This hotel makes a good base for exploring Louisbourg thanks to its views sunny ocean-view rooms, a convenient location just minutes away from the fortress, and a restaurant that features costumed servers and an authentic Cape Breton menu.
Louisbourg Harbour Inn
This century-old sea captain's house, in which the inn keeper 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 harbor next to a working fishing wharf and the Louisbourg Playhouse. There are eight beautifully decorated guest rooms, six of which overlook the historic harbor. 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.
