We were back this year to take our daughter to nearby Mount Allison University. She was only with us there one night (in the Sandy Shores room) but it was enough for her to enjoy a very long evening soak in the claw foot tub. As we left after a wonderful full breakfast the next morning she said, "Is it my imagination or is everything perfect here?" My husband and I enjoyed two more nights in the Fields of Green room. The bed was omg so comfortable and the bedding was super soft. We were also able to make good use of the hot tub for two nights, one cloudy and one star filled, both with offers of glasses of wine from our hosts. Breakfasts were exactly what we have come to expect from Mike and Sari (my daughter posted pics in last year's review) and of course we were sent away each day with baked goodies -- scones and/or muffins. Mike and Sari are wonderful B&B hosts, friendly, knowledgeable, and oh so kind. They pressed our daughter to call them while she's at university, to be her Nova Scotia parents. When I had contacted Sari in the spring to make reservations, I asked about her ideas for celebrating our wedding anniversary while we were there. She recommended and made reservations for NovaShores sea kayaking outfitter in Advocate Harbour and the Wild Caraway Restaurant both excellent choices (and reviewed elsewhere). I'm so glad to see from the number of excellent reviews added here since last year, that Country Stiles is now receiving the notice it deserves.
