We were back for our second Not Since Moses run. The owners of this B&B have acquired the building beside them and have completely transformed it into a beautiful place for guests. (This is where we stayed this time). We had our two dogs who got to play in the yard (there are beautiful gardens around both properties). Our room... More

Maritime people have a reputation for being friendly and down to earth. So what do you call the owners of this inn? Aside from friendly and down to earth, they are also fun, fully engaged with their guests and their business, and very positive people. It would be a tossup to choose between which part of the "Gillespie House Experience"... More

My husband and I stayed at the Gillespie House Inn for two nights of our honeymoon tour of Nova Scotia. We stayed in Parrsboro for the easy drive to Cape Chignecto and Cape D'Or. What a perfect place to stay! The Inn and grounds were beautiful and immaculate and the breakfast was delicious. I agree with the other reviews -... More

We were a family of four with two big teenage boys so two rooms after a long car drive was welcome. The rooms were beautiful, breakfasts fantastic (maybe a little small for teenage boys but everything usually is!) and the hosts very friendly. The location is great...only 45 minutes to Joggins fossil Cliffs and 45 minutes to Cape Chignecto's amazing... More

Lori was most welcoming. Even though her Inn was fully booked, she found room for us in their new acquisition, "The New House", aka the house next door. It was still under renovation, but our room was well appointed and very comfortable. We walked next door to the Inn to have breakfast today, and it was super delicious. Starting with... More

Thank you for the review. So glad you enjoyed "The New House" It has been fun renovating and restoring this 1880 Sea Captain's home and giving it a new lease on life. Thank you for your suggestions and encouragement with our project. Lori and David More

We stayed one night in Parrsboro because we were going kayaking out of nearby Advocate Harbor. We were so sad to only stay at this place for one night. It was one of the cleanest B&Bs I have ever stayed at, and I'm a clean freak. It was also so well-maintained inside the entire house and on the grounds. Very... More

Excellent stay! The owners are lovely, the room was spotless (the bath in the claw foot tub was awesome), breakfast was fantastic, the grounds and public areas well kept and because the owners own a local Bistro in town - they also gave a coupon for a free dessert if you dined there. Everything was just perfect. Highly recommended!

The bedroom was very comfortable, quiet and pretty. The breakfast was healthy and filling and full of home made goodies. And the hosts were helpful, welcoming and friendly! The location is ideal for getting to know Parrsboro by foot. We would highly recommend.

Very much enjoyed my stay at The Gillespie House Inn, I felt very at home here and could walk to everything in this beautiful Bayside community. The owners are amazing, and everything exceeded my exceptions. Would recommend this B&B every time.

Refurbished B+B, clean, big bathroom with both shower and claw foot tub. Friendly owner very familiar with the community. This is a small town on the ocean a with 45 foot tidal bore. My husband and I would be happy to return to this nice B+B.
