The 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.
