I highly recommend this B&B. Mahone Bay is a beautiful place, the B&B is in a great location and the owners go out of there way to make your visit a memorable one.Location is very central to many things to do in the area.

Situated between two historic churches and set back from the waterfront, this historic building offered us a fun stay in suitably decorated Captain's Quarters. Our hosts were keen to provide all we needed including fresh milk and dinner recommendations. Breakfast was excellent, starting with fresh fruit and then baked treats warm from the oven, followed by the signature "whale" cooked dish. It was within easy walking distance of all of Mahone Bay.

Hurricane Dorian didn’t dampen the hospitality of Bruce and Lisa even without power! The Cap’t s quarters were amazing and tastefully appointed! The bathroom was amazing too! The food was delicious! We even received a discount on bike rentals when we said we were staying there! Situated between two old white churches with a view of the water , we enjoyed the warmth of the fluffy blankets available at the door as we sat in the brightly colored Adirondack chairs out front! A true great B&B experience rounded off with them packing my forgotten items and sending them back to me! I would recommend this for the travelers who want either a quiet romantic stay to the ones who are eager to experience the local scene with some friendly folks!

Mahone Bay is a beautiful town and Fisherman's Daughter is a good place to stay when you visit. The house is nicely restored and rooms are comfortable. It was hot when we were there and A/C worked fine. Our hosts were very kind in their accommodation of my dairy free diet.

I'll start with the positives: The location is fabulous, the house is lovely and Bruce is a wealth of information. The negatives: Two inch bolts stick out from the front screen door and my travel companion was nailed in the arm when the door struck him as he was bringing in our bags. The wound was significant and required multiple bandage changes over the next few days. The bolt's need to be sawed off or covered..they are dangerous. The owners seemed less than concerned. We came back to our room at the end of the day and the bed was not made up, the full wastebasket was not emptied and the towels not changed. I had to request fresh towels. The basket was emptied the next day. The bed however, was never made. Also the bottom sheet would not stay in place. The main course for breakfast was the same each day (we were there 3 days). The signature dish (poached egg on hash brown potatoes and ham) was nice once, but not 3 times in a row. Other guests who had been there when we arrived stop eating it. It was the only protein available other than yogurt. Each day it was presented with a flourish as their "signature dish". Nothing else was offered. The 3rd day was a bit awkward around the table as 3 of us turned it down and the others wanted to know if there was something wrong with it. Pastries were a mix of freshly baked (nicely done) and commercial. The cereals nothing special. I have stayed at numerous B&Bs over the years and have found the breakfast main course to be different every day: it's a part of the B&B experience. I don't think it's an unreasonable expectation. I expect a full breakfast when I'm paying for one..... We stayed at 2 other B&Bs subsequent to this one and both had outstanding breakfast menu offerings.

The location The house The room The lawn chairs are all very nice but the best part of this B&B are the owners Lisa and Bruce go out of their way to make you feel welcome oh and the breakfast will keep you going until supper time.

Great place in Mahone Bay that is located between the 3 churches. Owners Lisa and Bruce were awesome hosts and a wealth of information on the area. room was cute and comfy. We enjoyed the chairs outside looking towards the bay. The breakfast was excellent and tasty

We stayed three nights at The Cove, located a few minutes away from the B&B. It was a two bedroom apartment with full kitchen, dining area, living room, etc. The hosts were great. We couldn’t have been happier with our stay. The only criticism I have for this property was that they were reluctant to rent to us due to traveling with our 4 year old and there being a set of stairs in the apartment (that you don’t use). We felt comfortable with this as our daughter is very competent with stairs, but I think the easy solution would be to install a small gate at the top of the stairs.

My wife and I just spent a one night get away at the Fisherman's Daughter. We were very happy we had booked our stay there.Everything about it first rate. Location, cleanliness, room all great. And the breakfast, exceptional.

We had a very nice stay in the beautiful town of Mahone Bay and especially at The Fisherman’s Daughter. Owners Lisa and Bruce were awesome hosts and we enjoyed immensely visiting with them! Breakfast was especially yummy!
