Center nearby to learn about it and if up for it, take the wild ride on the Kodiaks/river rafting to experience the tidal bore on/in the water! Breakfasts were hearty and delicious.  Your appreciation of their little community will be even better understood.

“The house is gorgeous”

Wonderful people, great food and comfy beds. The house is gorgeous and the setting is perfect. We were taken care of so well that we will definitely stay here again if we come back!

"This old beauty of a house has grand, airy rooms and large windows overlooking grassy fields. Artistically designed communal spaces are everywhere, including the back porch with requisite hammock. All accommodations include a big, healthy, locally sourced breakfast.."

“This place is absolutely worth more than  just a pit stop"

What a perfect spot for a hangout ! We were on our way to cape breton and did a two night stopover at the tidal life guesthouse. This place is absolutely more than worth just a pit stop. Lovely decorated wit a lot history, amazing and extremely friendly hosts surrounded by beautiful landscape. Outstanding breakfast with other guest, interesting talks and a real great experience.   Worth a trip alone to Maitland ! Thanks again !

“Absolutely beautiful”

Myself and my three year old daughter loved every minute at "the big house". Absolutely beautiful and the hosts Kelly and Danny were so welcoming, informative, and just great people. They even didn't mind my daughter pestering them with questions and tagging around. They are both so kind and fantastic, and it shows throughout the house. Maitland is lucky to have them!

The breakfast was the best I probably ever had”

What can I say, these guys are great. They took the time to make sure everything was perfect for us. We hung out in the mornings and got to know one another. The breakfast was the best I probably ever had. I wish them only the best with their future endeavors. Hope to hang out again in the future.

This place Is a splurge without the high cost usually associated with this sort of experience

Our stay in the Moonstruck Garden room was wonderful. It was very quiet and our room and private bath were immaculate. The old house is an architectural gem and filled with Kelly and Danny's wonderfully eclectic art. Our breakfast the next morning was unbelievably delicious using locally sourced ingredients of the highest quality. This place Is a splurge without the high cost usually associated with this sort of experience. If you stay here, make sure you have ample gas in your car's tank as stations are few and far between and most close by 5 pm. Be sure to check the tide schedule so you can witness the dramatic high and low tides at Burntcoat head park.
