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

We enjoyed 2 comfortable nights with friendly hosts at the Willow House Inn. Our king bed room on the second floor was spacious and quiet. The breakfasts were tasty and complete. We enjoyed the company of other travellers. Would definitely recommend Willow House for value and comfort.

Lost count of how often we have retreated to the charming comfort of Debbie & Jamie's abode . We travel to Pictou for business , however find a welcome, warm cherry embrace at the WILLOW HOUSE INN. Of particular note, whether booked to capacity or in the off season , these local folks have "time" for all , chatting about... More

We reserved this B&B last minute while on the 8pm ferry from PEI to NS. To secure a room (with less than 2h arrival time) we had to leave our credit card details, which we did. The B&B was easy to find and nearby the ferry, which was nice for the late arrival. Unfortunately, our prepaid reserve put us up... More

The couple who own this B & B welcome you into their home as though you were old friends. For the first time, I even went downstairs after dinner to enjoy the homey atmosphere with other guests and looked forward to seeing them at breakfast. We had a suite of 2 rooms and our own bathroom on the 3rd floor... More

We stayed at the Willow House Inn the night before taking the ferry to Prince Edward Island. It was very convenient to catch the first morning ferry from there, and we had plenty of time to enjoy the delicious breakfast before we left. The hosts were very helpful, and the food was excellent. Although the house was clean and comfortable,... More

We spent two nights at Willow House Inn in July and loved it and the town of Pictou. Don't hurry to or from the ferry but stay at Willow House to enjoy the hospitality of Debby and Jamie, their delicious breakfast and friendly conversation and advice. We enjoyed sitting on their porch in the evening speaking and drinking a complimentary... More

We first came across the Willow House Inn by accident, and frankly it was the best accident to have happened to us. We have now stayed there 5 times over the past 2 years and NEVER had reason to be unhappy with the service, accommodation or the breakfasts. Ahh breakfast, the most important meal of the day is just that... More

We rent a room at the Willow House in Pictou and we had only good things to say about our night. Our host Jamie greet us and after noticing how desperate we where for a cold drink after a hot day on the motorcycle offer us two cold beers, we where very gratefull.
