The Seafaring Maiden has been our best ever B & B experience; a perfect balance of welcoming and knowledgeable hosts, privacy, wonderful food, and the company of fellow travelers. The beautiful historic home helped us to connect with the history of the Annapolis River Valley. We truly felt that we had a home in Acadia.

The location with panaramic view, beautiful surroundings, inside and out, was a warm and relaxing experience. And the breakfast was unique and delicious with local apples, maple syrup and homemade bisquit included. I recommend the Seafaring Maiden without any hesitation, whether for a business or pleasure trip.

Room Tip: I think the view from the "Abigail" was a particularly lovely view in the early morning, a...

We stayed two nights in the Captain's room. Outstanding view of the water. Comfortable bed. Bill and Ann Marie went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. Excellent social hosts with great insight of the area. When visiting Annapolis Royal, definitely check out this B&B.

Thanks for making our stay so welcoming. The home is beautiful and the breakfast is the best we have had at any other bed and breakfasts. Would absolutely recommend this B and B for your stay in the area.

I'm not sure I have room for all the superlatives that should be showered upon this establishment and their hosts. You cannot ask for more accommodating and informative hosts. The Monks exude friendliness and hospitality from the moment they pick up the phone to take your reservation until you are forced to part company with these lovely people. They were born to do this kind of work and you can feel how much they love it! Their home is a stunning, historical turn of the century Victorian, built by Mrs. Monk's Great-Grandfather, Captain Hall, and lovingly restored and cared for by them both. All three guest rooms are lovely with unobstructed, great views of the Annapolis River across the street. We stayed in the Captain's room and it was quite comfortable and charming. All the rooms are filled with antiques and if you love a sense of depth and history, you'll feel like you've come home. We did. We certainly enjoyed our week there, and used it as a base to see the sights of Nova Scotia. A Seafairing Maiden was nice to come home to each evening. The food... Gracious. Breakfasts were amazing and plentiful. Fresh baked muffins, fresh fruit and juice, Florintine Fritatta, fruit-filled German pancakes, Eggs Benedict...you get the idea, all served on their elegant china service. No hotel, (or any other B&B we've visited) can match all this...and they don't have the Monks as proprietors! Do yourself a favor and book a stay here soon! We'll be back.
