It was absolutely amazing !!!. I am from Ireland and the down-home, traditional cooking (with a twist!) coupled with friendly banter around the breakfast table was very welcoming! My wife is obsessed with cleanliness and was suitably impressed !!! The bed was ultra-soft, clean and comfortable. The hosts couldn't be more friendly and welcoming. We will surely return.Top-notch location with... More

We stayed in Jacob's Dory - one of the self-contained apartments that are slightly away from the main house. It had really good furniture but the bathroom and kitchen were in serious need of an update. Breakfast time was dictated and communal - more to suit the needs of the hosts than the guests. Food was below average but presented... More

Gailliebird, Owner at Evening Sail B&B, responded to this review

For an innkeeper, there is nothing more devastating than an unhappy guest….unless, of course, it is hearing about it for the first time in an international forum! As we had no hints of your disappointment until your abrupt departure, there was little left for us to do but give you an immediate refund. We would certainly have done everything in... More

Our hosts Michelle and Gail, daughter and mother, were fantastic..warm, friendly and great to converse with. They take much pride in their B & B and personal service. The beds are comfy, the rooms cheerful and the breakfast is the best you've ever had! They even provide baggies to take extra goodies with you. Get a map at the Visitors... More

We were looking for a place to stay near the PEI ferry after driving from the Halifax airport. This place was ideal. Just a 5-6 minute drive from the ferry. The room (Seashell) was very nice, a tree house type of feel, and the sheets and bed were the softest I think I have ever experienced. We had to leave... More

We had some difficulty locating this B & B once in Pictou, crazy signs or not enough! There was a lobster festival going on during the time of our stay and it was "small-town fun!" Our room was somewhat small, but clean and cozy. Abundant breakfast with sandwich bags to take a snack for later - great!

We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely Bed and Breakfast. The hosts are friendly and welcoming, informative, organized and generous. Fresh cookies upon our arrival and hot cider and cookies before bed! A wonderful selection of books and magazines to read. The most adorable little dogs...that only make an appearance if requested. The breakfast was TOTALLY AWESOME...great coffee too.... More

The beds live up to the B&Bs claim: the best! The mattress was so good that I almost believed I was home in my own bed. The premises are clean; the house is cozy; the owners are friendly; the breakfast was yummy. Plus it's a good value.

My friend and I stayed at this lovely B&B. We each had a great room and enjoyed a good night's sleep. The mother-daughter hosts are delightful and funny. The breakfast was fabulous right down to the little candy pumpkin garnish on each plate of pancakes. Never have I had such good oatmeal either. We each got a freshly baked muffin... More

We recently spent one night in the Sandpiper Room at the Evening Sail B&B in Pictou. Our room had a very comfortable queen bed with plenty of space for luggage and relaxing, a small tv with cable, and a balcony overlooking the backyard of the B&B. Although the bathroom was very small (small shower, sink, and toilet), it was fine... More
