I recently met the owner of The Pleasant Street Inn. Heidi invited me over to tour the Inn and I gladly accepted as this house is one of several we viewed when we were looking for a home in late October 2020. What an amazing transformation this former Odd Fellows Hall, whose members rented the upstairs to the local Free Masons Lodge, has undergone! Heidi was the woman with the clear vision this place needed. The house has been completely renovated to a very high standard.
I walked over to The Pleasant Street Inn one afternoon last week anticipating a beautiful place after viewing the ads on FaceBook during the time of the grand opening in July. Entering through the garden gate and leaving the spacious parking space behind Heidi greeted me at the guest entrance ushering me into the heart of the Inn…
The kitchen is bright, well equipped, the spacious island offers plenty of space for those special breakfasts and the comfy couch invites visitors to lounge while waiting to be served or just enjoy a coffee or tea. I wanted to move into this tranquil and sparkling clean space permanently.
Heidi guided me up the wide original staircase that will make it easy to carry visitors’ luggage to the rooms. The landing at the top provides space for brochures and general information about special destinations the area has to offer.
Turning left one enters the hallway through the original Free Masons Lodge door complete with peep hole. I did not take a picture as I hope anyone reading this post will be so intrigued that they will book The Pleasant Street Inn for their next visit to Parrsboro! The hall way leading to the three unique guest rooms is well lit and provides more creature comforts such as a coffee station and a kettle for tea.
Room 1 is the most spacious complete with ensuite. The soothing colour scheme provides a calming vibe and promises a luxurious stay.
Room 2 is located at the end of the hall. It boasts private access to the balcony with a fabulous view over the inner harbour with its tidal river. I am told that it is the choice room for guests who love to watch the sunrise.
Room 3 is akin to entering a cloud. Upon opening the door one is immediately enveloped by the soft colour scheme and comfortable furnishings.
Rooms 2 and 3 share a bathroom at the end of the hall just a few steps away.
The fully fenced back yard (this is a pet friendly inn) provides shelter from rain, wind and sun. Imagine spending time in here with a pre-dinner drink before heading out to one of the nearby restaurants…
The Pleasant Street Inn is centrally located. Once you park your car it’s only a few steps to Main Street with its restaurants or to the Ships Company Theatre. I know I will be encouraging friends and family who visit to book a room for their stay at The Pleasant Street Inn. I was ready to head home, pack a suitcase and return to get spoiled by Heidi. I hear her breakfasts are already legendary!
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of The Pleasant Street Inn this morning. I know Heidi’s Pleasant Street Inn will be the choice place to stay here in Parrsboro. Please visit her website for more images, information, booking availability and pricing. And let me know if you are coming to town so we can meet up!
Best wishes, Anna
