The Regent Bed & Breakfast

Main Foyer Up 2010 WR2The Regent Bed & Breakfast is located in charming and historic Amherst amidst other heritage homes on famous Victoria Street. Masterfully built by Rhodes Currie Co. in 1898, this spectacular Georgian house has long been admired in the area. Its exquisite and ornate wood trim, five fireplaces and 26 stained and leaded glass windows (all original) are particularly stunning. Owners Jim and Gwen Kerr have created an elegant sanctuary and romantic retreat for people looking to take a short break from the demands of family life, get away from work stress, or have an adventure exploring this captivating area of Nova Scotia.

Each room has been carefully furnished with period items that reflect the spirit and heritage of this great home and is ornately finished with an extraordinary private collection of Inuit art throughout the house. The Regent is much more than just a place to stay overnight. The rich room appointments, incredibly comfortable Simmons mattresses, ensuite baths, complete privacy and security and ideal location will make The Regent one of the highlights of any holiday or weekend retreat.

Visitor review: "What a fabulous home... beautiful woodwork & stained glass; plus their own artwork. Comfortable room. Good location, walking distance to a delicious pub dinner. The breakfast was delicious! Couldn't have been better. And a great chat with the host, too." - Tripadvisor review by Obviously_Jim of Auckland, New Zealand. July 2017

Visitor review: "Welcoming, Homely, and Excellent Value We couldn't've enjoyed a warmer introduction to Nova Scotia than the one we had from Nancy as we arrived at Brown's Guest Home. She really made us feel welcome in her home. Before we'd even asked she furnished us with a leaflet of local restaurants. We chose one she had recommended, which was excellent. The room was comfortable and traditionally furnished. There's also a whole tourist information room, with leaflets, brochures, and maps of all attractions in the local area, which was a real unexpected bonus. Breakfast was abundant with homemade items, starting with a fruit salad and including cakes, pastries, raisin toast, and delicious cranberry marmalade. - Tripadvisor review by SnazzyOwlet of Leeds.
