Was riding through on my motorcycle and called a few B&B in range. Liked the courteous response over the phone and glad I chose this place. Room was clean and had all the amenities. Shower stall was tight, but for me it accented the charm of this 103 year old house. Breakfast was sumptuous & presented elegantly. Was served in a quaint room overlooking the lawn and ocean. Owners were polite and courteous. Would like to come again with my wife someday (will have to be on 4 wheels though).
My wife made reservations here for my 40th Birthday and what an awesome meal experience. We chose the Caribbean theme which had a variety plate starter of jumbo shrimp, salad and bread, very yummy. Next came a very delicious soup with very odd I thought bananas in it. The main course was jerk chicken and fish all tasty and topped off with dessert and coffee. We brought our own bottle of wine with only a $5 corkage fee. We both liked the variety and taste of the food and left with a very full bellies , I would highly recommend eating here.
Happy GuestBedford, Canada
Very quiet and cozy room, with very comfortable bed and bedding, and an exceptional dining experience, both for supper and breakfast.
Overall very enjoyable. Good central location on the North Shore for exploring the area.
My wife and I were at celebration barbecue at friends in Wallace and spent the night at the Jubilee. The hosts/owners were very hospitable. We stayed in the Sandpiper room which was nicely appointed with a comfortable bed and a fireplace. A delicious breakfast was served at 8.30 am which had crispy bacon, a hearty portion of scrambled eggs, two kinds of toast and a lots of fresh fruit. Topped off with a nice Greek Yogurt topped with hemp hearts…. They are good for you. Would not hesitate to recommend the Jubilee cottage!
This was our third time dinning at Jubilee Cottage. Friday night was “Now and Zen” Asian cuisine. The menu includes an appetizer, soup, 2 mains and dessert. Coffee and herbal teas as well. It is a BYO wine. Only $5 corking fee. Call ahead for reservations. Since it is a small family operation the menu is set for the evening. There are other themes on other nights. A great value at $42 each plus $5 corking fee if you bring wine.
A last minute call, but they had a room; I only live an hour away, but just needed a breather in different surroundings. I was there by 9:00 pm and the hosts were most gracious and accommodating.
The room was charming and cozy and clean with a private en suite bathroom w/shower. It had large windows, was quiet, with great linens.
I told the owner I was more interested in sleeping in and not to worry about breakfast, but after reading a bit in the morning I did need coffee and headed down.
In only a few minutes I was surprised to be presented an enormous plate of food: herbed scrambled eggs, delicious sausages, ripe avacado, four or five sliced in-season fruits, fried meaty mushrooms, 3 types of toast, jams, etc.WOW!! Glad I didn’t miss that after all – and I wasn’t even expecting it!
The kind and unobtrusive hosts and other guests and myself chatted over breakfast and then I made my way back to my room, and crawled back into my comfortable bed until check-out time.
I had been to the Jubilee Cottage several times for the AMAZING evening dining cuisine they provide, but now I know I will be staying over-night each time I go for dinner. For the price, the breakfast, and the generally terrific stay, how can I not?! A perfect little ‘staycation’ breather, for which I am thankful, and will be back.
