We stayed at The Blair House in St. Stephen's as a start to exploring New Brunswick. After a 12-hr. ride from NJ, we pulled up at 9 pm to be royally welcomed by host David Whittingham who offered us lemonade and cookies with the other guests. He escorted my husband and I, and our two grown sons to the upstairs rooms which were immaculate, air conditioned, beautifuly decorated. Since we arrived during a heat wave and St. Stephen's is hotter than the surrounding islands, David advised us about traveling to Deer Island and Campabello Island where we thoroughly enjoyed cooler temps and beautiful scenery. Another day we visited St. John..about a hour away..where we toured the museum, saw Reversing Falls, the Marleton Tower, and the Market Square. Also enjoyed a delicious dinner before heading back. David was so thoughtful that he had turned on our rooms' air conditioners so when we returned that evening, the rooms were cool. Each morning he prepared a delicious hot breakfast with a choice of three entrees. Great food and conversation began our day and always, David gave us great directions on the sights, restaurants and roads to take. Don't miss the Ganong Chocolate Museum and store in town. I must add that even prior to our visit, when we e-mailed David about cell phone reception, and the area attractions, he always e-mailed us back with ample information. He truly made our vacation more pleasurable. He and his wife run a great B&B and is the only place we would stay in St. Stephen. The town is small and if you are crossing the border, the Blair House is just minutes away and near everything. We strongly recommend staying at the Blair House.
