Usually, even excellent accommodation has a few minor flaws. If the Louisbourg Harbour Inn has any, they are well hidden.

Admittedly we did have what I believe was the biggest room (number seven) at the top of the house, but being nosey we looked in several other rooms and, although not quite as expansive, they were all of a high standard.

The owner Parker (his first name) is, I suspect, a perfectionist. The room was immaculately clean and everything fastidiously in its place. Parker himself prepared breakfast, the main element of which changed daily and was certainly different to the norm. Our three mornings saw strata (a type of baked egg dish), fruit popover (pancake with strawberries and peaches), then pancake wrapped omelette with ham. All delicious.

Louisbourg is not the most lively place to eat in the evening - there are a choice of three restaurants, two of which close early - but it's perfect for visiting the Fortress, and the Harbour Inn is the perfect place to stay. Give it a try!

By best far the best BnB so far. Love the old seacaptain's home. We had the master bedroom and it was incredible. Views out to the water and a private balcony. We arrived just in time for the first almost hurricane of the season and all night long the winds gusted and the waves roared. It really felt like we stepped back in history! Breakfast was amazing and the scones were the best ever! Parker gave us the history on the house and it was a very memorable experience. Don't miss it - really close to the Fort also.

we were looking for a place in the Louisbourg so that the drive to the fortress would be short. We found that and so much more. We had an excellent stay here for three nights. The house is 100+ years old and in immaculate condition. We had a beautiful "attic" room that was large with fabulous Jacuzzi two writing desks, a fridge, double sinks, separate shower, and huge amounts of space for our clothes and bags. We had a wonderful seating area where we could sit, drink our wine and look over the harbour. Parker is a fine baker and every morning there were amazing treats waiting for us before we got our fruit starter and our main breakfast - twice we had amazing different crepes and once a strata - a kind of quiche. The location was prime (all of ten minutes from the fortress); the house and area was quiet; the room was great; the food wonderful; perfect!

Room Tip: Harbourside room, which I think is room 7, is half of the attic. It is a huge room with an amazing view of the harbour.

We were looking for BB close to the Louisbourg Fortress. Liked the sound of being in an old sea captain's residence. The room was clean, comfortable and of adequate size with a full bathroom. Our second story room overlooked the harbour. The furnishings take you back in time and add to the appeal. Breakfasts were fantastic. Parker, the owner, was very helpful to us on things to see in the area. We had 2 rooms and stayed 3 nights. If you are planning a visit to the Louisbourg area - you gotta stay here!

Room Tip: Any room will do.

We chose this Inn based on Trip Advisor comments and were not disappointed in the least. Our Harbourside room overlooked the harbor and being at the end of the 2nd floor was quiet. Parker greeted us and showed us to our room where we spent a pleasant 3 nights. The room had a door which opened onto a deck where one could also sit outside. Breakfasts were absolutely the best, and all were gourmet. There was a plentiful supply of juices, milk, and coffee with a bowl of scones to top it off. After one of these breakfasts, lunch only needed to be a snack.

It was very easy to visit the Fortress with the reception center being only about 1 1/2 miles away. On the way to the Fortress is a small restaurant - The Lobster Kettle which had some great lobster. If you need to do some laundry there is a place very near the Lobster Kettle on the main street. Also in the area you can visit the Marconi museum and miners museum in Glace Bay, however I personally enjoyed the Marconi museum the most. In a sense the radio telegraph was the forerunner of the cell phones we enjoy today.

We enjoyed our visit very much and would most definitely come back again.
