My wife and I stayed at the MacKinnon-Cann Inn on Wednesday July 16th. We had travelled over on the NovaStar on Sunday July 20th and toured Nova Scotia going up the east coast stopping at Halifax then heading west to Wolfville, then down the west coast ending back in Yarmouth. The Inn has been beautifully restored and has all the... More

We took the ferry over from Portland and stayed three nights in the 1940's room. The room was clean and comfortable. The inn was quite beautiful. We were able to take a peek at the other rooms before the other guests arrived. Neil was very friendly and accommodating. We showed up without much of a plan and he was able... More

We stayed one planned night Friday July 4 and one extra night because Hurricane Arthur came through Yarmouth, and our ferry trip back to Portland on Saturday July 5 was cancelled and rescheduled for the next day. We were traveling with two other couples, and we were all hopeful that our ferry would be cancelled so we could spend another... More

We had a wonderful stay at this carefully renovated Inn in the historic district of Yarmouth. The rooms are individually decorated with lots of eye for detail. Ours was spacious and spotless and had a very comfortable bed. WIFI is free. Neil, our host, made us feel welcome right from the start and prepared a delicious breakfast. Recommended to all... More

Our short one night stay at the Mackinnon-Cann Inn earlier this month was exceptional. We had a lovely room, extremely well decorated in the "Queen Victorian" style. We were well looked after by our host Neil. It was great to have a "history tour" of the property with Michael and listen to the history of the previous owners and about... More

I'm not sure what I can add to the previous reviews. This inn is lovely in every way. We took the ferry from Portland, staying one night at the inn. Neil and Mike are gracious hosts and their love for their buildings is reflected in the meticulous renovations. The location is great - in the historic district with lovely tree... More

(a) wonderful innkeeper at the top of his game. He went the extra mile to adapt to our needs/desires. breakfast was fresh, tasty and perfectly-timed for the outgoing Ferry. (b) the rooms have pizzazz: they are cleverly decorated to evoke a particular decade. we stayed in the 1900s room, which sports a whirlpool bath. (c) optimum location in a quiet... More

Our children's first visit at the Inn was mid June 2014. Apparently, after leaving the bank card at home, they came off the boat on hope and prayer! Until funds could be received, the men were gracious enough to care for the girls with a sincere, loving generosity. The children report the Inn to be beautiful, and they've even been... More

It would be perfect if it had a king size bed. Neil was a fantastic host. The Inn is beautiful top to bottom. The breakfast was cooked to order, very tasty, fresh berries, just yummy. Definitely go back to this one.

We took the new ferry over to Yarmouth for a one day stay in Yarmouth. The ferry ride was great, the town was beautiful but by far the highlight of our trip was our stay with Neil and Michael at the MacKinnon-Cann Inn. As soon as we saw the inn we realized that this was not going to be the... More
