Honestly the best place we stayed on our summer vacation to NS. Beautiful and sparkling clean house and room. Amenities were great, the grounds are beautiful and its a great location from which to explore this part of NS. The hosts are really sweet and friendly and provide a great breakfast. What a gem! Stay here!
We just got back from Nova Scotia. There is a reason that Gillespie House gets great reviews. Everything about it is excellent. Its a charming building, full of character, and completely spotless with regards to cleanliness. But I could say that about several places i have been. But what makes it really very special are the charming couple that run it. The home-made breakfasts are also treat. Parrsboro is a unique place and this is a unique Inn to stay in. I cant recommend it strongly enough.
Our bedroom was roomy, spotlessly clean, and had all the amenities we needed. Our hosts were friendly and served a nutritious, fresh breakfast. We were given great advice for dining and other activities in the area.
A group of friends recently stayed a night at Gillespie House and although it was off-season we were treated to an amazing experience of gourmet food, yoga, craft beer and access to the entire Inn for our group! David and Lori were amazing hosts and paid attention to every detail - we received exceptional service and within arriving and getting settled into our rooms we all agreed that this needs to be a regular get-away. If you are looking to reconnect with friends or family in a relaxed and comfortable environment and yet be spoiled with delicious homemade food and the warm hospitality, Gillespie House will not disappoint. We will definitely be back and are looking forward to enjoying more of what Parssboro and area has to offer.
Friendly host, very well kept and clean property. Large room with lots of counter space but not enough plug locations. Tight shower with not great shower head. Decent hot breakfast with granola, yogurt and fruit, muffins, and options of eggs and toast, pancakes, etc.
This lovely, beautifully maintained inn is not just the best place to stay in the area but also one of the nicest place we have stayed in Nova Scotia. The hosts are friendly and very warm and welcoming. The rooms all seem lovely - we stayed in one overlooking the back garden and it was really nice, bed comfy, beautiful linens, lovely, elegant, antique decor. Be sure to eat at The Wild Caraway when you are in the area. We come to this area most summers to kayak with Nova Shore Adventures and to eat at this DELICIOUS restaurant.
We really enjoyed our weekend in the Parrsboro-Five Island-Advocate Harbour area, and especially our stay at the Gillespie House Inn. The Gillespie House Inn is an elegant, comfortable and welcoming inn on beautiful grounds. Our second visit to the Inn, back for the great hospitality and amazing breakfasts.
We stayed at this beautiful B&B last night and we can't say enough about it. Firstly Lori and David are the nicest and most accommodating hosts we've ever experienced. They went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we needed during our stay. The grounds were perfectly manicured with a huge verandah to sit around having a glass of wine. The inside was immaculate! The rooms were spacious, updated and they even had working windows for fresh air. The breakfast was to die for with fruits, coffee, fresh baked goods and the best homemade multigrain toast we've ever eaten. If you're visiting Parrsboro then you really shouldn't miss out on staying here..
This is the most amazing B&B. It is warm, inviting, friendly and so clean. You can relax outside or inside. This wonderful house comes with two happy friendly pups that reflects their owners attitude.
Our second time staying here and we enjoyed it both times. Rooms are nice, clean and are a good size. The owners are very friendly and the breakfast is excellent. Nice grounds with a large porch to sit on and enjoy the evening. Also great to have two very friendly pets greet you.
