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

The property is lovely, we enjoyed a bottle of wine while sitting on the gorgeous front veranda. We had diner at the Black Rock Bistro,... More

Although we first thought it a tad pricey for this part of NS, we discovered why. This is a beautiful, well maintained home. We stayed in the Gillespie (?) room, which was on the top floor and had a large bathroom with a great tub and separate shower. The room itself was spacious. The bed was comfortable and the linens...

The Inn had the feel of a grand southern place. It has great curb appeal, with a wrap around porch and beautiful garden. Two friendly dogs greeted us upon our arrival and the staff gave us a brief tour. We stayed in the Huntely Room and it was a tasteful room with a private bathroom. It was very clean and... More

This was my third stay at the Gillespie House and first rate every time. It is a lovely place to stay. Immaculate, attention to detail, superb breakfast, access to various places on the property including the living room, study, garden and large veranda - all offering a nice little corner to relax. Hosts are very hospitable and welcoming. Would pick... More

Everything about Gillespie is 5 star, from its stunning grounds, perfect location and beautiful rooms to the welcoming hosts, tasty breakfasts and overall great service. Our teen daughter got sick during our trip, and the host on duty made her toast and tea at 8pm and made herself available later in the evening if we needed anything else. This extra... More

We stayed at Gillespie House Inn in June 2014 and this was one of our favourite stays during our 6 week trip of the Maritimes. The home and grounds are truly a picture, and Lori and David, our hosts, were very welcoming, attentive and helpful. We had a suite at the back of the house which gave us a seperate... More

We stayed at eleven B&Bs on our trip around Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, and this is the one we thought was most beautiful! It's an elegant house, with large porches full of potted plants and comfortable seating, and it's located on a gorgeous property --- rolling green lawn, big trees, and a white-spired church at the back.
