InnThe graciousness and charm of yesteryear has come to life in this lovely restored Inn, located in Tignish, Prince Edward Island, Canada. Beautiful old trim, wide staircases and high ceilings are just some of the features of this historic building. The hardwood covered hallways on the main floor lead to large spacious rooms which have been restored and decorated to suit the elegance of the brick building originally built in the 1860’s. Each of the 17 rooms, decorated in one of three colour schemes, show off a breathtaking view of the grounds and surrounding areas within Tignish.

The Heritage Inn also offers Experiential Tours. Click here for details and schedules.

    I remember being in your Inn in 1944 (when it was still A Convent) My grandmother was the housekeeper at the priest house nearby , and had many “nun friends” who resided at the convent. Her name was Catherine MacDonald, and the priest there was Fr John Macdonald (no relation). A handyman also worked there (Arthur Arsenault) he attended to the chores at the priest house and convent inc; taking care of the barn, horses, wagons and sleds.

      A lovely story, James Broderick. I hope someone from the Inn replies to you. Such a great memory passed on should not be wasted!

    • My mother Maria Jones attended the convent as a student from about 1939 to 1943. She was the valedictorian in her graduating class.
