A refined get-away!

This is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed birthday glass of wine on the deck. Our surroundings were wonderful, with great vistas, easy strolls to historic sights and attractive gardens. The rooms are all tastefully decorated and meticulously clean (I’d like to move in!!).
As part of the “silver set”, being of a certain age, we felt very comfortable in this quiet, peaceful home. We were served colourful and delicious breakfasts by very gracious hosts Desmond and Adriana. The Old Lantern is close to Wolfville, nearby wineries, parks and interpretive centres. See full review
