The owners are very welcoming. The room we were given was a bit shabby, but very clean. The breakfast was very good and we felt comfortable taking our time getting to know other guests and having more good coffee. Make sure if you go to Pictou, you eat a meal at Sharon's Cafe. It is where the locals eat and... More

Charming bed and breakfast in great location in downtown Pictou. Very short distance from where we had just gotten off of the ferry from Prince Edward Island. Jamie and Debbie couldn't have been better hosts, very down to earth, friendly and hospitable. And what a breakfast they served! It was absolutely delicious. The morning we were there, Jamie asked if... More

My wife and I stayed for one night at the Willow House Inn, What can I say we loved everything about it - our room, location, breakfast but most of all the Innkeepers. I especially enjoyed my evening chat with Jamie on the porch. I could have done that again. After a week we could have solved all the world's... More

Loved this B and B; owners couldn't have been more welcoming or knowledgeable. Room was lovely with private bath and two brass beds. Breakfast was a treat, with a home cooked main course and a baked specialty (Oat cakes on our visit). Guest lingered over breakfast and conversation was lively.

Whilst we were staying, there was a large family gathering for a wedding and, at first, we thought that there would be lots of disturbance but this was not the case and we were made to feel really welcome. The inn is a bit 'shabby' but very comfortable and the breakfast is excellent. It is located within easy walking distance... More

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.
