We came across Steamers by accident and we so glad we did! A little family run gem right on the river in the cutest Gagetown. Located in a historic house, It is family owned and run they cook breakfast right there. Very comfortable bed and the river view! All in all a great experience!
If you ever wanted to write the great Canadian novel or go into the witness protection program, this century home is the place for you. On a tributary of the Saint John River that once had steamships plying its waters, the inn has fascinating antiques and historic prints. It is furnished in original furniture and chestnut, maple and oak paneling. With a wrap-around verandah, you can enjoy the peace of the riverbank while having a delicious home-cooked breakfast. Do try the omelet and the homemade baked goods. The Dawson family is so very welcoming, we'll be sure to include this idyllic spot in our annual travel itinerary.
We stayed here overnight for my husband’s birthday and Steamers was just the perfect place. A good value for our money as it was affordable, clean, comfortable and quiet with charming historic atmosphere and very friendly. Brent, our host was very accommodating and personable and had a lot of knowledge of the building’s history and area. You can tell that the b&b is a labour of love for him and his family and they have taken great care into maintenance of the historic charm of this Regency era house. Their kitty, Mary-Ann (who is a Munchkin breed) was a little doll of a cat! Was as sociable and friendly as a dog and was also a great host! We felt very welcome. Our bed was comfy and our breakfast was large portioned and delicious, as well as our espresso drinks. This place is also licensed if you want to just come in for some nice ale or a cocktail. Parking was easy as there weren’t many guests there other than ourselves, so it was very quiet. I’m not sure how this place would be during high season, however, Gagetown is pretty small and quaint, so I suspect t even in the busiest of months it is still pretty quaint and peaceful, as the house is large and can accommodate a good amount of people without a lot of noise or disturbances (other than an automatic old doorbell that goes off everytime someone walks in or out..). Overall, We were pleased in our stay and will be back if we’re ever in Gagetown again overnight. Highly recommend.…
My wife and I have often come here with friends/family for cocktails and have loved it. Incredible drinks and a stunning atmosphere. The owners are exentric and have made it truly unique. I stayed overnight for the first time with some friends last night and was pleasantly surprised with how well kept and clean everything was. It was comfortable, functional, charming and rustic. The staff/owners were very attentive and accommodating. Very cool spot, would recommend.
Location is nice and they are dog friendly Nothing else is good, nothing Dirty, old, unkempt and lousiest coffee ever went there yers ago and it was OK at best new management made us try it again because we support local efforts but it was a total bust deck is basically falling apart, not even clean, railing above the 10 foot fall to the river, broken Coffee was AWFUL..... two for 10 bucks ..... My Nespresso makes better any morning that I push the button Im sure they can improve but not sure they care Have been there almost three years apparently and haven't done ANYTHING Dont go until they make an effort Sorry
We really enjoyed our stay. The hosts were amazing, and extremely accommodating. The house is filled with history. I wish we had more time to take it all in. My only complaint is the bathroom and shower are very small, and difficult for me to use as a large person.
Nice and big bed and breakfast. Good decor and many antique items. The staff were friendly, and the property was nice. I didn't see the town or go out a lot, but maybe the area is nicer in the Summer or Fall
We stumbled on this house when searching for alternate accommodation and this little gem was a lovely surprise. The host was welcoming and couldn't have been more accommodating and the room was lovely. No tv, but good wifi, clean, comfortable and quite spacious with a great view. We loved it. Yes, there are cats, but I love cats and these were friendly so no problem there. Would have been nice to stay longer.
The antiques and cats made me feel right at home immediately. The family that runs this inn is knowledgeable and warm. We were given every courtesy and more in order to feel comfortable. The view from the porch was lovely. We walked to the Sunday farmers market and had a great time. The breakfasts were delicious and we are thinking of visiting again.
We stayed one night at Steamers as we were in need of a room after driving all day from western Quebec. We booked a room based on recommendations from others. On arrival, we were cordially met and showed our room by the owners' son. He also provided information regarding a nearby restaurant for dinner - good suggestion. We did know that the B&B did have cats (READ THE FINE PRINT IN THE DESCRIPTION), but generally cats in other B&Bs we've stayed at don't have the run of the house as these did. Fortunately they did not trigger my allergies as we slept. The building is a nicely maintained old inn with nice antique furnishings. And we had a nice view of the river from our room. Unfortunately, we didn't have any drinking glasses in our room though they provided bottled water. Sadly, the owners had their personal belongings scattered everywhere in the common areas. Breakfast was a simple hot meal, filling but not memorable. The cereal bar could have used some refreshing, and fresh fruit could have been made available. They did make a good capuchino. We did have a nice visit with Gary, one of the owners, and did learn a little about their efforts to operate Steamers; however, we feel they could do a little more with housekeeping to make an average operation into a superior one.…
