This is the proverbial old sea captain’s house, built 100 years ago by one Thomas Townsend. With delightful, salty views of Louisbourg Harbour, the islands and the fortress on the other side of the bay, you’ll be congratulating Capt Townsend and reaching for the binoculars before you’ve unpacked your toothbrush.....

.... Parker’s family have been in the area for years and he was raised in the house itself; nobody is more local. He took the building over from his parents, and a sympathetic extension helped create the sea-front inn that he and Suzanne wanted. From the pale yellow clapboard exterior to the hardwood floors and tranquil atmosphere, all is as it should be. A large first-floor (‘second-floor’ for you Canadians) balcony looks out over the wharves and you can watch crab and lobster fishermen unload their catch. Six of the rooms have harbour views. I rather liked Room 1, which has spruce floors, ivory walls, harbour view, side-balcony and bird-song, while Room 7, with windows on all sides and a two-person jacuzzi, is "great in a storm," says Parker. The inn was repeatedly recommended as I travelled around Nova Scotia and it’s a pleasure to add my voice to the throng. Louisbourg is a delightful old town and its fortress is a National Historic Site.
