Inspired by the grace and charm of this marvelous revival style home - as lovely today as it was the day it was built in 1870 - but with all the modern amenities. As wild and natural as Nova Scotia herself, the Dragonfly has its own rare beauty. A Registered Heritage Property restored with particular attention to detail, it offers a uniquely stylish and eclectic atmosphere decorated with charming pieces of Canadiana mixed with treasures from travels far and wide.
There's nothing typical about the Dragonfly Inn - which is what attracted us to it in the first place. Alive with vibrant colour and rich textures both inside and out - it is an exceptional beauty. It's fine lines and open facade are complimented by nearly an acre of green space, gardens and mature trees including the grand poplars that frame our front yard standing gracefully in place for over one hundred years.
Our approach to esthetic and design remains simple, elegant and casual - we think of it as "eclectic" some how it works. Within this facility we offer two complimentary styles of accomodation; the Bed and Breakfast in the main house, sinfully decadent and adult focused, 4 1/2 star luxury operates April 1 - October 15. The Coach House, once a stylish place to park those new fangled motorcars, now six rooms (three bottom, three top) charmingly decorated, completely self-contained, rated at 3 1/2 stars, totally familiy friendly at a budget friendly price operating April 1 - November 30.
