Trip advisor comments:

We decided to stay at the Hearthstone Inn in Dartmouth and we were very glad we did,” said one guest. “When we went into the Hearthstone we were so impressed with how nicely decorated it was inside from beautiful antiques, glass chandeliers...it resembled more like a boutique-style hotel than a typical chain hotel.”

“The staff were friendly and helpful, and because it was Mothers' Day they were giving a little gift as well as a parting gift,” said a reviewer. “These little things made our stay a little bit more memorable. The food in the pub was reasonably priced and delicious.”

Whether you have spent the day exploring the Halifax area or are returning to your home base after a day trip to the charming South Shore or a wine tour in the Annapolis Valley, call it a night at the Hearthstone Inn. 

Grahams Grove, located across the street, offers free Dragon boat rides on Friday evenings throughout the summer months; no experience necessary.


“We have arrived at the destination that we want for the customer experience but we will continue to change decor in each room to have a different concept to it. We have guests staying with us from all over the world and they just love our quaint feel that is so different from the cookie-cutter that you get in the larger branded hotels.” -- Mike Melenchuk, owner of Hearthstone Hospitality.
