Pictou turned out to be a charming little town. The Custom House added to the experience. Rooms were old but beautifully appointed. Nice continental breakfast and everyone we ran into (especially the Coast Guard employees staying on site) were delightful.

My wife and i were traveling with her brother and his wife. We I made the entire Travel Arrangements, I knew I had better not mess up as we were celebrating our 45th and they had Honeymooned in NS 48 years ago. The Customs House was a great choice. Doug, our Host/Innkeeper was very friendly and had a nice breakfast...

This stay got off to a rocky start, as the two king bed rooms we had reserved weren't available, despite the fact they had been booked several months before. But, this was the only real glitch. Fine old building with big windows, high ceilings, and modern bathrooms. Easy walk to everything in Pictou, and nice view of the water. Breakfast...

So nice to be there after traveling from White Pointe! Room on corner so had view of water. Light/bright/spacious/charming. No breakfast to speak of--toast/cold cereal/granola bars etc.. Room was a little dirty--ceiling fan--and cobwebs under the desk. Nice shower. Shania greeted us and was fantastic! Several restaurants w/n walking distance or near by. No elevator for those who have trouble...

Booked online, couldn't be more satisfied. Our room was large and nicely furnished. Ceilings really high, small kitchenette, large bed. Could see the water from our window. Doug, the innkeeper, was on hand and very friendly, full of good cheer. It was our anniversary night and he advised us where to eat and made reservations for us. Breakfast included down...

We booked this place on trip advisor literally about an hour or less before we got off the ferry. It wasn't too hard to get to but when we got there we couldn't find the inn-keeper. After finally finding him downstairs he told us the room we had booked on trip advisor wasn't available but he did give is a...

We stayed a night in this very cool B/B. It is in a good location and the rooms are a very good size, clean and well furnished. The host Doug is very helpful and we had a nice breakfast as we'll in the cool pub downstairs.

We stayed here recently. The house is very impressive and our room was quite large and overlooked the harbour. The room is simply furnished, clean, and quiet. I would suggest that the owner put in coffee makers in the rooms, a small touch that is very appreciated by guests. We hurried on in the morning so did not take advantage...

Rooms were very large and clean. Location was great. Service was okay, we could not get the ceiling fan working and kept trying to call the front desk but no one answered. This may be petty, but I found it really annoying because there was a hand written note from housekeeping saying that should we need anything to let them...

I'm a little embarrassed to say I didn't want to stay here because of where this B&B sat in the review status. I've sworn by trip advisor as a travel consultant for years and when in the hotel industry as well but this was an absolute delight. It was a long weekend and we did not have a lot of...
