Simply Beautiful! We stayed in the Gillespi Room. It was beautiful and very spacious. The bed and bed linens were heaven to sleep in. The bathroom had an old claw foot tub and seperate shower. 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 Gillespie house for the weekend and did their "adventure and tastes of NS package". This made for a great weekend. The house is beautiful and the grounds are lovely. The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable about local events. Breakfast was well prepared and had lots of variety. We would recommend this B&B to anyone staying in... 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. We... More

A beautiful inn and property. We were having trouble finding something nice in this part of Nova Scotia, so we asked for a recommendation from another innkeeper. I'll do that again! Our room, at the front of the house, was extremely inviting and comfortable. The hosts we're engaging company and the other guests so interesting that we all stayed longer... More

The Inn, set back from the road on a large property, was a surprise. [When you pick your accommodations from the Internet, you can never be sure]. From the friendly greeting by the two friendly resident dogs to the well-appointed room to the extremely knowledgeable hosts, this stop on our journey turned out to be restorative (after a long drive),...
