... a quick 5 minute ride across Petite Passage to Long Island. This is a pretty little fishing village beautiful old homes and Richard did a quick drive pass spruce forests, homes in between, marshland with bogs and you can still see a bit of autumn colours in the distance. Mainly spruce trees on the 20 minute drive to Freeport just in time to drive on the ferry to Brier Island another $5.50.
Once off the ferry we turned left to ...

Early dinner and pig out on the beautiful muffins, showered and ready for bed. Did the blog and
downloaded today’s photos and relaxed in bed with Richard watching TV before going to sleep and I hope I can sleep and don't watch the clock like Mum.

Continued on Hwy 303 which becomes Montague Row where Harmony B&B Suites is located. Parked over the other side of the road by the Annapolis Bay to have lunch walked over to Harmony B&B signed in Richard drove the car around to the back and parked near our Suite No. 5 upstairs.

... the Bay of Fundy. We were between tides, but still had a marvelous view at an old wharf in Culloden. Weather-wise, it was another warm, sunny day. A yummy meal at Bistro East (across the street from Fort Anne) fortified us for our candlelight tour of the Graveyard of Annapolis Royal. Alan Melanson lead us for over an hour through the grounds of Fort Anne and the adjacent English graveyard, the oldest in Canada. When we returned to the B&B, hot cider awaited ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hillsdale House Inn Annapolis Royal
Great food, great hosts
Val and Paul are just great - just like old friends. They made sure we knew about local activites. The Inn is a classic time machine -I loved reading in the parlour. The rooms are tasteful and fully equipped and the breakfast is sensational. We also loved the garden! Annapolis Royal itself is probably the prettiest village in Canada!
If only all B&B were this way!
We,(two families with kids) stayed there just one night last August during a very quick tour in New England and Nova Scotia. We regretted that very much, because our stay was so pleasant that we'd better stayed there much longer. We booked three rooms on the first floor and the three of them had different personality and decoration, but the same charme. Breakfast also is highly recommended. It was easy to forget the rainy weather and the tons of mosquitos outside!
My wife and I just comleted a 16 day tour of the maritimes. We stayed at four star hotels, five star resorts, and a variety of B&B / Inns.
My wife and I had postponed visiting Nova Scotia for too many years; The Hillsdale was one of four locations we stayed at in our two week tour, and decidely our favorite B&B and location. The hosts, Val and Paul have an outstanding product -- a well maintained, old building that was designed for entertaining over a 100 years ago, and does it exceptionally well today; Val's breakfasts are a delight, with abundant fresh fruit with the speciality of the day, or what you might want.
We Didn't Want to Leave!
What an incredible place! We fell in love with the accomodations-from the comfortable, cozy rooms to the beautiful antiques and gardens. But as wonderful as the surroundings were, they didn't hold a candle to the warmth and hospitality of the Innkeepers, Paul and Val. It's not often you check into an inn and leave knowing you've made good friends. We will definitely be back...we're counting the days until we can again spend time at the Hillsdale House and Annapolis Royal!
We stayed at the historic hillsdale inn for 2 nights during our east coast driving trip. The building itself is charming and beautifully set in 2 or 3 acres of gardens and lawn. Both the inn and annapolis royale have a real sense of living history together with interesting buildings shops, art galleries, and restaurants.
I recently had the pleasure of staying at Hillsdale House in June 2006.
The inn is within walking distance to the downtown area, Fort Anne and the historic gardens. The inn has so much character both inside and out. It is recognized as a historic property in the town.
The rooms were very clean. The bathrooms have a huge claw foot tub. Breakfast was to die for! We had fresh homemade blueberry muffins (still hot from the oven) followed by waffles with local blueberries and strawberries with local maple syrup. It was so good. I could not ask for more!!!
Such a deal as well - $109.00 for all this! I highly recommend this as a place to stay. It was such a treat.
Hospitable and Charming
These are the most hospitable of innkeepers. The property is well maintained and the grounds are spacious. The inn is period decorated without feeling like a museum. The included breakfast has plenty of choices, and when I requested cold cereal they pulled some from their pantry. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. One caveat...Despite its beauty, beware of the room King George slept in. I think it's the same mattress!
Great Theme nights!
I had the pleasure of staying at the inn on Italian night.
The food was superb and the vino was nice and dry.
My room was large and quite compftorable even though I did not spend much time there.
Much to see and do in this historic and scenic part of Nova Scotia.
I will be back ASAP.
What a spot...
The rooms are lovely, and the breakfast was fabulous (the homemade bread and preserves are addictive).
The Inn Keepers were really friendly and very knowledgeable about their area (some of our vacation highlights were because of their suggestions).
I would highly recommned a visit... I've been there twice already and am going back next year.
