We worked with Neil to set up a 3 night/ 4 day stay for 9 ladies from various parts of the US who came together to learn a little about Nova Scotia and a lot about painting. Upon their arrival they were served a wonderful tea and later that day a fabulous 5 course dinner. Everyone raved about the breakfasts,... More

If for not other reason than to experience the exquisite charm of the MacKinnon-Cann Inn, Yarmouth should be a stopping point on your places to visit in Nova Scotia. The Inn 2 blocks off the main street and has been beautifully restored by owners Michael Tavares and his partner Neil Hisgen, who not only runs the Inn but also the... More

Each room in this beautifully renovated historic building has a theme. Ours was from I Love Lucy, complete with comfortable twin beds and 1950s furnishings. Our bathroom was large and had great lighting. Good wifi. Air conditioning not needed (the only minor issue was that our window fan had a squeak). Neil and Michael have put a lot of effort... More

Neil and Michael are excellent hosts in this B and B where each room is decorated in a different decade. My husband and I stayed in the 60's room---beaded curtain, orange floor lamp, canvases of stretched fabric. It was awesome! And the added benefit---an excellent restaurant within the B and B. Chef Michael put on a three course dinner that... More

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!
