Ann and David are very lovely owners and they have a nice historic stay in St John. We stayed August 19th and was our 2nd night on the east coast, so to have a friendly smile and a great breakfast, it was well worth it....More

Our suite was beautiful, with many antiques yet up-to-date modern conveniences. We can't say enough about the innkeeper and his wife, David and Ann. David was so helpful and couldn't have been nicer. Breakfast was lovely and they were very flexible with timing. A car...More

Perfect place to stay, food was great. We stayed 3 nights over 2 weeks, will stay here again if we ever go east. It is located close to the reversing falls, and the owners are knowledgable about the things to do in the local area.More

About
Description
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 More 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. Less
