We have stayed at Blair House many times but it has recently changed hands an we were worried it had changed. Not to worry. It is still a great place to stay with wonderful accommodating hosts. We will return.

This the first time I have been compelled to write a review, so I hope I am capable of doing the Blair House Heritage Inn justice. My husband and I drove to St. Stephens from Cambridge, Ontario. Upon arrival at the Blair House my first impression was that the Inn is breathtakingly beautiful, the size and architectural features of this century home are stunning! upon entry the Inn did not disappoint. The attention to detail is incredible. The decor is warm and inviting, while maintaining the integrity of the era that this home was built, Our room "the St, Croix" is both charming and very clean and comfortable. The bed is so welcoming and very comfortable. The best sleep I have ever had away from home. The ensuite bathroom offered ever imaginable toiletry and hair dryer. We were warmly welcomed by Sherie and here husband John, the managers of the Inn. They gave us a quick review of what the Inn has to offer and invited us to join them in the common living room. After settling in our room we joined Sherie, John and the owners Charlie and Rosie in the common living room. they generously offered their insights on the activities and restaurants St. Stephens has to offer. The common area offers 24 hour refreshments, including tea, coffee, water and freshly baked cookies. Before retiring each night you are requested to select the time and breakfast menu you'd like and simply hang your choice on the door knob. The breakfast is served in the formal dining room, made fresh and served by John, the Chef. This was a pleasant experience, as opposed to the traditional buffet. The menu offers many options to please anyone. Over breakfast we had the opportunity to meet and chat with the other guests, the came from provinces across the country. Thank you so much John, Sherie, Rosie and Charlie, for sharing your gorgeous home and making us feel like family. Till we meet again, Wade and Yvonne.

First impressions were not the greatest. We were unsure of where to park or where to enter. Parked at the back and carried luggage downhill to the front of the house. Steep front steps. We were greeted by a sign on the door telling us to look for our names to find our room number. The room key was in the lock. It was 6:30 pm - the arrival time we quoted. Another party arrived shortly after us, parked alongside the front steps and awkwardly left their car there for the night. Overall, the house looks and feels a bit worn out. The bannister going upstairs to the rooms was wobbly. Later when we met the new owner, he did talk about the needed renovations. Breakfast was a bit on the pale side. The unpleasant part came when checking out. They have a payment system connected to a third party entity. The credit card was rejected (3 attempts) as was the debit card. Fortunately we had cash. Later, the cards wouldn't work at a gas station and even worse, at another hotel. Imagine if one of us had been traveling alone - try finding an appropriate bank open on a weekend along the TransCanada highway. The folks at VISA said the card was breached multiple times within minutes after leaving the inn. If you are in the hospitality business, your guests' security should be paramount. Overall, just one big annoyance when we were looking for a convenient place to stay.

Hello ScotiaFolk, We are sorry to hear about your experience. The back of the house is our living headquarters. Guests are allowed to park anywhere in front of the house. The steps have been there for many years, but we appreciate your concerns regarding them. On the door is a welcome sign with instructions. We are always home but may be in other parts of the house. We understand that the home itself needs some work done to it. The house itself is older then Canada after all. We apologize for breakfast. We try and keep it as neutral as possible with options on the table such as salt and pepper etc to add if needed. As for the check out we strongly suggest you contacting your bank provider for more details. We strongly assure you that our guests security is number one. Thank you for your input and we will learn and grow from it. Peace and prosperity - Blair house Innkeepers.

My husband and I are biking up the East Coast and our finishing spot for the day was St. Stephen, New Brunswick. We looked at the motel options in the area and quickly dismissed them. We were so happy that John and Sherie had a room available for us at their B&B. The space is clean and organized. We settled right in and were delighted to spend some time with them and hearing their stories of the house. We had every amenity that we needed including water in our rooms. Coffee, tea, cookies and water were available in the common area and we were able to sit and enjoy some time in front of the fire place. We had a home cooked breakfast in the morning and took the opportunity to take some pictures with them on their front step. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting their family-sons Jaxon and Brandon and dogs Buddy and Sabrina. The Blair House Inn could be a quiet get away or a enjoyable time meeting new people—whatever you are in search of.

I really had the honour of being a guest at the Blair House from April 11 to April 15 of 2019. I was actually very fortunate that the owners allowed me to have a room before the official opening date which took place today. Everything about my stay was amazing. That is from the cleanliness of the rooms, to the fabulous, hearty home-cooked breakfast and the warmth of the innkeepers - the Sheldrakes. If you are ever taking the US route to the Maritimes through Calais, Maine, the Blair House is a must. I SHALL return!

We had not planned to stay in New Brunswick, but decided to spend the weekend touring the province. We had thought of the town as merely a border crossing. But the Blair house made it a very nice experience. The house is historic and well cared for. The bed was comfortable as were the room and bath. Breakfast was excellent, with a choice of two options: mixed grill or blueberry pancakes with maple syrup. Both of us chose the mixed grill, of sausages, scrambled eggs, tomato and mushroom. Jam was home made and delicious. It was a lovely fall evening in the town and we took a picturesque stroll before eating at a dinner up the main street. All in all a very good experience.

This was the first place we stopped on our tour through the Canadian Atlantic Provinces. We stayed one night. David, the innkeeper, was warm & welcoming. Our room, #1 on the second floor of this Victorian 'charmer', was spacious, the bed comfortable. There's no elevator, so be prepared to carry your 'stuff' up, though David did offer to help. The morning's fresh cooked breakfast was fabulous! - first there was the fresh fruit cup, followed by a choice of 2 dishes. It was so fun to be joined in the spacious dining room by the other guests as we all enjoyed our breakfast No coffee maker in our room, but set up right outside the dining room was a table where you could get 'goodies' anytime & fresh brewed coffee was available early/before breakfast. There was also a refrig that could be used by guests. All in all, we had a very pleasant stay & would definitely recommend The Blair House Heritage Breakfast Inn!. . . the house is quite historic - do ask David &/or read about it in the entrance foyer FYI: we crossed over into St. Stephen from Maine, not knowing that once one enters Canada, you're in a different time zone/Atlantic Time Zone - you loose an hour
