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.

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.

Each suite has pieces from the Locust & Starr collection, with an additional collection celebrating the work of a particular artist displayed on the main floor.

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.
