Hello, we are Deane & Nancy Allen and we would love to host you at our family home in Amherst, Nova Scotia.
We also have a friendly four-legged feline named “Rusty the Cat” who only occupies our private area (he’s off limits to guest rooms), but he may greet you at the door when you arrive.
We enjoy making recommendations about things to see and do in the area, as well as local events and activities.
Antique car enthusiasts are welcome!
Verne and Devota Brown officially opened their doors as a guest home to the travelling public in 1955.
It began as a request from existing guest homes needing a place for their overflow of tourists.
Verne and Devota served the traveling public for 29 years, until their retirement in 1984.
Nancy (daughter of Verne and Devota Brown) and husband, Deane Allen, purchased the guest home in 1984.
Upon Nancy’s own retirement from the bank, she and Deane changed their guest home into a bed and breakfast.
The traveling public have enjoyed the hospitality of this family business for over 60 years.
