We had the best sleep ever at Brennan's. The bed was incredibly comfortable. Our room was great. The heated floor in the bathroom was wonderful. The house was beautiful. Noreen was very attentive providing dining information for a Sunday evening in Fredericton, and hot chocolate and tea to warm us from the rain.

The house has very interesting woodwork. The breakfast is good and the house has interesting places to sit and read a book (living room, upstairs nook with tea making facilities). The hosts are very welcoming with good dinner recommendations. We visited with the purpose of biking as much of 50 miles of area bike path as possible - we enjoyed... More

I travel to Fredericton frequently for business, typically staying three to five nights at a time, and after discovering Brennan's, I don't go anywhere else. Noreen and John create a warm and welcoming experience in their gorgeous Victorian home a short walk from the center of town. It's so relaxing to come "home" to such care and comfort. The rooms...

This B&B is a gorgeous property in Fredericton. The rooms are very large and beautifully furnished. Breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed visiting with Noreen and John and learning about the history of this house. Thank you for a wonderful visit!

What a wonderful opportunity to stay in one of Frederickton's old mansions. Great location by the river, a pleasant 20 minute stroll to downtown. We stayed in room 4, a huge room with some lovely original features. Large comfortable bed and well equipped bathroom. Beautiful reception rooms. Great breakfast. I can usually find at least one thing to moan about... More

We were greeted very warmly by Noreen who told us the history of the house, which she and her husband have lovingly restored over the years. We were in the small attic room which was cozy. Great location to walk along the river into town.

Noreen & John Brennan are so very welcoming, and their huge Victorian home is such an amazing place. Check out the sliding louvered window shades in the turret! We had Room 4, which includes the turret, and it was spacious, clean, and a great combination of Victorian decor and modern touches (A/C, plugs for iPhone charging, etc.). Breakfasts were great...

A great find on the banks of the St. John's River. Noreen and John Brennan were very friendly and helpful hosts. They have turned this stately mid-1800's mansion into the nicest B&B that we've stayed in in the Maritimes. Great location, amazing woodwork, large bedrooms and very clean.
