This handsome downtown inn is located in a brick townhouse dating from 1865; it overlooks one of Pictou's more active intersections. The innkeepers have done a good job of making the place comfortable while still retaining its heritage sensibilities. Some rooms (such as no. 10, on the third floor) have nice harbor views. A first-floor suite has a small kitchen, Jacuzzi, and dark bedroom in back. All rooms have private bathrooms, but the conversions have come at some sacrifice—upstairs rooms have showers only. On the upside: The inn is perfectly situated to enjoy Pictou's restaurants and attractions.
