Sandstone Bed and Breakfast, located just north of New Glasgow, Nova Scotia in Little Harbour, is a renovated (c1850) farmhouse which has two spacious air conditioned rooms with queen beds, ensuite 4 piece bathrooms, WIFI, cellular access, Satellite TV service and a coffee maker in each room. Included is a full breakfast from our menu. This Bed and Breakfast has been rated as a 4 ½ star accommodation by Canada Select.
Our central location puts us close to Melmerby Beach Provincial Park (5Km) one of the most popular beaches in Nova Scotia with life guard service, change rooms, toilets, & showers and to Powell’s Point Provincial Park (1 Km.) where you can hike, bike, picnic, kayak & swim. Both beaches boast of having the warmest waters north of the Carolinas. Nearby there are 3 golf courses namely the Abercrombie Country Club (12 km.), the Glen Lovat Golf Club (9 km), and the Eagles Chance (Par 3) Golf course (15 km). The ferry terminal to/from PEI is only 30 minutes away. Port Hastings, your entry point to Cape Breton Island, is 110 km east of here. St. FX University in Antigonish is a 45 minute drive. The Halifax Stanfield International Airport is only 140 km or 1 ½ hour car ride.
The farmhouse is situated near the centre of 5 acres of rolling countryside which includes many large maple, spruce, pine and birch trees and undulating green fields. The humming birds, chickadees, gold finches and other wild birds can be viewed at the feeders from our screened porch and the deer may make an appearance nibbling on the grassy knolls or eating fallen apples from the dozen or more apple trees on our property.
Our breakfasts are prepared from locally grown food as much as possible. For example our bacon and sausages come from a local Nova Scotia meat processor, “The Pork Shop”. Bev’s home-made muffins and fresh fruit cocktail are specialties of the house and our home-made jams are a favourite topping for toast.
