Go see Allen and Joan Redmund for a great experience. Coopers Inn, which dates back to the 1700's is in a most scenic area. Full harbour views. The best restaurant in Nova Scotia (reservations required) and about 6 enchanting rooms and one unbelieveable suite. The deep bathtub in the suite has a wonderful view of the harbour! Breakfasts are included and are great. Meals in the restaurant are supurb and quite reasonably priced when compared to a big city price in the US. Very nice and pleasingly priced wine list. The village of Shellbourne is where most of the recent movie the Scarlet Letter was filmed. Many of the buildings are ancient and in wonderful shape. Don't miss a tour of the Dory Shop which is a few meters from Cooper's Inn. Ican't seem to edit this. Shelbourne is not on Fundy!
It's on the Atlantic side of Nova Scotia. Sorry about the mistitling! Also, I've been asked if I would have liked the Cooper's Inn more if it had been a small hotel rather than a B & B. Hard question! I don't know what the differences would have been other than perhaps breakfast costing extra. Let's just say that Cooper's Inn is wonderful the way it is, including a fine breakfast.
