This century-old sea captain's house, in which the innkeeper himself was born, was built by Captain Thomas Townsend, a descendant of a prominent officer who fought in the 1758 siege of Louisbourg and was later granted this property for his service.
Located just off Main Street, the inn is situated overlooking the harbour next to a working fishing wharf and the Louisbourg Playhouse. There are eight beautifully decorated guest rooms, six of which overlook the historic harbour. Each has a queen bed, en suite bathroom, hardwood floors and high ceilings. The guest balcony, overlooking the water, affords excellent views of the fishing boats, wharves and the Fortress and ocean beyond.
