David’s 9pm communion of hot chocolate, tea and biscuits is only one of the many traditions that makes this a great B&B. I arrived just in time for this daily treat, and found my fellow guests exchanging travel tales over steaming mugs.....

.... David, a charming, laid-back Englishman, was busy chatting and ensuring everyone was happy. Breakfast in the sunny dining room was an equally sociable affair, although the delights emerging from the kitchen made it hard to concentrate on conversation. Such conviviality is just a bonus in a place which spoils you anyway. Named after Henrietta Blair, for whom it was built in 1860, Blair House is an ornate Italianate building, its distinctive arched windows seen on only one other house in town. Architecture aside, the style is of understated luxury. The rooms are cosy and inviting and the beds deliciously comfortable - no frills, just casual elegance. Wallowing in your claw-foot tub is personally recommended while the wide landing with its wicker chairs and bay window is a great spot to survey the USA over the St Croix River. Blair House is the last bastion of Canadian hospitality before you cross over to Maine and is everything a B&B should be. St Stephen’s is a chocoholic’s paradise, being the home of Ganong’s Chocolatier and the Chocolate Museum.
