The Customs House Inn was chosen for us as part of our touring package of Nova Scotia. Upon arrival the Inn wasn't much to look at (I should have known not to judge the book by it's cover). As soon as you walk in it is was spacious, comfortable and clean. Our room had a kitchenette as well as a...

I chose this title because I believe that the place has potential but that the owners still have some way to go to add the finishing touches to make it a B&B that will see repeat business. When we arrived in Pictou we had some trouble finding the place. When one approaches from the street close to the marina, the...

I stumbled upon this gem through our corporate travel website when I was looking for a someplace after I got off the Wood Islands - Caribou ferry. What a GREAT find! Given the later hour, the innkeeper was out but had left my key and note taped to the office door. I found a really charming room with high ceilings,...

This was a lucky last-minute find in our recent road trip through Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Pictou is an amazingly scenic place. The local residents, to commemorate their founding fathers and mothers, built an authentic replica of the ship that sailed here from Scotland. It sits in the picturesque harbour, with a number of good eating places nearby. Customs...

This Inn was a real find. Our King room was huge, well furnished and had a huge bathroom. This is the old Customs house, That has been restored and is very nice. The continental breakfast in the old pub was basic but good. The room rate was very reasonable.There are several restaurants within walking distance ( the Thai was great)

This was a really nice spot. Rooms were very spacious and Doug, the inn keeper, was a good guy. We all had a good conversation over breakfast. We stayed there during Canada Day and things in the town of Pictou were a bit slow, but we enjoyed the quite pace for a change. I would stay there again if over...

My husband booked this b&b for a weekend getaway during the lobster festival in Pictou. We arrived during an unusually warm week in this area to find a lovely large room with high ceilings and windows but no air conditioning ! And to our great disappointment the pub is closed and has apparently been closed for some time though the...

The Customs House building is interesting and unique. The owners have done a very nice job of renovating it for use as a B&B. The bed in our room was excellent, the appointments tasteful and the shower very nice. The owner/inn keeper is a pleasant fellow, but he and his business partners have not had hospitality experience. So...the lamps next...

Pictou is a quaint, picturesque waterfront town. Best situation for the PEI Ferry. Very clean B&B, or better B & almost B. Comfortable bed. Good value for the money. Breakfast is boxed cereal out on a counter in a run down closed pub. The coffee is hot, brown and plenty of it - but weak, like Tim Hortons. The host/innkeeper...

Beautiful, elegant, charming room. The included breakfast was not "available." Completely unable to find the innkeeper when we tried to check-out, looked everywhere! Chose this Inn partly for the on-site pub when we reserved but disappointed to find it was closed.
