We had a very enjoyable stay at The Owens House while on Campobello. The Inn itself is a historic and interesting building. The sunsets seen from the front yard were beautiful. Breakfasts were family style and very good. Staff at the Inn arranged for reservations for dinner and a very good three hour guided tour of the island.

The most expensive room had twin beds and the mattresses are very old and lumpy. The towels are old and worn and there is no stopper in the bathroom sink. There is no television. For the price, we would expect nice towels and mattresses. The good news is the hostess is very nice and welcoming.

Just spent two nights at the Owen House on beautiful Campobello Island, NB. This is not our first visit and we always look forward to returning! The Owen House, which overlooks the water, is a beautiful 19th century house with its history reflected in every room. It is the original house with wood floors, antique windows, fireplaces, and furnishings, with large porches for outdoor lounging and lovely living rooms, one with TV, for indoor relaxation. Coffee is available for early risers and the homemade breakfast varies daily and is delicious. The staff is friendly and accommodating, as is the manager Jan. The owner’s art decorates the inn and is available for purchase.We will definitely return...again!

Room tip: Wifi is free and in the dining room. Really worth a room overlooking the water.

This beautiful historic home is only surpassed by Jan and Joyce, our uniquely talented owners / hosts of The Owen House. They were a wealth of information about the history of Admiral Owen, his home and Campobello Island in general. These two ladies are an integral part of this island community and their hospitable demeanor made our stay very enjoyable.

We choose the Owen House for a 2 night stay due to its location on the island and the beautiful ocean vista which both lived up to the descriptions. We had Room #2 with a beautiful ocean view, comfortable twin beds, and an original wood tank toilet which worked very well. I would agree with some other reviews that the house being very old, has some challenges such as sloping floors, windows that don't open (fire escape hazard) and if allergies, a musty smell in some of the common rooms.

The service staff was extremely helpful and friendly with suggestions on things to see and places to eat. However, the overall feel to the inn is one of rules, rigidity, lacking in warmth, and not friendly. The manager had strict rules on what time the door is locked at night (8:30 PM while we were there) and everyone had to eat breakfast together at 8:30 AM sharp which does encourage meeting new people and learning new things. A wake-up knock on the door was at 8:00 AM and as other reviews have noted, you are asked to wait in the parlor until you are seated and even after arriving at 8:28 AM, we were shunned as being late. There are other rules as well which were not explained or written anywhere. We brought our dinner back to the inn one night as it was a foggy and rainy night and didn't want to be driving in the dark. I noted I had a bottle of wine and was told by the manager that if it was red wine (which it was), it could not be consumed in the house due to possible stains. There was a feeling that you were an unwelcomed guest in someone else's home. Joyce, the owner, never appeared. Other issues..wifi is only available in the dining room, the outside has no definitive path to the front door with a sloping lawn with poor to no lighting at night, and no flexibility on food choices for breakfast. Breakfast is a set menu and although wonderful eggs and pancakes, there are no substitute/alternatives for meats such as bacon and a pork based sausage.

We tried hard to like the Inn, but in the end decided we would probably not book there again.

Room tip: Read the reviews as there are comments about the different rooms.
