Lovely and welcoming

We spent three nights here as we wanted a base to explore the Annapolis area, including Wolfville, Digby and several other spots. Its a great little inn, with fantastic breakfasts -we had 2 choices every morning between eggs & sides -- or -- other hot item (pancakes/waffles/French toast) -- all starting with fresh baked muffins. So good & filling that we had energy enough to last us until supper. They also are licensed for those wanting a glass of wine or beer in the evening. Lovely garden area out back to sit on the veranda to play a game or just sit and enjoy the scenery. The inn backs onto a little wooded area with a stream and on two mornings we saw deer wandering through the garden. Our room was on the top floor and the angled roof was over one side of the bed. I didn't bang my head as I made an effort to remember that when I got up. Queen size mattress was a bit to tough for my liking -- and pillows could use a refresh - clawfoot tub/shower could use some type of a caddy that goes over the edge to hold your shampoos/bodywash. Otherwise, Innkeepers and helpers are all great hosts and you're made to feel welcome. Mr Carson, the well-fed & fluffy tuxedo housecat is very sweet but elusive. Nice little shops and a few restaurants in walking distance. We were told that most of the Inns and some of the shops and food places close up for the winter right around Thanksgiving. We were here in early September and the weather was warm - we wore shorts basically the whole time.
