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.

Owners very friendly and accommodating. Rooms clean and roomy enough. Breakfast was delicious served with hot homemade biscuits and jam. Very reasonably priced. Not much to do in Pictou but a good stop for coming or going on the ferry

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
