Port Morien Rectory B&B


One of very few Bed and Breakfasts in Cape Breton with an ocean view from all three bedrooms, is being offered for sale! This 1885 Municipal Heritage property boasts history, comfort, elegance, and character. Completely renovated since 2006, this 4-star B&B was formerly the St Paul’s Anglican Church Rectory and continues to be the centre piece of the fishing village of Port Morien.

The owners have owned the property since late 2005 and have operated the Rectory as a seasonal B&B since 2006. The property provides an ideal opportunity to live comfortably in a classic home and have a part-time business during the June through mid-October tourist season. The owners have used two of their three bedrooms for B&B purposes; but easily the owner’s bedroom could become a prized accommodation during the tourist season. Currently one of the two rooms available for rent has an ensuite; the other has a private 3-piece dedicated bath. The third bedroom, currently used privately by the owners, has an ensuite bath.

In addition to the bedrooms upstairs, a small sitting room with ocean view is located at the end of the hall with immediate access to two of the bedrooms.
The large attic could be easily developed into private or seasonal accommodations.
Downstairs features two large entrance-ways, a well-appointed kitchen with pantry, an adjacent combined laundry room with ½ bath, a 9’x6’ room currently used as an office/library (suitable as a seasonal bedroom), with spacious dining and living rooms.

The renovations and upgrades include top to bottom cosmetic repairs (ie returning papered walls to its original plaster; exposing the original hemlock flooring), two new bathrooms, new vinyl siding and roof, two heat pumps, a high-performance generator, new windows throughout, two decks, an outside screen room and storage shed.

This B&B can be negotiated as a turnkey operation; completely furnished with some antiques, linens, amenities, website, and most importantly, reputation.

Asking Price: $174,500 (house only)
