About Ron Arnold
A retired school principal and his teacher wife-and-former-sweetheart spent the last 8 years renovating this 1832 office building built by Samuel Cunard, the founder of Cunard Steamship Lines. Before that we worked in schools in three provinces, one territory and two countries.
Ron Arnold purchased this Apartment in 2004
Why Ron Arnold chose Pictou
One side of my family descended from Ship Hector settlers. We were looking for a retirement project in the Maritimes and this building needed some work, was located on the harbour and was empty. Kind of a no brainer!
What makes this Apartment unique
Cunardhouse is a piece of classic Maritime architecture and turned out to be a piece of history as well. Looking onto the harbour on the second floor are three crooked windows that make it stand out in all the old photos of the waterfront. They present a unique 'face' and we think we know their story.

Great place to stay for a couple or up to four people in a beautifully renovated historic home. Very large space with high feelings. So much nicer than a motel room. Big kitchen great to prepare a few of your own meals. Enjoyed a few local restaurants as well within walking distance. Very quick drive to the ferry dock if you want to check out Pictou Island or the bigger one, PEI. Great internet reception. Very reasonable cost for this spot. Great host.
Clean and comfortable
Overall great place to stay has all amenities you would need. Friendly owner upstairs ready to help if needed. Building has interesting story and located close to everything. The house is clean and well furnished. Would stay again if in the area.
It was second time I was renting this property. Loved the stay, beautiful view of the Bay and close to beaches. Thanks again for having us at your house.
Ron was a welcoming host and provided excellent advice on local restaurants and locations to visit.
The property is amazing and has all the amenities of home, close too all that Pictou offers at a price that is unbeatable comparatively.
