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

I highly recommend staying here. The B&B owners are unbelievably kind, wonderful, and welcoming. I truly admire the hard work that must go into maintaining and running this gorgeous B&B. They do a great job. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, wish we could've stayed longer. We've travelled 28 countries around the world, being lucky enough to stay in 4 castle... More

Food was not very good. Host was an indignant know- it- all. We were charged for food that was not received. Lots of details missed. Hard to reach. Unfortunate really because its a good property. I would however not recommend for a business event.

As much as I do not like and take great exception to the content of this review It has given me an opportunity to respond. In 18 years of Inn keeping and serving hundreds of meals to thousands of satisfied weddings, families and corporate clients I have never had the unfortunate pleasure of dealing with a person as this so...

We have stayed at The Homeport before; in fact, we arrange every trip to our summer cottage in Cape Breton to ensure that we make the necessary break in the journey to stay in The Homeport. Once you discover a great place, it doesn't make any sense to gamble. We usually first relax in our lovely room with a drink... More

We had a meeting today with a 5 hour time line to discuss business matters. We arrived to have coffee, tea, juice, water and fresh still warm home made blueberry muffins! I don't normally eat breakfast but couldn't resist, they were great. Meeting progressed and through a working lunch we enjoy lasagna, caesar salad and garlic bread. Finished off with... More

Hi Zip Thanks for the kind review of our business, corporate and meeting services. As much fun as the B&B is we do need to branch out and provide meeting and meals to many corporate clients. Many of them are with us several times in a year. Hope to have you back soon Ralph More

We stayed here twice on a recent driving trip, the first time as a planned waystop, then on our way home as well, after another accommodation fell through, and Karen and Ralph came through with a last-minute room for us and our dogs. The place is beautifully done, spacious, with high ceilings and lovely decor. There is an aura of... More

Hi and thank you for the kind words. I think it says a lot of our product if folks return for a second visit. Glad you enjoyed the Captains suite at 650 sqft it is a bit large but give ample space to really unwind and being main floor with hardwood floor helps with mobility issues and with dogs. Have...

Our "room" was a series of connected spaces: bedroom, kitchen, sitting room and bath. We arrived late and left early and so did not fully enjoy the space, but admired it just the same. Our beds were very comfortable and the large bath & shower were great. Hosts Ralph & Karen helped with luggage, restaurant recommendations (& menus) and answered... More
