My cousin and I recently stayed at the Willow House Inn. We knew we had made the right choice as soon as we walked through the front door. Jamie was there to greet us, show us to our room, and answer any questions. He even helped us up the stairs with our very heavy suitcases. The breakfasts, made by the... More

The owners were very nice and helpful but the B&B was just not good. The bedding did not feel clean. old pillows, bathroom very small and very dated. On a busy street. Overall the place needs a lot of updating.

My husband and stayed one night whilst travelling to Prince Edward Island. The house is very old and rooms tastefully decorated to match. We stayed in a room with two queen brass beds which were very comfortable. The bathroom had an old cast iron bath, far too deep for us oldies to consider climbing in - we may have got... More

Jamie and Debbie are so easy to talk to and so accomodating. Breakfasts were just beautiful and delicious. Our room had a king bed and ensuite and it was so comfortable and cozy. Just a lovely home. We really enjoyed our time in Pictou and are so glad we stayed here. Thank you Jamie and Debbie!

Needed a spot to stay in the Pictou/New Glasgow area and was overwhelmed by this gem of an inn. The beauty of this historic building was only surpassed by the generous, thoughtful and accommodating hosts. While maintaining the integrity of the heritage building, Debby and Jamie offer elegantly updated rooms and social spaces and a wealth of knowledge of the... More

My partner and I booked online the previous night with no issues. Check in is at 3pm although we arrived quiet early, around 11am, and decided to see if there was a chance of early check in. We were greeted warmly by the hosts and were checked into our room straight away. The room was decorated in a tasteful Victorian... More

Our family - 7 adults and three young teens - were in Pictou last evening to see our son in "The Music Man" at the Decoste Centre, and we made a return visit to the Willow House Inn, using four of their five rooms/suites. As before, Jamie and Debby went out of their way to make us comfortable. Before we... More

We stayed here last night. We were in the area for a sporting event. It's an older building, but well maintained. We had a suit with two berooms with a bathroom. Very clean. Great breakfast of homemade cinnamon rolls, homemade jams and eggs Benedict. Had a great time chatting with Jamie and Deb. They were so friendly and made us... More

Having to uproot myself and my dogs suddenly and travel back to Pictou for a family emergency in the middle of January, I was happy to find a place close to my family that would accept the dogs. Jamie and Debby were very welcoming, especially of my younger dog who tended to roam the house looking for adventure and back... More

We stayed here for one night in October 2014 and loved it. Our room (on the second floor) was large and comfortable. The bathroom was clean and the bed soft. The owners were very kind and accommodating. I would stay here again!
