I am thrilled to be the new owner and Innkeeper of the Locust & Starr Inn! I first stayed at this magical place in September 2020 and immediately fell in love with it. Over the course of the next six months, I came back to stay three more times and developed a relationship with Lisa, the previous owner. I loved Lisa’s warm personality and eclectic sense of style. When I learned that she was considering selling the Inn, I asked her to think of me when it was time to sell. Although sooner than anticipated, I was happy to get that call at the end of June 2021.
Lisa generously left the Inn furnished in her style when I took over ownership in December 2021 and I plan to keep it that way! I am from Halifax and am the mom of four amazing young adult daughters. As a Chartered Accountant, this venture is way outside my comfort zone but I am up for the challenge!
Please come and stay with us and learn about the amazing gems that Wolfville and the Annapolis Valley have to offer!
What Our Guests Say
Eclectic, comfortable, clean and spacious suite. Right next to downtown but street is quiet. I will be happy to stay again.
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.
This was my third time staying at the Inn and it was fantastic! I cant say enough good things about Locust and Starr - it's an absolutely wonderful experience and I highly recommend it.

Locust & Starr Inn is the closest accommodation to the center of Wolfville, located on a quiet neighborhood street. The inn is a 1902 house, decorated with modern and vintage art. It is as different as it is eclectic with all the comforts of home. Each suite features artwork from the Locust & Starr art collection.
Settled in the 1760s by New Englanders, Wolfville is a fetching college town with ornate Victorian homes (some of which have been converted into B&Bs), a lively arts scene, and several fine restaurants.
Acadia University was established in 1838, and its handsomely groomed hillside campus dominate the town, and the student population rivals that of the residents.
The natural setting is impressive, too: after all, the fields here are fertile enough to support a thriving wine industry. That’s due partly to a mild microclimate and partly to an elaborate system of dikes built by the Acadians in the early 1700s to reclaim arable land from the unusually high tides. They can still be viewed along many of the area's back roads. The original Acadians didn’t get to enjoy the fruits of their labor, but their legacy lives on at nearby Grand-Pré.
