Blomidon Inn – Wolfville, Nova Scotia, Canada taken in August 2010

Featured in Shelters – 22 October 2012

This splendid old house was built over a century ago by a prosperous ship builder. Originally called the Perth House by its original owner, Rufus Burgess, it has seen many owners as well as many different uses from private homes to apartment building to its current use as an Inn.

In 1980, the doors opened for guests to stay in the “Blomidon Inn”. There were 11 guest rooms handsomely decorated with fine antiques and quilts. Breakfast was served to the Inn guests. In 1981 elegant country dining was offered to guests and outsiders. By 1985, the “Blomidon Inn” was a flourishing 21 room Country Inn, with a highly reputable dining room.

A more detailed history of this fine old Inn can be found here.

    I want to stay there!! :) Lovely capture.

  • Thank you, Judith. After reading some of the Inn guest reviews, I’m not so certain I’d want to stay overnight, but I can certainly testify to the quality of a good meal there. (Smile)

    Ohhh :) Well I’ll be happy to enjoy the meal and stay someplace else :)

  • Hehehe. If you’re ever in the area, Judith, there’s a great little family run motel, Allens Motel, in Wolfville. Super clean, very reasonable rates that include breakfast. teh money you save will help pay for lunch at the Inn. Big Smile
