Beautiful grounds, great hospitality and beautiful room. (Lucky for us there was one room left). Breakfast was delish! Twyla is a lovely host. We will def stay here again if we... More

We stayed one night here, with my wife and teenage son, on our way back home via the Novastar ferry. it's on a side road, quite close to the ferry. There's unfortunately not much to Yarmouth itself, but it does have a collection of lovely period houses, a number of them B&Bs like the Guest Lovitt House. We had an... More

If it were possible to write "five plus" - this would be it. Guest Lovitt is a phenomenal place to stay. Turn in any direction, in this house, and see beauty. Our room was perfect; location of the house in Yarmouth is ideal -- central to everything. Twyla is a remarkable human being -- friendly, personable, and at the same... More

We stayed at the Guest Lovitt House the night before catching the ferry back to Portland, Maine which I would highly recommend. Returning to Yarmouth, having a nice dinner and great room with a delicious breakfast certainly starts your return on a upbeat. Twyla was great, recommend a great restaurant for dinner, made our reservations and even a requested a... More

We've stayed at lovely B and B places before but none as perfect as the Guest-Lovitt House! The rooms are pretty and immaculate (we stayed in one with a king-sized bed), there were complimentary Bath and Body Works products in the bathroom as well as very luxurious towels, and the breakfast was high-quality food, beautifully-presented. Twyla was a very gracious... More

Twyla was wonderful to us. We didn't have our rental car yet so she drove us out to the lighthouse herself and stayed while we explored. The house is immaculate and gorgeous, definitely go up to the Widow's Watch to experience the sunset. Yarmouth is a really nice town with welcoming people and some of the best food in Nova... More

The Title says it all! The Number 1 B+B in Yarmouth, if not Nova Scotia and now the Ferry is back between Yarmouth, NS and Portland, ME well, it just makes it perfect. Stay overnight before your ferry crossing and arrive at the ferry terminal in Yarmouth well rested and exceptionally well fed. This period property is immaculately maintained with... More

Thank you Twyla for going out of your way to accommodate us in your bed and breakfast. we enjoyed the uniqueness of your beautiful home. I would highly recommend your home to all. The breakfast was good and much different from the buffet breakfasts at hotels. What a welcome break!

We stayed in many B&B's on our PEI and NS trip, and this one was tops. Great house, great host and we were the only ones spending the night, so we really got to know Twyla, and her dog. She gave us a terrific recommendation for a lobster dinner at the Stanley Lobster Pound. Her breakfast was excellent. We only... More

You may enter our B&B as a traveling professional, vacationer or a honeymooner. Yet you will share an experience and a feeling common to all of our guest: A desire to remember and to return. You can enjoy a complimentary glass of Nova Scotia wine, either in the widow's watch or outside in the gazebo. We hope you will take time to enjoy all that Yarmouth has to offer! ... more   less
