Welcome to
Canada's Most Historic Inn

The Bailey House is an exquisite journey into the earliest chapters of North American history


Nestled on the waterfront of the idyllic seaside harbour of Annapolis Royal, the Bailey House is an accommodation unlike any other in North America. The history of our town goes back farther than Quebec, Jamestown or Plymouth. While a building has likely stood on this property from at least the 1650s, today’s inn dates from 1770.  We began offering our legendary hospitality to global travellers around 1832.

The amenities of the inn are luxuriously updated to meet the needs of modern travellers while still delivering an intimate and unforgettable experience as Canada’s Most Historic Inn.

History and beauty are everywhere in Annapolis Royal. Explore the old capital of Acadia and Nova Scotia, including several national historic sites, whale watching, wineriesgolfing, `hiking and cycling – Annapolis Royal has it all, and the Bailey House is at the historic heart. Our inn is directly on the water with incredible views of the world’s highest tides.


Experience traditional warmth with modern luxury. The inn is curated with museum quality antiques spanning four centuries, yet appointed with the amenities of a luxury boutique hotel.

Each room at the Bailey House has its own unique design and theme.


Make memories to last a lifetime. Whether it is an intimate wedding, group retreat or a celebration of one of life’s many milestones, it would be our pleasure to host you.
