Heritage Quay Bed & Breakfast

Pictou, NS   Offered for sale at 699,000 CAD

Circa 1855, this charming historical house is ideally situated in the thriving, picturesque seaside town of Pictou, Nova Scotia. Located at 90 Front Street, Front street has recently been pronounced a Heritage District within Pictou County because of its rich culture and homes, and this property is one of the Town’s flagship properties. As the backdrop for boutique year-round accommodations and experiential events, this home has been newly renovated inside and out and presents a turn-key opportunity- perfect for an innkeeper who wants to step into an elevated and well-positioned business and hit the ground running with revenue.
Heritage Quay is Pictou's newest and most stately accommodation. There is a known shortfall of places for tourists to stay. Factoring in the fact that it is within walking distance of the quaint waterfront downtown with restaurants, museums, cafes, restaurants, a world-class performing arts centre, and exceptional shopping, Pictou is a rare gem. It is commonly referred to as the gateway to Nova Scotia because of its close proximity to the PEI Ferry, the well-known tourist heritage site The Ship Hector (Hector Heritage Quay), the natural phenomenon Tidal Bore, and home of the world’s largest Lobster Carnival, just to name a few. The riches of Pictou County have always drawn a significant number of tourists to the area, with more than 10,000 visitors on July’s Carnival weekend alone. With only a handful of inns at present, Heritage Quay has fast become a sought-after commodity.
The current owners have completed their vision of restoring the integrity of the historical home and returning it to its original glory. Following an extensive renovation of the property inside and out with MUCH love and attention to detail, the local community has been welcomed through its doors with Christmas and Easter Afternoon Teas. It is seen as a special place to go within the community, shining a light on the beauty of Pictou, the “birthplace of New Scotland”, and all the town has to offer. Pictou has also recently been receiving significant attention from real-state investors, economic development teams, media, and business owners who are looking to plant their flag in a vibrant and budding community- it is on the verge of something big and the local business community, is already seeing the impact of this as we speak.
This 5000-square foot pristine home boasts five guest suites with bathrooms, a dedicated top floor Owner’s Quarters with its own private entrance (and additional bathroom, bedroom, living room, etc), 13-foot ceilings on the main floor with grand mouldings and architectural details throughout, a newly constructed farmhouse kitchen with the original preserved stone fireplace, a second floor sitting area, a multipurpose room (perfect for corporate events), and so much more. The high-profile brand has been built and the business is off to a rapid start.
