Will and Mel are wonderful hosts with a really homey home. And Max the dog was an instant hit with the kids. Breakfast was fantastic and they were kind enough to accommodate our son's allergies. Also one of the few places welcoming to kids in the area. Located just a minute's drive out of the main patch of business in the town, it was a really peaceful spot. I'd highly recommend it. Questions are welcome.

My 85 year old mother and I had the privledge of staying for 2 nights at the Fisherman's Daughter B&B. Our hosts, Mel and Wil were so engaging and hospitable with my mom. They even asked her to stay on. And Max the dog was great. The B&B was the perfect size to make one feel at home both in the accomodation and the harvest table in the dinning room. The breakfast menu changed ever day with options. One must not forget to leave your request on the dining table the night before or you will get in trouble with the chefs.
On our last day in Mahone Bay, we missed the LCBO by 5 minutes. Mel and Wil invited us to join them on the front lawn to share their homemade organic wine. Mom and I were so touched. We felt like family.

Room Tip: I checked all rooms upstairs, Each was charming.

My wife and me stayed at the place 5 days & nights. We liked everything about it. Melanie & Willem who run the place are really nice hosts delivering an overwhelming spirit of hospitality. We felt very much welcomed there. The rooms are very nice and cosy. We specially enjoyed the breakfast in the morning with excellent food and nice conversations around the huge round table in the dining area downstairs. We took by this a lot of advantage following the recommendations we got regarding our exploring of the region. Another advantage of Fisherman's Daughter is that it's located very central in Mahone Bay. So we only had to walk minutes to get to all the intesting spots in the village and nice restaurants around. As we are living in Salzburg County, Austria, we are used to get best service in lodging and food.
But the Fisherman's Daughter delivered all of this over the top. Melanie and Willem, returning to South Shore we will choose your place ever again! Thanks for everything, Michael & Susan

THIS place is THE place to stay in Nova Scotia! We spent a week touring NS and Fisherman's Daughter was an absolute haven. Of all the places I have stayed, hands down, this was my favorite... we only wished we had skipped our other stops and went straight there! Melanie and Willem are truly amazing people with personalities as warm as their smiles. The B&B itself is welcoming and exquisitely kept. Each room has its own identity, all equally inviting. We stayed in "the Back Room" which was both cozy and refreshing. The breakfasts are beautifully prepared by the dynamic duo and are sure to impress. and as if that weren't enough; there is Max :) the splendidly behaved and completely gush-able Schnauzer.

i can't say enough about Fisherman's Daughter. Only that it (and the charming hosts) will be missed until we return again!

Room Tip: There are two beds in "the back room" (very quiet and with a skylight) "the Captain's Quarters" looked like a perfect place for a couple... gorgeous bathroom and cool layout.
