Welcome to Our Home!

Welcome to our restored St. Paul’s Anglican Church Rectory in the beautiful seaside village of Port Morien, Cape Breton Island. Our home was built in 1885 by the parishioners of the village during the time when Port Morien was an active fishing and coal mining community of 3,000 persons. The rectory was the home of numerous rectors and their families until the end of 2004.

The Port Morien Rectory B&B displays some characteristics of the Italianate style of architecture popular in the second half of the 19th Century. It is a large squarish high-pitched roof, two-story building, with a shallow projecting centre bay and gable roof encompassing the two floors.

The restoration process 2005-2006 returned the building to its late Victorian roots and glamour. The inside was returned to its original plaster walls and hemlock plank flooring. Wall coloration was selected to mimic era colours. Two new bathrooms were created for guest use. 

Our Four Star B&B was awarded Cape Breton Regional Municipality Heritage Home status in 2007.
