My wife and I stayed at Tulips and Thistle on our way from Halifax to Cape Breton Island. Although it is outside the town of Truro, it is only a 10-minute drive on Pictou Road, with no turns to town, so it would be tough to get lost. Ann and Larry gave us great tips for dinner in town. Our...

This was our first time at a B&B and, we were a little wary of staying in what is essentially a strangers home, but Larry & Ann are very welcoming making you feel right at home! The property and decor are very cozy and, you are provided with everything you could possibly need. The room was nicer than ones we...

This B&B has to be the Gem Of Truro. We stayed here for 8 days whilst attending our Grandson's wedding. From the first day we were treated as one of the family and nothing was too much trouble for Larry & Ann. The rooms were furnished in keeping with the style of the cottage. Lovely dining rooms, lounge rooms and...

This was our second stay. Larry & Ann are very friendly & welcoming hosts of a very quiet & lovely home just on the outskirts of Truro. While we found our room to be a wee bit cramped, it still offered excellent value. The full breakfast was absolutely wonderful!!! We're confident we'll be back a 3rd time & more!

This is a lovely country home! We enjoyed our visit with hosts Ann and Larry. The sheets on our bad were wonderful - very soft and comfortable. The location is just outside of Truro with easy access to Hwy. 104. Breakfast was delicious!

My husband and I stopped in Truro for an overnight stay while returning home from a trip to Nova Scotia, and decided to stay at the Tulips and ‘Thistle Bed & Breakfast. Our hosts, Ann and Larry, were very welcoming. Their home is absolutely lovely and the rooms are very clean. Ann offered us a choice of five breakfasts which...

We felt at home from the minute we entered. Lovely quiet country setting with terrific hosts. Multiple breakfast options including a "surprise breakfast" if you're willing to live on the edge....it was divine! Easy access as well as great dinner recommendations in town. Beds excellent! Would definitely recommend to anyone and would come back for sure on our next East...

Ann and Larry were the perfect hosts! It was like coming home to your parents after a date. They wer always excited to hear about your day. The breakfasts were wonderful and eating at the same table as the other guests was always enjoyable! The location in Truro was great. Close to the highways and centrally located to many attractions.

Went August 16 to August 19 2016. The hosts Ann and Larry were wonderful. Loved their B&B. Breakfasts were outstanding. From the fresh fruit, blueberry bread, eggs and other options. I had never had Eggs Benedict before and it was great. Every thing so neat and clean and quiet. Eating breakfast with other people from different places was enjoyable. Hope...
