Sometimes an inn is a place to lay your head. The MacKinnon-Cann Inn was so much more. Neil and Michael are wonderful hosts; they take the time to make you feel welcome. They know the area well and are engaging. The inn is a beautiful restoration, very comfortable and breakfast was excellent. Thanks!

Can’t say enough good things about this inn and it’s owners. The building itself has been very skillfully and lovingly restored. The rooms are super comfortable and very visually interesting. Neil and Michael are the perfect hosts. Breakfast was amazing. If I could assign more stars I would.

One of the highlights of our vacation in Nova Scotia was our stay at the MacKinnon-Cann Inn, located on a quiet, residential street just a couple of blocks from the main street and the waterfront in Yarmouth. Neil and Michael were welcoming and entertaining innkeepers with helpful advice on what to see and do in the area. We were delighted by their stories of the history of the Inn and the area, while enjoying a delicious breakfast. Their passion for restoration and preservation of this and their other properties is evident everywhere. The rooms are designed and decorated with comfort for guests in mind.

Neil and Michael were absolutely fantastic hosts! They are warm, welcoming, and very interesting people who have done an amazing job saving this once-condemned building and converting it into a haven of peace and comfort. Our family stayed here for my mother's 80th birthday and Neil helped to plan a very special evening surprise of delicious cake and tea served on very beautiful and exceptional china. We ended up being incredibly late for the cake surprise due to a fiasco at a local restaurant, but Neil was flexible and accommodating and made sure that mom had her heart-warming unique treat. The rooms are wonderfully comfortable--we especially loved the spa tubs!-- and every single detail is lovingly planned and executed. Our big regret is that, in the end, we only stayed here one night! I would highly recommend this inn and we certainly will return when in Yarmouth again!
