“Rustic cottage that met our needs for our outdoor backyard wedding”
Reviewed 21 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The house gave guests plenty of space.
The inclusion of extra bedding and linen, washer and dryer and plentiful cutlery and kitchenware allowed us a lot of flexibility when planning for our wedding.
Owners, Roger and Donna, were extremely pleasant, helpful, and creative, during
Our stay and our backyard wedding.

Addition of an upstairs bathroom would have been helpful.

“Wonderful place”
Reviewed 2 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Loved our second trip back to this home- such a beautiful location. This is near the water, farmlands, and Blomidon- great place for a family to explore. The house has all the things needed- and extras like toys, books, etc. Also has some nice conveniences for a family like a bathtub and a separate shower stall, dishwasher, washer and dryer, nice backyard, grill, etc. the house itself has several rooms downstairs to use so you can have a little space if you need it to relax. Roger, the host is a great person and very helpful.

“Amazing Weekend!”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

What a lovely place! Had a girls getaway this weekend and we can't say enough about this cottage. The beds will comfortably sleep 6 and there is tons of space for air mattresses. Lots and lots of blankets, bedding, towels etc. Everything we needed over the weekend we found in the house. The area is gorgeous as is the cottage itself. We were able to visit the Port Pub and Bistro in Port Williams as well many wineries in the area! (Check out the Magic Winery Bus in Wolfville!). Roger checked in with us on the first day of our stay to tell us about the place and make sure we had everything we needed. He is a wonderful host! He assured us we could get in touch with him if we needed anything! He also popped on our last day to let us know that no one was arriving that day and that we could take our time :) We had the best weekend here and I would absolutely stay here again and again!

“Everything I had been hoping for!!”

We were in town for a running race and had two families with 4 adults and 4 children. Initially we were a little surprised that it was a bit further out of canning than we had anticipated, however once we arrived we couldn't have been more pleased. The property is beautiful, the view amazing!! The house had lots of room for both adults and kids to enjoy themselves without tripping on each other. Everything we needed was there, including fresh picked apples from the property. We instantly felt right at home. Our host was quick to check in and make sure we had everything we needed. After our race we enjoyed combing the beach for treasures, It was a wonderful place to stay and would highly recommend it!!!

“Great!”
Reviewed 9 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We really enjoyed our stay at Mill Creek. The location was super, the area was charming, and the host was very helpful and pleasant. The house itself was very comfortable and had what was needed. We appreciated the spacious yard and plenty of space in the house for a family. The dishwasher and a washer/dryer makes it easier when you are traveling with children, and there was both a tub and a shower stall. We will be back for a repeat stay- Good value for the price paid.

“View and service incredible”
Reviewed 23 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Thoroughly enjoyed our mini-vaca at MillCreek Guesthouse. There were 8 of us and there was more than enough room for all , the house had all the conveniences of home and more, more than enough towels to go around and that means a lot to 8 women. The house was clean, well appointed and the view was magnificent and our host Roger was friendly, agreeable and all round nice guy. Would definitely book again.

Thank You

This is our first season in the Cottage/Guesthouse rental game and given the amazing things our guests and especially you have to say I don't see why we wouldn't be doing if for years to come. Thank you so much and it was sincerely a pleasure having you visit our little slice of heaven. Come back soon.
