We are your hosts, David & Rosemary Furlong. Welcome to The Garden Bee Bed & Breakfast. Located in Centre Rawdon, Hants County Nova Scotia we offer an atmosphere of quiet country living. Bordered by a brook, our property offers many areas for contemplative meditation.
Our B&B makes a great place as a base to do day trips from when exploring mainland Nova Scotia. Our location is only 35 minutes from the Halifax Stanfield International Airport. Halifax, Kentville and Truro are only 50-60 minutes away. The world's highest tides are only 30 minutes away at Burntcoat Head Park. Lots of shopping, historical sites and fun places to visit only minutes from us. Check out our section of places to visit and things to do for some great ideas of Nova Scotia flavour.
We offer a unique experience in Bed and Breakfast accomodations. Our newly renovated rooms each provide a vista of our ever growing gardens. Rosemary is the avid gardener while David provides help with the heavy lifting. We want to provide you with a very comfortable, country experience and a good feeling that will last beyond your leaving and carry you on your journey.
While we are not homesteaders, our practices are earth friendly and we make the most of what we have to offer. Our philosophy is to reduce, reuse, recycle and spread the word to encourage more people to get back to basics. We craft Beeswax Candles in our home studio for sale globally. We freeze, preserve and dry a variety of herbs, fruits and vegetables for personal consumption, sharing with our family and friends as well as making some available for sale to our guests.
We support many other crafters in our Atlantic Canada community by purchasing their products for our use or make them available through our Bed & Breakfast and online store. We offer links and information on local attractions and events.
Even though we are rural, you will find Free WiFi and limited cellular service available.
We appreciate the opportunity to serve you. Please feel free to ask if you have any questions or let us know if we can be of assistance.
