This was the first time we had traveled to the Maritime Provinces. We enjoyed this trip immensely. One highlight was our stay at Homeport Historic B & B. The hospitality, historic building(s), breakfast, overall neighborhood setting, and enjoyment shared with other visitors were top-notch. Proximity to the downtown and various important sites, including the Reversing Falls and the New Brunswick... More

;:We enjoyed our stay at Homeport Inn both at the beginning and end of our tour of the Atlantic Provinces. We looked forward to that last day because we knew we would be welcomed, and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. It was easy to get anywhere in St. John from this location. We especially enjoyed our dinner overlooking the river, watching... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Homeport. Ralph was very helpful for places to visit and eat. The view over the city is perfect and it is located within easy reach of downtown. The breakfast was a great start to our day with wonderful pancakes. We would love to return if we are ever in the area again.

This was our first experience with a B&B and our first trip to St. John. There is no doubt that should we return to this area, we would try to stay there again. We can only echo the reports of the yummy breakfasts and terrific hosts. We had an excursion planned for whale watching out of St. Andrew and the... More

We stayed in the La Tour room for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed the historic charm of this B&B. The home is quite beautifully decorated in the period and we could envision how the wealthy shipbuilders of the time might have lived. The room on the second floor was comfortable with a nice view of the bay, but the stairs... More

This is a unique B&B in a wonderful location. While not in walking distance of downtown, it is very easy to get there. The home is beautifully appointed and the views of St. John are wonderful, especially at night. With varying room configurations there is something to please everyone. Breakfast is a culinary experience you don't want to miss. We've... More

We stayed at the Homeport Inn for one night in mid-October, 2013. The "leafing" season had ended and we were the "last" guest for the year. What a wonderful way to end a driving trip thru Atlantic Canada. The house is beautifully restored with roomy well appointed bedrooms and multiple comfortable common areas. Our room, the Shore Garden Room, had... More

Homeport B&B is our place of choice in St. John's, NB! We have been there two times, and each time has been very good. The range of rooms is varied, and nicely done. Each year we have stayed twice, once on our way to Nova Scotia, and once on the way back. It is the perfect stopover from the Bay... More

A wonderful place to stay as part of a tour of the east coast. A chance to get off the road, and step back in time. We made a 2 week round trip from tour from Boston to Halifax, staying in chain hotels and wanted something different. The owners welcomed us into their home, well actually the dog did, before...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Set high on a hill with a commanding view of the Bay of Fundy, and the Historic Port and Skyline of Saint John the Homeport Historic B&B/Inn c1858 provides the perfect setting to relax and enjoy the gracious ambiance of Canada's oldest incorporated city. The twin homes were built in 1858,and were constructed for a prominent shipbuilding family whose boat yard was located a few hundred yards below on the harbor tidal flats. Its unique Italianate architecture reflects the opulence of the time with very large bright windows and rooms, 10 foot ceilings, free standing spiral stair cases, and detailed wood work rosettes, finials and columns. Of particular interest is a pair of carved figure heads that have stood sentinel in the formal twin parlors for nearly 150 years. Come stop for a while and enjoy these magnificently restored Mansions and be pampered in Five Star luxury. ... more   less
