The MacKinnon-Cann is one of the highlights of our entire trip around Atlantic Canada. I would go back to Yarmouth again just to stay here again, and stay over a weekend so we could sample Chef Michael's cuisine. We saw more of Neil than of Michael during this stay, and he was always ready with a suggestion for somewhere to... More

Due to another B & B in Yarmouth being sold after we booked a stay there, we were directed to the MacKinnon-Cann Inn. Right from the start, Neil was delightful to speak with on the phone and then in person. The Inn is beautifully restored. Michael, Neil's partner has a tremendous gift that he has put to good use in... More

The innkeeper and co-owner, Neal, and his co-owner, Michael, were the best hosts that any guest could ask for. The inn was beautiful and meticulously maintained and decorated. It was great to be seated for breakfast and have both owners talk to us about their experiences in creating this beautiful inn. They kept us laughing and made us very comfortable.... More

They looked after every need for us and the linens in the room were AMAZING. This is THE PLACE to stay in Yarmouth. Gorgeous restored manor house, quick walk to the harbour and a great... More

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
