We felt at home from the minute we entered. Lovely quiet country setting with terrific hosts. Multiple breakfast options including a "surprise breakfast" if you're willing to live on the edge....it was divine! Easy access as well as great dinner recommendations in town. Beds excellent! Would definitely recommend to anyone and would come back for sure on our next East... More

Ann and Larry were the perfect hosts! It was like coming home to your parents after a date. They wer always excited to hear about your day. The breakfasts were wonderful and eating at the same table as the other guests was always enjoyable! The location in Truro was great. Close to the highways and centrally located to many attractions.

Went August 16 to August 19 2016. The hosts Ann and Larry were wonderful. Loved their B&B. Breakfasts were outstanding. From the fresh fruit, blueberry bread, eggs and other options. I had never had Eggs Benedict before and it was great. Every thing so neat and clean and quiet. Eating breakfast with other people from different places was enjoyable. Hope... More

So glad that of all the places we could have booked for our one night stop in Truro we chose Tulips & Thistles 😄. Ann was so warm and friendly when we arrived. Our room was very comfortable - bathroom not en suite but private with robes available for the trip across the corridor! Their recommendation for dinner was spot... More

Thanks to Larry and Ann for helping us to rearrange our itinerary. Late in the evening of our stay, they worked with me at the dining room table to re-route our itinerary so that we could see all that we had come to see in Nova Scotia. Their suggestions worked out just right, allowing us to do the Cabot Trail,... More

This is the second time I have stayed at this B&B. I was not disappointed. The first time was great. Nice rooms, great food and warm hospitality. This time it really felt like coming home. Well done Anne and Larry. I will be home again. Elizabeth Kopp

Our room was cozy and and nicely decorated, with a comfortable queen size bed. It had a 3-piece ensuite bathroom, which was a little on the smaller side but great for us as we didn't need... More

After a long day of driving I was heartily and warmly welcomed and given a beautiful room called the Fergus suite. Lovely furniture and decor and a sofa and reading chair and private bath and tv. Before I could even get settled my host brought me a lovely tray of tea and cookies! I was given great directions to both... More

Behind a modest-looking suburban exterior, we found an extremely well-appointed B&B. Our room was huge, very comfortable, very pretty, with a balcony & views of big evergreen trees. Host & hostess so helpful, recommending several options for dinner and (most important to us) pointing us to a great coffee shop, NovelTea, as well as to Victoria Park, with lovely walks... More

Ann and Larry were wonderful hosts. Interesting conversations and great hospitality. The accommodations were very nice and clean. Ann has a great outgoing personality that is very welcoming, and she seeks to engage you and help you. Larry is more reserved, but don't let that keep you from engaging him in conversation if he is receptive. He is well traveled... More
