My wife and I stayed with Ralph and the crew at Homeport at the beginning of our trip to Nova Scotia. He was brilliant. Met us at the door - showed us around the two houses that comprise the B and B and was happy to chat with us or leave us to our own devices. His dinner recommendations were spot on and his suggestion that we call ahead for reservations with the car ferry (instead of using the website) was really, really useful.
Our room was delightful. My wife has very long legs and hasn't had a proper soak in a tub for a very long time - the tub in our room was cavernous and perfect for a bit of relaxation. The bed was very comfortable and the discussions around the breakfast table were wonderful. Recommended very highly.
- 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
