This was our first visit to Canada to visit our daughter in nearby Fredericton and we took a few days out to explore the area and spent three nights with Ralph and Karen. Our expectations were met and, indeed, exceeded, despite staying in the "dark and dingy" room described in a review below. We found the room to be comfortable and relaxing and we enjoyed the comings and goings of the cruise ships. Ralph and Karen were charming hosts and Ralph's knowledge and helpful suggestions for visiting the local area were very useful. It was unfortunate that the walkway into town was closed due to roadworks but we were able to walk along Douglas Avenue to the Reversing Falls Restaurant where we enjoyed two fantastic meals and sampled the Canadian wine. The breakfasts prepared by Jenn were excellent and different each day and I am sure contributed to the 7lbs in weight I put on in the two weeks I was in this wonderful country! A very special place where we would certainly recommend to family and friends.
- 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
