About the innkeepers

Our passion is gardening, but we are deeply involved in our community through the theatre, local food bank, and tourist centre. We stay involved on the boards of local and provincial Bed and Breakfast Associations. We enjoy an evening stroll at the beach to watch the local seals and birds.
