Felt good about this B&B from the moment we walked in. House is restored beautifully, but is not over decorated. Owner spent time with us to explain how to see the reversing rapids. More important, he helped us get a medical appt for my husband. Breakfasts were good, B&B is large enough so can meet many different guests over breakfast... More

We arrived later than we expected (but called ahead to let Ralph know),and when we arrived Ralph met us and showed us and told us about this beautiful home. He showed us our room which was the Rose Room very quaint and cozy. Loved the robes and old bathtub. Room was spacious with a small tv., but when in St.... More

This is a beautiful, nicely restored and decorated historic house. We picked it because it is located very close to the Reversing Rapids on the St John River. Ralph was very accommodating. We arrived fairly late in the evening, and he helped us find a restaurant that served dinner late after showing us our room.

I recently had my first B&B experience. I always had the impression that I wouldn't have privacy or you would feel like you were in someone's home. I stand corrected! We were there for a team forum and Ralph and Karen were spot on hosts! I arrived and was shown to an amazing room! It was clean, spacious and had... More

Karen and Ralph are excellent hosts! They are deservedly proud of their beautiful Inn and the attention to detail was evident everywhere. Breakfast was amazing both mornings. I would highly recommend anyone travelling in the St. John area to stay here.

Everything was excellent--location (nearby downtown and attraction), rooms/beds (big/comfy), breakfast (best variety), owners (friendly/generous), plus the adorable dog. The owners made personal connection with us making us feel comfortable staying there.

Unfortunately for us we got in later than we planned (due to long drive from Quebec) and had to catch the early ferry to Nova Scotia. It was such a beautiful place! We were not even able to enjoy the breakfast due to the early ferry time change. The owner gave us an unsolicited discount due to this. We didn't... More

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
