Guest love our Inn!

What a gem of a place. Of course the place itself was made much better by the people. Melissa the friendly hostess was attentive to every detail. She even got us last minute tickets to a local variety show in support of the local health centre. There are some phenomenally talented musicians and very funny people in Hants County. The meal itself that we had at the B & B before the event could not have been better. Service was excellent. My wife had a fish chowder and I had a spring garden vegetable salad with prawns. Everything is sourced locally or from sustainable growers.The hearty breakfast included bacon, eggs in whatever fashion, toast with homemade jam, fruit juice from Terra Beata, yogurt and fruit as well as delicious and plentiful Just Us coffee. The homemade jam (especially the blueberry/vanilla , real vanilla bean) was so good we had to bring a bottle home with us. The place is a bit out of the way but well worth the drive in the country. We will definitely be back!

Great Getaway and fantastic time, one of the best. Reviewed by brian154974 on TripAdvisor, May 2018

Our Flying Apron stay was a fantastic part of our journey. The family and staff so welcoming and accommodating and the establishment itself is a really cool inn. Our room was decent size and everything was updated nicely. The food was all prepared excellently including the desserts and (if you stay) the breakfast. The inn is also centrally located so you can make several quick day trips to see the various scenic sites available in Nova Scotia.

Great Hospitality Reviewed by Jonathan F. on TripAdvisor, Aug 2018

Owners Chris and Melissa Velden whip up excellent fare, including the breakfast included with the room! Chef Chris was Director of Culinary Arts for three years at the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts. Melissa, a baker and former restaurant manager, brings her expertise and recipes to the inn. Rooms are cozy and comfortable. Thank you for a delightful stay!
