Tulips and Thistle B & B is simply the best - gracious hosts, beautiful accommodation and amazing breakfasts. Thank you so much to Ann and Larry for making us feel right at home - it was like staying with family. Don't hesitate to book with them - it was our best experience in Nova Scotia during our two weeks there...

The accomodations were very good and the host and hostess were amazing. Breakfast was excellent with a great selection to choose from and the "chef's surprise" was definitley a hit. The knowledge of the local area shared with us was much appreciated.

Ann and Larry host a very lovely and welcoming B&B in Truro. The room we stayed in was very spacious and airy. The location of home off the 104 makes it very accessible. It is also located near dinner restaurants with the hosts providing menus and recommendations. The breakfast served in the morning was superb, with more than ample portions...

Although we arrived without a reservation, Ann and Larry welcomed us warmly, and provided us with a room which lacked for nothing. It even had comfy robes in the cupboard for us! Our room was bright, spacious and quiet, and the breakfast - with choices! - was memorably delicious. We received recommendations for dinner restaurants, and for the best route...

Delightful stay with friendly, welcoming, helpful hosts. Nice spacious room with everything except a writing desk. Ours was a three-day visit with three wonderfully different breakfasts each morning.

Stayed here for 3 nights in September and couldn't have been made more welcome. Anne and Larry made sure we had everything we needed and gave us excellent info as to places to visit, the best roads to take and where to eat. Nothing was too much trouble and the pot of tea in the evening and conversations with themselves...
