Nova Scotia Inn Named One of Canada's Top Nine Romantic Hotels

Love is in the air on Nova Scotia's Eastern Shore as Canoe Travel names DesBarres Manor Inn as one of Canada's nine most romantic hotels.

Canoe Travel, one of Canada's leading travel networks, made the announcement as part of Romantic Awareness Month. "Visitors recognize Nova Scotia's DesBarres Manor Inn for blending traditional elegance with modern luxury," wrote Canoe on their top romantic hotels list. "Situated in the lovely seaside village of Guysborough, the restored 1837 historic inn provides gracious maritime hospitality."

"It's a great honour to be on Canoe's list of Canada's most romantic hotels and to be the only hotel they selected in Atlantic Canada," said Glynn Williams, Proprietor. We are truly humbled to be among such a distinguished group of hotels and are delighted to see our reputation as a romantic Nova Scotia getaway continue.

Others selected by Canoe were the Fairmont Banff Springs, Chateau Frontenac, Niagara on the Lake's Prince of Wales Hotel, Niagara Falls Hilton, Montreal's Hotel Nelligan, BC's Nita Lake Lodge, Toronto's Cosmopolitan Hotel & Spa and Vancouver Island's Abigail's Hotel.

Last year DesBarres Manor Inn was included on Plum Deluxe's list of 10 of the most romantic hotels in the world, MSN Travel's only pick in Atlantic Canada for one of 10 quick and easy Valentine's getaways in Canada and Highway 7's choice for Nova Scotia's most romantic hotel.
