The service, the setting, the accomodation, the people at the Barachois Inn are outstanding. We lacked for nothing: beautifully appointed rooms with tasteful original artwork and fine antiques (no death-by-Laura-Ashley here!), generous supplies of toiletries, crisp sheets, sink-into couches; wonderful straight-forward breakfasts (as opposed to the galaxy of outlandish concoctions often served in B & Bs, that leave one feeling sluggish all day); and hosts that have years of experience in making their guests feel comfortable and appreciated. The innkeepers, Judy and Gary MacDonald and their daughters Andrea and Denise, obviously enjoy what they do and go out of their way to offer sincere hospitality.
The situation couldn't be better. The Barachois is set in a tiny traditional village, with two small museums within 20 metres, a beach at the foot of the lane, and Anne Shirleyland some 10 minutes away. The inn's lovely Victorian garden and picket fence enhance the Green Gables mystique.
The MacDonald family has created a holiday retreat where the standards are uniformly high. It's not hard to see why so many of their guests are returnees.
