While traveling through the Atlantic Maritime Region our first stop was at the Homeport Historic B&B. Karen and Ralph are a great couple and so very helpful to guests visiting the area. We stayed in the Le Tour Room which had an exceptionally large bathroom which was a pleasure. It overlooks the harbor which on a clear day would provide... More

For no particular reason, we split our time in St. John between this B&B and another. We found Ralph and Karen to be very friendly, always available to answer our questions and to suggest local attractions; very clean rooms, good view, good breakfasts, great location for getting anywhere locally or onto Highway 1. The tub/shower unit is old-fashioned and took... More

Arrived on a Monday evening about 6:00. Door was locked and exterior entry not that inviting. Had to climb 13 steps to get to entry door. Not a location for handicapped or disabled. Rang doorbell for entry. The innkeeper (male) seemed detached from the whole process and we felt like we were interrupting him. Showed us to our room and... More

We stayed in the Beautiful Captain's Suite. I loved that it was on the ground floor and furnished with historical accuracy and comfort in mind. The breakfast was amazing and accommodated both vegetarian and gluten-free needs. Our Stay was even more special because the whole B & B was reserved for wedding attendees and used for the wedding and reception... More

Very nice facility, good views over the city and near the Reversing Rapids. Karen and Ralph made you feel at home and were very attentive to all details. The breakfasts were to die for. - all made to order if wanted.

The Homeport was a roomy, friendly B and B. Our room was spacious and very clean. Karen and Ralph were great hosts and helpful with what to see around St. John. Breakfast was delicious and other guests were friendly and that made for a cozy meal. We walked from the B and B to the center of the city via... More

Incredible!!! From the rooms to the food. Everything was great. The value rooms are great, large and very nice, but I suggest paying a bit more for the deluxe rooms. You will be blow away. The house is so beautiful with so much history. The gardens are done up very well. You will not be disappointed.

This is actually two homes joined to make one amazing bed and breakfast! Both houses were built in the 1800's by two brothers. We stayed in the Veranda Room which has an amazing view of the Bay if Fundy. Our visit was on Canada Day. We watched the fireworks from the widow's watch! Since the brothers were ship builders, the... More

What an awesome place! The home is lovingly kept by Karen & Ralph. We stayed in the Crows Nest which was an welcome retreat with a huge bathroom & whirlpool tub that was much appreciated after we were drenched in the tail end of a tropical storm! Shelley was the best breakfast cook and we looked forward to her beautiful... More

We stayed at the Homeport during a car camping trip up the coast of Maine and New Brunswick; after sleeping in a 30-year-old Westphalia for half a week, we knew it was time for a comfy bed and a decent shower. What we weren't prepared for was A) that St. John is a working city rather than a tourist magnet,... More
