|The Inn At Bay Fortune is ideally located on 46 acres in Eastern PEI, the home of some of the best beaches on the Island. Known throughout Canada for our innovative use of Island products, home of television’s cooking show “The Inn Chef,” and recognized by Where to Eat in Canada as “the best place to stay on the Island, and certainly the most exciting place to eat,” the Inn provides a relaxed, casual atmosphere in unforgettable surroundings.
Built in 1910, the Inn’s distinctive architecture is reflective of its Maritime setting. Weathered shingles, sloped roofs and traditional details characterize its charm. Bay Fortune is a constant companion as you wander our grounds. The view is an ever present reminder of the ocean and its many moods.
We offer 17 bedrooms and beautiful suites to choose from, all wonderful no matter your tastes. From the spacious North Tower suites, to the main house Rose and Green rooms, we guarantee you’ll fall in love with any of our rooms just as soon as you walk in the door!
The Inn At Bay Fortune was originally the private summer home of Broadway playwright Elmer Harris who bought the property in 1908 and built what is now the Inn as his summer home in 1910. It was also owned by actress Colleen Dewhurst (Marilla, Anne of Green Gables). In 1988, the property was purchased and renovated into an Inn and restaurant.
The “Inn Chef” television series with host and Chef Michael Smith filmed 65 episodes at The Inn at Bay Fortune from 1998 – 2000. Michael still calls Bay Fortune his home and the launch of his career.
The Kitchen Gardens and grounds at The Inn At Bay Fortune have become a destination of their own. Our gardeners have created some of the most unique and productive gardens in Maritime Canada. Their distinguishing approach combines time-honoured organic gardening traditions with contemporary techniques. When you visit the Inn be sure to take the time to stroll around the property enjoying the vast variety of native and imported species that comprise our gardens. There are numerous other gardens sprinkled around the lush grounds of the Inn including Mrs. Harris’ garden, a recreation of a turn-of-the-century garden that once graced Bay Fortune.
There are four ways to dine at the Inn: a three course Table d’hÃ´te menu; an Ã la carte menu; our Chef’s five course Tasting Menu; and our Chef’s Table, a room within the kitchen available to only one party each evening (seating from 2 to 8 guests). The first three will have you dining on the verandah overlooking the water and the Chef’s Table gives you all of the show and action of a restaurant kitchen, but the comfort of a private dining room with lots of interaction with the chef and kitchen crew.
