Come to Nova Scotia for the charming fishing villages; stay for the daily lobster feasts. As one of Canada’s prettiest provinces, Nova Scotia shines in the summer months, when locals flock to beaches, historic lighthouses and nearby hiking trails before autumn sets in. Book at one of these top-notch B&Bs on Canada’s Atlantic coast, all of which are sure to enchant you.

Sitting pretty on the Fergusons Cove waterfront, Seawatch Bed and Breakfast is close enough to Nova Scotia’s provincial capital of Halifax that you can explore the area easily, but far enough away for a good dose of fresh sea air. Each of the two suites is dressed in nautical decor and breakfast is served in-room each morning. Eat this on your private balcony and see if you can spot some of the whales that frequent the harbour.

    Mahone Bay B&B is also located in the pretty village of Mahone Bay. It’s best visited in autumn when the leaves turn various shades of red, orange and gold. When you’re not taking in the quaint town, take time to marvel at the pale-yellow Victorian-era homestead with its gingerbread veranda. Rooms are modern, and decorated in white and blue hues. The B&B is eco-friendly, too, with Mahone Bay’s very first electric car charging station.

Summer sees four-course lobster suppers served every Wednesday and Sunday evening, alongside live Celtic music. Rooms are luxe, with whirlpool tubs in the ensuites and local artwork adorning the walls. Breakfast changes daily, but expect fare such as goat cheese quiche, breakfast tacos, buddha bowls and whiskey porridge.
