The Barachois Inn is nestled in the historic Acadian community of Rustico, circa 1763. Located at the heart of Prince Edward Island, we are less than a half hour drive from the Capital City of Charlottetown, only 70 miles/28 kms It is a large, elegant Second Empire building with Georgian influences, with a prominent Mansard roof characteristic of houses of the era, and has been described as a fine example of its architectural style and design. The Inn is furnished with historic and contemporary art, crafts and period antiques. Our guests are welcome to use the common rooms at their leisure for activities, get-togethers and games.
The Inn consists of two main houses, the Gallant House – built in 1880 by one of the area’s most successful merchants, Joseph Gallant – and the MacDonald House, a newer facility offering four large suites that bring a modern feel to a historic era. These two houses provide our guests with the choice of eight different styles of private accommodations from traditional Victorian rooms to luxury suites, with scenic vistas over the Island’s north shore, winding waterways and our Victorian Garden.
We are happy to welcome families with children aged 7 years and up. Our Inn is not appropriate for very young children.
