This beautiful old B&B is actually 2 old homes on a hill connected to make one large building. The rooms vary in size and configuration, so there are many options to choose from. We selected the Verandah Room, a large corner room with a comfortable seating area and a king bed. As with most old B&Bs, there is no elevator and the outside steps from the parking area combined with the interior stairs make for some effort getting luggage into and out of the room. Breakfast was excellent both days we were there. The only glitch was mold in the shower/bath, but I feel certain the very accommodating owner will have that corrected by now. One can see downtown Saint John from your room, but it is a bit of hike, so the location is a downside. We would definitely stay here again.
- 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
