With the recent addition of the five-star Barachois Inn, Prince Edward Island now has 20 attractions, sites and accommodations listed in the national bilingual Heritage, Culture and Tourism Corridor.

The inn consists of two main buildings, including the Gallant House, built in 1880 by one of the region's most successful merchants, Joseph Gallant and the MacDonald House, a more recent building that offers four large suites that bring a modern feel to a historic era.

Both houses offer visitors a choice of eight different styles of private accommodations, ranging from traditional Victorian rooms to luxury suites with scenic vistas over the Island's north shore, winding waterways and lovely Victorian gardens. 

Owner Judy MacDonald promises personalized service, a commitment to quality and a vacation to remember.

"Beautifully appointed, rich with antiques, superb breakfasts, immersion in comfort and privacy and the genuine hospitality of the MacDonald family," says the description of the inn on its individual page of the corridor portal. 

The same page also shows a 44-second video clip, seven photos of the site (exterior, bedrooms, kitchen and living room) and a photo of the Farmers' Bank.

The Barachois Inn is open year-round, including now during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Those who are interested may explore the portal at corridorcanada.ca and then go to the Prince Edward Island section to view profiles of the 20 Island members.
