With adorable towns come adorable accommodations, and this is certainly the case in New Brunswick. Though much of the province is wide-open space, the coastal towns are home to a couple of these charming and luxurious hotels. Here are a couple of our favorites:
1. Kingsbrae Arms. Housed in a circa-1897 country house, this intimate inn overlooks the breathtaking Passamaquoddy Bay. Nearby are a renowned golf course, art galleries and the old town of St. Andrews. Though it is only open for the summer months, Kingsbrae Arms is worth the trip. Each suite has a gas fireplace, marble bathroom and a separate living room. The restaurant is popular with locals and visitors alike, thanks to its focus on fresh, seasonal and local food, particularly seafood. Settle in for a pre-determined menu of several courses, and enjoy a bottle from the award-winning cellar.
2. The Fairmont Algonquin. This seaside resort overlooks Passamaquoddy Bay, with an area of tidal changes that varies 28 feet between the high and low tides. Guestrooms feature period décor in the main historic building and a more contemporary style in the 1993 Prince of Wales wing. The four-floor rooms, originally the servants’ quarters, offer the best views of the bay and surrounding countryside.
