Such a quaint inn and one I stayed in 14 years ago with my mother. I found our entries in the guest book! The "continental" breakfast was hot and cold cereal, toast, fruit, yogurt, juices, pasty ,cheese,maffin and hard boiled eggs. Very filling! The beds were so comfortable, view to harbor, very clean.

Our stay at the Braeside Country Inn was excellent in all respects. Excellent hospitality!! The owner is awesome!! She is hard working, warm, considering, caring and helpful. Our family would love to stay in the Braeside Country Inn if we visit Pictou again. It is definitely worth visiting Pictou, and I highly recommend the Braeside Country Inn.
