2013 B&B season is here.

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Sue and I were debating whether we should go on vacation in February or not, we both felt it is cheating when the weather in Nova Scotia is so mild all winter. While we were trying to decide our decision was made for us, we started getting reservations! We are excited that this year is starting over a month earlier than 2012 did. We both had such an enjoyable time with the B&B in 2012 we are really looking forward to 2013!

Summer is here!

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

It is well into summer and we have had a great time here at Creekside meeting new friends and enjoying the beautiful weather in the Valley.  We were thrilled to have our first newlywed couple spend their wedding night, and enjoyed great company and conversation with visiting guests.  We also enjoy the non-registered ‘guests’ that spend the summer with us, its particularly fun to see the ones that were not here when we grew up (the American Gold Finches for example.)

Yes, they really do eat upside down.

Fall in the Valley

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

One of the things we missed the most about the Valley was fall, this one did not disappoint.  The warm days and cool evenings have been great, seeing the apples, grapes, corn, hay, pumpkins etc. being harvested brings a peaceful feeling.  Snow is coming but with double digit temperatures until late November I’m sure it won’t last long.

The summer was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our first summer as B&B owners, we are looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones.

September update

Saturday, November 6th, 2010

Our house is finished!  Now we just have opening day in May to look forward to.  The new colors on the house look great, finish and trim is done, the sun room is my favorite place.  Sue and my Mother did a great job refinishing the chairs we bought.

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

If you are in the area we would love it if you would stop by, even if just to say hello.  Mike and I hope to see you as we take another step in our adventures on May 20, 2011!

July update

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

Sue and her sister (Mary) are back with photos and stories of their adventures during their three week trip to Creekside Bed and Breakfast.  I put most of the photos on our Facebook page (see link above), a few select ones will be included here.

    The weather was great for their visit, hovering between 27 and 32c during the day and cooling off to around 18c overnight.  While this would be great for visiting the girls had lots of work to get done so they took the occasional time off from the hectic working and shopping to enjoy the Valley.  

  The work was setting up rooms to get a feel for the final layouts and the furniture. Sue and Mary had a grand time doing this but it was hard work moving beds, chairs, tables and dressers about. You can see the results of their hard work in the attached photos.  Our carpenters were also working hard and the front deck, portico complete with herring bone patterned ceiling is complete.  Both of these jobs have made an enormous difference in the house, I love the portico!  The painters have started on the exterior of the house and it should be complete by mid-August.  This will leave only the interior trim to be completed and a few odd jobs.

  Sue and Mary’s adventures took them to Margretsville on one particular day to enjoy the shore.  They were thrilled when they arrived to see whales breeching  just off shore.  This small harbour also has some beautiful cliffs with breathtaking waterfalls when the tide is out as you can see by the attached photos.  A local also mentioned that seals regularly sun themselves there when the tide is out.  Of course this trip also include shopping, as they moved on to Port George Sue had the urge to stop into a small antique shop and left with three tables, a mirror and a small dresser.  Sue and Mary also went to a local gem of a spot to hike.  “Rock Notch” is a beatiful area with a small river winding through thick woods and babbling over rough rocks.
