Welcome to the Willow House

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.
