Locust & Starr is an artsy, eclectic bed and breakfast that stands out from the others. Located on the corner of Locust and Starr in the heart of Wolfville, it’s less than a five minute walk to the downtown shops, restaurants and even the grocery store. Each suite comes with its own parking and self check-in.

The continental breakfast is self-serve any time you wake up, and has lots of choices, with local jams and honey, as well as eggs if you want to cook them up for yourself. There’s all day coffee and all kinds of tea, and an ice maker. The common areas include the kitchen, dining room and sitting room, along with a comfortable back deck and hot tub!

We rented the Bath House and it was rustic charm at its best. Whitewashed walls, a king sized bed with a puffy duvet, an indoor fireplace, a keurig and a good sized fridge are all included. Cleaning amenities were plentiful including hand sanitizer, masks, Lysol wipes and more.

But the best part is the private, outdoor bathtub and shower. Having a bubble bath with the birds chirping and breeze blowing was like a mini oasis and not to be missed! The bathside amenities and giant plush towels made a spa-like atmosphere.

You don’t want to miss the experience at The Locust & Starr Inn. The Mona Lisa Room. The delicious breakfasts with fruit, yoghourt, granola, bakery breads, croissants, cheese, juice and more. The late night patio lanterns. Under new ownership, the unique vibe is relaxed, fun, and ever changing.

    We escaped the big city (Dartmouth) to enjoy the Valley with its incredible November weather. Decided to try Locust & Starr. It is a historic house nestled in a quiet neighbourhood close to everything--closer than any other lodgings as far as we could tell. Very eclectic decor--a mix of art and kitsch, natural history objects and antiques. Our room was large with a separate sitting area. Very comfy and very clean. Wooden ironing boards were the bedside tables! Pennants festooned the 4 poster King bed. You have to see it to believe it. Lisa is a gracious host. She had 2 local beers waiting for us in our room when we checked in. Awesome breakfast, 2 freshly made Binky's do-nuts (which we took with us), fruit, granola, eggs, toast. Great coffee (a "Canadiano" according to my husband) and my loose-leaf tea was served in a pot with a china cup and saucer, classy. Lisa's whippet is quiet and well-behaved.
    We will return!

    This property is amazing and was exactly what we were looking for in an overnight trip to Wolfville!

    The Locust & Starr was steps to the main strip in town with shops and restaurants all within walking distance.

    The view from the street was charming, with a large front veranda perfect for reading with a morning coffee.

    The house’s decor is very unique and is why we picked the Locust & Starr from a dozen of local places to stay. Lisa has really put her heart and soul into the property and no room lacks attention to detail.

    We stayed in the Starr room and were greeted with chilled cider from the local cider company at the bottom of the street. Our room was spacious with a living room off of the bedroom and a full en-suite.

    Lisa left a charming basket of goodies at our door the next morning with coffee and home made donuts which we enjoyed in bed.

    Never a bother and always making sure we had a great stay, Lisa is a one of a kind host.
