    Property Description  
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, predating Canadian confederation by 9 years, 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, two 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. Affordable, Convenient, and Unique the Homeport is the ideal site for all your Bay of Fundy and Southern New Brunswick travels.

The owners, Karen and Ralph Holyoke, have furnished the HOMEPORT with fine antiques and art in a distinctive maritime heritage theme to reflect the heyday of the clipper ships from 1850 to 1880. This theme is evident in the 10 large, comfortable guest suites . Each room is impeccably furnished with a queen sized bed covered in fresh crisp linens and a feather duvet or quilt. There is a private period style bathroom with either a claw footed tub, oversized soaker tub or Whirlpool tub and thick fluffy cotton towels and robes. Each room has a sitting area with TV, private line phone, Data port, A/C in season, and so many extras to make yours a memorable stay.

After guests are settled in they are encouraged to visit the elegant main parlor for complimentary afternoon tea and refreshments. To help plan your stay you will find the daily weather forecast and information on events and sights that you may find of interest. Take advantage of a local walking tour along Douglas Avenue to view the many grand old homes on this heritage street. Your hosts also provided a register of menus from local restaurants for planning your evening meal. The HOMEPORT, as its name implies, is a great spot to base all your travels, be it down the shore for whale watching or sea kayaking, up river for a quiet country picnic, or around town to view the many historic sights and sounds of Saint John or nearby Reversing Falls.
