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.
