I've stayed at the inn several times in the last 11 years. I've always found Mark and Angus welcoming and accommodating. Mark knows a lot about the area and shares great stories. I usually stay at the inn in November and March, the wood stove makes the lounge a great place to sit and read and hear Mark's stories. I... More

Stepping through the original 19th century doors was like stepping onto a movie set. From the vintage crokinole boards on the wall to the cedar boat mounted upside down complete with trout jumping at bait on the ceiling you know this is someplace different. Breakfast is fit for a Lumberjack. The dam on the Nine Mile River, where the Ministry... More

My girlfriend and I travelled to Port Albert on a whim to visit the surrounding area and the West Coast of Ontario. After reading the older reviews on here, I was wary when she booked us in - but boy am I glad she did. What a hidden gem, quaint rooms and beautiful space just a few minutes from the... More

Just back from a wonderful trip to Ontario, Canada which included a two night stay at the Port Albert Inn. We really enjoyed ourselves. The owner, Mark and his son, Angus were very friendly and helpful. Our rooms were spotless and cozy and the breakfasts were delicious. I would have liked to have stayed longer. Very relaxing and interesting. It... More

My husband and I had a great experience there. It is very close to Point Farm Provincial Park. The house seems in the park which is at beautiful and only a few minutes walk to lake Huron. The Owner is a such great and friendly guy. The Inn has a lot of history. The room was very clean and fresh.... More

Stayed at Port Albert Inn one night. Truly interesting experience. Some of the previous reviews hit the nail on the head. We arrived after nightfall. The lighting in the pub created a quaint atmosphere. Tea lights on the stairway, bathrobes hanging in the hallway by our door. The building is old, the furniture reflects that too. Our room was clean,... More

The people running the Inn are nice but that's about the only positive I can come up with. The place looks nothing like the photos. The house is run down and the general area is unkempt. We didn't stick around for breakfast which was supposed to start at 8, although we were there a little before then and didn't see... More
