Relax... Unwind... on the Bay of Fundy
Come to Gillespie House Inn on the Bay of Fundy in picturesque Parrsboro, Nova Scotia to discover miles of hiking trails, deserted beaches, soaring sea cliffs and spectacular scenery. Hike along the cliffs at Cape Chignecto, bike the quiet roads, visit the area museums, watch the sunset at Cape D'Or Lighthouse, attend a play or concert at Ship's Company Theatre or golf the scenic Parrsboro Golf Club.
Located on a spacious two and one-half acres of shady maples, fragrant roses and colorful flower gardens, our Inn is conveniently close to the town centre, yet a world apart. Enjoy the sun on the expansive front lawn, snooze in the shade of the century old maples or relax in the comfort of the Victorian Veranda.
The Gillespie House Inn offers seven spacious, graciously appointed guest rooms,
each with private bath. Antique furniture, hardwood floors, cozy duvets and comfortable beds await. Five fireplaces add to the warmth and ambiance. Our comfortable library is the perfect place for planning your next day's activities, chatting with other guests, catching up on the news or relaxing by the fire.
A hearty breakfast is served daily. The menu features fresh fruit, homemade gluten free granola and yogurt, whole grain breads and a selection of hot cooked items, complete with a bottomless cup of fresh brewed organic fair trade coffee or a choice of teas.
Gillespie Guest House
, our adjoining property, is a fully restored 1880's home offering 4 guest rooms with a relaxed carefree ambiance.
Your hosts, David Beattie and Lori Lynch would like to invite you to the Black Rock Bistro

The menu focuses on fresh locally sourced ingredients such as seasonal organic vegetables, locally caught fish and seafood, locally raised meats and local cheeses. We also feature a selection of Nova Scotia wines and craft beers.
