We toured nova scotia for a week, and made a stop in pictou on our way to cape breton island. The Willow House inn was centrally situated. It had one of the most spacious rooms we had during our stay on Nova Scotia, an enormous and good bed and the breakfast (eggs benedict and homemade blueberry-lime muffins) was amazing. The... More

The Inn is within walking distance of the village where one can find several dining choices and two museums and a picturesque waterfront. The highlight of our stay was an outstanding breakfast and visiting with other guests. Breakfast was delicious and served with... More

This B&B is located in an old historic house in Pictou that could be quite lovely. It is in desperate need of renovation to bring it back to its former glory and to make a comfortable experience for guests. The hosts are warm and welcoming but the rooms need a complete overhaul. As it is, although not expensive, this B&B... More

We had a wonderful visit at Willow House. Debby and Jamie are welcoming hosts. Jamie gave us a little intro and a list of restaurants for dinner when we checked in. The inn is spotless with large, comfortable suites. Our breakfast was delicious and included fresh fruit and homemade jams and cinnamon rolls!

I stayed here with my dog Cody while traveling through Nova Scotia. This is a basic B & B as far rooms are concerned but the friendly hosts and yummy breakfast more than make up for it. Prices are VERY reasonable and everything is neat and clean. I met some interesting people while there and would definitely stay here again.

We stayed a single night having come from Charlottetown and looking forward to visiting the Hector Quay. Hosts are wonderful, very helpful and knowledgeable about the town and area. The building is old and it shows. Breakfast was excellent.

The Willow House Inn is a beautiful historic house, with incredibly friendly & fun hosts. The classic 2 bedroom suite was ideal for my friends and me, and we were served an extraordinary breakfast in the morning; toast with scrambled eggs, avocado and salmon (!!!), home made blueberry muffins and incredible home made jams! They even catered for gluten intolerance.... More
