Blue Tin Roof Bed & Breakfast: A relaxing escape...

A Rural Retreat with a View of the Land & Sea

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.
