The Willow House Inn B&B

Located in: Pictou
Experience the hospitality and charm you have always dreamed of...

Situated in the Historic Seaside town of Pictou is the welcoming and charming Willow House Inn Bed & Breakfast. This spacious home was built in 1840 for David Matheson, a Barrister, who became Pictou's first mayor.

You are greeted with warm Maritime hospitality when you arrive at the Willow House Inn B&B. Park your car in our large parking lot - you won't need it to explore Pictou. It is a short walk to the picturesque downtown waterfront area where you will find unique shops, galleries, museums, entertainment and a variety of restaurants.

Along the waterfront is the Hector Heritage Quay featuring the reconstructed Ship Hector and interpretive center. Here Pictou's history and Scottish influences dating back to the late 1700's will unfold for you.

The Jitney Trail begins at the marina and follows the shore of the Harbour. It is perfect for a stroll or cycling. From it you will enjoy beautiful vistas of the town or watch the bald eagles soar above the water.

This is the prefect location to unwind and leave all the hustle and bustle behind. The pace is very relaxed and the people friendly.

Located on Nova Scotia's North shore, we are an 8 minute drive to the ferry to
Prince Edward Island, 75 minutes to the Robert Stanfield International
Airport, and a perfect location to stop on the way to Cape Breton.
Other Activities
If golf is your favourite pastime you are in luck. There are three eighteen hole courses within a twenty minute drive. If you want something smaller there are two nine hole courses within a five minute drive. There is something to suit all skill levels.

Make the trip to Sherbrooke Village to visit this living history. A reconstructed village, it depicts life in Nova Scotia in the 1800â??s to the early 1900â??s. Stroll through the streets, enjoy a treat at the tea room or check out the saw mill.

Why not try tidal bore rafting on the Shubenacadie River? The highest tides in the world are in the Bay of Fundy. As the tide comes in and forces the water through the narrow neck into the tidal Shubenacadie River the bore is created. This is sure to please those of you who want to experience the bore first hand.

Take a trip out the Sunrise Trail stopping along the way to visit the Lismore Sheep Farm. A working sheep farm, there is plenty to see and do here. Continue along and visit the Balmoral Grist Mill, a working mill near the village of Tatamagouche. A little further along the Sunrise Trail is the turn off for Jost Vineyards. Stop and have a winery tour and sample some of Nova Scotiaâ??s finest wines.

Watch out for some of the special events that take place around the County. If you're an athlete, you won't want to miss the Johnny Miles Running Event Weekend in celebration of a man who surprised everybody by winning the Boston Marathon as a complete unknown.

In May and June, local fisherman catch lobster in the Northumberland Strait. This catch is a valuable part of our local economy. During the second weekend in July, we celebrate their role during the annual Lobster Carnival. 2009 marks 75 years of celebration for this event.

The Summer Sounds is held at the deCoste Entertainment Center every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from early July until the end of August. Featured are wonderful local and Nova Scotia talent.
The people of Pictou County take pride in a colourful past and an unparalleled quality of life. While you're here, take some time to enjoy a celebration of our heritage or relax and enjoy!

In late 1760's, a group of business people in New England, including Samuel Harris, John Witherspoon and Ben Franklin, acquired a grant that became known as the Philadelphia Grant. The first settlers arrived on the shores of Pictou in 1767 aboard the Betsy. This group of people prepared the way for a big arrival - the Ship Hector in 1773. The ship arrived from Scotland in the early autumn carrying almost 200 passengers after an extremely difficult Atlantic Crossing. Along the waterfront is the Hector Heritage Quay featuring the reconstructed Ship Hector and interpretive center. Here Pictouâ??s history and Scottish influences will unfold for you.

In the early 18th century, the wave of Scottish immigrants increased in volume. As the settlers spread across Northern Nova Scotia, Pictou became known as the birth place of New Scotland. These people brought many influences to the area. The town of Pictou was a hotbed of political discussion and dissent, particularly over the issues of religion and education. Pictou Academy, founded in 1816 was emblematic of many of these discussions.

Today, the people of Pictou County have many interests. The headquarters for one of Canada's largest supermarket chains - Sobeys, is up the road. Just around the corner from us is the Grohmann Knife Factory outlet, where knives are crafted with special quality and care and renowned around the world.

For those of you who love to stroll on the sand or just bask in the sun check out Caribou Provincial Park beach. Just a 5 minute drive away this is one of our most beautiful beaches. Swim in the warmest salt water north of the Carolinas or hunt for sand dollars on this beautiful crescent beach.
All of our guest rooms feature cable TV, telephone, high speed wireless internet and air conditioning in the Summer.

Our common living room offers comfortable seating for a chat, playing a game
with your family or just reading a book. There is also a piano for those who love
