Blair House Heritage Breakfast Inn
Ranked #1 of 6 St. Stephen B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 October 2013

We stayed overnight at The Blair House in St Stephen, we were traveling to PEI the next day.
The inn was very comfortable and clean, the inn keepers were very helpful and delightfully cordial. Early evening brought everyone in the house together for tea, coffee and cookies, we chatted and exchanged ideas and experiences, it was like having a new family. The rooms were comfortable and clean and breakfast was delicious. We could not have asked for more, our group consisted of two senior couples and we booked two rooms across the hall from one another, just perfect.

Room Tip: Book early to reserve rooms with private baths.

David is a very good host and his breakfast was wonderful. His home is right on the border of Canada and the US, so it is a good, affordable stop for your trip. You can tell that at one time, this was a grand home.

Room Tip: I have to say that our room, on the second floor looked tired and is in need of freshening up. I do...

What a lovely historic home in little St. Stephen, New Brunswick! It was a perfect stopping point just over the Canadian border en route from Massachusetts to Prince Edward Island. David Whittingham provided perfect directions and details about crossing the border that some travelers will find useful. My daughter and I were welcomed, shown around the house, and given information on local restaurants and sites. Our room was lovely and comfortably furnished with antiques. We had the McKay room with twin beds, armoire, dresser, air conditioning, nice big bathroom, and small flat screen TV, and WiFi access. There is also a reading area upstairs stocked with all kinds of books, and a living room downstairs where you can also relax. We were the only guests on this night but normally you can meet your fellow guests over tea and cookies at 9 (or 8) p.m. Breakfast was fantastic: I had the blueberry pancakes and my daughter had the full English Breakfast. Fresh fruit cups, preserves, tea & coffee were all elegantly served in the formal dining room that has a huge bay window filled with plants. Every detail has been thought of and catered to. Thanks!

My husband and I always return to Blair House whenever we are driving into Eastern Canada. This was our third time there and we are never disappointed. The host, David, is welcoming, the rooms charming and they are decorated in keeping with the age and style of the handsome old home. David offers tea and cookies in the evenings and it is interesting to meet some fellow travelers then as well as at breakfast, which is served in a beautiful old dining room at a long and stately table. We enjoy returning here and thank him for making us always feel so welcome.

As soon as I called for reservations for this B & B, I knew after talking to the owner David, we would be very comfortable here!! David's English accent and demeanor were so relaxing to the soul, he made you feel comfortable. The B & B was a beautiful old Victorian, with all the charm and elegance, yet with such an inviting atmosphere. Our room was beautiful, roomy and very comfortable with an ensuite bath. In the evening we were offered tea and cookies and the breakfast every morning was wonderful! The grounds were beautifully decorated with flowers (the envy of any English gardner ) and the sitting areas were so relaxing! St. Stephens is a great location ..just over the boarder and what a nice town!

This is the third time that we have stayed at Blair House. Every visit has been wonderful. David is a great host. We always enjoy chatting with the other guests as David serves tea and cookies at 9 P.M. In the morning it's like having breakfast with old friends as we sit around the long dinning room table and enjoy a delicious and nicely served breakfast.

We like the location. it is easy to walk to the center, restaurants, the river, the walking path along the river, and the border. Beware that if you want to walk back toward the United States, you MUST check in with the Canadian Customs when you return. As we walked past the office two customers offices came running after us.

We had the first floor bedroom which we like. It is right across from a large and comfortable living room. However, the bathroom is very small and there is little room for toiletries.

Our visit in St. Stephen's was extra special due to the hospitality at Blair House. David, our host, was excellent.... friendly and inviting. He helped us find a great place to eat and invited us to an evening tea filled with conversation and cookies. Blair house is beautiful.... lovely gardens and beautiful rooms. The rooms were both comfortable and very clean. It was a great place to stay.
