Welcome to The Regent

Winner of the 2008 & 2009
Amherst & Area Chamber of Commerce's Excellence Award:

Excellence in Customer Service

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.

With The Regent, 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.

"The Regent is an ideal venue for weddings or romantic weekends. Golf at the highly rated Amherst Golf Club, take a leisurely bicycle or motorcycle tour to the Northumberland beaches, visit some of the museums, enjoy our downtown shops and restaurants (a five-minute walk), or begin one of the day trips we are pleased to suggest. Or simply sit on our sunny deck and read a good book!"
