So glad that of all the places we could have booked for our one night stop in Truro we chose Tulips & Thistles 😄. Ann was so warm and friendly when we arrived. Our room was very comfortable - bathroom not en suite but private with robes available for the trip across the corridor! Their recommendation for dinner was spot...

Thanks to Larry and Ann for helping us to rearrange our itinerary. Late in the evening of our stay, they worked with me at the dining room table to re-route our itinerary so that we could see all that we had come to see in Nova Scotia. Their suggestions worked out just right, allowing us to do the Cabot Trail,...

This is the second time I have stayed at this B&B. I was not disappointed. The first time was great. Nice rooms, great food and warm hospitality. This time it really felt like coming home. Well done Anne and Larry. I will be home again. Elizabeth Kopp

My husband and I had a lovely stay at Tulips and Thistle Bed & Breakfast for one night during our honeymoon in New Brunswick. Our room was cozy and and nicely decorated, with a comfortable queen size bed. It had a 3-piece ensuite bathroom, which was a little on the smaller side but great for us as we didn't need...

After a long day of driving I was heartily and warmly welcomed and given a beautiful room called the Fergus suite. Lovely furniture and decor and a sofa and reading chair and private bath and tv. Before I could even get settled my host brought me a lovely tray of tea and cookies! I was given great directions to both...

Behind a modest-looking suburban exterior, we found an extremely well-appointed B&B. Our room was huge, very comfortable, very pretty, with a balcony & views of big evergreen trees. Host & hostess so helpful, recommending several options for dinner and (most important to us) pointing us to a great coffee shop, NovelTea, as well as to Victoria Park, with lovely walks...

Ann and Larry were wonderful hosts. Interesting conversations and great hospitality. The accommodations were very nice and clean. Ann has a great outgoing personality that is very welcoming, and she seeks to engage you and help you. Larry is more reserved, but don't let that keep you from engaging him in conversation if he is receptive. He is well traveled...

The first stop on our tour of Nova Scotia was in Truro at this lovely (and immaculate) B & B. Ann and Larry made us feel immediately at home. Accommodations were wonderful and, as we told Ann, they serve the best breakfast compared to all of our stops on our two-week tour. We like it so much that returned for...

We showed up unannounced and were lucky to get the last room in this B&B that combines old-world charm with new world comfort. We were tired from a long drive and enjoyed sitting in the cozy living room for a few hours reading and relaxing over a pot of tea. The bedroom was nicely furnished and the bed very comfortable....

Was the best B&B, beds so comfortable and outside of the city with such a warm country feel, Ann and Larry were so very helpful, cant brag enough about them both. They also helped us with choices and arrangements to stay for the rest of our trip, We highly recommend we stayed 5 nights and couldn't of been more pleased...
