We stayed in 2 different rooms at the beggining and end of our tour around Nova Scotia. The rooms were clean and very comfortable (especially after a long drive up from NYC). The breakfast was amazing, we opted for the pancakes on both our stays. This place was easy to find and they even atayed up late as we forgot... More

We spent three nights at this B&B and enjoyed every minute. The central location allowed us to see Halifax, Lunenburg, Peggy's Cove, and the Bay of Fundy while having a home base. Our hosts Ann and Larry were very welcoming and gave us great suggestions on what to see. The room was well appointed with a large ensuite bathroom. Breakfast... More

We spent a night here over the summer. A truly fantastic stay. Breakfast is great, and the owners can tell you everything you need to know about the area. You can tell that they put their heart and soul into creating the best possible experience for their guests. The rooms are clean and adorable.

We had a great room ( Fergus Suite), super bathroom and comfortable bed and especially good to have a sofa as well as an easy chair. Everything was as you would expect it to be for a first class B & B. Breakfast offered continental / cooked options. The continental included a selection of scones, fruit, Dutch apple cake, toast,...

We enjoyed our stay so much the first time that we returned the following weekend when our travels brought us back to Truro. Larry & Ann are friendly, welcoming, helpful hosts! We thoroughly enjoyed conversations with them & the other guests. We highly recommend staying here. We echo the comments of other reviews to say the breakfast is exceptional &... More

Ann and Larry are great hosts and provide a very inviting and comfortable stay. We so wish we could have stayed longer. The breakfast was exceptional. Our room was lovely as well as impeccably clean. Do plan on staying here if you are in the area.

This place is beautiful and the hosts are great. We really enjoyed chatting with them and other guests over a lovely breakfast. Wish I had gone for the cooked one. The Mississauga room is comfortable though not large. There's a gorgeous living room downstairs to relax and read in. We had trouble finding it as Google told us to turn... More

Ann and Larry were fantastic hosts! Ann gave us a handful of restaurant suggestions when we first arrived and Larry provided us with lots of helpful tips and pointers for our road trip plan. The house was also very well located, close to highway, less than 10min drive to downtown Truro and Victoria Park, 15 min drive from the riverside... More

Tulips and Thistle was one of the best B and Bs in which we have ever stayed. Truro is not exactly a tourist mecca but it is well situated as a touring way-point and fairly close to Halifax. That said, this B and B should be a tourist mecca in itself! The owners and operators are wonderful and the home... More
