My two children and I stayed at Gillespie House and were thoroughly charmed by the beautiful rooms, luxurious beds and bathrooms, idyllic gardens, delicious breakfasts and warm welcome by everyone here. The only downside to Gillespie House is leaving it. We will return to Nova Scotia just for the pleasure of coming back to the nicest bed and breakfast I've... More

What wonderful Hosts. I cannot say enough. Walk to town and shops. Stayed in room fronting on house 2nd floor. BEST BED IN ALL OF NOVA SCOTIA. It was so quiet and peaceful. I enjoyed the old fashion tub. The rooms are clean and updated. Such a well kept property. The hosts talk with you but give you privacy too.... More

Thank you so much to all the staff. This was very pleasant, the food was terrific. The room was a bit dirty but we told the front counter and they quickly got us a new room. Highly recommended to anybody passing through.

After waiting a year to post this review I am thinking this guest has made a mistake and sent the review to the wrong place. After checking our records for August last year I cannot find anyone from this guest's hometown registered as a guest at our establishment. In the event that he really was a guest here, I can...

Stayed here two nights and got in late the first night. Dave and Lori were very accommodating and so nice to talk to. They also helped pack us a quick breakfast to-go as we needed to leave early morning on a kayak tour. Enjoyed the room, privacy and interactions with the other guests. It felt like you were staying with... More

Thank you so much David and Lori for a great stay at your beautiful inn. All the extra details in the room were so appreciated; you have thought of everything that a travelling guest might need. Our room was very large and comfortable, the bathroom was incredibly spacious and the claw foot tub so inviting. Our guest room and bathroom... More

What a grand bed and breakfast! The hosts and their fur-kids, Abby and Piper, are a delight and so friendly. The attention to detail in this home is phenomenal. There are plenty of areas to sit and relax in and outside the bed and breakfast. We felt so comfortable and relaxed here. The landscaping around this home is beautiful too.... More

We spent two nights in September at the Gillespie House Inn, a lovely older home in Parrsboro and very well kept. Hosts David and Laura paid great attention to detail. Our bedroom was good sized with comfortable furniture and we slept well. Breakfast menu included good selections with delightful presentation. The comfortable dining room offered a good atmosphere for visiting... More

We stayed at The Gillespie House Inn while exploring the Bay of Fundy, Cape d'Or and Advocate Harbour. The little town of Parrsboro can be seen in an hour, but the surrounding coastline is well worth a visit. The Inn is a lovely old home run by a couple who don't hover. The beds are very comfortable indeed, and the... More

The overall stay was good. We didn't know that they had a dog until he came between me and the table with my glass of red wine which went flying. Lori was very apologetic and offered another glass of wine. However, David mentioned that they didn't have any. Nice to see however that the next day when we went to... More

I guess there are always two points of view to any situation. First, the fact that we have resident dogs is on our website and all our print material. Usually the dogs do not go into the study or living room that the guests use but sometimes it happens. Abby (our Golden Retriever) was happy to see someone in the... More
