We stayed here the middle of Oct/16. Jamie and Debbie were fantastic hosts. The location is excellent - right on waterfront. The room was spacious and very clean with a private bathroom. Breakfast was delicious with plenty to eat. We would definitely stay here again. Eric & Karen Smith

We stayed here only one night while in transit to our final destination. This building is an old historic house. We stayed in Room 2D, a large room with a king size bed. As an old house it has floor which slope slightly, floors which creak slightly and walls which have been painted many times. If you want a modern...

Jamie and Debbie are what makes this B & B stand out from the rest. They are such warm, welcoming and thoughtful hosts that they put you at ease right away and you just know when you arrive that you are going to enjoy your stay. The breakfasts were delicious with one specially cooked dish offered each day. The home...

Spent one night at the Willow House Inn while stopping in Pictou. The proprietors are very friendly easy going people who made us feel very welcome during our stay.

The owners are very welcoming. The room we were given was a bit shabby, but very clean. The breakfast was very good and we felt comfortable taking our time getting to know other guests and having more good coffee. Make sure if you go to Pictou, you eat a meal at Sharon's Cafe. It is where the locals eat and...

Charming bed and breakfast in great location in downtown Pictou. Very short distance from where we had just gotten off of the ferry from Prince Edward Island. Jamie and Debbie couldn't have been better hosts, very down to earth, friendly and hospitable. And what a breakfast they served! It was absolutely delicious. The morning we were there, Jamie asked if...

My wife and I stayed for one night at the Willow House Inn, What can I say we loved everything about it - our room, location, breakfast but most of all the Innkeepers. I especially enjoyed my evening chat with Jamie on the porch. I could have done that again. After a week we could have solved all the world's...

Loved this B and B; owners couldn't have been more welcoming or knowledgeable. Room was lovely with private bath and two brass beds. Breakfast was a treat, with a home cooked main course and a baked specialty (Oat cakes on our visit). Guest lingered over breakfast and conversation was lively.

Whilst we were staying, there was a large family gathering for a wedding and, at first, we thought that there would be lots of disturbance but this was not the case and we were made to feel really welcome. The inn is a bit 'shabby' but very comfortable and the breakfast is excellent. It is located within easy walking distance...

This family ran in is in an a large old house with antique furnishings ran by the kindest hosts. Breakfast was fantastic with homemade muffins, and eggs with smoked salmon. Made new friends here. Very reasonably priced for a family needing 2 rooms together.
