Beautifully renovated property in the heart of Yarmouth, but a quiet street. Lovely "1960's" themed room, quite large, great bathroom, high ceiling made it feel even bigger. Bed was super comfortable. Breakfast nicely presented and delicious. Neil and Michael are great hosts. Highly recommend.

The host was extremely friendly and welcoming. The Inn is unique with character, each room represented a different year, and had year specific decor (ie/ 1940's, 50's, 60s room etc). Our host showed us around to some of the rooms that weren't booked up just because we were curious. We ate at the restaurant which was delicious, they were able... More

This historic Inn has been restored with incredible attention to detail. Each room represents a distinct time period with the furnishing matching the era. The Innkeeper, Neil, makes sure everything is perfect during your stay. We needed to leave early and he had a wonderful breakfast ready for us bright and early. I can't recommend it more highly.

Thank you for your review. Many of our guests really enjoy the different decades - that take them back in time of their childhood or what it may have been like before they were born. Thank you for staying with us and we hope your travels bring you back this way to Yarmouth and the MacKinnon Cann Inn. More

You made us feel right at home and took excellent care of us. This is a close walk to downtown, the ferry, Rudder's, and the farmer's market. I cannot think of a better place to celebrate the Supreme Court decisions. You have given us great memories!

The men who own the Inn (and a number of other historic district houses) have done an imaginative, creative restoration/adaptation of this late 19th century double house. It is now a single dwelling with a number of themed rooms (all with ensuite baths) comfortably and whimsically furnished. My room and large bathroom was quiet and the bed was excellent. It... More

Just got back from a WONDERFUL evening of wining and dining. Neil, our host, even bought our favorite wine to drink and was an EXCELLENT host all around. Amazing atmosphere as well. Felt like in a movie from the 1920s Era Cannot wait to come back and even stay the night :)
