We always pick MacKinnon-Cann Inn when visiting or working in Yarmouth, NS. We stayed two nights during the NS Music Week in a comfortable 1920's style room with heated bathroom floor..... my favourite thing. The hosts were very flexible for breakfast times for the musicians and festival goers. We enjoyed sleeping a little late. Breakfast started with yogurt and wonderful... More

Our hosts Neil and Michael made our weekend in Yarmouth truly special. Neil welcomed us warmly and he was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about history of the town. The B & B is truly lovely and yesteryear revisited but with all the conveniences including a heated bathroom floor. Rooms were tastefully decorated, spotless, amazingly comfortable bed, beautiful linens, good shower... More

The room was nice. It would have been better if you didn't have to walk across a hallway to the bathroom. The weather was unseasonably warm the week we were in Nova Scotia and it was too warm to sleep comfortably. The small window fan was very noisy and was incapable of making the room comfortable. The overhead fan made... More

Dear Robert.... Thank you for your comments about your lodging experience. It has been very unseasonal weather in Eastern Canada this year, matter of fact across the country. Being located three blocks from the Ocean and on the Gulf Stream - Yarmouth has not needed AC - but since climate is changing, that may have to change to make the... More

This place is the best! We were greeted by the owner-manager who made us feel like celebrity upon arrival; he carried our bags, showed us around, and made us feel comfortable and at home. Dinner was a fabulous 3 course fixed price by Chef Michael in a comfortably appointed late Victorian suite of dining rooms. Lovely room, great night's sleep... More

Had a wonderful stay at this beautiful historic inn. The owners/hosts are so helpful and accommodating. Only regret is that we didn't make our reservation for the gourmet dinner before it was sold out....we won't make that mistake next time. We will definitely be back!

Early August had - as non B&B guests - dinner which was so good. So after sailing to Lunenburg I sailed back here to have another wonderful meal. Great fish soup, delicious chicken ballotine, desert with fresh strawberries. You can bring your own wine, but no need, they serve a few nice NS (and other) wines. All at more then... More
