Beautiful, comfortable restored home

Location: Near the reversing falls
Beautiful restored house with an historic NB vibe to it. Spacious room. Hosts were wonderful and provided excellent advice to guide our activities and dining. Hot breakfast was different everyday and delicious. Wish we could have stayed longer

Pleasant stay

We enjoyed the two nights we stayed at the B&B. Notwithstanding the historic aspect and the many beautiful period pieces, host Ralph was very informative and a delight in conversation. Our room had a nice view of the city and harbor. The bedroom was well appointed, nice bed and bath facilities. The breakfast was also nice with the full complement of tea/coffee, juices, cereals, hot entrees, fruit and assorted breads/scones. All in all, a convenient location to the downtown and the reversing falls, approximately a 20/10 minutes respectively. This Inn is also pet friendly and has WIFI.

Lots of Character and Charm

Posted Jun 23, 2013
Pros: Welcomes dogs, beautifully restored historic house, friendly and knowledgeable owners. Breakfast was very good.
Cons: Can't think of anything.
We stopped for just one night on our way from Boston up to PEI, and just needed a nice place to rest our heads and let our dogs stay. The owner/manager was a terrific source of information (if he suggests something to do, you should do it). Breakfast was excellent and the house is beautifully restored and in an interesting neighborhood. Good value for the price.

Gerat breakfast, delightful host

Homeport B&B is a very interesting, excellent place to stay. The owner, who was taking care of things alone while his wife was away, was most helpful, welcoming, and pleasant. The B&B itself was quite interesting, the room comfortable, and the breakfast exceptional. The owner was quite helpful in providing information on sightseeing and restaurants. The room was quite comfortable in spite of the high number of steps to get there. But that staircase is magnificent. The location turned out to be very convenient and the view of the city wonderful.

Lovely historic home with water view

Posted Aug 5, 2012 on Hotels
We were graciously greeted by the owner when we arrived. Our room was up quite a few stairs, but was clean and satisfactory. Their policy of locking the front door was awkward, having to lock and relock after every trip to the car, both unloading and loading. The area was beautiful, neighborhood full of old sea captain's homes ship builder's homes. The yard was very nice with views of the ocean.

Better than a B&B

Posted Jul 10, 2012 on Hotels
The Homeport was charming, picturesque, comfortable, and affordable, with amazing views of the harbor. We were lucky enough to arrive on Canada Day, so that from the lawn behind the inn we could take in an amazing fireworks display over the harbor. Often B&Bs in old houses can be noisy and cramped, but this one was not. We would definitely return to this inn with the intention of spending more time.

Dem Einheitsbrei entfliehen!

Posted Aug 1, 2013
Pros: Familiäres Hotel abseits des Mainstreams
Cons: Starker Hundegeruch
Location: Gegenüber des Hafens von St.John mit wunderbaren Blick darauf
Zwei alte Häuser wurden zu einem verbunden, mit einem großen Salon mit Blick auf den Hafen ausgestattet und mit reichlich historischen Gegenständen dekoriert. Eine wirklich sehenswerte Lokation. Natürlich muss man bereit sein in alten Räumlichkeiten zu wohnen, in denen Böden knarren oder Türen nicht dicht schließen. Die Besitzer haben aus dem Haus aber eine familiäre Bleibe für Reisende gemacht! Vor allem das große gemeinsame Frühstück, liebevoll zubereitet, bei dem sich Gäste kennen lernen ist ein wirkliches Highlight! Ein muss für alle die dem Einheitsbrei entfliehen wollen.
