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.
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).
We made reservations for anniversary dinner. The food was incrediable as was the host and hostess.very nice view of ocean from dining room will definately go again!

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.

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!
Lovely cosy comfortable rooms, full of charm. Our room had a fireplace and ensuite, and the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. The ambience in this period home is very soothing and the music wafting through the puts you at peace. The full breakfast is scrumptious and be sure to stay on for the dinners. Perfect place for your country getaway!
