About our Home
The house was built in the 1870's for John P. Sullivan, a prominent merchant and farmer in the village of St. Peters Bay.
It is characterized as being influenced by Second Empire architectural styles which include the dominant mansard roof with dormers. In 1915 the home became the Manse for the adjacent Presbyterian (now United) church, until the early 1960's. The front parlour in the house was a favorite spot for many couples to be married in. Since the late 1990's it has operated as a Bed and Breakfast welcoming guests from around the world. Previously named, TírnanÓg Inn is a provincially registered Heritage Place * Click here to read an extended history *
