Innkeepers, authors and TV stars… Ross and Willa are a busy pair. Since starting the inn in 1991 they have written two cook books and shot 135 of their ‘Tide’s Table’ cookery programmes.....

.... All were shot either at the inn or on the beach below, and have rendered them local celebrities. Ross’s passion for the inn is irrepressible and he believes nurture, personal interaction and genuine warmth are vital to their guests’ enjoyment. He and Willa want to provide a "retreat from reality", a haven where people are "closing the door on the rest of their world". During my stay I met one couple who were enjoying their 22nd such retreat! The emphasis is on pampering: big fluffy robes, double jacuzzis overlooking the Bay of Fundy with its legendary tides, candles, fresh flowers, deep carpets. The house itself was built in 1907 as a wedding present for Percy Manchester, Alexander Graham Bell’s private gardener, and is the only waterfront property in the city, complete with beach and three Suffolk sheep. Having feasted at the original ‘Tide’s Table’, sit on your balcony and enjoy the beauty of the water sparkling in the moonlight. And make sure you leave time for the spa where you can enjoy tweaking and mud wraps galore. Walking and Nature Trails from the inn. Next door to Irving Nature Park.
