Pictou hotels and hostels
Dolan's Inn & Suites
The Lionstone Inn
Customs House Inn
The tall stone walls here are at once imposingly chic and reassuringly solid. The chunky antique decor is as sturdy and elegant as the walls and many rooms have waterfront views.
Willow House Inn
This historic c 1840 home is a labyrinth of staircases and cozy, antique rooms. The owners whip up great breakfasts as well as conversation and tips for what to do around town.
This atmospheric 1920s resort is on more than 60 hectares of wooded land between Caribou/Munroe's Island Provincial Park and Pictou. Beautifully renovated ocean-side log cabins have original stone fireplaces. Motel rooms are also available.
