Step back to the turn of the century, an era of grace and grandeur. This beautifully appointed master bedroom with its bayed front window overlooks the center of town and offers a sunny western exposure. The décor, in a strong burgundy colour pallet, offers its visitors a realistic encounter with the rich past the original owners experienced in this home. From the custom draperies and period furnishings to the 400 count cotton bed linen, no detail has been spared. The nicely appointed ensuite features a whirlpool spa, heated floor and personal accessories one would expect from the finest inns in North America.


1900 Grand Victorian Queen Room

Toward the end of the Victorian Era, many prominent North Americans tired of the dark and complex interiors of the past generation. Grand Victorian homes went though rapid changes to keep up with the new times. Out with the old and in with the new became the direction many took as they brought their treasured home into the 20th century. Light natural colour pallets were the rage and this room is no exception. This main bedroom, with its bayed front, overlooks the center of town and features a sunny western exposure. The décor, in medium tone greens, creamy whites and light carpeting, invites the outside in and connects one with nature. A private ensuite features a whirlpool spa, heated floor and personal accessories one would expect of this fine North American inn.

1910 New Era Queen Room

In the early 1920’s construction soured as many returned home from the war. The demand of many young North Americans for urban housing lead to the construction of affordable inner city flats. These buildings, known as post war apartments, were fashioned with a revived French theme. Interiors of these flats received architectural style from the mid-16th century. Raised paneling and decorative ornamentation turned box shaped rooms into elegant detailed parlours and boudoirs. The 1920’s room honors that period of interior décor. French in style, rose in color with white accents, this room has a sunny southern exposure.

1920 The Roaring Queen Room

Originally the MacKinnon-Cann Inn was built as two private homes (duplex) for the Goudey sisters. Our restoration combined these two residences into a thirty room mansion for its current use. The main floor of the inn has four formal parlours and two original dining rooms. The 1930’s room is actually the formal dining room on the south side of the building. A bright southeast room offers those with special physical needs the comfort and accessibility required during your stay. Architecturally this room features the original china closet made of black walnut and oak. Today it is outfitted with cable television, data port and storage for your personal use. Decorated in the Art Deco period your journey through time is further enhanced by waterfall inlaid furnishings and period lighting. Your private ensuite bath features a heated floor and large tile shower.

1930 The Great Formal Dining Room

Step back to Hollywood circa 1940’s. The silver screen is lit with such names as Betty Davis and Joan Crawford in memorable movies like “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.” Many may remember the 1970’s movie “Mommy Dearest” a recount of the twisted world behind the scenes of Joan Crawford’s personal life between the public and her adopted children. This film set in the 1940’s became the inspiration for the décor of the 1940’s Room at the MacKinnon-Cann Inn. White on white, minimal and elegant, offering a welcoming eastern exposure, this space will transport its guests back to the era of glamour and glitz of the silver screen lifestyle. A common question, “Are you ready for your close-up!” Ensuite features a lavish 1940’s 4 piece bath complete with a wonderful over-sized period soaking tub and heated floor. And don’t worry, you won’t find any wire coat hangers!

1940 Mommy Dearest Queen Room

The inspiration for this room was Lucy and Desi Arnez’s bedroom in “I Love Lucy.” This room offers twin beds, because, after all, no one slept together in the 50’s, at least in TV world. With a bright northern exposure, its Robin’s Egg Blue reflects the spirit of the period in the use this colour throughout the decorating theme. Adjust the “rabbit ears” on the television, kick back, and enjoy the latest episode of Lucy’s crazy antics as she auditions for the “Vitameatavegamine Commercial!” The ensuite features a whirlpool spa, not a common element in the 1950’s but, whatever, it’s really 2015 for comfort. A fun room with all the amenities for which this inn is noted.

1950 Lucy Twin Room

Welcome to the 60’s. Don’t worry, not the “far out 60’s” but the Danish Modern days. A visual -- Rob and Laura Petries living room in the 1960’s hit TV sitcom “The Dick Vandyke Show!” Brick wall, earth tones, textures and high style, at least as high style as we got in the 1960’s. This room with its eastern exposure welcomes you to a new day full of bright light and sunshine. The shutters on the windows are a must for those who enjoy a late rise. A private ensuite with 4 piece period fixtures and heated floor provides comfort beyond the 60’s. Take advantage of this experience; you won’t be sorry!
