Mountain Harbour Bed & Breakfast was originally opened in 2001. We purchased it in July 2003, and after some redecorating we welcomed our first guest August 21, 2003 for race weekend. We strive for our guests to feel welcome, to have comfort at every turn, and to have an island to escape to that is surrounded by nothing but relaxing countryside. Our number one goal is run a business where everything flows. Where the guests feel as welcome in our home as they would in there own. Where the front porch swing is always swaying and the rocking chairs are always rocking.
