I stayed here with my dog Cody while traveling through Nova Scotia. This is a basic B & B as far rooms are concerned but the friendly hosts and yummy breakfast more than make up for it. Prices are VERY reasonable and everything is neat and clean. I met some interesting people while there and would definitely stay here again.

We stayed a single night having come from Charlottetown and looking forward to visiting the Hector Quay. Hosts are wonderful, very helpful and knowledgeable about the town and area. The building is old and it shows. Breakfast was excellent.

The Willow House Inn is a beautiful historic house, with incredibly friendly & fun hosts. The classic 2 bedroom suite was ideal for my friends and me, and we were served an extraordinary breakfast in the morning; toast with scrambled eggs, avocado and salmon (!!!), home made blueberry muffins and incredible home made jams! They even catered for gluten intolerance.... More

If you are staying in Pictou, awaiting the ferry to Prince Edward Island, you may want to spend a night at the Willow House Inn. It's got a lot of charm and the owners, Debby and Jamie, are wonderful hosts who put together a lovely breakfast before you depart for PEI. They are also very helpful with information about local...

We stayed here for one night on our Nova Scotia trip. The house does not look much from the outside but this as we found out is because of the age of the house. The hosts Jamie and Debbie were lovely and our rooms were both lovely. This is a charming house and would highly recommend. The breakfast was lovely... More

Don't be fooled by the exterior appearance of the building. Inside it is full of delights, which is matched by the owners Jamie and Debbie. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they have a wealth of local knowledge and advice on how to make the most of your stay. Finally, the breakfast is a feast to behold, this... More

Debbie and Jamie were fabulous hosts, very welcoming...even invited me to have an evening drink and chat in the livingroom which was lovely. Debbie took a few minutes to suggest what to see and do and where to eat. They both make a point of remembering all their guests' names and introducing everyone at breakfast. They served peach-stuffed french toast,... More

Historic home was very charming. The hosts, Debby and Jamie, went above and beyond to provide a comfortable stay, not to mention a phenomenal breakfast to start each of our 5 mornings there. It is in a great location with harbor views and an easy walk to shops and restaurants downtown.
