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!

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

It is centrally located in Pictou at a walking distance from town's main attractions, has good private parking and it's very comfortable. Wifi is strong.The owners Debby and Jamie are wonderful hosts; they made us feel valued and welcomed. Breakfast it's a... 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
