The Town of Antigonish is a pleasant 30 minute scenic drive for all your essentials.

Our  home was constructed over a two year period. The structure combines local pines and portions of a 200 year old barn from Ontario, which we dismantled and shipped ourselves. Our post and beam home was built by skilled local craftsmen. You will enjoy our keen eye for details as we mixed old with new in a modern adaptation for a bed and breakfast.

Being centrally located between Prince Edward Island and Cape Breton is only one of many reasons why the Blue Tin Roof will be your B & B of choice when in the area.

We invite you to stay at our B&B and enjoy our informal, relaxed atmosphere. Our breakfast features a self-service hot continental style breakfast served between 8-9 AM.
