Our room was lovely, our hosts welcoming and accomodating and it was great to walk to the waterfront (which is close!) Breakfast was yummy! We were given a few suggestions for dinner and ate at Trio (in Cambridge Hotel) and enjoyed a great meal. Another night we ate at Governors Pub and Eatery which was also fun (great music) and...

George and Cottage bed and breakfast was an amazing experience. I was lucky enough to stay in two rooms, both of which were very different but amazing. I couldn't have asked for better food, location and better hosts. They went above and beyond what I expected and always made sure I was safe as I was traveling solo. I would... More

Our room was one of the nicer ones during our 7 days of B&B's throughout N.S. and PEI. We had the upstairs back room overlooking the gorgeous back yard. My wife LOVED the old fashioned soaker tub. Room also had a very small quaint sitting room attached that overlooked the well presented yard and pond. Enjoyed a terrific dinner at... More

We stayed here for 2 nights for Celtic Colours. Carolyn gave us helpful suggestions from the time I called to make a reservation and upon our visit. It was our first time to the Island and to this event. She told me that it was a five hour drive from Halifax and that I should get tickets to the music... More

We stayed at George and Cottage for just one night after getting off the ferry in North Sydney. We were delighted at the location, right next to a walking area with duck ponds, and a short distance to both downtown and the shopping mall. The rooms were very clean and we slept like babes in the cozy bed. The owners... More

My husband and I stayed at the George and Cottage B&B for only one night, a pit stop between Halifax and flying to St. Pierre and Miquelon. We didn't arrive until about 7:30pm as we drove the beautiful Cabot Trail to get there, which took quite a long time. The hosts, Bill and Carolyn, were out for a walk when... More

My husband and I stayed at George and Cottage for one night in September, 2010, and truly enjoyed our stay. Bill and Carolyn are excellent hosts, and the house itself is very charming. The breakfast was delicious... maybe the best we had on our two-week trip of the Maritimes. A hidden gem!

My wife and I stayed more night than expected in Sydney and couldn't be happier with our accomodation. We were close to Fort Louisbourg, Sydney Mines and other attractions. We also found some fast paced Irish music sessions nearby. Bill and Carolyn are excellent hosts. Their establisment is warm and inviting and breakfast was something to look forward to each... More
