Happy people"Dear Ama Phyllis,
Thank you for welcoming us so warmly at the Three Thistles. From your tranquil garden to your delicious, healthy breakfasts, you have created a restful, relaxing and wonderful environment. We are so glad we made your B & B and Mahone Bay the beginning of our journey around the South Shore. Thank you."

"I've never been to a spa but your B & B is how I imagine a spa would be like - with its warm welcoming atmosphere in beautiful surroundings. I love the decor and attention to detail; pretty and comfortable bedding, pleasant lighting, lovely soaps, etc. I experienced a feeling of serenity & well-being in your home. Thank you, Phyllis, for a truly remarkable experience."

Brita - St. Catherines, Ontario


"What a lovely warm welcome you gave us when we arrived very tired after our long journey from our home near Lock Ness in Scotland. Our room is perfect - it's tranquil atmosphere and comfy bed ensuring a good sleep. You have thought of everything we might need, and such care for your guests is much appreciated! Wonderful breakfast prepared with love and care - the good energies in your home and your heart shine through! We hope to be back very soon. Love, light & laughter be yours."

Alex and Jacob - Scotland


"My week here was a joy. I loved the tranquil spirit of the place and, of course, the gourmet vegan breakfasts. Very few would have gone to the trouble you went through to accommodate my strict vegetarian 'inclinations' and to have done it with such style. Your kindness and thoughtfulness were immensely appreciated."

" This holiday we have so far stayed in nine B & B's, which have all been a delight - but the Three Thistles is incomparable - genuinely the finest! From the warm welcoming, beautiful relaxing decor, exquisite breakfasts, the many special amenities to Phyllis' helpful suggestions (they weren't in any travel guide) but they made our visit a joy! The Three Thistles is truly a hidden treasure in this beautiful quaint town!"

Brent & Camille - Calgary, Alberta

P.S. We give this B & B 5 *****


"The energy surrounding this wonderful old house is just enhanced by the simplicity of the furnishings. Everyone should sit by the pond and bathe in its calming influence. I will return. Thank you Phyllis."

"I am grateful to All that is for sending me here. Phyllis has created a most marvelous place to stay. The energy here is remarkably high. We've had one of the most beautiful times of the summer at the Three Thistles. Thank you for the tasty organic breakfast also, I could taste love in my food this morning."

Namaste, Nieves & Damon - Spain & Nova Scotia


"Thank you, Phyllis, for your hospitality, marvelous breakfast & most of all your attention to healthy living - from the fragrance-free soaps, shampoo, etc. to the absence of fabric softeners & 'deodorizers' to the organic food. We'll be back."

Ruth & Herb - Halifax, Nova Scotia


"We were s-o-o impressed with your 'Just Us' coffee this morning - isn't it great to know when we're getting our caffeine jolt in the mornings - the coffee farmers are actually getting a fair price for their efforts!"

Jim & Myrna - P.E.I.
