Windsor House of St Andrews
Built by Loyalists in 1798, no. 132 Water Street has been reincarnated many times: private residence, hotel, boarding house and stage coach stop, it’s done them all.....
.... Hence when Jay and Greg bought it in 1996, the soul of this noble old building was in a sorry state of neglect. For the next two and a half years over a hundred local craftsmen were employed in one of the largest historic renovations New Brunswick (perhaps even Canada?) has witnessed. The house was meticulously restored to its original Georgian splendour, whilst retaining some of the finer Victorian elements. Windsor House is now an inn of the highest calibre. A sojourn here combines culture and indulgence. You can admire the museum-quality art collection while sipping one of their 80 wines. Among countless other treasures the inn houses one of the largest collections of Landseer engravings in North America. And in the bedrooms perfectionism has triumphed. After you’ve soaked in your claw-foot tub with hand-made soaps, you’ll step onto Italian marble mosaic floors. Beautiful antiques abound throughout, and every room has a fresh orchid, original wooden flooring and Persian rugs. The fact that it is one of only three ‘Four Diamond’ restaurants in Atlantic Canada is the icing on the cake. St Andrews has numerous attractions including whale-watching, golf and nautical activities.
