This is a fabulous B and B, with the best hosts. It's location is at Herring Cove, about a 30-minute drive to Halifax city centre and an hour's scenic drive to Peggy's Cove. It's a quiet, beautiful spot, with great views out to the sea from the breakfast area, the room and down on the little jetty. It is very private (you have your own entrance), has a spacious lounge and dining area including a kitchen with the basic essentials. Just around the corner is a small convenience store and an excellent take-out with a huge menu - the fresh fish and chips were the best! Sal's was the perfect place for us to stay - a real relaxed, home away from home. We would definitely stay here again - highly recommend it. A special hug for young Willy the chocolate Labrador.

We stayed a few days at Sal's with Joan and Danny as our hosts along with Willie their labador. Sal's is literally on the water with its own jetty. Excellent facilities with a view across the bay out to the ocean. We were at the end of a couple of months in Canada and we spent our time relaxing on the Jetty, going for walks nearby and catching the bus into Halifax. Joan and Danny were excellent company for breakfast, full of information about Halifax and the surrounding area of Nova Scotia. The room was more than comfortable. Could not think of a better place to sit back and take it easy for a few days.

A wonderful 2 day stay with delightful hosts Joan & Dan. Oh and we cannot forget Willie their playful chocolate Lab! Excellent breakfast in a cozy home. Thank you for our lovely stay. Perfect location to travel about to Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay and Halifax.

We stayed at Sal's after reading the positive reviews on Trip Adviser, and were not disappointed! Our lower level suite was the "Eagle's Nest" Suite and had a private kitchen/dining area that was convenient as we were off schedule for eating while on the trip and were able to grab a carry-out pizza one night and eat there without the worry of dropping food on the furniture or bedding. Our beds were comfortable and the entire suite decorated with a lovely nautical theme. The Suite has a private back door with a view of the cove and is a very short walk down to a private boating dock with several lovely chairs perfect for soaking in the sun while enjoying the sounds and sights of this charming little cove. For breakfast, we were given a choice of four different options. Between the three of us, I believe we tried them all and everything was delicious. Breakfast was served upstairs in the great room overlooking the cove. We can't say enough about the owners and their hospitality! We HIGHLY recommend the Eagle's Nest at Sal's if booking for 1-3 adults (mature tween/teens probably OK) or 1-5 adults if booking both rooms. Excellent value for an unbeatable view!

Sal's is actually by the sea. We could look out our patio door through St. Margaret's Bay into the Atlantic. The Eagle's Nest (actually on the lower level) included living room, kitchenette, bath and bedroom, with a private entrance. Our patio door opened into the yard leading to the dock with chairs to sit and watch the boats come in and out of the cove. a 25 minute drive took us into the Halifax harbor district, or down the coast to Crystal Crescent Beach. Joan and Danny were super hosts, going a few steps beyond expectations and providing a great breakfast to order.

We had two great nights in Sals, even got to play their beautiful old piano. Good location right on the waters edge and our hosts were able to provide information on good places to eat in Halifax and local walks. Great beaches juts up the coast. DOwntown Halifax just 25'minites by car.Very friendly hosts.

We highly recommend this B&B . Perfect location 10 minutes from Halifax downtown with amazing views of the ocean . Our suite was very roomy with separate bedroom and living area and doors opening to a patio to have morning coffee and watch ships go by. Breakfasts were delicious! Hosts Joan and Danny became friends immediately with great conversations and helpful tourist advice.

A lovely couple running this b&b and what a stunning view there is from the deck. Room is reasonable size with separate bathroom. Nice breakfast and pleasant conversation. Helpful tourist tips also provided. Free WiFi provided and good car parking. Dining options are in Halifax.

The facilities were clean and perfectly done. The meals were delicious and filling. Joan and Danny were amazing hosts and so was their dog, Skipper. The view is breath-taking and is a wonderful place to stay in Halifax.

Sal's B&B is about 10 minutes from downtown Halifax nestled in quiet, scenic Herring Cove. Walk out the back door of your apartment, sit in the lawn chairs and take in the sights of the pilot boat and ships coming into port. The mini apartment is private, roomy and comfortable. Hosts Joan and Danny are so helpful and kind. They made us feel welcome and relaxed. Great place to stay.
