“Fine place with a you're one of the family atmosphere”
Reviewed June 3, 2009

The hosts, Jamie & Debby MacLean, make you feel right at home. Debbie's home-made jams & fresh baking complement your fine breakfast. They are evening hosts as well, as they invite you to join them in the common living room for a wide-ranging conversation.

The inn itself is located just a short walk to downtown Pictou or the bay front walk path. I have stayed in B&Bs on 4 continents and the Willow House Inn rates among the best.

We found this through the 'Doers and Dreamers' guide, which has been very useful on this trip around Nova Scotia. The room was large and comfortable, and the location convenient for downtown restaurants etc. The owners were most welcoming and the breakfasts are to die for.

An old house with a history and as you wind around the hallways to the individual rooms upstairs, you can imagine the activities that must have taken place in this 1840s home. We (two couples) had two rooms on the second floor, one large room and one room a bit cramped, but both were adequate and comfortable. The house is located within walking distance of downtown Pictou, which is a plus (be sure to walk downtown and tour the Hector ship). We stayed two nights, and the owner Jamie enjoyed spending time talking with his visitors, and he gave us good advice for traveling to PEI and elsewhere in NS. Debby prepared two scrumptious breakfasts, and we loved her homemade jams. One improvement that could be made is a better walkway down the slight incline to the parking lot as it is gravel and a bit slippery in the mist that we had that day. Overall, a great value.
