Book a room at the Maplehurst Manor in Dorchester, New Brunswick and enjoy the comfort and luxury that it offers. This one-of-a-kind bed and breakfast has been described by guests as having “the warmth and comfort of my grandmother’s house, combined with a subtle elegance.”

Generous Welcome

The manor has a front porch and a grand entrance door that welcomes you to an original and elegant three-story walnut staircase, 10-foot ceilings, ornate plaster medallions, and mouldings. These lead to the grand living room, which measures 30’ x 15’. It is furnished with period furniture and décor that invite you to enjoy the restored slate and natural gas fireplace.


If you wish to have a relaxing time, you can go to one of two quiet coffee nooks for some solitude. The house’s features also include a large bay window overlooking our sister home “Swisscot.” 

Impressive Dining Room and Kitchen

The formal dining room, which is intimate enough for two and large enough for twelve, is where our candle lite breakfasts are served. Our multi course hot gourmet breakfasts are prepared with locally grown ingredients, including farm fresh eggs. The manor is also home to freshly baked cookies and desserts that guests can enjoy.  They go great with an espresso, cappuccino, or latte produced by our European coffee shop styled machine.


The quartz countertops, farmhouse sink, and the warmth of custom cabinetry create a wonderful combination of vintage elegance and modern functionality. Further connections to the history of the house can also be found in the kitchen.  There are two sets of stairs to the servant’s quarters, a couple of quaint pantries, and an exposed brick section of chimney that comes off of the original bread oven used to warm the kitchen in the winter. 

Our Luxurious Suites

There are three suites available. These were created by combining six bedrooms to create three spacious suites.

The Chandler Suite

The largest suite is the “Chandler Suite,” named after the builder of the home, Edward Baron Chandler, and one of the Fathers of Confederation. This second-floor suite has an elegant, functioning original slate, natural gas fireplace, and a large bay window sitting area overlooking our sister home "Swisscot" and rows of beautiful sugar maples.

The furnishings are a mix of period furniture and modern comforts. The en suite bathroom has been described as a sanctuary. It is a very spacious room with an elegant period-appropriate double sink vanity, a generous glass and ceramic walled walk-in shower, with multiple body massage jets, and a rain fall shower head. There’s also a large claw foot soaker tub with vintage styling and faucets to top off the experience.

These features are all surrounded by beautiful ornate Italian ceramic tile, which includes a heated floor to add to your comfort. 

$150 - $180

The Keillor Suite

Another second-floor suite that is very generous is the “Keillor Suite,” named after the prominent Dorchester resident John Keillor, the area’s first postmaster, an appointee to the prestigious role in 1805. His original home is still standing and operating as a museum. A fitting tribute to the elegance of a time gone by.

This room has a large sitting area furnished with a combination of period furniture and modern comforts. A very comfortable queen size sofa bed add to the comfort and capacity of the suite. Topping off the suite is a fully functional gas fireplace surrounded by the original elegant slate.

Our signature en suites carry on here as well. There is a beautiful ornate period vanity, and decor. An inviting, period-styled elegant claw foot tub awaits you. Heated Italian ceramic tile floor add to the comfort of the room as do the large glass and ceramic walled walk-in showers with a rainfall head.

$150 - $180

The Landry Suite

The third-floor suite is the “Landry Suite,” named after another one of many prominent early Dorchester residents, Sir Pierre-Amand Landry. He is the son of Amand Landry, the first Acadian member of the New Brunswick legislative assembly. Pierre was the first Acadian Cabinet Minister in the province. He studied law with another famous Dorchester resident and contributor to Confederation, Albert J. Smith.

This suite also includes a generous sitting area with a view of Shepody Mountain, and the Bay of Fundy. One of the features of the room is a restored coal burning stove from the mid-1800s. This has been brought back to its original condition with a realistic insert that mimics the ambiance of its original use.

The en suite also includes one of our most sought-after elegant features: a large period-styled claw foot soaker tub. Additional amenities include heated ceramic tile floors and a modern glass and ceramic walled walk-in shower, with a rain fall shower head.

$130 - $150

The Patio

One of our most exceptional features is our generous third-floor patio. This year-round space has one of the best views in the village. The hills of Westmorland County to the East, or Shepody Mountain and the Bay of Fundy to the West. A morning coffee at sunrise is stunning. Stargazing at night is spectacular as well.

This space can be enjoyed in the winter with a heater, hot chocolate, and blankets for two, or in the summer with a refreshing drink. There is never a bad view or time of year to enjoy the peace and solitude this space can provide.

If you would prefer a shadier spot, the front porch is a great place where you can unwind, shaded by one of the largest oak trees in the province. For even more privacy, the patio area off of the kitchen may hit the spot. It is nestled by a large gully shaded by many 100-year-old trees.

The comfortable, large private deck is also a nice spot to enjoy a meal or drink. The tranquillity and peacefulness the area provides can be enjoyed on the deck or you can take the exit to explore the acres of beautiful countryside.
