About Us

Since 1984, the MacDonald family — Judy, Gary and daughter Andrea —has strived to provide true excellence in accommodation and service, bringing authentic Island hospitality to every guest.

From modest beginnings as a quaint Bed and Breakfast, we have received numerous awards that we are humbled to accept, and we continue to hold high the ideals that garnered these accolades. We are listed with Frommer's as "An Inn with a country flavor in a first class setting”, featured in Travel Holiday, which noted "This eight room Inn is pleasingly low on ribbons and straw hats, and high on art.”, and we have also been highlighted on the Canadian television series Discovering Great Towns!
