MacKinnon-Cann Inn
Ranked #1 of 5 Yarmouth B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 23, 2006

We discovered the MacKinnon Cann Inn on the Select Inn Registry. We were not disappointed... Neil and Michael have done a suberb job- the house has been perfectly restored in every detail. We stayed in the 1920's room, each room has been authentically decorated for each decade of the 1900's. Michael and Neil have found treasures from each decade for each room. We were at the inn during a slower season, and Yarmouth is not really a happening spot, but we enjoyed walking about town before leaving for our trip up the coast to Halifax. The tourist info centre has a wonderful host, in z kilt with bagpipes no less, to greet each incoming ferry. A charming gentleman, full of helpful tips.
More on the inn, breakfast was delicious, the rooms and inn were very clean and comfortable, but it was the graciousness and sincerity of the hosts that made our stay. We particularily enjoyed chatting with Michael as he threw firewood off his truck and into the basement stoage area. We would stay again in a heart beat.
We asked Neil if they had heard about Trip Adviosr and they had not. We promised we would post a review, and although a year later, I have kept that promise.

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and took the CAT from Bar Harbor over the Yarmouth. We decided to spend a night in Yarmouth before heading up to Halifax for a few nights.

I found the MacKinnon-Cann online and after seeing the pictures HAD to stay there. When I called, the owner (Neil) was super friendly and upgraded our room because it was our honeymoon. He gave us direction to the inn from the ferry and told us to stop by when we arrived and he would give us some ideas of things to do around town.

When we arrived, I was overwhelmed by how beautiful the place was. The neighborhood was a little iffy, to be honest, but it looked up and coming. We stayed in the 1910 room and it was beautiful. Everything was à point and the antiques were fabulous. I later used the whirlpool tub, which was also fabulous.

Neil gave us directions to some places to see and we were off. Mind you, Yarmouth isn't exactly the most exciting town in the world and we were a little disappointed. It was a long afternoon, to say the least.

In the morning, we had a tasty and beautiful breakfast in the dining room. Lovely place settings, music, atmosphere....these guys go ALL OUT!

When we left, we spent about half an hour just chatting with the owners (Neil & Michael) about teaching (Michael and I were both teachers), antiques, Boston....you name it. They were so friendly and welcoming! If you check out their web page, you can see the unbelievable amount of restoration this did on the place.

All in all, it was wonderful. I just wish it wasn't in Yarmouth!
