Usually, even excellent accommodation has a few minor flaws. If the Louisbourg Harbour Inn has any, they are well hidden. Admittedly we did have what I believe was the biggest room (number seven) at the top of the house, but being nosey we looked in several other rooms and, although not quite as expansive, they were all of a high...

By best far the best BnB so far. Love the old seacaptain's home. We had the master bedroom and it was incredible. Views out to the water and a private balcony. We arrived just in time for the first almost hurricane of the season and all night long the winds gusted and the waves roared. It really felt like we... More

we were looking for a place in the Louisbourg so that the drive to the fortress would be short. We found that and so much more. We had an excellent stay here for three nights. The house is 100+ years old and in immaculate condition. We had a beautiful "attic" room that was large with fabulous Jacuzzi two writing desks,... More

We were looking for BB close to the Louisbourg Fortress. Liked the sound of being in an old sea captain's residence. The room was clean, comfortable and of adequate size with a full bathroom. Our second story room overlooked the harbour. The furnishings take you back in time and add to the appeal. Breakfasts were fantastic. Parker, the owner, was... More

We chose this Inn based on Trip Advisor comments and were not disappointed in the least. Our Harbourside room overlooked the harbor and being at the end of the 2nd floor was quiet. Parker greeted us and showed us to our room where we spent a pleasant 3 nights. The room had a door which opened onto a deck where... More

This is a beautiful inn on the harbour. We only stayed one night but would have enjoyed staying longer. Room was very comfortable, clean and a decent size. View is great. Breakfast was delicious, gourmet compared to other places.

This was our second visit to this Inn and certainly lived up to our happy memories. You really know you are in The Maritimes here, the Inn is right on the Harbour where local fishermen come and go, the views are lovely and you can see the Fortress in the distance. The room was great, comfortable, clean and a real... More

We have just spent two delightful days here and enjoyed every moment. This old captains house has been lovingly restored to the highest standard, sympathetically and with great taste. Our host, Parker, was wonderful and just couldn't do enough for us - including climbing out of bed around midnight to give us the room keys we left behind. Breakfasts were... More

This beautifully restored old Captain’s house was a real treat to stay at and is very close to the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site. We had a choice of rooms and ended up selecting what was once the master bedroom. It was very well decorated, clean and comfortable. Parker, our host, was very friendly and helpful and the fact...

A very nice inn with a superb breakfast. We were there for several days and thoroughly enjoyed it. Room was very spacious, nicely decorated and very clean. Bath was quite large. There is a nice deck that looks out over the bay. Parker was very informative about local places to visit and staff was very friendly . It overlooks a... More
