   Bed & Breakfast   



Welcome to the Louisbourg Harbour Inn and the Louisbourg Heritage House, our two seaside sister inns. Both inns are located in the heart of the historic town of Louisbourg on beautiful Cape Breton Island.

Between our two Victorian-style bed and breakfasts we offer 13 comfortable and relaxing rooms, most with ocean views and balconies, all with modern room amenities and ensuite bathrooms, and every morning a substantial complimentary breakfast.


Our inns are proudly family-owned and run by Innkeeper Parker Bagnell, who grew up in the house now known as the Louisbourg Harbour Inn.


We feel fortunate to live in such a beautiful corner of the world, and we love sharing it with our guests, whether through the area’s history, our personal stories, or through our recommendations for local adventures during your stay.

Each of our rooms is unique with its own character. Between our two historic bed and breakfast inns we offer beautifully renovated guest rooms with all the warmth, charm and special touches you'll only find in a heritage home.




Every morning we serve guests of both inns a complimentary freshly prepared,
