Welcome to Jonah Place, our charming, fully air-conditioned, Victorian 4-star Bed & Breakfast Inn, located in the friendly Mural Town of Sussex, New Brunswick. The home was built in the Italianate inspired Classic Revival style and is designated one of Canada’s Historic Places.With the characteristic charm of a Bed & Breakfast and the comfort of an Inn, Jonah Place is the perfect destination for your vacation or weekend getaway, as well as a special location for your wedding or meeting. At 3700 plus square feet, the Inn is spacious, however we still offer our guests personal attention and service. Opened in 1992 as the first Bed & Breakfast Inn in Sussex, Jonah Place has since welcomed many guests from every corner of the world. Jonah Place Bed & Breakfast Inn is located in a beautiful heritage home built in 1884 and named after Judge Harry Jonah, who lived here as a boy and whose family owned the house from 1910 to 1962.
The unique Victorian architectural details of the house, have remained well-preserved over the years. As a guest at Jonah Place, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the high ceilings with decorative crown mouldings, vast bay windows, impressive marble fireplaces, and “log cabin” style hardwood floors.
Throughout the house you will find beautiful antiques and period pieces from North America and the Continent, as well as various collectables and “treasures” gathered during our personal travels. Within this historical background, Jonah Place offers five tastefully decorated guest rooms, all equipped with contemporary comfort. In our sunny breakfast parlour we offer the luxury of choice. Each day you will be able to select from 5 delicious gourmet offerings, changing daily. We use local produce and goods wherever possible to highlight the bounty of New Brunswick.
During your stay, you will have the two spacious and comfortable parlours at your disposal. Feel free to relax with complimentary coffee or tea and enjoy the peace and quiet by the fireplace with one of our many books, magazines, puzzles or board games. You will find televisions, DVD players and local telephones in all guest rooms. We also offer “password protected” wireless internet throughout the property as well as a guest computer station in the main entrance hallway.
Jonah Place has a large, secluded garden with a variety of trees and plants where you can enjoy the view of the surrounding hills or spend some quiet time sipping on a drink in one of the lawn chairs, on the veranda or the front deck. Sussex is a bird watchers paradise with many species found here that are not readily present in the rest of Canada. Deer often frequent the property.
