Set high on a hill with a commanding view of the Bay of Fundy, and the Historic Port and Skyline of Saint John the Homeport Historic B&B/Inn c1858 provides the perfect setting to relax and enjoy the gracious ambiance of Canada's oldest incorporated city. The twin homes were built in 1858,and were constructed for a prominent shipbuilding family whose boat yard was located a few hundred yards below on the harbor tidal flats. Its unique Italianate architecture reflects the opulence of the time with very large bright windows and rooms, 10 foot ceilings, free standing spiral stair cases, and detailed wood work rosettes, finials and columns. Of particular interest is a pair of carved figure heads that have stood sentinel in the formal twin parlors for nearly 150 years. Come stop for a while and enjoy these magnificently restored Mansions and be pampered in Five Star luxury.

Homeport Inn was the perfect spot for my Daughter's Intimate Wedding. The owners worked hard to make every detail special. From the moment we arrived until the newly weds checked out...SUPERB SERVICE in a grand old dame of a building! We highly recommend them as a venue and a

Our suite was beautiful, with many antiques yet up-to-date modern conveniences. We can't say enough about the innkeeper and his wife, David and Ann. David was so helpful and couldn't have been nicer. Breakfast was lovely and they were very flexible with timing. A car is very

Hi, are you pet friendly?
Hello, we are pet friendly (only well behaved small to middle size dogs please). However, we won't take dogs if book from Booking or Expedia or other online booking agents. A lot of confusion information in their web-sites and we sometime get complaints. Also, not every room is good to host dogs. Please contact us directly (call 1-888-678-7678) if you have dog travel with you. Thanks so much for understanding! David / Innkeeper

"Premium suite is very nice with beautiful comfy bed. Has a pull out couch for the kids and a whirlpool tub."
"We stayed in the Captain's Suite and loved it."
"Stairs may be an issue for some travelers"
"We had a room streetside but the noise wasn't bad. If you wanted it quieter then a room on the backside of the B&B would be better."
"dont try to cancel"
