We stayed at the Fisher House with 2 other couples in Sept 2013. We found the house through Holdsworth House website and after discussing arrangements with Tony and Margaret from the B and B decided it would be our best option. Upon arrival we met Tony whose B & B is directly across the street from the house, were given the keys and shown around. Tony and his wife Margaret were very helpful all week in numerous ways, the perfect hosts.
The house met all of our requirements and more with 3 large double rooms, 2 large modern bathrooms and a very well equipped kitchen. The large house has a character all its own & is decorated in a distinctive Scottish flavor. The owners live in Scotland most of the year apparently. The only disappointment was the large deck off the rear patio door was under construction and was not available .A shame since the yard is a hidden gem with complete privacy and a sun trap to boot.
We also thoroughly enjoyed our week in Digby, finding some great local fish suppliers, a couple of great restaurants and numerous quaint shops all only 5 minutes walk from the house. We also played golf at the Pines, 5 minutes away & went on a local whale watching trip which left us speechless seeing several humpbacks almost close enough to touch!
We have just booked a couple of weeks in May which prompted me to do this review of last fall's trip. Already looking forward to reacquainting ourselves with the house and the area. You will not be disappointed here!
Our stay at this house could not have been better. It is well located , an easy walk to downtown and the waterfront. This property has very spacious principal rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms, and a lovely deck overlooking a gorgeous landscaped garden. Its decor is charming and warm and invites you to experience a comfortable holiday in your home away from home. Friendly neighbours are a bonus. It will not be long before you have made many new friends.
Vacationing in Digby affords you many opportunities to explore the Fundy Coast and many quaint and interesting areas of Nova Scotia. A variety of opportunities await you.
You will certainly enjoy your time here.
