My husband and I stayed at the Inn March 7 and 8, 2014. We were in Yarmouth to visit our daughter "Sharon" and her boyfriend Mark. Not expecting to find anything special in the accommodations department we were pleasantly surprised to find the MacKinnon-Cann Inn!! It is a spectacularly restored home in the centre of town. The hosts Neil and... More

Let me start by saying: Until I stayed here, I had many reservations and concerns about staying at a Bed & Breakfast, anywhere. Neil and Michael were the most gracious and loving hosts one could ever hope for. They would stop the world from spinning if you requested it. They have a very neat room number/design system. Every room is... More

The MacKinnon-Cann Inn experience starts out when you make your reservation, and the person on the other end of the phone is friendly and welcoming. Then you get there, and the curb appeal is sweet! Lovely old house, beautifully maintained. Even a handy unloading area in front of the door, so you aren't dragging luggage from the parking lot. The... More

We needed to find an inn open on the Christmas holidays, and were turned down by two or three bed and breakfasts. Our great fortune was that the MacKinnon-Cann Inn was probably the best place we could have stayed. The owners have restored four magnificent mansions in the centre of the city, dating from Yarmouth's era of prosperity in the... More

We have stayed in several highly-rated B&Bs throughout Nova Scotia over the past 10 days and found the Mackinnon-Cann Inn to be one of our absolute favourites! The room was tastefully, classically decorated and the bed was extremely comfortable and with quality linens. The hosts were extremely pleasant and provided a tasty breakfast. We will recommend this B&B to others... More

Went to Yarmouth to work but this place made it (almost) feel like a holiday. Great staff, went over and above in service and making life easier for me. Neil was a blast and I will definitely be back if I head out Yarmouth way again anytime soon! Lynn was awesome too, again, above and beyond, thanks guys!

This is a true jewel of a place to stay. Every complement you read is 100% spot on so I’m not sure what more I could add. The décor is nice and the food is excellent but what make this a truly wonderful experience are the owners and staff. They truly make you feel welcome to be in their home... More

It was our good fortune to stay at this Inn in Yarmouth Nova Scotia. Innkeeper Neil Hisgen and partner Michael Taveras were as cordial and welcoming as family. Our accomodations were wonderful - this is a brand new elegant old Inn that is 100% re-habbed right down to the radiant heat in the bathroom! Our room was elegant Victorian yet... More

We recently had a trip around the South Shore of N.S. and stayed at MacKinnon-Cann Inn in Yarmouth. It is an old home that was bought and restored by two gentlemen from the U.S. They did a marvelous job of making this property into an Inn and have restored other houses in the neighbourhood. The room we had was nicely... More

This restaurant is one of the best surprises we have encounter. The house it self is an beautiful 19th century mansion which has been restored and designed in a very elegant way.
