A lovely spot. The people are friendly and helpful. Made calls to local restaurants for us to confirm they were still open for business at 8:00pm. We ended up in a restaurant with a 3 piece music group from Halifax and had a great time chatting to them between songs. Our only difficulty was attempting to get our Garmin GPS to recognize their address. My wife eventually did. Fortunately was able to goggle map it while still at home, so we could find it that way.
We upgraded to the romance package as we had 11 years ago and the experiment was exceptional! The food is amazing and the rooms are very clean and comfy for an old Inn. The omelet for breakfast was a very quaint touch to the free continental style breakfast and was exceptional following with the same quality as the dinner had been. Very friendly staff and would highly recommend this Inn.
We stayed at the Surfside for a Saturday night getaway. It was really nice, the service was excellent and breakfast was delicious! So quiet and peaceful. I would go back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. very quaint.
The service was excellent, the entire place is very clean and charming. The beds are very comfortable. The rooms are cozy and the food was excellent. Highly recommend and can't wait to stay here again!
Our 28th Anniversary was celebrated in style, the room was excellant, the beds are very compfy and quiet, but the meal was the best , the chef is excellant the steak and chicken just melts in your mouth ...had a wonderful stay...
I booked the Hideaway Suite with the perfection package for my parents for their 30th Anniversary! They loved it! The service was wonderful and the rooms were clean and had lots of character! The steak and seafood chowder were AMAZING! Definitely recommended!
Great service when we checked in, right until we left. We had a very nice room with a view of the water. So nice to hear the waves crashing on the shore at night. Comfortable bed. Only had the included breakfast, but it was good. Close to town.
This Inn is only a 1-2 minute walk to Queensland Beach. It had plenty of free parking. Breakfast was fresh and good. The room was clean and comfortable and had a great water view. The bathroom was updated and spacious. The free NetFlix came in handy on a rainy night. Nice deck area with a beautiful water view. The Inn does not allow consumption of alcoholic beverages on the deck or any where on the exterior grounds unless it is purchased form them. We found 3 or 4 restaurants within a 5 minute drive, none were walkable. Since we were on a 12 day road trip, a mini fridge would have been nice but the attendant gladly froze our ice packs for us. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the Surfside Inn. Jim S. Columbia, MD USA
My boyfriend and I decided to get a room here for New Years Eve. We knew it was going to be an older room, but it was perfect for what we wanted. We stayed in the smaller Victorian style room which had a very cozy feel- kind of had the comforting feeling of staying at your grandmothers house. We shared a small dinner that night when we got there late and it was delicious! While we were eating dinner we asked the gentleman at the front desk to put our bottle of wine in the fridge and they gave it back to us on a platter with two wine glasses and a rose- amazing! Breakfast the next day was also great- they offered to make us omelettes which was a nice surprise and everything else was nicely laid out with a good little selection. The fireplace in the dining room made it extra cozy!
This was our third year in a row to spend our Anniversary night at Surfside Inn, we have never had a bad experience there. We always buy the supper package and the food is definitely 5 star. Will be going back next year and advise others to check it out.
Needed a weekend away and the Surfside Inn gave us the perfect opportunity. Secluded and romantic but still close enough that we took day trips to Lunenburg and Mahone Bay. Would definitely come back, didn't have a chance to experience the dining hence the 4 stars, but the menu certainly sounded like it would have been great.
We stayed at Surfside Inn in November to celebrate a birthday. What an amazing place to do that. We got a free upgrade to the Surfside Retreat room - thank you again for this gift. This room had its own entrance with a private little balcony that gave us a view of the ocean. We were able to sit outside and watch the sun set on this beautiful November day. We also got the romance package which included a bottle a champagne, chocolates in the room and a delicious dinner that evening. The food was delicious! We both had the seafood chowder followed by the seafood linguine. To finish, we ate an amazing cheesecake. It was a very romantic dinner - just the two of us by the fireplace. Breakfast was also delicious the following morning. We were able to get late check out and enjoy the double Jacuzzi before our departure. Thank you Natalie and Serge for the excellent service at your Inn. We'll be back!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Surfside. There were many simple and special pleasures: the waves crashing outside our windows, the beach a few steps away, the comfortable and cozy room, delicious breakfasts. We were made to feel welcome and received good suggestions for our time. My husband and I had never been to Nova Scotia before. After our stay here we hope to return.
My Husband and I stayed at the Surfside Inn October 12/13. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite and booked the romance package.The package includes chilled champagne, chocolate truffles and a 3 course dinner for two. We were a tad bit disappointed to find that the chocolate truffles were simply 2 Ferrero Rocher chocolates however, our dinner was great! Hubby had the Prime Alberta Striploin and I had the Baked Atlantic Salmon, the cheesecake was delicious! The room was very clean and had a lovely view of the ocean. I grew up near the ocean and absolutely LOVED hearing the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. The sound lulled me to sleep. The jacuzzi tub is a nice feature however, the inn keeprs ask that guests refrain from turning on the jets when other guests may be sleeping. The contintental breakfast in the morning was light and refreshing. It included fruit, granola, yogurt, toast, juice and cofee - unfortunately, the coffee was cold. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the inn. We would definitely consider returning again.
My fiancé and I had visited this inn on a whim and had not heard anything about it prior to going. We booking the Surfside Retreat room, with the romance package. We when arrived the room was set up with chilled wine and delicious truffles, the room was extremely clean, along with the large double whirlpool. The food for the three course meal (which you choose the time you wish to eat) was absolutely amazing and some of the best food I have ever eaten. The scenery was beautiful with the beach across from the Inn. The hostess was very friendly and helpful, as well as the server during the meal. Everything was perfect for us. The service was great, the rooms were clean, the facility was beautiful and the food was absolutely delicious. We loved it so much, that we are set to go back in November 2013. Well worth the money spent.
I had visited the Surfside Inn when Bill and Michelle were the owners. Ines, Alex and her parents now run the "B&B", and they smother you with hospitality and love! Rooms are very clean. The Jacuzzi Tubs were a pleasure. Whenever I wanted Lunch or Dinner, they were very agreeable to make my stay something special. They talked me into coming back in September! I would give them 5 STARS! It was worth the trip all the way from the West Coast. Robert
My husband and I spent a week at Surfside Inn. We took the smallest room and it was delightful. The small rooms are on a corner so you have two windows that offer a cross breeze and you can listen to the waves hitting the shore at night. The Inn is extremely clean and eclectic. Breakfast is healthy and Bill offers fresh brewed coffee served from a lovely sterling silver coffee pot. Also there is homemade jam, great granola, an assortment of bread and fresh fruit. Bill (the owner) is very helpful and a pleasure to talk to. We have stayed at more expensive Inns in the area and this Inn offers everything they offered and more. Thanks Bill for a wonderful week! Also, the trees we took home are still alive. Thanks for the the tools, etcetera, to get them. Much appreciated.
