The space

Join Us at One of Annapolis Royal’s Most Iconic Heritage Properties. Hillsdale House Inn was built in 1859 by Susan Forbes Foster. She operated Hillsdale House as a first-rate inn, and for more than 150 years the inn has been accommodating visitors to Annapolis Royal.

The inn offers 13 well-appointed guestrooms combining a refreshing mix of Victorian charm, timeless hospitality and many of the comforts of modern lifestyle. Our goal is to weave the intimacy of a bed & breakfast inn with the privacy and conveniences of a small hotel; the best of both worlds.

Imagine relaxing after your full country breakfast in the Foster or Perkins Parlour, on the covered or open veranda, or in the gardens. Oh yes, you won’t need to stop for lunch!

Guest access

Guests have access to two large indoor parlours, as well as, two outdoor verandas (one covered) and expansive green space and gardens.

Interaction with guests

The innkeepers live in the property and are available to assist guests with local information and recommendations.

We are conveniently located within the historic Town of Annapolis Royal (a federally designated National Historic District) and a short drive from the world renowned Bay of Fundy. The inn sits on a 12-acre estate, with manicured lawns, stately trees and numerous gardens.

Getting around

Other things to note

Stay with us while you tour the area and explore the nearby Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens, Fort Anne and Port Royal National Historic Sites, and numerous other attractions.

Hillsdale House Inn is amazing. We were greeted as a Thanksgiving function was in progress with a glass of champagne and a very helpful Flora (Val was cooking). We were well looked after in every way. Breakfast is amazing, no need for lunch. Vals muffins are to die for. The Inn is in excellent condition inside and out, the grounds are gorgeous. Annapolis Royal is a beautiful location. The Inn is a close walk to restaurants and the boardwalk. Highly recommended.

Val greeted us when we arrived. Everything about the inn was open and welcoming. We could smell baking bread as we walked in the door. Val directed us to a lovely restaurant in Annapolis Royal for our last night in the area. She encouraged us to go on the candlelight graveyard tour at Fort Anne. Even in a light mist, the tour was very enlightening about the fascinating history of Annapolis Royal. The breakfast was delicious; the service friendly and professional. Every element--the books, the lamps, the furniture, the rugs--all evoked a more gracious and elegant era. Great inn.
