As we drove up, we could tell that the picture online must have been taken some time ago. The building needs painting as do the back stairs which you have to use to get luggage in the building. The view of the harbor is obstructed by ugly industrial buildings. We were put in room 1. It is a nice sized room with a sitting area. Bed was good. Unfortunately, the bathroom was tiny- the smallest sink I've seen and there was mold in the shower. There was only one other set of guests and they were put in the next room. Why? They got up earlier than we did and the running water in the bathroom sounded like it was in our room. It was also noisy at night with the wind blowing. We went to the owner's cafe in town for dinner. It is just one year old and the food was good. Breakfast at the Inn was very good. The town is depressed - not too nice to walk around. Although the reservation print-out said there was a tv in the room, there is no tv on the property. This was a big disappointment for us as we really wanted to see a sporting event. The owner was very understanding and was gracious in refunding our next night's stay so we could get to a place with a tv. We appreciated his understanding.

Where do I begin? With the Beautiful, clean rooms or the delicious and creative breakfasts? The good humor and personality of our host, Parker, or the sweetness and efficiency of our server, Denise? We brought wine to enjoy on the 2nd floor deck and when it was too chilly the next afternoon, we moved down to the living room. Louisbourg Playhouse out the back door. The Fortress of Louisbourg a short drive away and a wonderful trail to walk along the water near the fort. We walked to dinner at the Foggy Hermit. Our two nights at the Inn were splendid! Highly recommend!

This house has everything a traveller needs. First impressions are critically important and you will be completely taken with this establishment. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The beds guarantee a good night’s rest. The decor needs a second mention. Someone has very good taste and throughout the house the small artifacts, most with a maritime theme, work together to describe the character of this house which was the former home of the owner. It is beautifully done, both in the individual rooms and the public areas. To gild this lily even further, you will be treated to one of the best breakfasts offered anywhere in Cape Breton. Not inexpensive but a satisfying, memorable place to “drop anchor” for a night or two.

Lovely historic house in the centre of the village and walking distance to restaurants and shops. We had 2 rooms, both very nicely decorated and with fabulous views over the sea and harbour area. It was warm, clean and the bed was very comfortable. One of the rooms had a balcony so was great to sit on and appreciate the evening sun. We enjoyed our breakfast and our host was really friendly and knowledgeable. This B&B is very handy for visiting Louisbourg Fort.

We arrived earlier than usual check in,Parker graciously welcomed us and told us the history behind this Inn. The room was very clean and accomodating. The included breakfast was beyond our expectations! Hats off to the hostess Denise who gave us the inside scoop of the area and for our journey ahead to Cabot Trail.

This B&B is terrific. The location cannot be beat, the bed was firm and comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious. The rooms are nicely decorated and many have views of the harbour. Parker is a hoot.

We stayed here for a weekend and were quite pleased with our room and the inn. We were in room 1 at the front - airy and spacious, with a small private balcony. There are hardwood floors throughout with tiled bathrooms, but it was surprisingly quiet in there even with most of the rooms occupied. There are no tvs, but WiFi is good. We had access to a larger balcony facing the harbour where we enjoyed relaxing in the evening. The inn itself is very clean and neat, with many antiques and books everywhere for guests to enjoy. The owner, Parker, was a welcoming and gracious host. Morning breakfast was delicious! Given its’ central location, you can walk to most attractions in town. Glad to have discovered this little gem and highly recommend.

An old captain's house carefully renovated with a nautical theme.A friendly welcome from Parker, the owner. Our room (No.1) was at the front. It was light and airy, spotlessly clean and very comfortable with all the usual facilities. The balcony was pleasant and good for watching the world drift, slowly, past. Car parking fine. The Inn is pretty much centre of the town and a very good base for the area. As it was quiet we had breakfast Foggy Hermit Cafe which is also owned Parker. Very good and included in on the room price. Moans, vey few, we could hear the next room's shower (at 6:00) and we had to pay for orange juice for breakfast as it wasn't included in the price. Fond memories as I write this piece. Need to go back again !

Spent two nights at the Louisbourg Harbour Inn. It was a bit of a climb for my husband carrying our luggage up to the 3rd floor, but once we got there we were thrilled with our room. Large room and a large bathroom and a whirl pool tub in the centre of the room. Parker, the owner, welcomed us when we arrived but we never saw him after that. The Inn had a lovely breakfast room, but since it was the weekend breakfast was being served at a local restaurant (also owned by Parker) called the Foggy Hermit. Breakfast was excellent there and the staff very friendly. We had dinner there the first night as well. The only negative comment I have is that the tv was very small and it was impossible to watch it from the bed. I would recommend this Inn to anyone travelling to Louisbourg.

A historic ship captain's home, with the interior renovated to a high standard. It is in the center of town, a half block from the fishing wharf, one block to the Loiusburg Playhouse (for live music and theater), and 2 blocks from the Foggy Hermit, where you go for the full breakfast included with the room. The inn owner, Parker, is friendly and helpful. At check-in, he gave us two good bits of advice: (1) plan to spend a full day at the fortress, and (2) hike the coastal trail at the lighthouse. We only had time for a short hike at the lighthouse, but would have loved to spend at least a half day on this spectacular trail. It passes through forest and meadows, along a rocky coastline with many secluded small beaches. It reminded me of the California coast around Point Lobos State Park and Monterey. Perfect for a half day walk/picnic in a beautiful spot away from the crowds. Sigh, I wish we had more time in Louisburg. Breakfast at the Foggy Hermit was very good, so we went back for dinner. Not inexpensive, but good quality food.
