“Shhhhsh...don't tell Brian how good a deal this is.” An excellent value, a few minutes walking distance to downtown Wolfville. Good people, nothing too fussy, but all the nice touches are there...fresh sheets, towels and comfy bed, little Goat's milk soaps (if you're into that, like I am), tasty breakfasts -- scramby eggs and ham the first day, blueberry pancakes the next along with the requisite fruit cups and granola openers, of course.

A wonderful experience at the Garden House with Brian and Lisa. My plans changed at the last minute and Brian was very generous and accommodating. A beautiful spot that backs onto a gorgeous water view, and within walking distance of downtown and Acadia University. Don't hesitate to book here :)

Brian and Lisa are wonderful hosts. We met Brian first when we arrived and interrupted his gardening . He graciously ( and maybe happily because it was so hot) left his work and gave us the tour of his home and property. He has a great sense of humor and didn't hesitate at all to make his new found guests comfortable with his witty remarks. We met Lisa later that afternoon and she was just as delightful. We spent some time sitting in the garden and just enjoying the beautiful bushes and that huge weeping willow. They gave us information about some local activities and we took a short stroll to a local live theatre production about 10 minutes from the house. In the morning we had a fabulous breakfast made by Lisa while Brian was outside working like a wood chuck, and chucking wood for the long winter ahead. The hospitality we were given was greatly appreciated. The rooms were comfortable and the period furniture throughout the house was perfect with the history of the home. I did forget to take the sprigs of the plant ( Marrow?) that Brian was going to give me so it looks as if I will have to go back and pick them up someday, We recommend this B&B to anyone that will be in the area and needs a cosy friendly place to rest their weary bones. You will be glad you did,
I had a great stay at Lisa and Brian; they were just lovely, helpful, great and most welcoming hosts. Smooth check-in, excellent WiFi and great communication. A very quiet place to stay, very convenient, and great access to downtown Wolfville and Acadia University for visiting the kids. The room, bathroom and entire house were spotless and I felt very much welcome. Brian was very kind picking me up on my arrival and also dropping me at Acadia U. for my return bus, thank you sir!!. The breakfast was truly amazing, two courses. Thank you so much again Lisa and Brian for your hospitality, I would definitely stay here again and absolutely recommend to my friends if they come by this way.

We stayed at the very beautiful Garden House for 3 nights this past July. It is definitely worth staying more then 1 night. We fell in love with Wolfville and Garden House. Brain was a wonderful host, kind and warm. And an amazing chef. The breakfasts alone are worth staying longer. All the rooms are lovely and extremely clean. We felt very at home, and enjoyed the beautiful garden in the back, a peaceful place to chill, enjoy a glass of wine or morning coffee. This place has a lot of soul!!
We will most definitely return!! We miss it already!!
We stayed here many years ago, 1999, and always recommend it to friends heading to NS. They all come home having had a similarly wonderful experience. Brian and Lisa are lovely hosts, the accommodations are spotlessly clean and beautiful and breakfast, delicious. I won't ever forget coming into our bedroom our first night, after dinner at a restaurant. Our 6 year old daughter's teddy bear had been placed on her bed, sitting up under the covers, as though just waiting for our little girl to get home! It was a magic moment for her!

Nine years ago, my sister and I started a tradition of 'getting away' - leaving everyone/everything behind and heading to the Valley - only an hour's drive, but a world away for us. We happened upon the Garden House B&B nine years ago by chance...and we feel truly blessed. We always stay with Brian and Lisa for several reasons - the home itself is one of the most warm and welcoming homes I've been in and the gardens are spectacularly serene - special little subtle touches by Brian and Lisa are noticed everywhere. It reminds me of staying at my Grandmother's beautiful farmhouse when I was a child. Breakfast is always a wonderful experience - we have met so many amazing people around the table from all over the world. Brian and Lisa are the most wonderful hosts - you could literally sit for hours (and we have!) chatting with them. We always look forward to going back, and Brian and Lisa always make us feel extremely welcome. I can't imagine staying anywhere else!
My daughter and I loved our visit to Wolfville. Our stay at The Garden House was a great experience. Warm and comfortable, lots of friendly conversation and great tips on what was worthwhile to visit while in town. Brian is a great cook and wonderful host.
Spent four nights at this wonderful spot. Comfy, cozy and great breakfast. We stayed at multiple B & B's this was my favourite. Although we had a rent a car, it was really nice to walk each morning as we were close to the basin and also on the main street. Exactly as described on the website with lots of friendliness.
Like other reviewers I found this B&B on the internet and was drawn to the reasonable price. I had talked to Lisa on the phone and she was pretty modest about the accomodations saying it was "Just your basic B&B" so my expectations weren't too high.
Well..much to our delight we loved this home and Brian was an absolutely wonderful host. The rooms aren't big and we shared a bath but it all worked out great. Brian loves to visit and I honestly think you could spend the greater part of the day sitting and talking after breakfast.
We were able to walk downtown for dinner and shopping. This is a college town so it is alive and active.
First off...Brian our host was flying solo during our stay. Two words to describe him. "A Machine." A wonderful cook, a flair for the little things(flowers in the bathroom) and an exceptional storyteller. The room was very roomy and well laid out. The narrow, winding halls that led to our bedroom of this 1840's house were wonderfully unique. A cozy parlour(sitting room) and bright cheery dining room all made for a great stay. The truly wonderful part was Brian himself. A superb, enthusiastic and entertaining host that made for exceptional breakfast conversation. We left feeling not like we had slept at a strangers home, but that of a friend. Thanks so much. Mark & Jacqui Hamilton,ON
