October 2016 Fam Jam in Nova Scotia

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 traveled from Illinois to enjoy a Nova Scotia autumn in the castle. The pictures online looked amazing and we were not disappointed. The castle was warm and inviting, spacious, and charmingly decorated. Anastacia was wonderful to us and was easily reached by text message. We enjoyed the hot tub as the heated pool was closed early because of the remnants of Hurricane Matthew. Our 3-year old grandson also enjoyed the toys she had in the footstools! I highly recommend the castle stay. We hope to make it back someday!

DON'T MISS STAYING HERE

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to stay while in the Halifax area. We wanted something central so we could explore all around Nova Scotia, especially Peggy's Cove and the South Shore. We looked at a few places but then received a call from the owner of the Bedford Castle in Bedford. She told us we could come and look at it. The house was ideally located in a beautiful residential neighborhood a short drive from stores and restaurants , downtown Halifax, and the South Shore, as well as some great natural wonders like Cape Split. The instant we met the owner and were invited into her lovely home we knew we wanted to stay there (I wanted to just live there:) The castle like home couldn't be anymore beautiful and at the same time warm and inviting. The owner has lovingly made sure the house has everything you could possibly want. The grounds are gorgeous and there is a lovely pool and hot tub. We stayed in early spring so still a bit chilly for the pool but made great use of the big hot tub. I could see just staying all day at the house in the nice weather and laying around the pool.

Get ready for the most comfortable beds you have every slept in complete with amazing sheets and comforter! I just can't say enough good things about this house. The owner is available if you need her for anything but also makes sure she is not interfering in anyway with your stay. Not a worry for us because not only did we have the best renter possible we have become great friends with her in the ten days we stayed there! If she wasn't on the opposite side of the continent I know we would be seeing a lot of each other.
