President's Message

Welcome to Nova Scotia and to the Nova Scotia Bed & Breakfast Association’s website. 

When you choose an Association property, you will be staying in a traditional Bed and Breakfast where your hosts reside. There are four rooms or fewer and breakfast is provided at no additional cost. Each of our properties offers the traditional “B&B Experience”. You will be welcomed with genuine warmth and offered the very best our hosts have to offer – comfortable beds, good food and interesting conversation – all in a “home away from home” atmosphere. Share the experiences you have had with other guests whilst relaxing with a nice cup of tea or coffee.
All member properties of the NSBBA are government licensed and either meet or exceed the inspection guidelines set out by the Nova Scotia Department of Tourism, Culture and Heritage. All properties are inspected on a regular basis and, in addition, each property adheres to the Association’s published “Code of Conduct” to ensure our guests have a quality experience.
Our member properties are located throughout the province in our cities, towns, villages and rural hamlets. Architectural designs range from heritage properties to farms to contemporary homes.
Some of our members subscribe to property rating companies in addition to their membership in our association. Rating systems determine the extent of the facilities, guest’s services and amenities offered.
Your B&B hosts will be happy to tell you all about the local restaurants, beaches, trails, golf courses, festivals, musical events, museums and other cultural points of interest.

Above all, we are committed to providing an unequalled level of hospitality and a quality experience. We look forward to welcoming you into our homes.

Nova Scotia famous for our Hospitalitea!!
