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!

The building is very historic and there is lots of love in the house. The owners are giving a lot of attention to detail and the breakfast is excellent. You will be suprised. Also they are very helpful and are giving a lot of advice for things to see in the area.

This historic house was one of the highlights of our trip to Nova Scotia. Jamie and Deb are a source of information as to where to go and what to see, not just in their town but all of Nova Scotia. Their location is walking distance to the towns attractions and it has private parking. The breakfast was unbelievable!! We... More

We arrived at the door under a bolt of lightning to be warmly met by Jamie who promptly took us to our room and gave us a guided tour. We were extremely impressed with our King room, it was spacious light and really comfortable. The atmosphere from the minute we arrived to the minute we left was as welcoming as... More

Hosts were very nice, but the room with one queen bed and bath was terrible. Stained and yellowed wallpaper, uncomfortable mattress, worn sheets with not very high thread count, and the bedspread was worn as well, and pilled. Pillows were flat and also needed badly to be replaced. The bathroom had the lino lifting up one side of the toilet.... More

Willow House is a beautiful old house, in the heart of Pictou. Great location; easy to find, great paths along the water for a stroll and close to tons of restaurants within walking distance. The Inn's host Jamie is very pleasant, has an amazing memory for the name of his guests and they serve a very yummy breakfast! The room... More

Other reviews are correct. The place was clean, the hosts were warm, the food was great. However, it badly needed renovation before I will reconsider. The bathroom faced the main road and it was quite easy to look out (and in). It was also quite small and I was barely able to sit down next to the shower cube (use... More

This is a heritage property in downtown, and the owners are really sweet and friendly. The furniture is made up of lovely antique pieces, however the inn really needs a renovation. The wallpaper is peeling off of the walls, there were cracks in the plaster ceiling, stains on the floor, and everything was dark and in need of care. The... More

We arrived unannounced & Jamie immediately made us feel at home in this lovely old B&B. Yes, there are stairs but our room was clean and comfortable. Full breakfast (delicious scones) around a large table was a friendly affair with other guests. It was easy to walk to the major sites along the waterfront and Jamie was a good source... More
