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

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

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

This was a perfect B&B experience for us! The house is spacious and beautifully and lovingly restored, furnished with modern comforts and amenities and still an historic feel. The owners were so gracious and welcoming that you truly felt you were in a home rather than a public lodging. The breakfast was just wonderful with lots of fresh fruit and... More

We were here for 2 nights in August as part of a 3 week tour of Eastern Canada and really enjoyed our stay. The Inn is beautiful and we were made to feel very welcome by the owners, who were more than happy to make us a pot of tea on arrival! Our family size room was great, very spacious... More

We arrived from the US, late, in a pouring rain, and left shortly after breakfast....it just wasn't enough time. This fine, large property is exquisitely furnished, the owners were very hospitable, and the bedding and breakfast were very good. Sadly, we had lots to see in NB, NS, and PEI, and couldn't spend more time at the Homeport, but we... More

If you want perfection go stay at the Hilton; however if you want to be truly comfortable and see St. John for its true splendour then you should stay here. Homeport is perched high up on a hill overlooking St. John and consists of two incredibly old grand homes that were properly joined by a link that Ralph had built... More

Homeport Historic Inn in Saint John NB is a charming property, with commanding views and lovingly very well kept by proprietor, Ralph. We found it very well located as regards proximity to Saint John downtown and the awe-inspiring natural attraction known as the Reversing Rapids. Great value for money for this location so close to a major North American city.... More

Great Location in St. John. Wonderful breakfast. Ralph, our host, showed us how to walk into the center of the city along the shore. Views from the "Widow's Walk" of the whole harbor. Our room was inexpensive and beautifully historically maintained. Ralph can share stories of local politics, history, and places to eat and visit. We biked the Fundy Trail... More

The rooms were spotless and comfortable. The owners were extremely helpful in explaining directions around the city. Breakfast was delicious. There was a nice collection of DVDs to watch. There is also a really nice view of the city from here.
