My wife and I spent 3 nights here in the suite upstairs and enjoyed our stay. The innkeepers, Henk and Doreen were real friendly and helpful with information about Nova Scotia to us South Georgia folks. We highly recommend and would go back, but the will probably sell before we can get back up there. Very convenient to Peggys Cove...

We spent 3 nights at Flying Dutchman B n B beautiful location in easy reach of the amazing coastline. Room very small & bathroom though large was separate from room which made it a little uncomfortable as you were in full view from hosts loung area. Lovely breakfast. Beautiful views from front of property

Doreen and Henk, from Quebec, were gracious and accommodating hosts. They allowed us to do our laundry in their machines and, after over a week on the road, we appreciated that! They made us feel right at home and after a very short time we felt we had known them forever. The only inconvenience was that the bathroom was actually...

We had a brief stay at the Flying Dutchman while visiting Peggy's Cove. The rooms were very clean and the woodwork in the inside is beautiful. There is a dock on the water for guests to use which has a great view. The house isn't very kid friendly and is obviously catered for adults. However, one of the two hosts...

Thank you for your review. We would , however, like to make it clear that we are ' kid' friendly and have had many families over the years. All we ask is that the parents respect that this is our home and that the children not be allowed to roam at large into our living area. To my knowledge, we...

We spent a night here - after stopping at Peggy's Cove. Doreen and Henk are wonderful hosts. We walked down the road to "The Finer Diner" for supper and back. The scenery is beautiful, very nice room and bath. Very nice breakfast....We had never had Dutch Toasty before. It was really good. Thank you for a great stay!

This B&B is conveniently located 40min from Halifax and just 10min from Peggy's Cove. It offers exceptional value in the expensive Halifax region with gracious hosts, spotlessly clean accommodation and a wonderful hot and cold breakfast buffet ... get there before this couple retires!

Henk and Doreen are perfect hosts. They gave us a warm welcome. The room was immaculate as was our private bath and the entire home. We stayed three days, and we wish we could have stayed longer.
