More Than Overnight

If you are looking for an elegant, yet cozy setting, for your next special milestone or important gathering, Gillespie House Inn could be your perfect location. Our inn has a lovely heritage character with an energizing modern flare and we are ready to make every experience extraordinary and unforgettable.

There are indoor and outdoor meeting spaces, not only our lovely inn itself, but also in our adjacent yoga studio or even in our gardens or on our beautiful porch.  These spaces, each with its own distinct charm, can easily be converted to accommodate a range of business, private, relaxation or creative gatherings. We would love to host you as our guests or partner with you on an innovative venture. 

Gillespie House Inn acknowledges that we work and live in Mi’kma’ki, the traditional/ancestral territory of the Mi’kmaq People who have a distinct and significant history and heritage.  We also recognize that African Nova Scotians are a distinctive people whose histories, legacies and contributions have enriched this part of Mi’kma’ki known as Nova Scotia for more than 400 years.  In the 18th century, Mi’kmaq people and the British Crown entered historic Peace and Friendship Treaties, that created treaty relationships within Mi’kma’ki. We are all Treaty People.
