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!

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.

We were looking for a winter get-away & we had a lovely time at Jubliee Cottage Inn. The owners are gracious and welcoming. The bed was very comfortable & the Canada Goose room was spacious. The food was amazing! We had a Thai beef tenderloin salad that was incredible- the beef was from an organic farm down the road. Then, we had a seafood curry with shrimp, scallops cod & salmon, with veggies & rice on the side. The curry was not too spicy- its flavour was perfect with the seafood. Dessert was tiramisu- light and delicious. The owners put a lot of care into sourcing the ingredients and it shows! Breakfast was a beautiful fruit plate followed by fluffy scrambled eggs.
Yes, Wallace is a quiet place, but it is only 20 min from Ski Wentworth & in the summer, there are beaches & golf courses nearby.
We are planning to return to Jubilee Cottage Inn.
Very Pleased PatronHalifax, Nova Scotia
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.
This lovely Victorian home has only three rooms, so if you are interested in staying, book early if you are coming in the summer months. The room was beautiful and the bed very comfortable. The huge breakfast in the morning was to good to be true (especially for the price!). If you want a completely quiet and different experience from the chain hotels and horrible overpriced hotels that we ususally find in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, come here! And the food is to die for. Unfortunately we were not able to make it the night before for dinner, but hope to next time. The Sunrise Trail is a beautiful, rural stretch of highway that is a very nice diversion from the trans-Canada highway as well. Loved it!
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!
