We first discovered this lovely placed when our beloved Sheltie was still alive and we needed pet friendly accommodation, but even though we now travel petless, we plan our trips between Massachusetts and Cape Breton to ensure an overnight stay in this charming B and B overlooking the harbor in St John. The Innkeepers, Ralph and Karen could not be more warm and welcoming, the rooms are tastefully furnished with period appropriate pieces, breakfast consists of a range of choices including homemade baked goods, fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, and always some sort of hot cooked option (Ralph's eggs Benedict highly recommended when available).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
