Our last night in Nova Scotia I needed to stay close to the waterfront since my Nova Star Ferry leaft early in the morning.

My wife and I took advantage of the Mothers' Day event dinner. It was just excellent. I had the Kale soup appetizer and it was fabulous. We both had steak for the main course with one rare and the other medium, and they really were as specified. Vegetables were cooked to perfection. The desert with a bit of cayenne was... More

I was in Yarmouth for work and was told to try the MacKinnon-Cann Inn, and am quite happy I did. The Innkeeper puts in a lot of effort to ensure you have a good stay, and is accommodating to your schedule/requirements. Each room has a different theme (by decades), which is a unique aspect of staying there.

This visit we enjoyed a glass of wine and a couple of appetizers as a late and light supper. The food is very good. As always Michael and Neil are charming hosts This is the best place to stay...

Simply perfection from the time you walk in the front door. Beautiful surroundings abound and Neil, Michael and Chef Michael are the perfect hosts! Diner was done to perfection and all local ingredients which made it that much more special. The 1910 room where we stayed is fantastic with a huge spa like bathroom.

I wandered around for a couple hours admiring the work done to save this building from demolition! Each bedroom had a different decor theme - we stayed in the 1950s suite. Neil was a great host and very personable; one of the best B&Bs we have stayed in! A tad pricey but well worth it! VERY close to ferry! VERY... More

My wife and I stayed three nights in the 1910 Room at the beautiful Victorian home in September on an anniversary trip. The home has been lovingly restored by the Innkeepers/Owners, Neil and Michael. Our room was large and comfortable with a lovely décor befitting of the 1910 era. We were made to feel welcome and comfortable. The breakfasts were... More

Neil is a fantastic host, start to finish. He was helpful in arranging dinner reservations for us and providing directions and suggestions of activities. The room was beautiful and so comfortable. I especially appreciated the Jacuzzi tub after my 5 mile hike in the National Park. Breakfast, too was delightful. I would recommend The MacKinnon-Cann Inn to anyone visiting Yarmouth.

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.
