Located on the Bay of Fundy, it is a 15-room Nova Scotia Provincial Heritage Property built in 1859. The Inn’s past guests include Prince George of Wales in 1884 and King George V. It’s a real piece of living history where some rooms even have four-poster beds. Near the heart of Annapolis Royal, it’s surrounded by kid-friendly lawns and is just a short walk from the Historic Gardens and the town’s restaurants and shops.
