“Cheery Victorian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2010

We stayed at Evangeline's Tower for one night in the early season. Carol was a delightful and very informative hostess, giving us maps and directions for the whole area. Our room was the "tower", a second-floor area in the turret, with a sitting room in a large sunny bay. My husband was disappointed with the lack of TV in the room, but much consoled by the fact that we were the only guests that night, and we had the downstairs TV area to ourselves. We helped ourselves to the 24-hour coffee and tea early in the morning, and enjoyed Carol's delicious breakfast after. We felt very welcomed there, and the house is charming without being overdone.
Parrsboro is a different kind of town, but that is its forte. We had a great time at the rock shop (a large piece of geode for $3) and strolled the gigantic shale beach(es) at low tide. It actually becomes two parallel beaches, with a lighthouse on the end. You can drive around the bay to look back on the town, and see yet another beach. It is not touristy at all.

We stayed at Evangeline's Tower and it was delightful! It's a beautiful house built in 1890 and it's beautiful. Not only is the house gorgeous, but the service and food are wonderful as well! We had a wonderful time there and would recommend it to anyone. There are no televisions in the bedrooms, but there is a living room downstairs with one where you can hang out. There is also an upstairs patio perfect for enjoying a beautiful evening. The price is right, especially compared to other more expensive B&Bs in town, and I can't imagine they would be any nicer. It also has free wifi connection, which is a plus!
Parrsboro has a few great spots to watch the high and low tides, but there isn't much to do in town other than that, so know that ahead of time. But, be sure to go to the Bear Paw restaurant downtown to enjoy a DELICIOUS, yet inexpensive meal! It was our favorite meal of our tour of Nova Scotia! And Evangeline's Tower was our favorite place to stay.
