Neil is a great host, and the property is quite beautiful. Incredible attention to detail everwhere, with no expense spared in the fit and finish. We loved it and will definitely be back! Next time we will have dinner on the property.

My husband and I stayed here for one night at the end of August. We'd stayed at three other inns on our trip, and this was far and away the highlight. Neil was delightful and both he and Michael were extremely friendly and welcoming. Many B&Bs are simply that - a bed with breakfast - but this felt like we... More

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

This B&B was pure luxury!! Beautiful rooms and excellent hosts, Neil and Michael. They also do fine dining nights at the Inn with awesome menus. 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

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
