“Wonderful Surprise”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Stayed over one night August 14th on our way back from a long day of whale watching in Digby Neck NS and then a 3 hour ferry ride to Saint John. Carl & Jim were most welcoming in their beautiful home & we were so comfortable that we were sorry to be there such a short time. They directed us to a wonderful restaurant (Thandi's) for a late dinner .. the best meal we had in our 12 days on the east coast. Our next trip east we hope to fly into Saint John so we can stay at the Manor once again.

Visiting Saint John again to see family and checked into Mahogany Manor on the advice of a local relative. A beautifully restored Victorian mansion, run by a delightful couple who made us feel like one of the family. When our little dog cried for us as we had dinner at a nearby restaurant, they let her out of our room and kept her company. When we needed (well, wanted) a bottle of wine long after the local liquor store had closed, they ransacked their own cellar for us. And they knew the local restaurant scene well enough to recommend the right one and then call up and reserve a table for us. Great breakfasts, a lovely gallery to sit on out front sipping tea on a summer afternoon, a massive deck and garden out back to enjoy, free wireless internet and long distance: couldn't really ask for more. Great place to stay.

Room Tip: The ground floor room is great if you have mobility issues.

Greetings,

It was so great to be able to share our home with you for several days. It really gives us a wonderful opportunity to get to know our guests better. Glad you felt like one of the family - we strive very hard to achieve that feeling because it is important to us in our own travels. Glad you have family in the area because we will have additional opportunities to share our home with you. Thank you for your car suggestions they were very helpful.

Regards,

Carl Trickey-Crooks

Stayed one night in Mahogany Manor on our way to Prince Edward Island. Hosts very accommodating, home amazing, garden amazing, food amazing. Walk to downtown attractions. Lots to do in Saint John but remember its a working port and industrial city as well. When you go to the Reversing Falls you will be surprised to see a huge factory directly across the river, omitted from all tourists ads.

We work very hard to make your stay comfortable and to provide you with a positive experience that will hopefully entice you back for additional exploration. We are an industrial city but be certain to explore the many aspects of our historic architecture and the wonders of our geopark.

We look forward to your return. Until then good health and safe travel.

Stopped here but unfortunately they had no vacancies. Men immediately offered to call another B&B (Tanner Home Inn) and even gave us an umbrella since it was raining. Place looked great so we would have liked to stay here (other place was also good) since the reception was very promising.

Jim and Carl were delightful hosts and their inn is a lovely place to stay. It is close to everything and a great neighborhood to walk around in. The food is delicious and decadent. The rooms are comfortable and pleasant and quiet. Personally, I would like the option of watching television in the bedrooms, but it is hard to complain about the good company of fellow travelers and the opportunity to sit in a beautiful garden enjoying the evening with no electronic entertainment!

Greetings,

Thank you for your recent visit to our city and for the opportunity to share our home with you. I am glad you had a comfortable stay and that we met your expectations for clean, comfortable accommodation. Jim lived through the brief period when the previous owners had televisions in the guest rooms - the noise level was high and the interaction between guests and with the owners very limited - thus the decision to not have them in each room.
Good health to you and your family.

Carl and Jim were amazing and very personable hosts. The house is beautiful and the breakfasts were exceptional. Carl and Jim provided recommendations for restaurants and things to do and see. They also enlightened us with the history of Saint John. I will definitely go back!

This place is fantastic. Very nice hosts. We ended up getting there much latter than we had planned. Did not get to see much of the town. When we were driving in I was a little concerned as the town is going through a renovation. We were told by James that the town is very safe. Loved the place. Talked to several very friendly natives. Would love to back again and spend more time. Would absolutely stay here again

Room Tip: We stayed in the cranberry wine room. The balcony was wonderful.
