This family ran in is in an a large old house with antique furnishings ran by the kindest hosts. Breakfast was fantastic with homemade muffins, and eggs with smoked salmon. Made new friends here. Very reasonably priced for a family needing 2 rooms together.

We stayed here for one night before catching the ferry to PEI. We booked one of the two bedroom suites, which turned out to be 2 bedrooms and a private bath in what would have been the attics of the house. If you have a lot of luggage, book one of the other rooms, as these require two staircases to... More

We stayed at the Willow Inn on our way to Cape Breton Island from Halifax. Lovely little inn! The hosts are friendly and the breakfast was outstanding -- eggs on French bread with smoked salmon, homemade biscuits, and homemade preserves. The hosts also gave us several great suggestions for places to stop along the way.

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!
