My husband and I just completed a six week trip through Nova Scotia and PEI. We stayed at 1 hotel, 8 B & B's, 4 Inns and 1 cottage. Our stay at Ann and Larry's was one of our best experiences of our trip, although the entire trip was beyond amazing! We loved the room - we rented the Master... More

My partner and I were looking for a comfortable B and B in Truro while we attended a friend's wedding. From the moment we entered Ann and Larry's lovely home, we knew we were in good hands. Every aspect of our stay exceeded expectation! From the extremely comfortable room to the breakfast which was to die for! We would visit... More

We stopped here for one night on our way to Halifax (leaving out of the airport the next morning). The innkeepers are lovely friendly people. Their house is open, spacious and inviting. The room we stayed in (master suite) was well-appointed and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. We'd go back in a heartbeat.

A great bed and breakfast. Beautifully appointed and spacious. Our hosts, Anne and Larry, we're very gracious and helpful. Their knowledge of the Truro, NS area was very helpful. We definitely enjoyed our breakfasts, they were large and very tasty. Take a chance and order the chefs choice. This is definitely a B and B we would be happy to... More

The Tulip and Thistle, a nod to the owners respective heritages, is a modern spacious home on a nice property a bit outside Truro. The owners, Anne and Larry, are very welcoming hosts that work hard at making their guests feel comfortable. They had maps and dining recommendations ready for us and made sure that we knew we could enjoy... More

Anne and Larry made us feel very welcome in their beautiful home, set in a lovely garden and quiet neighbourhood. They offer four different rooms from the luxurious Master Suite, through the spacious Fergus Suite, the smaller Mississauga Room with ensuite (shower), and the Cornelia Room, with bathroom-down-the-hall. Prices vary accordingly. The bed in the Fergus was very comfortable, with... More

We stayed one night in the Master Suite on our way to Cape Breton for a week. It was spotlessly clean and very quiet. Ann and Larry were warm and welcoming, the breakfast was beyond delicious and the other guests--a single mom with two charming children--were delightful. We could have sat at the breakfast table all day sharing hiking stories.... More

Extremely fine property. Perfectly adorned with decor and layout. Room was quite comfortable and Ann and Larry are owners that I would always wish would greet me and share their home in any B&B I should frequent in the future. Gorgeous patio and sitting areas. Close to quite nice restaurants and the highway.

Larry and Ann are excellent hosts, they were very helpful in giving us suggestions on where to go for supper and some idea's on area's to check out on our travels. We fully... More

Three friends and I arrived at the Tulip and Thistle B and B for our second night in the Maritimes. We were on our way to P.E.I. after spending most of the day in Halifax. Excellent choice! Ann and Larry were so accommodating. Gave us choices for breakfast menu and time. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. So enjoyed the other... More
