Welcome to Terra Bella by the Shore

Built in 1904 by a local doctor, this tree-lined bed and breakfast, set in a historic Victorian mansion (formerly called Victorian Veranda) next to the Gaspereau River in Port Elgin and minutes to the ocean, features private baths with spa tubs, free Wi-Fi, parking and natural surroundings.

Organic and local gourmet food (when available), stained glass windows throughout and situated on the tidal Gaspereau River make this property unique and a place to call your own, a ‘home away from home.’

We have spa and wellness services too if you decide to spend a little extra time with us and hiking trails to roam and discover just minutes from Terra Bella by the Shore.

Rooms at the Victorian Veranda Bed & Breakfast contain hardwood floors and are furnished with pieces and reproductions from the original period. Each room is individually painted and decorated – a real architectural gem from the early 1900’s.
