My family and I stayed at Cleveland Place on August 26th and 27th. This was our first time staying in a B & B. It was a great experience. Jane and Steve are wonderful hosts, their home is beautiful, and the breakfasts were amazing! The attached bookstore and artisan shop were a welcomed treat. I highly recommend a stay at Cleveland Place.

What a magical place Cleveland Place is! My friend and I stayed for two nights in early July, 2011. We were so warmly welcomed by Jane and Steve.

We called ahead to order a lobster dinner for our first night. It was four courses and came with wine and a tutorial on how to attack our massive crustaceans.

The owners had just gotten a beagle puppy and after learning we were dog people they let her come and visit at the table (otherwise she was kept in the back part of the house out of curtesy). But she is too darn cute for that!

They supplied passes to the park and to Hopewell Rocks, and even took our breakfast orders (those pancakes were so good). The meals had so many thoughtful details, like special bowls for lobster butter and homemade yogurt in glass jars.

If ever you get a chance to visit Alma, you MUST stay here

Cleveland Place is just what I had hoped it would be..a cozy BNB with warmth and comfort. We were greeted at the door by the hosts, Jane and Stephen, and shown to our lovely room from which we could see the ocean. The entire house (our room and bathroom even) is appointed with antiques and hand-crafted items, some from artisans in the area (which is another great part of the trip....the local places we visited).

We stayed several days and were always warming greeted when we arrived back from sightseeing. We had wine and good conversation in the evening by a fire lighted to take off the May chill. We were made to feel that we were a welcome addition to the BNB.

Breakfasts were a treat. We could order anything we wanted and it would appear. The presentation of the food was very creative and appealing.....and it all tasted so good. We were tempted to order Eggs Benedict to see how Jane and Stephen would deal with that oddball request but didn't have the heart to tease them as they had been so kind to us.

The area is great as well...just on the edge of Fundy National Park with its great variety of hiking trails that we used, the "flowerpots" at Hopewell Cape and other Maritime views. It's amazing how far the boats in Alma harbor fall and then rise with the tide.

All in all, just a great place to stay and to visit. We highly recommend Cleveland Place.

Have been an overnight resident here on three occasions, now long ago. This place is the best!

We spent one night in this most interesting home in July, 2010. We were greeted with an invitation to sit and chat and have a glass of wine. Our dog was welcomed and could even use a large run in the back yard. Our room was large and spotless with a private bathroom. Breakfast was exceptional and Jane kindly joined us and gave us many good travel tips for our journey. We highly recommend Cleveland Place.

Dear Jane and Steve,

Cleveland Place, Alma, New Brunswick is a very special Bed and Breakfast home. To you Jane and Steve, we offer our fond memories of a night to remember. Your warmth and hospitality, celebration and "five star" meal deserves great recognition. To think that you invited us in "right off the streets of Alma" makes this story even more exciting. Your reputation as hosts, fine chefs, and friends needs to be shared with the world at large.

Maritime hospitality is experienced in many ways, in many places in our part of the world, and by many of its peoples regardless of their original nationality. Dave grew up in Yarmouth, NS where contact with Maine and the eastern coast of the USA was a daily event. Brenda grew up at the Nova Scotia border where thousands of visitors passed her road. Hospitality was a way of life of us as young children and has continues to be part of our lives here in Fort Lawrence. Nova Scotia's expression of One Hundred Thousand Welcomes is part of our heritage.

So far, over the years, we have traveled to about fifty countries and enjoyed many distinctive cultures. We have also hosted people from diverse backgrounds. This entire preamble is said to stress the significance of the evening we shared on May 16, 2009. We thank you both for making our stay in Alma such a true celebration.

Dave and Brenda Van Zoost Fort Lawrence, NS.

An outstanding memory. The Maritimes is an area of wonderful people and caring hosts - Jane is in a class by herself. It is the truth - you want to experience New Brunswick - this is it! I don't know how I can say this, but her breakfasts are very, very special. Her chats and tips were the best - You have to come here to see for yourself. Great experience! PS Ask about her soap.

I had the honor of visting Cleveland Place a few months ago and I have to say it was an extraordinary experience. It is by far the most beautiful and peaceful place that I have ever been to and highly recommend this place to everyone that needs time to just relax and...just breathe. You feel so at peace at Cleveland Place that you never want to go home. I loved Cleveland Place and I cannot wait to go back!!!
