We arrived fairly late from the CAT boat from Portland Maine to Yarmouth NS (highly recommend!) ..we were welcomed and checked in quickly and had been upgraded ...thank you..to an even nicer, very comfortable and quiet room. A recommendation for dinner was made, very close and just what we needed. We had a nice comfortable sleep and shower was great.... More

Was looking for a place to stay near the ferry terminal in Yarmouth. The Guest-Lovett House came up in a few different searches and I am so glad that it did. From my 1st phone call w/Twyla to our arrival a few weeks later, the experience was truly exceptional. The inn is very comfortable, breakfast was terrific and Twyla is... More

Not sure why I'm writing this review, except to cast my vote with the others. This B & B is exceptional, and their attention to detail knows no limit. The house is immaculate, the food is great and the hospitality second to none. At breakfast a family phoned from the ferry to ask if they'd left their iPad in their... More

We stayed here the past two nights while on our road trip around Nova Scotia. We found Lovitt House because the B&B at which we had booked (the Fodors recommended one in town) closed in March, and the owners there referred us to Lovitt. Fodors should rate and recommend Lovitt, because it truly is terrific. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay... More

When in Yarmouth this is the place to stay. Twyla is a fantastic hostess, she makes you feel at home the minute you meet her. The rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast was awesome ( great fruit salad and muffins!).

Twyla Rogers has woven a charming retreat within walking distance of the Yarmouth Ferry port, despite the lack of a continuously running ferries in recent years. While the rest of Yarmouth has suffered tremendous pains for lack of a ferry line, guests continue to find Twyla's open door. We were greeted at 9:30 pm by the vivacious little lady who... More

We recently did the Yarmouth Loop combined with a 2-way on the new Cat from Portland (for a 35th anniversary trip). Our restful stay at Guest-Lovitt on either end of the 6-day was absolutely AWESOME, and we will plan ahead to stay here every time we head back to NS - no sense to look elsewhere when you've found the...

We have stayed at many B & Bs, but this was our best. Twyla and Bruce were gracious hosts. Food was amazing. The bed was so comfortable I didn't want to leave. They went beyond, especially when we discovered a flat tire on our rental care the day before we were leaving, which was a Sunday. They found someone to... More

From the moment we arrived, we experienced Twyla & Bruce's genuine hospitality. This historical home has been upgraded, giving us all the modern conveniences (wifi, new plumbing/bathroom fixtures, well lit, warm) in a tastefully decorated setting with appealing artworks throughout. The bed was the most comfortable one on our 3 week trip. Bedding & towels were first class! Twyla's breakfast... More

Wow, what a place and what a landlady. We really enjoyed our visit. The owner was friendly and visited. Gave us a glass of local wine. Surprise Nova Scotia has some really nice wines. Breakfast was excellent. Great location for walking down to town and to the wharf.

You may enter our B&B as a traveling professional, vacationer or a honeymooner. Yet you will share an experience and a feeling common to all of our guest: A desire to remember and to return. You can enjoy a complimentary glass of Nova Scotia wine, either in the widow's watch or outside in the gazebo. We hope you will take time to enjoy all that Yarmouth has to offer! ... more   less
